Another fantastic opportunity given me by Models Direct.  This time I worked for Love English Apples. I was slightly nervous at first as this was the first time I was filmed, instead of just posing for photographs.  As always, I would like to do it again and again. I love this kind of work! 

I had a few journey issues, but arrived at the farm safely. It was fun when I had to simulate that I cut my finger while being filmed saying a few words. I had to repeat myself a few times but we got it!

With every new assignment I feel more confident.  It is always very exciting as every job is different and I learn new skills and get new experiences.

I would recommend Models Direct to anybody wishing to get started in the industry. Thank you to the MD team for your support and finding me the new opportunities.

This was my second assignment with Models Direct, and again I really enjoyed the experience. The client was very welcoming and guided me through the poses they wanted. This shoot has given me further experience with working in the industry. The project also involved working with young children which was really fun and added a different dimension to the work.

Just wanted to say how much I enjoyed my car dealership shoot on Tuesday via Models Direct. It involved me being a salesman for the new showroom catalogue.  Lots of smiling was needed all day and it was such fun to do. I would recommend everyone to have a go at this, it can be a very enjoyable experience!

Recently had a fab time filming with Northshot Productions for an American internet advert. The fellow actors and crew were so friendly and we all got on well. The days filming was such fun. Thank you so much Models Direct for representing me and the support you provide. I would recommend Models Direct to anyone who is interested in this work :)

Everyone was very friendly and easy to work with, it made the day very enjoyable!


I had such a fun day doing this eyewear modelling shoot. Everyone was very friendly and easy to work with, it made the day very enjoyable. A small group of us were modelling a whole range of eyewear in various settings to be used for promotional material. For me I need to balance my availability with the style of shoot and this complimented really well. I look forward to shooting similar assignments!

Although a long day it was very enjoyable. The crew and other models were fun to work with and interesting to talk to. We were put into different scenarios including a train station and a hospital, and the lead photographer kept a good pace throughout the day. I would recommend modelling to anyone, it's great fun to do something different and to meet new people. I decided to join Models Direct not just for some extra money but because I'm quite outgoing and for me this was a very fun thing to do - a cracking day!

Great experience, the crew was friendly and patient.  I enjoyed the diversity of the shots, whereby I was acting as NHS consultant.  I have definitely learned some new skills, thanks Models Direct!  I would recommend this to everyone looking for fun and some extra cash.

It was a really interesting if slightly nervous experience filming for J.Walkers Productions. A great insight into all aspects of filming in front of and behind camera. I was allowed to be creative with my lines and also had a hand in suggestions for angles and locations.

The assignment involved a ten minute scripted two page dialogue between myself and the actor Bryan Lawrence (Soldier Soldier/London's Burning). 
It was a promotional video for a software company based in America  targeted at the Internet as opposed to mainstream TV.

I would highly recommend this to anyone thinking of doing it.
I signed up to Models Direct  because acting is an art that intrigues me and something I always wanted to be tested by as I have years of experience in front of large audiences as a big band lead vocalist.

A superb three hours! Thank you!

I arrived at the assignment for Resource Marketing, promoting an Assisted Living Complex in Devon, feeling a little apprehensive. However my apprehension was totally unfounded as the guys in charge of the campaign and shoot were extremely friendly and very professional.

Being in front of the camera is both exhilerating and exciting and I would encourage anyone who is thinking about making a move into the world of modelling to take that next step.

Directions were clear and concise which made the assignment easy and comfortable. Four models were hired for the day and we were required to re-create various scenarios that residents may find themselves in. Including, gardening, having fun in the activity area, dining, I.T. training, living within their own apartment,working out in the gym etc. etc.

I would fully recommend anyone to step forward and give it a go. It was fun, exciting, entertaining, educating and getting paid as well.

My advice to anyone going out on an assignment. Is to listen, listen and listen some more. This allows you to understand exactly what is required.

One last little tip, learn as much about the assignment in advance. So you are prepared with the right clothing and small props that you may need.

But more than anything else have fun. Because I did. Thanks Models Direct!

