Modelling has so many categories that it's really interesting to want to know more about it especially if you’re looking to dive into something out-of-the-box and fun. It’s much more than just being a runway model or being on a billboard. Models Direct specialise in many sections of modelling and family modelling is one of them. Are you part of a family that would like to feature in company's marketing or advertising campaign? Yes? Great! Keep reading as we shine the spotlight on family modelling.
Families are wonderful and no matter what your dynamics are, the people who are most precious in your life are what makes everything that much more meaningful. They're family. Over the past few months, we’ve all had a real bumpy ride. It’s been an unpredictable rollercoaster, full of ups and downs but one thing that we can draw positive energy from is the people who've made our time in isolation smoother and more bearable. Now you’re probably wondering how this ties in with modelling. Well, it’s quite easy. Whilst you’ve been in isolation, perhaps with your family or maybe without, you’ve probably been thinking and planning about all the previously unfulfilled tasks you’ve always wanted to do once life restarts.
Maybe modelling has been on your bucket list and you don't know how to go about getting exposure and signing up to a reputable agency. Maybe you’ve been nervous and procrastinating about leaping into unknown territory. But honestly, the time couldn't be better than it is now. The great thing about family modelling is, is that you’re not on your own in front of a camera or crowd. You’re in it together and with your family's support, good spirits and enthusiasm, modelling could be the perfect career that will have you all on board helping you launch new opportunities and make memories.
So, get your camera rolling. Take snaps of your family doing real-life activities – watching Netflix, cooking, making a cuppa, gardening, cleaning chores, driving, eating, exercising... the list is pretty endless. Natural shots of everyday activities are great to build your portfolio. Clients want to see these types of snaps, not forced and unnatural poses and certainly not a million selfies either (you can leave the selfies to Instagram). You want to showcase your dynamics as a family, your individual characters and collectively how you all work harmoniously together given your similarities and differences. You can take inspo from our other blog on family matching outfits which would work well in your portfolio.
If you’re looking to apply, fill in our simple online application form and add some family shots. We'll take it from there and get in touch with you once a client calls for your look. We have a strong modelling platform where lots of families have reviewed our service and have stayed on to being a part of our family. We’re a collaborative and supportive bunch of modelling experts who live and breathe everything to do with modelling. It really is in our blood.
