    Being part of the Cineworld campaign with two other models from MD was a great experience for me as this was my first ever video shoot which allowed me to be creative with my modelling experience. The shoot involved many re-takings of camera shots as well as having to be aware of the layout of the new cinema environment. I felt the day ran smoothly and I felt comfortable to talk and interact with the two other models,  during filming.

    Overall I really enjoyed the day and what experience it gave me  e.g. meeting new people, being in front of a camera and interacting with a team of professional people.

    I would recommend this type of  experience to others who may be interested in pursuing a career within this sector as it may lead to bigger and better things in the future.

  • Sarah, Model fee: £182.00

    I was very excited for the days video shoot with Cineworld. Beforehand I met the other two models who were also selected from MD to do the same shoot,  they were lovely and we got on immediately. The Crew arrived, told us what was required and we all discussed what we would talk about during the filming. We were then taxied to our second location where we changed into different clothing and completed another filming session. I loved every moment and the crew were very professional . Great assignment!

  • Chloe, Model fee: £146.00

    I was lucky enough to be chosen for a modelling job in Glasgow for Cineworld. I was extremely nervous before hand as this was filming, whereas all my previous experiences have been photo shoots. 

    We were told to pretend we were 3 friends out at the cinema. The most enjoyable part was meeting the other girls, they were so lovely, easy to work with and we had a good laugh.

    The best thing I think I'll take away from my experience  today is that it's always best to be yourself. 

    This is my second job with Models Direct , they have been extremely reliable and professional. I would recommend signing up with them if you want to get into the modelling/acting industry

    It was a Really nice experience shooting for Cineworld ! Really amazing! Thank you very much Models Direct !


  • Ingrid, Model fee: £150.00

    My day today: Starting on a lovely frosty winter's day in a Country Park, modelling in a photo-shoot, supporting emotional health and promoting a positive outlook for those who suffer with worry, stress and feeling sad.

    It was a great job, working with two lovely girls (client) and an easy-to-approach, good humoured, no-fuss photographer, not to forget Barnicale, the little Jack Russell Terrier, who also took successfully part in the photo-shoot.

    Assignments like mine today make you feel a photoshoot-star! I loved it. Thank you Molly from Models Direct UK, for putting me forward in your always friendly, helpful and efficient way.

  • Annie, Model fee: £150.00

    This was my third assignment with Models Direct since joining them a couple of months ago, and was another very enjoyable job. This time I was recording an website video for an online contact lenses retailer, and so I had a short script to learn. The team were very welcoming and it was very interesting to be shown round their offices. It's another video to add to my showreel and I'm grateful to Models Direct for always delivering consistently professional job opportunities.

    I took part in a Doritos crisp Christmas advert, at first as I have never down anything like this before. But I enjoyed the whole experience. Thanks to Models Direct  for the opportunity! 

  • phoebe

    Felt great being an extra on the Doritos christmas campaign for the day. Loved filming and loved meeting all the cast and crew, Thanks Models Direct!

  • Kirsty, Model fee: £244.00

    I had a great time on my assignment posing for Lazy Spa's latest promo video.

     We got to sit and relax in hot-tubs while filming for a promo video, Thanks Models Direct,
    it was very easy and relaxing!! It was fun being a model/actor for the day and I would love to do it again.

  • Susan, Model fee: £150.00

    Probably the best and most enjoyable shoot yet! It was great to be able to put my acting skills to good use and develop them further, and James the director of Northshot Production was great at putting everyone at their ease. The production team, a super friendly group of other actors, and the wonderful location of Mayfield House all made for the most chilled and enjoyable day. Thank you Models Direct!

  • Maria

    When I was short listed to take part in this assignment to be an extra on Doritos Christmas commercial, I was really excited as I didn't know what to expect. When I arrived on set I was quite nervous to find out what my role was. My role was to take a selfie at a Christmas party. Once I got into character I really enjoyed it and started having fun with it. It was a great atmosphere and the best part for me was the final part of the party where everyone was dancing and rocking to the live band performing. I would definitely recommend signing up to Models Direct even if it's just for the experience of being part of a great production. Would definitely love to do something similar again.

    I was nervous about going as it was all very last minute and I knew very little and was also disappointed when they dropped to £50 for each person, I do think we deserved a little more but apart from that it was a very fun day being extras for this crisp commercial, as we recreated a party scene, there were some dancers and a band and we just had to act a little crazy and dance to the band and I really enjoyed the experience.Thanks Models Direct I would  love to do get more jobs especially in modelling.

  • Ashleigh

    I really liked doing this assignment I received from Models Direct and having the opportunity to do something like this. I was a little nervous at first, but when I got there I knew people were feeling the same as was in the same boat,not knowing anyone. This went very quickly and I spoke to quite a few people. By this I have made new friends and we still talk from this. It was so nice to meet new people. It made me feel better and more secure about the whole thing and It is definitely something I would like to do again. The most enjoyable part was....well,most of it really. The assignment was for a crisp advert which I can't wait to see. We had to pretend to be  at a friend's Christmas party. We had a band in and you-tubers. I gained a bit of confidence from this. I love taking photos and modeling and being able to be apart of something. I enjoy singing, dancing, taking photos and a little acting. I was happy to have something from Models Direct  as it has taken a while,I would like more to do. I joined up because I like the idea of modeling on the side as I love taking photos and the money and trying new and different things.

    I really enjoyed my experience being an extra for the Doritos Christmas campaign and would definitely like to do it again. Thank you Models Direct!