What a wonderful day! Doing modelling acting and having fun shooting for Resource Marketing . On the day Steve, another experienced model on set with me said Models Direct are really good and now I have positive feedback I can now look forward to more work with Models Direct.

The crew were very good and the makeup artist need congratulating on a great day as well as the other members of Models Direct.

Compliments due.

I joined Models Direct after I took semi-retirement and had a bit more spare time on my hands. I am a fairly confident person and love meeting new people. I wanted to do something completely different and it seemed like a fun and interesting thing to do. This was my first assignment and I was booked to pose as part of a couple using Airport Parking Facilities for a holiday company. The assignment took place near Aberdeen Airport and was over three days. I didn't quite know what to expect, but I needn't have worried as the crew were fantastic at putting me at ease and explaining exactly what they needed from me. I thoroughly enjoyed working with my partner and the crew and learned about the process of shooting an advert. I found the whole experience totally enjoyable and really exciting, and would certainly like to do more work like this in the future.

I think it has been a great move for me to join Models Direct as they have managed the whole booking process with professionalism. They have also been extremely encouraging and supportive.

Had a great afternoon with a group of people. Wasn't at all nervous as I was given a good amount of information beforehand so I could prepare and know what is needed before I even turn up.

Other people there were friendly, all happy to get involved and help out. This was a shoot for the Salisbury Group advertising material.

The photographer was brilliant, knew what he was doing and understood the models.

Always done work representing myself, but good to also have a agency on the side to get extra work and experience in.

This was my first assignment with Models Direct, I would recommend them and I look forward to many other jobs.

It was a really nice experience, it was relaxing and fun. I wasn't nervous at all.I would definitely do it again! The most enjoyable part of the assignment was that everything was rolling smooth and easy,no high pressure, only good vibes. The assignment involved shooting in several poses as a cleaning person for a company that provides this kind of services. I was instructed to be normal and not over act, because it would look fake. I learned how to pose and keep my stature so I can look good in pictures. If someone wanted to join the industry, I would recommend to join an agency like Models Direct because they can provide support, helpful tips and they put you in contact with possible employers. I decided to join up because of ambition and the extra income so I'm really looking forward to more work.

I felt great being the model of the day. I felt nervous initially as I didn't know what to expect, but on the other hand I was very excited about this opportunity. I had so much fun and could have spent more time there as I was genuinely enjoying my assignment when I was told my role was finished. I'll definitely do this again and can't wait, but I have to LOL!

My duties involved carrying out the step by step duties of a nurse on a daily basis.  First I had to prepare fluids which I was to administer to a patient, then we had the hand washing session, patient mobilization, reporting to the doctor on ward rounds.


I enjoyed working with the NHS team whom were very warm and friendly as well as communicating with my patients for the day.

I certainly gained more confidence as I was able to meet my personal expectation as well as what was required of me. I realized my acting skills had got a lot more better as it came naturally when I was told to communicate with patients. A fellow actor (patient) recommended I went for it as I came across so natural and she thought such talent should be shown to the world

I'll definitely recommend this experience to others as I have done already because its an opportunity to express your talent, network and also discover more about yourself as in my own case after this experience I intend to open doors for my acting skills/career.

I think its a good move to be under an umbrella of a talent agency and will definitely recommend Models Direct as I have been already even before securing my first job. I'm very active in pursuing work as I do this everyday. I update my portfolio regularly when I have a good photo as I understand it is my CV to securing more work for the future

I joined Models Direct when I realized I was bored of working 9-5 in an office. I thought there would be great opportunities to do more exciting things as a model/actor. Lots of hard work goes into it however due to the sporadic nature of being a model/actor where you could be here today and there tomorrow whilst meeting great personalities and different locations. I thought this was more for me.

Today I took part in a great assignment offered to me by Models Direct whereby I had to attend a location and model a new clothing range for the Textile Center of Excellence.

I was quite nervous at first but within the first 10 minutes of talking to the director and the 2x photographers I was put at ease.

The shoot lasted for 8hrs and I can honestly say I have gained a lot of professional tips and my confidence has grown also. The day was exciting and enjoyable throughout and everyone was very kind and professional. The photographers direction was excellent and they also were very thorough in getting the correct shot for the style of look they were after.

