GETTING PAID TO HAVE FUN
This was my first assignment with Models Direct so I was really nervous beforehand, but after meeting the client and the other girls my nerves settled a little bit. The assignment involved promoting a new designer clothes store in London. Towards the end I actually felt like I was getting paid to have fun!

ONE STEP CLOSER TO MY DREAMS
I enjoyed working as a model promoter on this assignment. The best part of the assignment was getting the phone call from my Models Direct. It was a great feeling knowing that I was considered. I would really recommend this agency to everyone as they are very professional and government regulated so the clients are carefully selected by them. I decided to join this agency to get some good experience and get one step closer to my dreams of becoming a commercial model.

A GREAT STEP UP INTO THE INDUSTRY
I had a great day working as a promotional model for a designer clothing store on this assignment. I met some lovely people and I really appreciated being given the opportunity to represent Models Direct. I was eager to meet the people I would be working with who turned out to be very friendly. I would definitely recommend the experience, as you are able to work alongside a great team. If you are thinking of joining this agency I would say go ahead - it's a great step up into the industry.

I was looking forward to the assignment the money and the girls that I was working with kept me motivated. I enjoyed being a promotional model for a new shop as I love fashion - it was for a top designer clothes store in Oxford Circus. I gained some good experience and improved my confidence. I am glad I decided to join with Models Direct as it has given me an insight in to what promotion is all about!

The assignment was good fun. I had to generate interest in a new shop as a promotional model. I picked up and built upon my previous experience of doing this kind of work. It is a good experience, you become confident in experimenting with different methods of generating interest. It is a good as you get to meet new people, acquire new skills - and have the chance to make some money! I decided to join Models Direct to gain some new experiences and achieve new things.

A PERFECT FIT
I am having fun working on the assignments as a shoe fitting model for Matalan, even though it was the first time I'd ever done anything like this before it was an enjoyable experience and I am pleased to be working with them. Models Direct are very helpful whenever I need to contact them, and they always answer any queries and questions I have - I would recommend working with them.

AN EDUCATIONAL SHOOT
I had such an amazing time being a model and actress yesterday - I got to be nurse at an actual hospital. With it being my first assignment I was pretty nervous on my way to the hospital but as soon as I got there and met everyone I felt instantly at ease and much more confident. I couldn't name just one part of the day that was the most enjoyable as I had great fun the whole day. Playing a nurse was fun and I got to keep the uniform which was a nice little added bonus. The shoot was for a patch that is soon to be launched in hospitals for cancer patients so the shoot was also very educational. I would definitely recommend doing this to friends as it does give you an amazing high and a big confidence boost. It was so nice to meet other people and share experiences... one of the guys had actually worked with Speilberg! I joined Models Direct a while ago and was starting to lose faith, but it is fully restored now and I am very glad I signed up!

MASTERING NEW SKILLS
I felt really privileged to be recruited as a promotional model for 3 weekends running! I felt a little nervous, but I am confident and love socialising and meeting new people. When I got there all the girls were lovely and I found that I had lots in common with the majority of them - we got on so well! I am still in regular contact with the girls from the agency and I had great fun throughout the whole assignment. The assignment involved meeting and greeting the guests, seating them and looking after them throughout their stay. I learnt new skills such as how to carry a tray with 8 drinks on it and not spill any of them, it was on the last day I mastered this. It is definitely something I would love to do again - my favourite part was socialising with all of the guests and making sure that they were being well looked after and that I was doing my job as expected. I would certainly recommend this assignment as it was a good experience and if you are sociable confident and helpful then this is the perfect assignment for you. This was my first assignment and the main reason I wanted to do it was because it was full of variety and used a lot of different skills. Joining this agency is great because it allows you to get work suited to your talents. The main factor that encouraged me to join Models Direct was the opportunity to be involved in a wide spectrum of areas within the industry. Fantastic experience – I am looking forward to the next assignment.

