Four Models Experienced a Life of Luxury for the Day!

Four of our models got to experience a life of luxury for one assignment with client Penna TCS. Julia, Lomi, Mike and Marcus were posing for advertising material for Thomas Cook.

On the day they were paired up and asked to pretend they were on their honeymoon, being photographed posing around a swish heated swimming pool drinking champagne.

For model Lomi the only problem was the Great British weather, but luckily this didn’t stop her enjoying it. “In spite of the cold and being in swimwear it was real fun,” she told Models Direct.

For Marcus the best bits of the assignment were the location, the role and, of course, being served champagne by the pool! “The assignment was great, good people to work with and in a lovely location,” Marcus informed us here at Models Direct. “It was good being a model. I was made to feel very welcome and relaxed, and at the same time professional.”

A Great Assignment Modelling for the NHS

Four of our models, Daniel, Nadeem, Balbinder and Hannah, were chosen to star in a photoshoot for the South Essex NHS Partnership Trust.

The trust needed photos to be featured in an NHS brochure to be used internally. The photoshoot took place in a modern secure forensic prison (there were no patients at the time). Each of them posed around the hospital acting as patients and nurses, showing the features of the unit.

All of the models enjoyed the assignment and getting to know each other. Here are some comments from the models.

“I totally enjoyed the experience as it was a completely relaxed environment,” Hannah told us. “I felt important and able to offer support.”

“I feel very happy with the work I have just done and the people I was working with,” Daniel informed us. “This was my first assignment as a model and I found it exciting and I am looking forward to the next one.”

What tips would Daniel give to other new models? “Be yourself, have fun and listen to direction.” Here at Models Direct we think that’s some very good advice!

Repeat Assignments for Models Direct's Gary

One of our models, Gary, impressed client Design Entity so much that he was invited back twice more after his first assignment with them.

Design Entity had been looking for models for Masterfix London, which offers plumbing, heating and electrical services to name just a few. The pictures have been used for publicity material and the company’s website.

Each assignment involved Gary, along with a couple of other Models Direct models, dressing up in jeans, t-shirts and work boots and posing with various tools and props.

Gary has enjoyed all his assignments with Design Entity, especially meeting the clients again. “I feel good and would like to do it again. It was only for an hour but I felt at ease and enjoyed it,” Gary told us after his most recent assignment.

A Good Night's Entertainment for Models Direct

Two models, Emma and Tatyana, were selected to go for a casting with the writer and director of stage production Girls Night and were chosen above the other models to play the roles.

The whole process was really quick and just two days after impressing the production team, the two models were taking part in a photoshoot to provide images for publicity material.

The two models had to take on very different personas. Emma played an outrageous extrovert while Tatyana was more reserved. They were both perfect for the roles!

“I felt perfectly comfortable and I’m happy with the experience,” Tatyana told one Models Direct coordinator. “I really enjoyed it and would love to do it again.”

“It felt really good and was enjoyable and fun,” Emma agreed. “The client was friendly and very easy to work with.”

Neli Spent a Day Modelling for Fujifilm

Models Direct recently found a model for One Bite Communications, a marketing consultancy based in Hampshire, who were working on a new advertisement for Fujifilm. They had already come up with the storyboard, now all they needed was a model. One of our coordinators sent over a selection of models and it was Neli who was chosen.

For the assignment, Neli spent the day in Reading, Berkshire, being filmed for several sequences that show of the versatility of the client’s cameras.

Neli told us the assignment was great and said it felt fantastic being a model for the day. She also said the best thing about it was gaining some modelling experience and that it’s worth taking the risk.

Have You Ever Considered Promotional Modelling?

Are you lively, bubbly and outgoing? If so, have you ever thought of promotional modelling?

Two Models Direct models, Alena and Hannah, proved to be perfect for this type of modelling in a recent assignment at the Service Managemment Expo 2009. The girls were helping to promote a new design from Destiny PLC, drawing customers to the stall, handing out leaflets and answering the public’s questions.

Andy from Destiny PLC was really pleased with their performance. “The assignment went extremely well,” he informed us. “Both girls were extremely punctual and had great can-do attitudes.”

The models also offered their feedback on the assignment. “I feel very happy about the assignment,” Alena told Models Direct. “It was an enjoyable two days with great people to work with. It always feels great and exciting to be a model and makes a nice change from everyday life!”

An 'Ideal' Assignment for Model Reney

To be a fitting model you need to have the exact measurements a client requires so if you’ve got a good body it can be great area of modelling to get into. Fitting models are used to showcase collections to potential buyers when a clothes hanger just wouldn’t do the outfit justice.

Recently, one of our male models Reney did some fitting modelling for Ideal Europe, a shirt making company in Watford, Hertfordshire. It was something he found to be new and exciting. He was asked to model lots of different outfits and describe the fit to those at Ideal Europe as well as have photographs taken for in-house use.

“The assignment went extremely smoothly as all staff involved were extremely friendly which made me feel at ease,” Reney told one of our model coordinators. “It felt exciting, like starting a new career.”

He also offered some words of advice for other potential models, “it’s not as easy as everyone thinks!”

Caroline for Carolyn: A Great Plus-size Fashion Shoot for Models Direct

Last year a new designer launched herself into the plus-size fashion market, Carolyn. Models Direct were lucky enough to provide her with a model.

Carolyn de la Drapiere provides luxurious fashion alternatives from the high street for women sized 12-26. You can find the collection on the website here. The company even makes bespoke pieces – perfect if you want something completely original!

Carolyn came to Models Direct when she needed a plus-size model to take part in a photoshoot to provide images for the website. The model chosen was Caroline, who described the shoot as “interesting and different. Exciting and challenging.”

Here at Models Direct, we like this quote from Carolyn at her launch…

“I was amazed how many slim people came and congratulated me on how gorgeous and sexy the models looked. It was if they were surprised that curvy women could look so great. One woman said they looked simply luscious and completely edible.”
