Three first-time models, one famous brand trusted by millions.
If ever there was an assignment that worked at both ends of the expertise spectrum, this was it.
BMW put a call out asking for three models to cover two days’ worth of shooting for a press release highlighting the virtues of their new Active Tourer model. Step up Massi, Steve and Chrissie (well, as we’ll see later, it was actually the opposite of a “step up” for Chrissie!)
Though our models were debutantes, they were thrilled with this prestigious launch and were soon in top gear when it came to the nitty-gritty. BMW needs no introduction – even to none “petrol heads”, and they’ve been at the pinnacle of automotive engineering since its concept in Bavaria in 1910. As one of the most recognised brands anywhere in the world, BMW has the funds required to access the very best marketing tools – and contacting us was obviously the natural plan to help them with their press release.
Commercial models are always needed for a variety of advertising jobs, whether it’s for printed material, photography or digital media. BMW is just one of hundreds of top-class clients we have on our books, so models signing up with us can be sure they’ll get the best chance to star in prominent modelling assignments throughout the UK and beyond.
Massi and Steve got off to a roaring start on Day One of the press release shoot for “The Ultimate Driving Machine”. As predicted, the shoot went swimmingly well, and the two models can’t wait to be put forward for more work. As Massi said, “This was my first experience as a model. I had the best experience – everything was perfect, except for the weather! Charlie was very helpful and I’m looking forward to my next assignment. Thank you Models Direct!”
Steve was equally buoyant. “I really enjoyed my first assignment. I had lots of fun and it was very straightforward. Charlie was very friendly and helpful – it was a pleasure dealing with her. I appreciate being chose for the shoot and look forward to the next assignment (hopefully!)”
We’ll do our best, Steve!
Chrissie was chosen to star on the second days’ shoot, and it was a day she won’t forget in a hurry! Our heroic model was tasked with a daring shoot, appearing to learn to skydive at the Hinton Skydiving Centre in Northants, just a short drive from the famous Silverstone racing circuit. We’re not sure if Chrissie suffers from vertigo, but if she does, it would’ve been irrelevant as she didn’t need to leap from a plane. Whew!
A radiant Chrissie shared her feedback with us: “Thank you Models Direct for making my dream come true! This was my first assignment as a model and I had the best time ever! The experience was amazing and so was the weather [sounded like the sun came out on the second day!]. Charlie is just the most supportive and helpful person. Thank you also to Chris and Barry… the shoot was so relaxed and I think it went well. I’m excited to see the actual press release and looking forward to the next assignment.”
Our booking team really can make dreams come true! Who would have thought Chrissie’s first modelling job would be working for BMW? Certainly she didn’t!
