    It was an amazing experience as I was asked to be the doctor for an NHS photo shoot.  I really enjoyed St Thomas Hospital on the Thames river in London - what a great hospital!  I loved connecting with the team and patients, and had a wonderful time role-playing consultations.  I would highly recommend Models Direct as something to apply for, then enjoy and get paid for it for the assignments. I met some really lovely professional people - thank you so much!!!  Natalia 


  • Gillian, Reference: 1503, Model fee: £200.00

    Today's assignment was set in the Simulation and Interactive Learning Centre at St.Thomas's Hospital London.

    I was to to take the part of a nurse for the NHS Professional's latest advertising material. It involved wearing a nurses uniform and and being involved in various activities. I had to instruct another nurse how to set up a syringe for an injection, have discussions with the doctor and staff nurse about various patients and taking the temperature, pulse and blood pressure of a child patient who was lying in bed, and to give comfort and reassurance to the child's mother.

    The idea was to portray the sort of activities that would normally happen in a hospital and to generally interact with one another whilst working on a ward and walking in the corridors.

    The crew were very friendly and easy to get on with and seemed very pleased with what we had all achieved.

    It was a very enjoyable experience and I look forward to seeing the photos in due course.

    Thank you once again Talent Management.


  • Ingrid, Reference: 1486, Model fee: £400.00

    This shoot for  Steelcase furniture  was my first time doing an advert with such a large production team so I was a little nervous, but they made me feel right at ease as soon as I came in. They were all welcoming and friendly which made me feel very comfortable. I definitely enjoyed this assignment, learned new skills and made new friends too. Thank you Models Direct!


  • Nikki, Reference: 1481, Model fee: £220.00

    Just had a fantastic day meeting new fantastic people....fellow models, photographers and make up artist!  We were very well looked after by our hosts, made to feel welcome and so I was excited but very relaxed. I was a model for a medical client's brochure and was also in an acting role for their online advert.  My role was of a daughter having to find full time care for my mum, so shots were required of us with the carer mainly in the house and garden. I had to start out looking worried and anxious for my mum, but then happy and relieved that the care agency could help.

    I would absolutely recommend Models Direct and these experiences as each assignment offers a sense of adventure - all are totally different, you never know what to expect or what lovely people you are going to meet.  I am definitely gaining in confidence with each assignment and can't wait for the next one!!


  • Lis, Reference: 1482, Model fee: £220.00

    I was very nervous before I arrived at the venue because this was my first assignment.  I was really gratified at how kind everyone was and how helpful, and yes I would definitely do this again.  We all had a laugh it was such fun.  I had to portray an elderly lady who had a daughter who was at her wits end about caring for her.  She finally gets this lovely young live in carer who takes over the care of said lady and daughter can now go off and live her life.  I had to remember not to be too sprightly (on a crutch - really) and had to remember to keep shaking my hands when holding anything, and to keep smiling!  I would recommend doing this, after all getting paid for having fun - it's a no brainer.

    It is a very good idea to join an agency, though I admit I don't have the IT skills for updating my portfolio.  I have had to rely on my daughter for uploading it in the first place.  Now she says she will update it all for me.

    I joined up on the basis that if my dog could be accepted and earn some money then why not me as well.  And of the three of us I'm the first to be called up!

    I loved it.  Thank you Models Direct.

    I've had such an amazing time being a model for the Textile Center of Excellence for the day. I've never done any modelling in the past  so to get such a fantastic opportunity was great. Everyone made me feel very at home and comfortable the entire day.  I loved modelling such a variety of clothing, from Hats to Vintage Clothing to Wacky Outfits! The entire shoot took place in an unused textile mill. They were going for a grungy look to make the clothes pop and it certainly worked. Wow, some of the photos looked amazing. The minute I got in front of the camera, I had a burst of confidence and tried lots of different things out. The photographers were very happy with the fact I was posing myself instead of needing to be instructed. It was an overall great day, I even made a new friend and got her number even though we live two hours away. I'm so happy that I decided to sign up to Models Direct, very very pleased, especially with the contact, quick response to emails and no hassle with phone calls.
    Faultless! Thank you again for giving me such an opportunity.


  • Ieva, Reference: 1489, Model fee: £500.00

    It was a great couple of days working alongside people from iCabbi. My booker Molly is the best and always makes sure I have all the information I need for the job.  This time I was working as a promotional model in the Milton Keynes trade show. The iCabbi team was very welcoming and relaxed - it wasn't hard working from them as they were cracking jokes half of the time, which made the time go very fast. I would definitely recommend taking upon a promotional job like this, so far I have only had good experiences when being booked by Models Direct!


