Before I started the Penhaligon's assignment I was excited, yet slightly nervous as it involved talking to random people on the streets and dressing up as a paper boy handing out newspapers to promote the company celebrating 146 years of perfume making. When I arrived my nerves vanished almost immediately, I was met by the staff who made me feel at ease. I was slightly shy at first when talking to people but as the days went on I felt that my confidence was growing, which was one of the main reasons I wanted to do the assignment.
I would like to thank everyone at Penhaligon's and of course Talent Management for booking me on this assignment. I will hopefully be hearing from you soon with another modelling or promotional opportunities, Thank you!

"Extra extra... Read all about it!!"

I first felt nervous on the way to my assignment for Penhaligons, but on arrival I received a warm welcome and felt at ease straight away. I enjoyed promoting for the company and  interacting with potential customers. I would definitely promote again.
The most enjoyable part was managing to successfully get customers into the shop and see that they bought a product.
The assignment involved handing out promotional material and directing potential customers to the store. The assignment was based on a paper boy theme and involved wearing a costume. I feel  I  gained a fair amount of experience  in the promotional environment. Thank you Talent Management.

" It pushed me to go out of my comfort zone which I really enjoy"

 

This was my first assignment from Talent Management so I was a little bit nervous especially with having to travel up to London but when I arrived at the location everyone was really lovely and  welcomed me with a smile.
the Job was for Penhaligon's Store on Regent Street. We were asked to dress up as  paper boys which I thought was a really unique and interesting way to advertise their brand.
This was not only a great hit with the public but such a good experience for myself, it boosted my confidence with the general public and also pushed me to go out of my comfort zone which I really enjoy as I believe it's really  important to give all new opportunities a go. I would highly recommend Talent Management to anyone who wants to get into the modelling industry as they are really friendly and informative which so important as this line of work as it can be quite nerve racking but they supported me through every step of the assignment, I've always wanted to try my hand at modelling and I cant thank Talent Management enough for giving me the chance to do so .

I really enjoyed the filming for Housing and Care 21 today. The director and the crew were very friendly and helpful. We all had featured parts and the director was happy with our performances. The location was easy to find and we had a great lunch. My co star actors were great too, we all got on well. I look forward to my next job with Talent Management.

A very straight forward assignment but a learning experience all the same. Thanks Talent Management!

As this was my second assignment with Talent Management I felt more relaxed and confident. The photographers are so skilled and in control that they basically make it all seem quite easy.

Shooting for for Westminster Recliners, I had to sit on a reclining chair, a settee and lie on a bed. Not too strenuous then!

I feel I am improving and found the day enjoyable as everyone at the shoot was nice and friendly. Anyone tempted to try modelling should definitely give it a go as it really is good fun.

I had such a fun time doing the promotional modelling job for Penhaligon's Perfumers in London, I wouldn't hesitate to do it again if the opportunity came up. I was nervous at first but knowing my lines and being ready for the job helped with my confidence.
I was asked to stand outside the store in an 1820's paper boy outfit , approach people as they walked passed and  tell them more about  Penhaligon's and the products. The most exiting part was speaking to all sorts of people and hearing what they thought of it all as well as being complimented on the outfit.
 I would recommend other models and aspiring actors to do promotional work, it's a great environment, interacting with people  will help increase your confidence for future jobs.
My advice to anyone wanting to do this sort of work is always have a good attitude no matter the situation, be chatty, confident, positive, and it will be an experience you'll never forget.
I decided to join Talent Management because I had read lots of good stuff from them and they always keep you up to date with everything. It's my ambition to become a model and actor,  and Talent Management are helping me make my dreams come true!!!

I thoroughly enjoyed my photo shoot for DWP today.  It was well managed and the whole team looked after my needs and directed the shoot very well. I joined Talent Management to add another income stream to my pension. If all assignments are as good as today, I will be pleased to keep on receiving them - please!  Norman

Working for Penhaligon's was a new and exciting opportunity which I thoroughly enjoyed. Being from Edinburgh originally I must have walked past the store a hundred times and always wondered what the brand was all about. The assignment involved dressing in 1870's attire in the character of a paperboy to hand out the 'Penhaligon Times' and get people into the store to try samples. It's safe to say the experience was well outside my comfort zone and whilst it was a cold weekend I had a great time chatting to people and seeing people smile when they saw me handing out the papers in a cockney accent. I would recommend this experience to everyone and also say that Talent Management are a fantastic agency to source promotional work from!

Penhaligon's London was the client for this promotional assignment and the pay was excellent! We were asked to interact with passers by and hand out the store's newspaper, the public were very responsive to our 1920's paperboy costumes and the energy outside of the shop was fantastic. I also made a fantastic friend with the other Talent Management model working with me. I highly recommend Talent Management to everyone. Marie on the booking team was there for me and my teammate every step of the way! Can't praise the agency any more!

This was my first major video shoot where I was playing 'Jalil' - one of the main roles in the production for Public Health England. The crew were so supportive, especially Alex (director) and Bea (producer).

The atmosphere was pretty chilled, as you would expect in around Shoreditch High Street.

Taking this job has given me a priceless experience and confident boost! It's not like me to take these types of assignments but I had a "why not?!" moment and took the job.

I cannot forget Molly Robinson (Managing Agent at Talent Management) who offered me this booking; thank you very much!

Working for Penhaligon's is amazing. I have been employed through Talent Management as a working actor and model dressed in 1870 attire. It consists of us standing out in the street handing out newspapers and interacting with the public. "Read all about it" being performed in a cockney accent remaining in character for 6 hours really put me out of my comfort zone and has helped me develop new levels of confidence as an aspiring professional actor. I would recommend this experience to all my friends and Talent Management are a fantastic agency to source promotional work. I look forward to future jobs! And am loving the current campaign!

