    I was really nervous before starting my contract to be a fittings model for Matalan, but everyone really made me feel at ease. I'm learning new things every day!  Thank you Models Direct.

  • Maddison, Model fee: £150.00

    The whole experience was amazing - I met some really lovely people that I plan on keeping in contact with and it has really boosted my confidence as a model. The best part of the day was when we had all finished and the models got together and did a big silly photo, which worked really well and everyone seemed to be having so much fun!  Thank you Models Direct for this opportunity.


  • Matisse, Model fee: £150.00

    This was a great second assignment where I was asked to stand with a blank cheque whilst the client took photos.  My expression was supposed to be that of someone who had won a lot of money, it was such a fun experience!  I really enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and the people who were there to greet me were very kind and welcoming. As always, Models Direct have been brilliant at keeping in touch and finding me fun and interesting assignments. I will look forward to my next one.


  • Anita, Reference: CE707127, Model fee: £150.00

    It was my first assignment and I was slightly nervous, but mainly excited. The assignment involved posing as a jackpot winner in a casino. It was brilliant posing for pictures imagining I had won a huge sum of money.  Everyone was friendly and explained everything and I enjoyed meeting the other models who were great.  Absolutely brilliant experience, thank you Models Direct!


  • Yasmin, Model fee: £150.00

    I was acting as an office worker for the day. It was great to meet with new people and understand the business I was on the assignment with. Everyone was really friendly and this is certainly something I would do again.  I really enjoyed my role among all the interviews taking place throughout the day.  I was asked to dress as a professional and smart worker who was employed by an estate agent. This to me came easily as I am already working in an office environment full time.  New skills I learnt include patience and networking with people.

    I would recommend this experience as you get to meet new people and learn something new about different business or companies.

    Anyone thinking of joining a talent agency, I would advise you to do so. It is not full time but when you get a job it's nice to do something on the side that is different from your normal day to day work. I haven't updated my portfolio that much as not much has changed since I registered.  Models Direct are very good at keeping you in the loop and they explain the process very well. I signed up with Models Direct as I wanted to do something different aside from my 9-5 working week. This offers the opportunity to meet with new people and place yourself in situations that you wouldn't have expected to be in. It is also great to get the extra cash on the side!


  • Lucy, Reference: CE761568, Model fee: £150.00


    My first assignment for Models Direct was for an estate agency advert. My role was to play an office worker on camera. It was a fun and relaxed afternoon’s work and I got to meet some lovely people. I would definitely recommend Models Direct to anyone looking to get professional work in the modelling / film industry or even if you just want to earn some extra cash! I’ve already got my next assignment booked with Models Direct - looking forward to it!

  • Lucy, Reference: CE761568, Model fee: £150.00

    This is my second assignment for Models Direct within two days! Today, I modelled wedding dresses and accessories for a bridal wear company. Once I arrived, I had my makeup and hair professionally done then I was helped into a beautiful wedding dress. I got to work with two other lovely models from Models Direct and we all had a great time getting glammed up and posing in front of the camera! I would highly recommend Models Direct to anyone, whether you are new to the industry or already experienced. Either way, it’s a fun way to make some extra money on the side! Can’t wait for my next booking!


  • Annie, Reference: A682818, Model fee: £150.00

    My first assignment through Models Direct was with Stargem Bridal. Beforehand I was very nervous as it was my first time modelling. The people from Stargem were extremely wonderful and made me feel comfortable right from the start. I was nervous with meeting the other models but they were both so kind, it was great to become friends with them. The whole day was so much fun, filled with laughter! I definitely would love to work with them all again and I certainly will just enjoy every moment of any model assignment I may come across.


  • ingrid, Model fee: £150.00

     

    Although I am an experienced model, I thoroughly enjoyed the new experience with both Molly at Models Direct and all responsible people involved at the Aspers Casino photographic assignment. It was handled very professionally and with an easy approach to make us models feel very comfortable. No stress at all, it was fun to present a happy face for the photographer and it was great to be able to interact with the other models! Thank you for choosing me.


  • Lina, Reference: 1522, Model fee: £200.00

    Being a model for the NHS felt great. I was not really nervous before, just excited about my role as I have always wanted to do something like this. I had a great time doing the assignment and I would definitely love to do it again.

    I most enjoyed role play, being a mother to a child which is something new to me but meeting other models was great and working together was also one of the best parts.

    I learnt a few things about the hospital and how to be a mother which made me feel more confident that I can do modelling and role play.