  • Anna, Reference: 1413, Model fee: £150.00

    I had a lovely afternoon taking part in a photo shoot for a Brochure to promote Newfield Lodge Care Home in Castleford.  Myself and 3 other models (Pat, Graham and Michael) from Talent Management had to partake in various scenarios, showing different settings and activities that residents can take part in e.g. playing carpet boules and skittles as well as card games. Pat and I were asked to ice buns and Michael and Graham played dominos.  I also played the part of a grandma with a model mum and daughter to show that family and friends are welcome to visit. We were all photographed having a sing along whilst Michael played the organ.

    The photographer and design team managed the shoot very well - they gave us good direction making us all feel comfortable and at ease.  I really enjoyed the experience and meeting lots of people.

    I would recommend Talent Management to anyone wishing to enjoy lots of different experiences and to gain in confidence. Talent Management look after all the arrangements and actively promote their models. I'm looking forward to my next assignment.


  • Anum, Reference: 1475, Model fee: £150.00

    Acting and Modelling for the global office furniture company Steelcase was a really nice first job to received from Models Direct. The film crew and director all made me feel very welcomed on the day and it was a very chilled atmosphere, not to mention the free lunch, snacks and drinks provided all day long.
    I would definitely recommend Models Direct as a great platform to pursue work in the talent industry!


  • Simona, Reference: 1477, Model fee: £150.00

    At first I was really nervous because this was my first assignment - it turned out to be not that scary though!  It was such a fun day and I met great people, one of which was a Models Direct model. We had to have shots taken for Solent Forts Hotel, and present its features in the best way. It was such a pleasure to spend the day in such a beautiful place!  I had a great time on my first photo shoot, and now I am sure that I made the best choice to become a model.

    Another fun day!  This time I was with Graham, Anna and Michael at a home owned by Ideal Care Homes - a very smart and well run establishment. They were updating the brochure and asked us to pose as residents in different scenarios to give a full indication of the facilities.  Personally I was involved in scenes at the hairdressers - icing cakes - playing cards - reading in the lovely garden and having sing round the organ. The home staff were so welcoming and the team in charge including the photographer so very organised that it was delightful to work with them. I changed clothes so many times I lost count, but fortunately having had experience of this kind of shoot before had taken along lots of different items to give a wide choice of costume. This is something I have learned as I have gained experience - always take more props than you think you need... If they are not used - no matter!

    Every time I have worked for Talent Management I have had a wonderful experience, learning more about the industry.  My assignments are always so well documented and organised by Molly - thank you! Do sign up and get involved - you will have a whale of a time, and get paid for it!!


  • Keeley, Reference: 1460, Model fee: £300.00

    Having my first assignment modelling for a wheelchair company in Cardiff was amazing. I was so excited as this is what I've always envisioned myself doing. The staff, photographer and OT were all so lovely and happy to help. I was asked to have shots taken at various locations by Cardiff Bay - in a bar, bowling alley and a few shots outside. The photographer was so happy to give directions when needed.

    I thought I would have been nervous, this being my first shoot, but I was full of adrenaline yet felt so relaxed. The other models I was working with were more experienced but more than happy to help with advice on what was best and they were genuinely lovely people.  My confidence was really brought out on the shoot as I felt relaxed and not pressured one bit. I felt even more comfortable knowing there was an OT (Occupational Therapist) as she helped to position me in the wheelchair correctly and was there to assist with everything I would generally need help with. I loved the whole set up of the shoot and changing into different outfits. The day was the perfect first time experience and I cannot wait to do another one.

    Talent Management is very much so worth joining. They stick to their word and are more than helpful with any worries and general queries - I had a lot, but nothing was too much to ask. I am very pleased with how well the assignment went and even shocked myself with how well I did and the confidence I had. I wasn't expecting to receive an assignment when I joined up, but I'm so happy I did and was able to enjoy and experience the model lifestyle. Thank you so much!


  • Jill, Reference: 1461, Model fee: £150.00

    I had a fabulous day shooting at The Chateau Rhianfa Hotel in Anglesey. I was there to model for their latest brochures. From start to finish, I was treated like royalty. The client gave good guidance, and from the very first photograph I felt confident. Myself and the other models were given clear instructions as to what to do in between laughs with the crew.  I learnt that you can be a model at any age as long as you are respectful of what you are there for.  I joined Talent Management to pursue my dreams, and I would definitely recommend them.


  • Serena, Reference: 1463, Model fee: £300.00


    This was my 4th time working for RGB Building Supplies, they are amazing bunch of people. The best part of this assignment is standing in the photo booth, posing for pictures with customers!  It's fun, and I enjoy it so much!  I'm looking forward to my next job with them.  Models Direct are amazing!!!


  • Krissy, Reference: 1464, Model fee: £150.00

    Ideal Care Homes were friendly people to work with. The shoot was far to travel to but totally worth it.  Thank you Models Direct!

