"Molly from Models Direct was very friendly and passionate about the project. She found some good options for us very quickly! The shoot went smoothly and as expected. Michael, the model, was very polite and patient. He did a good job and followed instructions perfectly. It was a pain-free and quick process." Marina, Fuzzy Duck Creative.

Darren was one such model – he recently accepted an assignment with us for a photo shoot in the luxurious Plaza Premium Lounge at Edinburgh Airport.

This is what he told us afterwards about his experience:

“It was an awesome photoshoot from start to finish,” he said.
