This was my second time hostessing for the National Sporting Club at Twickenham rugby ground, so I wasn't as nervous this time, as I knew what to expect. My assignment was to meet and socialise with guests, keeping them happy. The assignment was fun as I met some lovely people and I got to dress up glamorously. Thank you to Models Direct for enabling me to get the job, I would definitely recommend them. Getting work in the talent industry can be hard, but you should follow your dreams.Apply: Female modelling
TRYING NEW THINGS
I was very nervous for my assignment at the Twickenham rugby club as a hostess. But I had a lot of fun and I would definitely do it again. The reason I joined with Models Direct was because I wanted to try something new and gain some new experiences. On the job I gained confidence by speaking to many different people and would recommend other girls try hostess work because it is a great experience. The most enjoyable part of the assignment was meeting the other girls and meeting and socialising with the catering staff as well. My advice to anyone getting into modelling or hostess work is to not be nervous and have fun.
LOOKING FORWARD TO THE NEXT
I didn't know what to expect when I went for my Models Direct assignment for The National Sporting Club, but when I met all the people I was working with I understood what I was doing for the day. I had to welcome all the clients, take their coats and take orders for drinks. Looking forward meeting all the other models I worked with again on the next assignment later this month.
I found the Models Direct assignment at the Twickenham Rugby Club very interesting and a different but good experience, as it was something I had not done before. I also found it a bonus as I do enjoy the game of rugby. The other models were very helpful and friendly.
This Models Direct assignment was the second time I have worked at the Twickenham Rugby Club, so I wasn't too nervous because I knew what to expect. I very much enjoyed it; it was very fun meeting the clients, making conversation and would love to do it again. The most enjoyable part was meeting the clients, talking to them and just having fun. On this assignment I learnt team working skills, as we had to work in a group of 8 models.
I would absolutely recommend modelling, meeting and greeting clients is pleasant as most of them are really funny and make you laugh. It's a very good idea to join Models Direct because you get many clients who view your profile and then might book you to be a model; it’s a stepping stone and sets it off. I joined Models Direct because I was particularly interested in doing modelling work and read the feedback Model's Direct had and everyone had positive comments so I decided to join.
The hosting job with Models Direct was such a new experience for me. From the beginning, navigating the guests to their seats made me anxious and quite nervous, although I managed to get the hang of it. This is the same for serving the drinks. I still made sure to smile all of the time. I believe the occasion has given me even more confidence. This is because I am not used to crowded places. I really hope I can become better next time. In my opinion, modelling is a great and glamorous job to have; I feel it suits me. Thank you very much for this opportunity.Apply: Female modelling
I loved being an extra in an ad very much. It was a good experiment; a glimpse to another world. I liked the feeling of pretending to be someone else. I was very pleased with my model booking agent, who took very good care of me. I would recommend modelling to anyone and I hope I can get more assignments in the future. The reason I have joined with Models Direct is because I am an aspiring singer and think this agency is a great help in achieving my goal; to live and work as a singer. Thanks Models Direct.
THANKS MODELS DIRECT!
My modelling assignment involved being a hostess at Twickenham Rugby club. As part of the role I socialised with guests and assisted other members of staff in keeping the guests happy. The job was fun as I enjoy meeting new people. Dressing up glamorous was part of the fun too. I would definitely do the job again. Thanks to Models Direct for helping me get the job.
The modelling experience with Talent Management on the whole was both pleasant and enjoyable. The assignment required us to greet and entertain guests, escort them to their tables and ensure that they had everything they needed for the day. I found the hours fairly long but we were given a two hour break to compensate. I would recommend this assignment to others and look forward to hopefully working with the client in future.
A MODEL FOR THE DAY
Being a model with Models Direct for the day felt very good, much better than my day job! I felt nervous because I wanted to do a good job. I had a lot of fun on the day and I enjoyed making others laugh! I would love to do it again. The most enjoyable part was the feeling of being a full time model for the day! The assignment involved me dressing as a nurse for photos for an NHS brochure; I had to walk with other models and real doctors whilst photos were being taken. My confidence grew the more photos I had taken on the day. I do recommend others to try this out, it’s a lot of people’s dream to be model even if it’s just for a day! I’ve always wanted to do modelling work as people tell me I have a good face and body for it. I have enjoyed it for the experience.
