"I signed up to this company knowing that it would be a bit of a gamble and I might not get any work, but within 3 months I received my first job. I was modelling for a veterinary pharmaceutical company, taking on the role of a farmer and a vet

I did 1.5 days work and as it was on a farm it was a very early start. Charlie from models direct kept me informed right up to the day of the job, what was required, what I had to wear and what I would be doing. Communication was first class.

On the day of the shoot everything was well explained and I had a great time. The weather was good and it was fun working alongside animals even though they could be unpredictable at times!!! The crew were friendly and relaxed and I felt comfortable throughout. I even got a full breakfast and hot chocolate so can't complain!! Both days we finished early and the crew were happy with my work as was I.

Charlie checked in on both days which was a good touch. Overall I had a great experience and would highly recommend models direct as a company. They are professional, well run and the communication has been excellent."

Working with Models Direct was great for my first shoot. They were clear with what I needed to do and sent me all of the information I needed for the shoot and who I should contact if there was a problem.

I am looking forward to the next opportunity.

This was my first model shoot and wow, what a fantastic experience. Models Direct were very supportive with emails and phone calls, nothing was left out. The shoot at Anchor Care was a fantastic experience. The other models were supportive and friendly with lots of advice. The Anchor staff made us feel very welcome. There was food/snacks/drinks available all day. The photographers were very professional and I felt safe in their hands. Lots of videos and still shoots were taken.

Working with a major retail & supermarket was fantastic all thanks to Models Direct; I highly recommend professionals, newcomers, and part-timers to this agency as they do cater to all. Such an inclusive & flexible agency, you won’t be disappointed.

A little trepidatious accepting a job with a couple days notice.. however, in Gemma’s (MD agent) hands I always feel safe and looked after and as always she’s found me a great day gig.
Really lovely people to work with on the shoot, couldn’t ask for anything more :)

Thanks Models Direct and Gemma!

Great first Shoot
Had a fantastic experience, shooting with Fresh Student Accommodation - Market House in Newcastle. This was my first job after being with Models Direct for 3 years.

Every member of staff was very kind and very much approachable. Any issue was addressed immediately. The feeling of the shoot was very relaxed and very professional simultaneously and I couldn’t have asked for a better experience on my first shoot.

The marketing team had excellent vision for each shot, and the photographers were excellent. Would recommend!

Shay, Reference: QBMY-8966

Gemma helped me greatly with numerous phone calls and plenty of emails filled with information about the day and any concerns I may have had. Immediately this put my nerves at rest as I didn’t have to worry about what to wear or how to act.

During the actual photo shoot I was made to feel comfortable by Grace, Ash and Emma as well as the staff at the front desk. The girls explained that the relaxed natural look was the best way to go about things and give me direction through out the entire shoot. The girls made all the models feel comfortable and helped us gel making it easy to work together

Thank you to everyone involved for this great experience.

This was my first modelling experience and I have found it very easy and fun. The team were very professional and lovely to talk to, and my fellows models were very nice also.

Thanks Models Direct.


Alex, Reference: HSMZ-7343

I signed up Models Direct for a laugh and never realised I’d actually get a job modelling. I had my first job as a model for Business Disability Forum. Being a wheelchair user I felt really nervous as I had no experience within this industry.

Lexy made me feel welcome from the moment I got to the shoot explaining what will happen throughout the day. The shoot felt very relaxed and couldn’t ask for a better first experience.

I look forward to my next job!

Loreen, Reference: BZXC-9764

My first paid photoshoot was a fantastic experience: a worthy cause, working with brilliant and personable professionals and gaining valuable tips and insight into the workings of the industry. The half day shoot passed extremely quickly in the presence of such interesting people.

The professionalism was amazing! Made us feel so calm welcomed and looked after. We were well fed and made a new Instagram friends too :)

Also, Charlie from Models direct kept me informed throughout, an email beforehand then a follow up call. This truly was impressive unlike other agencies I have worked with.

I am inspired and motivated to continue to represent the MD family!

Was such a fun shoot and can only thank the crew, Models Direct, and co-model for making it such a fun shoot. In all my years (10+) professionally modelling, this was by far the most fun shoot I’ve been on.

Torr, Reference: MHKH-8379

My first photoshoot with Models Direct to promote the accommodation and facilities. We did some shooting in the living room, kitchen and bedroom. It was fun working with the brilliant knowledgeable photographer and the team were fun to work with, alongside 3 other models. I had a lovely time and it was an amazing experience.
I look forward to working on many more upcoming projects.
