Smart, Diverse Modelling – With Hive

Published: 20th May 2021

Hive is one of the biggest names in the home connectivity business and Models Direct is thrilled to name it among its many well-known clients.

Not only that, but our agency is also proud of its long and strong record in promoting models of diversity. We firmly believe that anyone has the right to put themselves in front of a camera if they are eager to succeed and keen to reflect the world as it really is, in all its glorious variety.

As such, we suggested Clare for an online campaign with Hive and were just as pleased as she was to learn she had been selected for the booking.

Clare, who has dystonia, a condition affecting the muscles, uses a wheelchair and crutches to help her get about, and she was perfect for the shoot.

This is what she had to say afterwards:

“I had to try on some different outfits to play wheelchair tennis. When they chose the outfit that they liked the best, I then had to do action shots with a tennis racquet as if I was leaving my house. Everyone from the wardrobe stylist, photographer and producer was amazing and put me at ease. They also arranged for a taxi to take me home.”

Unlike some other companies and individuals that promote themselves online as agencies, Models Direct is a genuine, fully regulated modelling agency, with a history of more than 30 years in the business.

We know how important it is that all our models, including those with disabilities, trust us to put their safety and well-being first – at all times.

We promote our disabled models for the same jobs as other models, as well as putting them forward for commercial modelling assignments specifically requesting someone with a disability.

And we love to hear from disabled people of all ages and backgrounds.

This is what Clare said about working with us and our clients:

“Everyone was so friendly and reassured me as I was slightly nervous with it being my first assignment. They were all very helpful and accommodating towards my disability. I can honestly say that I really enjoyed my first shoot and I look forward to more in the future! Thank you so much Models Direct for all of your help in getting me my first assignment, keeping in touch regularly and giving me all the information I needed for the assignment!”
