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.Apply: Female modelling
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.
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.
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.
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.Apply: Female modelling
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
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!
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!
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!
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 !Apply: Female modelling
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.
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!
Really enjoyed being a part of this evening ..It was amazing opportunity to meet some AMAZING people and mix with the rich and famous .. Lovely to meet the Guys from Spanner in the Works Spoof entertainment , they really made our evening. Would definitely love to be involved in an assignment like this again the experience was fab. Thanks you Models Direct!
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
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.
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!
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!!
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.