  • Marta, Model fee: £150.00

    That was an absolutely lovely day shooting for British lion eggs latest campaign, I enjoyed it a lot, it was a lot of fun and the people I met was very nice and helpful.

    Atmosphere was great, overall a great experience! I hope I get a chance do do this again  in the future!
    I will recommend Models Direct to all my friends!

  • Marta, Model fee: £230.00

    Another amazing day, it was a 2h drive but worth it!  I met some very nice people again, they were looking after me and helping me a lot.  This was my second time working for Models Direct while pregnant and it was much more relaxing for me this time I have to say. I would love to do that kind of things more often. I recommend this agency to everyone!  The money wasn't the real motivation for me to join Models Direct, I just want to make good memories for the future while creating nice pictures.

    Thank you Models Direct ;)

  • Lucy, Model fee: £225.00

    Yesterday, I completed my third job with Models Direct Agency. This assignment was a photographic campaign for Green Motion Car & Van Rental Company. My role was to act as a customer alongside a model partner also from the agency. We had to pretend to be a couple looking to hire a new car from the dealership. It was an easy and enjoyable few hours work! I would definitely recommend Models Direct to anyone looking to pursue work in the modelling industry, even if you have no or little experience in this field! It's a great confidence boost plus its a nice little money earner on the side of a regular job!

  • Joanne, Model fee: £150.00

    I had the best day ever! The Northshot production crew were amazing and made us feel completely relaxed. Perfect grounds and made some new friends. 
    I was playing a 41 year old single mother who was changing her life around for the better,  for a trading software company commercial.

    It was great to work with such professional people.

    Thank you Models Direct, I would do it again tomorrow.

  • Kerllen, Model fee: £300.00


    I had the most amazing time on my shoot this week. I was made to feel very welcome by everyone from the team. There was coffee, snacks, water and fruits available throughout the day. I definitely want to do more jobs with Models Direct. 5 stars!

  • Annie, Reference: WQGS-4488, Model fee: £180.00

    Having only joined Models Direct less than a week ago, I was so pleased to receive my first assignment so quickly. Molly talked me through the job beforehand, and once I'd sent my self tape to audition, and had been selected, she then followed up with all the information for the shoot. I was filming a new online advert for Matched Bet, and was using autocue to deliver the script to camera. As this was a similar experience to previous work I have done, I felt comfortable, but the friendly team at Blue House Design also played a big part in creating a relaxed, but productive working environment. It was a very enjoyable shoot, and a great opportunity to add more filming work to my CV and showreel. I'm really glad I signed up to Models Direct, and I look forward to what's in store with future assignments.

    Awesome day from beginning to end! We were so well looked after, lovely people/company to work for, very easy-going, & lots of fun! Worked with 2 other models, really clicked, great sense of humour, & all supported one another throughout.

    This job was a photoshoot in a corporate environment, modelling numerous eyewear/glasses for a major eye care brand. Pics will be used for their corporate promotional material. Great photographer, great company, great models to work with. Fab experience! </p>

  • Jessica, Reference: NG102ES, Model fee: £225.00

    I was a bit apprehensive at first due to it being my first experience as a promotional model. After meeting other models I felt really comfortable and enjoyed my experience a lot. What I loved about my assignment was the purpose behind the experience, in which I felt very rewarded to be a part of. We were required to go up to women in Nottingham to take part in a task to help promote the lack of women donating their eggs in the UK. We had to engage individuals in order for them to take a balloon with a supposed value of £350 from an famous artist to mimic what it would be like to donate eggs due to the value of the balloon. I would recommend my experience as it taught me more about a subject I did not know much about, alongside increasing my confidence and willingness to help a needed cause.

    I personally decided to join Models Direct as an increase in confidence, in which I think it has. Furthermore I think if individuals want to sign up to the talent industry, then do so. It maybe daunting at first, but the excitement soon comes when you get picked to do an assignment.

    Kind regards,


  • Aina, Model fee: £225.00

    Models Direct is great because it holds all different type of jobs, possibilities and experiences.

    When I first received information about my assignment I was a little bit worried as I didn't know anything about fertility treatment, fertility clinics based here in UK or elsewhere, let alone anything that is connected with egg donation.
    There was no reason for my worries, because everything was explained, people that I ended up working were very interesting and their knowledge was on top, the day flew by, because I was intrigued and in that way it helped a lot with passing the information on to public. Being a mom myself I loved the idea of helping families that struggle in creating miracle of their life's. The cause of this assignment was incredibly sincere!

    It is never too late to try something new. It is never too late to achieve your dreams.  I signed up with Models Direct for that specific reason and today I can truly say it definitely pays off.  Do it! You never know what awaits you :)


  • Chloe, Model fee: £225.00

    I had a wonderful time being an actor for a fertility company.  It was great fun, met some wonderful people and would gladly do it again. The most enjoyable part of the day was getting a beautiful photo taken with a gorgeous little girl. We gave her a balloon and she was just over the moon!

    We were directed to stop passers by and give them a balloon, this balloon was only 1 out of 1000 with a Stuart Semple artwork on it and each are worth £350.  We would give these to a passer by and then get them to pass it on, the idea being just like when you donate your eggs, you are giving away something precious and amazing.

    It was a great experience and will be a good thing for my portfolio.

    I decided to join Models Direct as my mum told me to get into acting/modelling. It has taken 6 months to get my first job, and I am hoping now with my foot in the door, I will get lots more work.