As this Models Direct assignment was my second time hosting at the Twickenham rugby stadium, my nerves were rather steady. I had a great time and loved meeting up with the other models again! The most enjoyable part had to be interacting with all different people and just generally having a good time. The assignment involved serving drinks and talking with the clients, which was great fun! As a hostess I received many compliments, which made me walk away with a smile on my face, I LOVED IT! I would recommend joining a modelling agency 100% as it was a great way of making money, doing things that you enjoy, being around friendly people and making/ meeting new friends. I would definitely say join an agency like Models Direct, as they help out as much as possible!Apply: Female modelling
GROWING IN CONFIDENCE
I had a great experience being a model for the day, it was fun. The most enjoyable part of the assignment, which involved promoting the diverse roles of NHS staff, was meeting others members of the Talent Management agency. Through this job, I believe I have developed my acting skills, and the experience has definitely given me more confidence. To succeed in this industry patience is the key.
PLAYING DOCTORS & NURSES
My modelling assignment with Models Direct was to be photographed for a recruitment campaign for the NHS. I had the role of being a doctor and there were 5 other models dressed as other medical staff, and photos were taken of us walking around the hospital. We were asked to look like we were happy in our jobs and to look professional. The photographers and everyone involved were friendly and helpful. I was a little nervous as this was my first assignment and I didn't know what to expect but I quickly felt very comfortable and really enjoyed the experience and would be very happy to do it again.
This was my first experience of modelling, and, although I was a little nervous at first, I was soon put at ease by the other, more experienced models, and the film crew, who were very professional. I decided to join Models Direct agency, not just to boost my income, but to broaden my horizons - and it was fun! I actually enjoyed doing the shoot, which was filmed with me in a Comformatic bed, both sat upright and led down 'asleep'. The bed was actually so comfortable I could have easily fallen asleep! I now have the confidence to pursue this line of work and update my portfolio, which I have neglected to do to date, therefore I haven't really promoted myself. This will now change as I would like to do more as it was quite uplifting, and the money was good!
A WELL-PREPARED MODEL
As a professional model undertaking many jobs in many locations, I was not nervous before this Models Direct shoot for Comformatic because I relied on my experience and professionalism. The day before the shoot, I spent time checking and packing my wardrobe and making sure I had plenty of choices of clothes for the client. I also packed make-up, hair essentials, my model portfolio, and took copies of maps and location instructions with me before I set out. I made sure I was on time, and introduced myself to the people in charge of the shoot. I conducted myself in a quiet, businesslike and conscientious manner. The assignment involved being filmed 1) at the front door of the house welcoming the bed fitter, and 2) in twin bed with a male model, reading magazines, pretending to be asleep, using the controls on the electrically operated bed. The gentleman representing the bed company was kind and courteous to us all. Each job brings a new experience, and of course, confidence comes from knowing that one is doing a great job. Would I recommend the experience to others? Yes, if they are comfortable with the camera, and prepared to put the work in beforehand, have huge amounts of patience, and understand that there is a lot of hanging around on the shoot day.
I enjoyed my second Models Direct assignment with Comfomatic very much, and I was delighted to be chosen again, with the possibility of more bookings in the future. As usual there was a warm welcome from the crew. I think the thing I enjoyed most was being told that the shoot was the best they had done and that they were very pleased with me. I learned to make my movements precise and to acknowledge timing for different aspects of the video. I think modelling is fun, but you must arrive prepared with at least two or three clothing options and be immaculately presented, to be successful. I chose Models Direct because of their diversity in representing all ages and types of people.Apply: Female modelling
I really enjoyed the time that I spent at the studio. The modelling assignment with Talent Management involved posing as a client for an educational video for Adam Eason's School of Therapeutic Hypnosis. I was a little apprehensive before the assignment as hypnosis is not something I have ever considered. The assignment involved making 4 short video clips demonstrating the basic techniques of hypnosis that therapists use, such as holding a pen and not being able to drop it, and locking your arm and not being able to bend it. It was a really enjoyable experience. Adam and his photographer were a pleasure to work with and made me feel very at ease. I spent some time with Adam before we started shooting, and he talked me through the processes, so that I felt as comfortable as possible. It was a very educational assignment and I was fascinated by what can be achieved when you engage your mind. I am very pleased with how the assignment went and I look forward to more opportunities such as this. Talent Management are a great agency to work with and I have recommended to others who are interested in working in the industry.