    I would definitely recommend this experience to others as it is very enjoyable and rewarding as you feel as if you've achieved something by being part of an advertising campaign which is really a great feeling.

    I would advise just to go for it if modelling is something you want to do, it is a greatly rewarding experience. Models Direct does all the work for you, organising everything between the talent and the client to work together which is great to know that you have a security in that. I have been updating my e-profile, and I now see that it is very important to keep it up to ensure more work.

    The reason why I joined Models Direct is that I have always wanted to model. This agency has allowed my dream and hobby to come true and for that I am very grateful I have given it a chance and joined. The experience alone is a very good reason to join, but it is also very handy to make easy cash as the assignments are so enjoyable it hardly feels like work!


  • Lavina, Reference: N690980, Model fee: £200.00

    Being booked for my first job with Models Direct was great, and I was not nervous - I felt very comfortable and relaxed. The most fun part was the actual shooting and interaction with the other person and photographer. The assignment involved me wearing a hijab to act as a woman who is learning IT Skills from an IT Instructor on a computer. I learnt that no matter your background or culture, you can get into someone else's shoes and impersonate and act the part for the role. It was my first time wearing a hijab. I would definitely recommend the experience to others to be able to explore different areas in their lives. Joining an agency helps with finding the right jobs suited to your profile and also the commitment to follow through. I have been updating my portfolio to ensure I am successful in getting work. I joined Models Direct to get more experience and I believe I am photogenic as well.

  • Joan, Model fee: £220.00

    It was a great day , shooting for Resource Marketing, all of the crew made me feel at ease.

    We did Some acting for video, lots of photos in groups and some on my own , I was not nervous at all , it was fun and I would recommend it to any one I know to give it a go.

    The crew and photographers and other models wear brilliant, I would love to work with them again Photographer was very helpful with showing me the correct way to sit and stand for setting shots. All in all a great day . Thank you Models Direct!


  • Laura, Model fee: £120.00

    I had a great time modelling on the recent Kcom lifestyle advertising shoot. Thank you Models Direct for the booking!


  • Corinne, Model fee: £150.00

    This is my first assignment with Models Direct,When I woke up this morning I was extremely excited.

    The shoot itself was really good,the photographer made you feel really comfortable in front of the camera and was a really funny guy.

    We did an office environment shoot for the Salisbury Group's site and advertising material and the best part was when we had a photo with everyone together. Everyone was just so friendly and the atmosphere was relaxed but also professional. I would say to anyone who wants to do this work to do it, as when the chance comes along to get an assignment it is the best!

    I joined Models Direct because they seemed professional and also because of the type of assignments and businesses that they work with. I am very ambitious and hope to get a lot more work through them.

    Loved it and can't wait to do it again! Sign me up for everything! :D


  • Heidi, Model fee: £150.00

    I had a really lovely day and felt like I learned a lot. Especially in relation to lighting and makeup. I was a little nervous before hand, however this quickly went away. I wanted to to join Models Direct in order to gain experience and also make a little extra money. I would definitely recommend it to a friend or colleague looking to do the same. I find it difficult to update my portfolio on my phone when I don't have access to a laptop, perhaps this could be something to consider improving?

    In this assignment I was asked to pose with a number of cleaning products and represent a cleaning company. The directions from the photographer were very good. Simple and direct. It made it easy and enjoyable.


  • Jennifer, Reference: 1518, Model fee: £200.00


    Hi, I am Jennifer.  I did a photo shoot at an NHS hospital, and this was my second assignment through Models Direct.  I was not nervous, the staff were very helpful and made it fun. Also the other models were very kind and one female model helped me remove a bracelet that I couldn't (it was necessary to complete the job). I was asked to change into uniform and pretend to be a nurse.  The best part was to work with a child model who was really lovely and made my job so easy. I was asked to pretend to be a nurse taking notes from a doctor and then take the child's temperature.  It was a really fantastic experience, and I enjoyed every minute of it. The more jobs you do the less nervous you become, because you tend to have an idea of what to expect. I will definitely recommend Talent Management to anyone who is interested in the industry.

  • Mary, Reference: 1506, Model fee: £200.00

    I wasn't nervous before my shoot with the NHS.  I had fun chatting to the 'doctor' on the shoot.  I just had to lay in bed and answer questions about my reason for being in hospital, then I chatted with the 'doctor' on being discharged.  I didn't necessarily learn new skills as I am used to working on stills shoots, but I would recommend this type of work as it is all great experience. 

