Models Direct Reviews

Thinking about modelling and wondering what it’s like to work as a model with us? Wondering what feedback we get from models who are registered? Take a moment to read some of our feedback below.

We started in 1990 and Models Direct continues to place models and talent for paid modelling work both in the UK and internationally. We have a full time team of staff here to help all our models and clients.

Representing men, women, teens, children, babies and star pets, our model agency receives requests daily for nonprofessional and professional models to appear for advertising, photographic, TV, film and promotional work.

We love receiving feedback from our models and talent who have been out to work with us, its great to hear how they got on with their bookings and here are just a few comments from models that we represent who have started earning a useful extra income with us.

Many models have had multiple assignments with Models Direct and for some it's their first opportunity with the modelling agency.

Modelling is a very competitive industry and models who are selected by our clients for work are thrilled to be called and booked. Don’t forget we pay all our models within 5 working days of the completed booking. Some assignments are low budget and others have very a high profile with fees to match!

So read on for more information from our happy customers and how they got on when they went out on a job for us!

Lucy, Reference: CE761568, Model fee: £200.00

Yesterday, I completed my fourth job through Models Direct Agency. The assignment was for a video
games console commercial. I had the lead role which involved me wearing a pair of virtual reality glasses and pretending to react to my surroundings. There was a green screen behind me so special effects can be added during post production. One of the scenes included me acting as if I had stepped out onto a mountain and was gasping at the view! A wind machine was used to blow my hair around to help enhance the scene but it was my job to create the realism through my expression! It was fun day working with a lovely film crew - I cannot wait to see the finished commercial!

Sarah for Holly, Model fee: £200.00

"Holly had a lovely afternoon at her assignment with Jems. The job consisted of a photo shoot for photos to be used on the client’s new website and perhaps in the future for a brochure. Jems is a company which produces hand made Scottish clothes predominantly in tartans and tweeds, much of which would be worn as wedding attire. The client required very little in the way of poses, smiles and activity during the shoot, so I feel that it was a good starting point for Holly to gain some experience in front of the camera and build her confidence. I felt that the client was pleased with the results of the shoot and with Holly’s performance, she was particularly pleased with her complexion as it carried the bright tartan off well. Overall we had an enjoyable afternoon and learnt lots!"

Atif, Reference: 1514, Model fee: £200.00

A big "Thank You" to Models Direct for organising my shoot with the NHS.  Everyone was very friendly and helpful and the assignment was fun to work on - I really enjoyed it!  This was my second assignment via Models Direct and I look forward to working on further assignments with them.  Keep up the good work!

Anuko, Reference: 1326, Model fee: £200.00

Myself and my Siberian Husky were booked to be involved in a Lapland UK Christmas event.  The day consisted of myself dressing up and playing the role of a "Husky Herder" whilst Anuko could be himself and greet the kids. It was an enjoyable day and a good experience to have, surrounded by beautiful scenery and really lovely folk to talk to whilst doing the shift.  Anuko loved the attention and was completely exhausted on the journey home. I learned that in order to further my dogs career in modelling, I had to have confidence in myself and that day gave me a huge confidence boost which I will continue to work on. I was apprehensive beforehand; having a pet doing such activities can be scary. One small moment and the whole thing could be ruined. However whenever Anuko was uncomfortable he backed away from the situation and whimpered to me to fix things, so I've also learned how to read if my dog is comfortable during jobs as well. We signed up and within 48 hours Anuko landed this role!  I look forward to our future jobs with this agency and would recommend it to anybody hoping to involve themselves in this type of career/hobby. I am really happy with this experience.