I modelled for Johnson & Johnson for the day for their Nicorette brand. Although I have modelled before, I'm always quite nervous as you never know what to expect. The team were really friendly and professional and made sure we were looked after especially as we spent most of the day in a car with the windows open on a very windy day. I would definitely recommend Models Direct to others thinking of doing something different. Thanks so much for the experience.
4D BABY SCAN
For my assignment with Models Direct I was asked to take part in modelling a 4D baby scan for a new Harley Street clinic. It was an exciting and reassuring experience- an ideal assignment for a mum-to-be! I received constant communication from the model management team and their efficiency has shown them to be a worthwhile and trustworthy agency to work for. Thoroughly enjoyed this assignment and very happy with the results!
ANOTHER LOVELY JOB!
The modelling job for Advanced Vision Care was very pleasant. The company was thoroughly friendly and professional and I was made to feel very comfortable. As an experienced model and actress I felt comfortable throughout the job, and enjoyed the friendliness of the clients. Thanks Models Direct! Another lovely assignment!
JOHNSON & JOHNSON SHOOT
I enjoyed being a model for the first time, it was fun. I don't get nervous generally, so this was not a problem. I really enjoyed working with the 2 other models, who were great fun. We made each other laugh to keep our smiles genuine for the photoshoot, which was for a Johnson & Johnson quit smoking product. I also learnt some new modelling skills on the shoot, such as learning the correct positioning to avoid the product reflecting light. I initially joined up for extra cash as I am studying for my Masters. Joining a modelling agency like Models Direct makes it so much easier to find work as I am busy with my studies otherwise. Thanks Models Direct!Apply: Female modelling
A GOOD ROLE MODEL
I modelled for the Elys fashion show for the second time, and again it was great fun with the other models and the Elys staff, who were very helpful, fun and down-to-earth. I really enjoyed the assignment as I was very familiar with the work and it was easy to fit in as the staff were very helpful. They also had a good sense of humour at all times, and the most enjoyable part was that they cracked open the Champagne just before we hit the catwalk, so depending on your shoes it’s make or break! We had our hair and make-up done, tried on all our outfits then were given lunch and were free to roam the store for a few hours-dangerous as there were so many lovely things. Then we walked down a very long catwalk in front of lots of people. They had a large turn-out of men, women and children. I always get good reviews and feed back from ladies of the same age group as me as I am a very realistic curvy size 12. I am always confident in this setting as I think I am a good honest role model for ladies in my age group. I have to say I always enjoy the work I do - it is diverse and fun and if you can model a swimsuit and not look like Claudia Schiffer in front of hundreds of people you can do anything!
GOOD HOUSEKEEPING MAGAZINE MODEL
I signed up with Talent Management for some extra cash and to gain new experiences. My first modelling assignment was to do a catwalk show in Croydon modelling clothes for the Good Housekeeping magazine. At first I was excited, then, as the time drew nearer, a little nervous as had I never done anything like this before! On the day I met up with five other models all ready for the assignment. They were a great bunch of ladies and felt at ease immediately, the time flew by with a practice run which included six outfit changes and displaying the clothes on the catwalk. Then we had the show! I would definitely do something like this again, it was good fun and I also earned some extra cash. I found the assignment well organised and would recommend to others to give it a go purely for the experience of it all!
I enjoyed my day catwalk modelling for Models Direct in a department store in Croydon. All the team were friendly, as were the other models. The day was well-organized and it was always clear what was expected of us - and we got very nice sandwiches and Danish pastries! I'd more than happily repeat the experience.
I thoroughly enjoyed my assignment with Models Direct. It involved modelling for an orthopaedic bed company, which required a lot of ‘lying around’! Still photographs were taken as well as a video with a presenter describing the bed’s functionality. I was directed to use the remote control to raise and lower the bed. I found it very interesting to see just what goes into making a short film, with regard to timing, positioning, lighting and background noise checks. I was treated very well, everyone was very friendly and welcoming, and I can't wait to do more shoots. Great fun, loved it!