I would recommend this hobby/career to anyone that has the thought to pursue it.

Thanks Models Direct for my assignment and I look forward to more in the future.

This was my second film shoot through Models Direct and it was fantastic!  I got to be driven in an ambulance all day, being filmed in a 'Top Gear' style from a car with overtaking and flying around the countryside of Kent.  My part involved me being carried around for most of the day by two burly paramedics who strapped me into a carry chair.  I was filmed being carried up and down the stairs, in and out of the ambulance and also in and out of the main entrance to a Hospital, which caused a few heads to turn when we arrived with cameras etc.  I'm most probably on a few mobile phones too from the people watching us outside!

All in all an absolutely brilliant day, and so many laughs throughout the day!  Bring it on Models Direct, I want more of this paid fun!!

I had a lot of fun being a model for the Textile Center of Excellence.
I got to model an interesting selection of clothes, the most enjoyable part was getting to see some of the photos as we went along.
The assignment involved modelling different outfits by a few different designers and had some video clips taken of us too.

I wouldn't say I learned any new skills as I have done many shoots before so I knew what to expect beforehand.
I would recommend the experience to others, it is a lot of fun as you get to meet interesting people that you probably wouldn't meet otherwise. Everyone is so nice within the industry.

Joining an agency can be quite difficult as most will always find someway of putting you down which can put you off pursuing modelling as a career. I've been quite lucky  doing a lot of freelance work which has helped me to get work with a whole bunch of photographers.

Models Direct allowed me to get my foot in the door and they found me some work which no agency has managed for me as of yet.

This was my first assignment through Models Direct and I had a good time!  The client was welcoming and friendly, and the photographer guided me through all the requirements to ensure all criteria was met.  We spent several hours in different locations taking many photos which I really enjoyed.

Today I was lucky enough to participate in my first paid modelling job with Xavier Athletica.  Having had a few shoots before I didn't feel as nervous as I did the first time I had modelled. Nevertheless I was partially nervous yet excited at the same time. We shot in a variety of beautiful locations around West London where I was fortunate enough to wear the client's high quality clothing range. I posed for many casual shots such as drinking coffee as well as some running and cycling shots. I would thoroughly recommend the experience to others who are looking to get into modelling. It was great fun and I enjoyed every moment of it. My advice for those who would wish to break into the industry is to just be patient and when your opportunity comes around to grasp it with both hands and enjoy yourself. I am looking forward to updating my portfolio using the shots from today's work and cannot wait to see how they have turned out. 

My desire to gain experience in modelling was the main reason as to why I decided to join up with Models Direct. Having seen the success of existing clients, I spent no time making my decision to join them. I hope that this is that start of many experiences and that I enjoy them as much as I did today. Thank you Xavier Athletica and thank you Models Direct!

I wasn't nervous for my assignment  to begin with. When I got there I was introduced to the crew including the Director and others. It's something that I always wanted to do,  the really enjoyable part  was the way we were treated with respect, always making sure we had what we wanted.

The assignment involved  promoting  the new range of Steelcase  furniture in a modern office setting. I've learned lots of new skills being in this type of work  &  I would recommend it anyone who is interested in this industry especially if you like to be in front of a camera.
The only advice I can give is that when you get the opportunities,  make them it count!  Be friendly, ask when you don't understand and always smile!  That in its self, will make things very easy for you as well as being confidence in what you doing and showing your enthusiasm  and commitment.

I joined Models Direct after being  referred by someone who said  they would give me great opportunities. From what I have done and seen so far Models Direct is the best.
Thanks for making my dream come true!

It was a very enjoyable day and something very different than I have never done before.  I wasn't nervous at all because I had spoken to both Molly my contact at Models Direct and Chris from Hayes & Finch and they both were very nice and helpful and kept me at ease. I was modelling new robes and accessories for vicars and priests. I had to pose in some standard poses as well as some that looked more priest like.  It was a good laugh and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I joined Models Direct because they put you forward for lots of different jobs that you'd never even think of and look after you in any way possible such as getting travel costs added to the pay for the job.
