First, the good news. Are you too old to become a model? The answer is a clear-cut “no”, as you can never be too old. Mature models are just as important to our clients as any other types of models, and with the range of assignments on offer we’re one of the most respected agencies in the country for mature models. Whether you are already working or enjoying a deserved retirement, you could be one of our next mature models working part-time in a fun environment - and, of course, you’ll be paid for it!
We’re totally unprejudiced about age, although we class our mature models as being over the age of 40. You may be thinking about “what ifs?” or “could I really be a model?” Maybe you’ve received a few compliments about your looks, or have the confidence to dive headfirst into unchartered territories. You could wake up one day with a resolution to try something new. It’s this self-belief and energy that we’re looking for in our mature models. And the second bit of good news: there really is no better time to realise your potential and fulfil your ambitions. All it takes is the drive to succeed and a little bit of help from our wonderful model co-ordinators!
If there was ever proof that the more mature amongst you can be in the spotlight, take a leaf out of Judi Dench’s book. This year the legendary English actor became the oldest person to appear on the front cover of the British Vogue…at the magnificent age of 85. The daughter of the ex-M in the James Bond films was quoted talking about her mother: “This age thing, I think, affects very much how she feels about herself and this gave her just that little boost of confidence to make her go, ‘Oh, maybe I’m still okay.’ Then, of course, after the photo shoot, she came back literally thinking she was Beyoncé!”
We work with hundreds of clients, and the types of jobs can be for TV adverts, traditional advertising, film promotions and fashion modelling. As an agency that thrives on knowledge of the industry and genuine feedback from our dedicated models, we like to showcase our model’s views upon completion of a job. Take Elizabeth, who finished her first assignment recently. She was itching to relay her photo shoot experience, and was full of praise for Models Direct. “What a great experience,” she beamed. “An all expenses paid trip to the South of France - mostly Dolce & Gabbana with the odd high street number thrown in. Charlie at Models Direct couldn’t have been more helpful – checking every step of the way that I was happy and being well looked after. I have some great pictures and can’t wait to do some more work like this. Thanks Models Direct.”
A stalwart of the modelling world, 83-year-old Herb says you have nothing to lose and is still enjoying his work. “I have been working with Models Direct for over four years,” he says, “and each assignment has proved to be a really enjoyable experience. Just try it and find out for yourself!”