  • Emma, Reference: 1465, Model fee: £200.00

    Another great assignment booked via Models Direct. This was a photographic shoot in Newark, the team were great and it was made easy by the clear direction.  It was nice meeting other models on the day, the weather was kind to us for the outdoor shots and we all had a great time.  I am glad I joined Models Direct and look forward to the next assignment.


  • Kirsty, Reference: 1467, Model fee: £300.00

    I massively enjoyed my recent assignment being a promotional model for RGB Building Supplies. The communication from Models Direct leading up to the assignment was excellent and they were happy to answer any questions I had. Everything was well organised so I felt really confident. The assignment itself was so much fun - I worked with another lovely model and also made so many friends. The atmosphere was friendly and relaxed, I was well looked after and had lots of laughs! I really hope I get to do the show again next year because I enjoyed it so much!!  Massive thanks to Models Direct for everything!


  • Eileen, Reference: 1468, Model fee: £150.00

    I was not nervous at all on my shoot for Ideal Care Homes, the experience was fun right from the start. The 2 other models with me were great, as was the photographer and the chap from the company who was responsible for the brochure being produced. The girl from Models Direct was very professional but good fun as well.  The assignment was at a care home and were shot in various locations around the home doing different things e.g. eating a meal, dancing and walking into the building being greeted by a care home assistant (model).  The most enjoyable part was probably meeting the other models and crew, and having a good chat but taking the shoot seriously at the same time.

    The new skills I learnt include how to keep smiling as well as being natural and not posing.  I am by nature a fairly confident person, but this has also made me realise that there are ways of enjoying yourself and being paid for it. This is a total change from being an 'Uncivil Servant' for 38 years!! I have not done a lot of promoting myself, but I now have some professional photos done and things are looking quite promising. I would definitely recommend modelling to friends etc, and my husband is quite interested now that he has heard of my experience. 

    I joined Models Direct as I had often thought about it, but like many people I thought that modelling was just for younger people. How wrong can you be?! All in all it, was a good all-round experience.


  • Lucy, Reference: 1412, Model fee: £666.00


    Thanks to Models Direct, I got the opportunity to work on a shoot for Pure Gym. The shoot was in a working gym and I was shot using the gym equipment, so not only did I get to work on a great job but I also got a workout! Everybody I met was friendly and we had lots of fun. I also got to wear an array of different workout gear in all sorts of styles and colors. It was a very high energy day but worth all the sweat and muscle aches the next day.


  • Dawn, Reference: 1400, Model fee: £200.00

    I have thoroughly enjoyed this assignment and can't wait to be in front of the camera again. It's certainly given me confidence to pursue a career in this sector.

    The assignment involved still shots and videos for MediTek stair lifts  to be used for promotional material.

    I was a little nervous before the shoot but my nerves soon disappeared once shooting began . The team were very lovely to work with.

    I decided to join up with Talent Management after having a photoshoot and feeling very natural in front of the camera

    Thank you so much to Talent Management!

    I really enjoyed my shoot yesterday, it was absolutely amazing. The assignment was a photo shoot for a Chanel 5 TV production of a new Dating show, I was nervous to start with, but the crew made me at ease. I would love to do another shoot as it was such an incredible experience, so thanks to my agency Talent Management!

     


  • Arunima, Reference: 1402, Model fee: £200.00

    This was my first shoot for Talent Management with a company called Invacare. As the disabled model on the shoot, I was promoting one of their wheelchairs and the independence it gives. I was shooting with two other able bodied models and we had to pretend that we were getting ready for a night out.

    It was a really fun day and the people at Invacare were lovely. The photographer made me feel very comfortable, especially as I was nervous for the first few shots.

    Would definitely recommend the experience and can't wait to update my portfolio with the pictures!


  • Sarah, Reference: 1399, Model fee: £150.00

    Getting paid to eat and drink champagne!


    This was my first assignment with Talent Management as a feature model (I was mother of the bride) for a bridal photoshoot at the Talland Bay hotel in Cornwall for their website and new brochure. I was a little nervous beforehand but also excited for the experience. There were six models (3 girls, 3 guys) and it turned out to be a really fun day. We spent the first couple of hours having our hair and makeup done in one of the hotel rooms, outfits were also provided. The photographer spent the next three hours taking shots of all the parts of a normal wedding day from finishing touches in the hotel room getting ready whilst drinking champagne with the bride/bridesmaid and mother of the bride, top table reception and speeches, various family style outdoor shots in the beautiful garden to evening shots in the bar. The hotel were wonderful and not only set up a fabulous mock reception scene but also provided food and drinks, as well as Champagne for the shots that required it. It was a thoroughly enjoyable day. Everyone was very friendly and it was wonderful to meet and chat to the owners and staff of the hotel, the makeup artist/hair stylist and the other models. I joined Talent Management to get more experience in modelling, meet new people and just to have some fun and of course it is great to get paid for each job too. My kids are getting older and I have more time to do this so hopefully some more work will come my way soon. All in all a really fun experience.