This was my first assignment and it was great, I really enjoyed the whole experience. I felt a little bit nervous at the beginning but once I started it was all okay. I was a promotional model and I had to make sure everything went well, socialize, take people to their tables and serve them drinks. The best part about the assignment was meeting new people and earning money. Everyone was friendly and the job itself was fun and enjoyable. This experience has made me feel more confident and I would love to do an assigment like this again. My personal ambition made me decide to join up with Models Direct.

HARD WORK BUT FUN-FILLED
My assignment was great. All three days were hard work but were fun-filled and all within a relaxed environment. We were required to socialise with guests and make sure they were happy, keep their drinks were topped up and generally provide a good service. It was good to meet other people within the industry that your working with and the team were great fun. If it wasn't for this Models Direct I wouldn't have had this experience. Thank you.

KEEP FOLLOWING YOUR DREAM
I had a great experience on the assignment and everyone was very professional and welcoming. I was informed thoroughly about the activity on arrival so I knew exactly what to do. I enjoyed woking with lots of different people and everyone was very polite and nice. I was required to serve drinks and keep guests happy throughout the day. Over all it was a very pleasant experience. I decided to join Models Direct for the huge range of contacts and knowledge to get the right work for me. I would say to anyone working in the talent industry to keep following your dream and work hard and you will achieve your goals :-)

A LEG-UP IN THE INDUSTRY
I enjoyed the day's modelling assignment and got on really well with the photographer. I simply had to view some cars and pretend to sign some papers and such, and it was a fun way to earn a bit of money! I would recommend joining a talent agency like Models Direct as it gives you a leg-up in the industry, and gets you one step closer to great opportunities.

Had a fantastic assignment posing as a doctor with X-rays on an iPad, and running downstairs with a white coat on and a stethoscope in hand! The photographer David was brilliant and we got some really good shots. Would absolutely recommend to anyone thinking of joining a model agency, definitely give Models Direct a call!

THE BUZZ OF THE RUNWAY!
My Models Direct assignment was a fashion show for the launch party of a women's wear boutique. It was great fun and the clothes were beautiful. I would happily do it again and certainly recommend the experience to others. There is nothing quite like the buzz of loud music, quick changes, high heels and a runway.

MODEL FOR FASHION BOUTIQUE
Working for fashion boutique 'Girl In The Green Scarf' was an amazing experience. The catwalk was a thoroughly enjoyable experience. I was so excited before and during the show. Being able to wear the outfits that were provided was an honour as it was a very elegant range. I would love to be able to do this experience all over again. The designer was such a wonderful lady and went out of her way to make us feel comfortable and was always on hand to help us. In fact, all the staff on hand concentrated on making us feel as relaxed as possible and it was so much fun. I joined with Models Direct looking for a different experience and I definitely received this with this assignment, and I can only hope I get to do this some more in the future.

LIVE FASHION MODEL
As my first modelling assignment, I was a little apprehensive about what to expect and equally what would be expected of me. Once I arrived at Pure London however, I was welcomed very warmly, and was enthusiastically introduced to the designer's collection, with an interesting story to how the label came about and how the styles were developed. I was effectively a live model at the event, modelling various garments from the collection, both at the stall and around the venue. As the days progressed I also became more involved with talking to potential buyers, as my understanding of the brand improved. I definitely enjoyed being a part of the fashion trade that I've never been exposed to before, and the designer was both positive and friendly, so I felt very much at ease. I initially joined Models Direct because I had come back from living abroad and was unsure as to what I would do next. I saw it as an opportunity to experience something new and to try out something that many people had often said I should do.

PAID TO HAVE FUN!
My modelling assignment involved mingling with the public whilst being adorned with beautiful bespoke head pieces. I had a lovely day with the Snoxell hat design team; they were friendly and great fun to work with! Working with Snoxell at the Pure Olympia London event gave me the opportunity to smooch around on my break and look at all the latest designer trends and up and coming fashion crazes! I love being paid to have fun; I can't wait for my next assignment with Models Direct!

