All About Commercial Modelling: Welcome to a New Adventure

Our long-standing modelling agency is on the hunt for commercial models. Models Direct have 30 years of experience under our belt and as each year passes, we're adapting how we run as a business, connecting our models and clients. We love thinking out-of-the-box and have been going strong in our industry since 1990.

What's a commercial model, we hear you ask? Well, to summarise, a commercial model can be any age, size, height or ethnicity because they're needed for a variety of projects. There aren't any restrictions which makes it a perfect new adventure to kick-start a career in. A perfect go-to for those who want to be a slashie or go ahead with a more bustling career. 

This means that we're reaching out for real-life models to come forward who’ll be a true representation of the population. Models Direct are all about breaking stereotypes. We're open and welcome diversity – be it promoting age diversity (calling all you silver foxes out there) or our plus-size movement where every body shape is unique and deserves being celebrated (so a big no to body shaming). 

The Lowdown on Commercial Modelling 

Commercial models can do everything that isn't generally associated with high fashion – no need to worry about strutting down the catwalk like a boss, you'll be showing it how it’s done on camera. 

The work includes showcasing ads for products and services - such as food, travel, housewares, and tech and so much more. Appealing to the general public is the aim as real-life people help to connect with a product effectively.

The arena for advertising is so vast that you’re able to tap into a plethora of industries and extend your career further. If a client is looking for your individual look, then perfect. We'll connect you both and get the ball rolling for assignments and projects, it’s as simple as that.

Excellent studio facilities with a rather trendy style in the heart of the city. Great and warm, friendly staff from the moment I walked into the studio. Loved the large professional photo studio complex, which has some of the best equipment and lighting which produced the perfect shoots!! Amazing!!! The food and setting of the restaurant next to the canal was beautiful! Great thanks to Molly for the last minute gig!!!

Do you have what it takes? We reckon so!

Let’s go through the most important qualities a commercial model should have:

  • Ooze confidence – showcase yours with a smile and shine!
  • Self-belief – connect with positive thinking and affirmations. You’re able to do whatever you put your mind to. 
  • Willingness – immerse yourself into the new experience and give it a go by trying something new. That’s what life’s about. New experiences, new journeys, new adventures.
