Alife and his owner Carly both had great fun when they attended a shoot for Eureka magazine...
"Alfie's assignment went well... The photographer said he got some really good pictures and overall I was impressed by the friendly approach and efficiency of the team."
Alfie, a Dogue de Bordeaux from Essex, got his big modelling break when he was selected for a London photoshoot to provide editorial images for Eureka, the magazine dedicated to engineering design.
The client specified that they needed a friendly mid-sized dog, and looked at a number of candidates before selecting the perfect pooch for the job. Dogues de Bordeaux are generally good-tempered and devoted dogs, and friendly Alfie was a clear favourite.
Alfie's owner, Carly, was obviously thrilled when she found out that he had been selected. We spoke to her soon after the shoot and found out that they both had a brilliant time.
"Alfie's assignment went well - quickly and smoothly," she told us. "At the studio Alfie sat in the back of the car whilst a model petted him. He behaved fine after his initial excitement and all went well. The photographer said he got some really good pictures and overall I was impressed by the friendly approach and efficiency of the team."
Animals bring a touch of humour and interest to any editorial feature, which is why magazine editors and other media professionals use pet models to liven up their shoots. Advertising is another area where pet models can shine - just think of all the animals you see in TV adverts. If you think your furry friend could do the job, get in touch with us at Models Direct. We represent a huge range of pets for all types of modelling assignments and we'd be delighted to hear from you.