I decided to join Talent Management  because I heard  very good things about the company from friends who had previously signed up . I wanted to get started with  modelling and now I know, this was the right place to start.

This was my first promotional modelling job, at first I was nervous  as  I didn't really know how to come across approaching  people.
However after my first day I got used to the whole concept and loved it! I loved interacting with customers, getting to know people and having so much fun in the process made it even better!! I've met some great people and made friends with the other Talent Management models, I'm really looking forward to doing it all again!

The assignment involved getting into an old school paperboy character, wearing the outfit,  talking to the public about Penhaligon's Perfumers, making them aware of the fragrance/ brand as well as asking them to come in and try the fragrances on offer. The most enjoyable part of the assignment was making people smile/ laugh and seeing people's day improve by simply saying hello or smiling at them whilst in character.

I feel taking part in this promotion, I've really gained a lot more confidence talking to people and  getting involved with the general public. I would definitely recommend this type of work to others, it really does widen your experiences and gives you knowledge on how to approach people and  and  get them involved with a brand.

My advice to anyone wanting  to pursue modelling would be, go for it!
Its great to have this sort of work experience under your belt and doing things out of your comfort zone will give you an amazing adrenaline  rush.

Words can't really describe the feeling you get when the camera is on you, it makes you feel really good inside and makes you appreciate your life a little bit more. Modelling is such a great thrill and experience, if you have the chance to do it then go for it  because you will regret it if you don't.

I enjoyed myself during yesterday's photoshoot for Department for Work and Pensions.  A female model and I were required to play an aspirational couple in their home - looking at the laptop in the kitchen and lounge to find a good pension scheme.

The client made us feel very relaxed, and I therefore gained confidence throughout the day.

I would recommend this experience to others in order to explain how important the scheme is.

If you want to be a model, I would definitely advise finding yourself an agent. l am not really proactive in pursuing modelling work because this is only part-time for me. 

Out of the 3 agencies l applied to, Talent Management was the one that replied to me on time. Highly recommended!

We had a shoot with Mattressman on 17th Dec 15.  We arrived at the studio not entirely sure what the format of the morning was, but everything quickly became clear.  We were warmly invited, briefed and got into bed!  Overall a fun shoot to do.  It involved several different themed shots in a bedroom set.  Ideas of shots were already in mind and we were directed in that sense.  It was very easy and comfortable working with the photographers and end client.  Thanks Talent Management!

I was booked by Talent Management for a shoot for a hair product down in Bournemouth which went very well. I was filmed applying the product to my hair from different perspectives. The shoot only lasted a couple of hours but was enjoyable, the PR and production team were very pleasant which created a comfortable vibe on set.

It was exciting beforehand although I was a little nervous as hadn't be photographed in this type of setting.

I was asked to pose for photographs with a wheelchair user and another model as though we were on a day out walking around a couple of lakes, promoting fun and enjoyment for wheelchair users through the company Invacare. We were asked to smile and look like we were telling funny stories or making jokes and end up at a bar.  It was a lot of fun and I would be happy to do it again. I enjoyed just acting as though I was on a day out so feeling the photographs were natural. I felt like I learned to relax a little more when being photographed.

I would recommend the experience to others as it was fun and you can learn things about yourself to improve your modelling.

I joined Talent Management just to fulfill an ambition as some friends has suggested I should try modelling.  My advice to those looking to break into the industry is to never give up and remember that some of your photographs in your e-portfolio might not suit certain clients, but will be very appropriate for others.

It was good to be chosen for an assignment again by Talent Management, even better knowing I was the only one chosen!  Everyone at Wahl UK was nice and welcoming, and I was only required for the hair demonstration for a little while. I would highly recommend this agency for anyone starting off - definitely give it a go, it will be worth it!

Overall I was pretty calm all  because I had done similar things before but I would love to do it again, so thank you Talent Management!

This photo shoot was for Transport For London, we were asked to act natural and just let the photographer take pictures, the most enjoyable part was definitely meeting the other models
I would love to get more assignments like this as it is a great way to build confidence and your portfolio

My latest assignment  from Talent Management  involved  three video shoots for International Workplace, demonstrating  CPR / AED and the recovery position for an e-learing video. The assignment was enjoyable and Mark/Tanya and Gary were very helpful and we all had a laugh. Although I have not been as proactive promoting myself as much as I could  due to lack of time, I do always enjoy my time on assignment.

This was my first assignment for Talent Management. I joined these guys to gain some confidence and also earn a little extra money.  I was a bit nervous at first, but the crew on the shoot were so professional and made me feel very relaxed.  They told me exactly what to do and how to stand, look and act. I was required by a healthcare company to pose as a bicycle technician to show people that although I look as though I am going about day to day tasks happily, I also suffer from psychological issues that you can't necessarily see. I would definitely recommend joining Talent Management - they are friendly, organised and professional.

The overall experience  was great! I went there a little nervous but once  I met everyone,  it went smoothly and  felt like I knew the other models for years.
The job was a Transport For London photo shoot, it involved myself and other models acting like a group of friends on night out in different locations around Oxford Circus. The most exciting part of the day was probably getting through the awkward stage of getting to know everyone.

I decided to get into modelling with Talent Management as a lot of people were telling me to try it, so that's what I did!
I would 100% recommend the experience to others as you meet great individuals from all over. My advice to someone trying to pursue something like this is:  Do not over think it, listen to direction and be your-self.