    In terms of joining an agency, I think you have to be patient and not expect too much too soon.  I signed with Models Direct because they approached me.


  • Lin, Reference: 1517, Model fee: £200.00

    It was great being a model for the day, I was relaxed and had fun with the others, and I would definitely to do that again.  I enjoyed every moment of the assignment.  I was acting as a child patient's mother for NHS Professional's latest advertising material. What I have learnt from this experience is to devote yourself, contribute towards great team work and be confident.  I would recommend other people to take the opportunity for this kind of work through Models Direct as I am doing.  It requires ambition to gain experience and through this you will certainly gain good money.


  • Isabelle, Reference: 1510, Model fee: £200.00

    I was feeling very comfortable about the assignment. I was asked to be a doctor for an NHS photo shoot. I had the good fortune to be able to interact with an adorable little Chinese girl, who was to be my patient. I adore children so to  interact with her was a real treat. Her pretend mum and myself managed to make her feel more at ease and managed to draw a few shy smiles out of her. That alone was such a pleasure. We were asked to look like we were talking to her and the mum, then a bit later I had to report to a nurse about my patient. If the shoot had been a longer affair, I would have had an even more fantastic time with my little patient, who was in the end warming up to her role.

    Any advice for someone else? Such jobs can be fun for sure. It is my first one with Models Direct, but I am used to have my pictures taken or being filmed for other purposes, so I have no confidence issues about it. I loved being able to interact with everyone involved in the shoot. I hope they all remember how I made them all laugh a little!

    Why joining you? I did it years ago when my life circumstances were different, and regular work would have been so welcome. Today, I am in a different place, but I would still hugely welcome doing more such work to take my mind off more demanding responsibilities. Being way too busy these days, I forget to look on your site for jobs but if you can put me forward for more assignments, I would certainly consider them, if my time allows.

    Thank you for giving me the opportunity. Warmest regards to the whole team. Isabelle


  • Lana, Reference: 1509, Model fee: £200.00


    I wasn't nervous before my first job for NHS Professionals, for me its all about meeting people and being part of a team. I enjoyed my experience and felt a bond with my employers and would happily work with them again. It was confidence building and I personally believe in the cause. I look forward to earning more money through Models Direct!


  • Christine, Reference: 1507, Model fee: £200.00

    I spent a great morning ad-libbing as a hospital ward manager for a promotional campaign to recruit NHS staff. It was a photo shoot, but did involve a little acting in order to 'get into the role'. I was working with a well-organised friendly group of people who made us welcome and ensured we were all at ease. The assignment went smoothly, and we were not hanging around. The direction was clear and the company seemed happy with the results.

    I would definitely recommend modelling to others thinking about doing something different from the regular 9 to 5 - especially to earn a little extra money!  Thanks Models Direct!

  • Oksana, Reference: 1494, Model fee: £600.00

    I had a nice opportunity working for the Avon TSA Group at The Automechanika Show. I met a lot of new and interesting people. My colleagues were so helpful and polite. It  was great experience and I really enjoyed. Thank you Models Direct!


  • 1497, Reference: Marketa, Model fee: £600.00

    I was very nervous before my promotional  assignment for Avon TSA, at the Automechanika Exhibition as it was my first one but when I arrived at the exhibition everyone was really friendly. Along with  another model from Models Direct,  we were asked  to promote the brand, bring more people to the stand and offer people coffee. I really enjoyed it!  It was a really good experience for me and I made new friend! Thank you Models Direct for this great experience !


  • Josephine, Reference: 1498, Model fee: £200.00

    The assignment today was good fun, and would like to do similar things in the future. It was a shoot for the NHS Professionals so I was given a nurses uniform and then had to do various poses such as taking someone's blood pressure, taking blood etc. I learnt to just be natural and chat away during photos being taken rather than being static.  The most enjoyable part was meeting all the different people e.g. the make up artist, photographer and other models.

    I would definitely recommend this experience to others as it is just something different to what you would normally do (I'm an accountant!). The advice I would give is just be yourself, turn up on time and listen to instructions. I found Models Direct to be really good and informative with regards to my most recent assignment.


  • Jane, Reference: 1499, Model fee: £125.00

    Meeting new people, learning new stuff, enjoying an exciting work environment, making choices about how I work; these are some of the really enjoyable aspects of working for Models Direct.  My latest assignment involved modelling a skin-care product and I thoroughly enjoyed hearing the brilliant sales results coming through during the live TV show.  At the age of 61 I'm loving it!