A DIFFERENT TYPE OF MODELLING
The day was fantastic; we had a very sunny day and it was a different type of modelling from what I do usually. I really enjoyed working with a new photographer and having a new experience working in a laboratory setting. The assignment involved posing as a scientist in a chemical factory. I would recommend modelling to anyone, but I think it's important to keep your e-portfolio updated as customers are always looking for fresh shots. I joined Models Direct to try some different types of modelling and already have dome something different!

MODELLING IN THE SUN
As this was my first assignment, I was both nervous and excited, also worried about whether I'd brought suitable outfits to wear. I was photographed in a holiday park with the other 2 models, doing various holiday activities for a brochure- relaxing with a drink, cycling, and walking hand in hand with my 'model' husband barefoot along the beach with a dog. The weather was glorious, and I was soon relaxing and enjoying the whole experience. The cameraman put us at our ease and the other 2 models, Herb and Marc, were very easy to get on with. I joined Models Direct as I wanted to try something completely different from my office job, having taken early retirement. I definitely want to do some more assignments, and it has given me more confidence. Thanks to Models Direct for the opportunity to try something new, meet interesting people and have fun.

LIFE AMBITION ACHIEVED
On the Models Direct assignment, the photographer was a really lovely guy. He was very easy to get on with and very professional. I was quite nervous beforehand; I'd done photo shoots before, but this was my first assignment so it made me a little nervous. It didn't take long for the nerves to disappear though and I enjoyed every moment of it and would definitely do it again. The assignment was in a room with a small stage in the centre and lots of cameras around, I was given poses to hold for the shots and 3 clothes changes. I joined Models Direct as modelling is something I have wanted to do for a very long time and love it. It has been one of my life long ambitions and I had to make it work, and this is how I've achieved it.

At the start of my Models Direct assignment I was quite nervous, but then again excited to try something new. I think that anyone could do modelling if they really wanted to and it's a great way to express yourself it also helps you move your body effectively. If I had the chance to do it again I definitely would without a doubt.

A FAN OF FASHION
The Models Direct job was good fun and I would like to do it again. It was interesting as the equipment was very modern and it involved lots of cameras rather than just one. The assignment involved standing in a variety of poses with two changes of clothes. I would recommend the experience to others because it was exciting to see how technology can be used. I joined up with Models Direct as I had done some modelling before casually and found it fun and interesting. I am also a fan of fashion and technology.

TALKED THROUGH EVERYTHING
When I first arrived at the Models Direct assignment I was pretty nervous, but the photographer was friendly and talked me through everything that had to be done and I soon relaxed and began enjoying myself.

MODELLING FOR ARCHITECTS
The assignment with Models Direct was to have photographs taken for a firm of architects so that when they submit virtual ideas for buildings to clients, they can put 'real' people into them. I therefore had to do various poses, from being on the phone, to pretending to type a letter, waiting in a queue, pointing at a white board that wasn't there etc. Apart from the location being out in the sticks, it was really professionally managed and was good fun. Obviously a bit weird having to pretend to be doing something I wasn't really actually doing for the camera, but I trained as an actor, so it wasn't a problem and actually quite a good laugh.

WALKING AROUND WITH A BIG SMILE
I had a brill day on the Models Direct shoot. I was very nervous, but once I got there I was greeted by a lovely photographer with a very warm welcome. He put me at ease (this was my 1st time). I must have done everything right as he didn't need to retake any shoots. I've gained a lot of confidence and I can't wait to do another shoot. I joined the agency because all my friends encouraged me to do it and I'm so glad I did as I had nothing to be worried or nervous about. Since doing my first modelling shoot I've been walking around with a big smile. If anyone is unsure please, please don't be, everyone is so very friendly and helpful and any problems they’re always there to help you out, just a phone call away.
