Mature Model Enjoys a Day in the Park

Models Direct first worked with client David from DB Photography back in 2009. In April the photographer returned, even selecting the same model he had worked with previously!

Fifty-five year old Ericka was requested by the client to take part in another photoshoot, this time on location in Eaton Park, not far away from the Models Direct office! We asked Ericka how she felt about her second assignment with DB Photography.

“Really enjoyed this assignment,” Ericka informed one Models Direct coordinator. “Had modelled for David before so it was good to see him again. He’s a real professional and put me at ease. He took pictures of me with various things such as a phone, camera etc. Hope I get more work!”

Models Direct's Ruth and Jayden Beat Competition to Become Pampers Baby Models

Last month Models Direct sent eight baby models out on a casting to see if they could become models for famous brand Pampers.

The casting agent was looking for tanned and dark-skinned babies aged 6-14 months. Baby models Alissia, Ousmane, Firdous, Ruth, Jayden, Jack, Oduware, Armani and Renell were selected from their profile photos to attend the casting. They each spent around ten minutes with the casting director so she could find out more about their personalities.

Models Direct were really happy when they found out Jayden and Ruth had been selected for the photo shoot. Both of the babies were booked for five hours for the photo shoot, in which they would be photographed sleeping – which could have proved difficult!

The assignment went well and we can’t wait to see the final pictures. Meanwhile, here’s some feedback from Ruth’s mum Denise.

“The day went well and the client was very patient and accommodating,” Denise informed Models Direct. “It was a lovely calm atmosphere, and although Ruth cannot speak for herself, I can say that she felt very relaxed. The best thing about the day was seeing it all come together and realising how much hard work goes into these shoots.”

Emma Poses for Local Photographer!

Earlier this month Models Direct model Emma enjoyed her first photo shoot. The assignment was with DB Photography.

The photography company was looking for a professional looking woman in her mid thirties who would be suitable for a number of business shots. The assignment took place at the Henderson Business Centre in Norwich.

Models Direct asked Emma how she felt about the assignment.

“I really enjoyed my first shoot, the client was very friendly and nice and made me feel at ease,” Emma explained. “I was asked to do a ‘tired at work’ and ‘healthy eating’ shoot which I enjoyed, especially as I got to eat it! I did find the stressed look quite hard and am intrigued as to how they look.”

Testing Equipment with Models Direct

So far, client Activity Domain has completed two assignments with Models Direct models, with another one booked to take place soon.

The company has been testing various lighting equipment and accessories to provide feedback and examples to supplement training material for clients. The two assignments so far have gone really well. We asked the models, Wei and Charlene, for their feedback.

“It was really good,” Charlene told Models Direct. “I was nervous at the time but the photographer made me feel at ease. I really enjoyed every minute of it and would love to do it again.”

Models Direct are really pleased that the assignments went well and hope the next will be just as successful!

After being so happy with Models Direct models first time around, furniture company Natuzzi Services Ltd returned to us for another weekend of promotional assignments.

Natuzzi needed a number of models to work in their shops across the UK, meeting and greeting customers. Again the models involved were pleased with how their assignments went, despite some admitting that it was not the type of work they were expecting.

Models Direct asked the models for their feedback on how the assignments went. Ubed and Rachael were both working in the Croydon store.

“It felt really good doing promotional work for a high-end company and also representing Models Direct in a professional manner,” model Ubed reported to Models Direct. “Best thing I would say was being able to work in a great atmosphere and interacting with the customers.”

Rachael was also enthusiastic about the assignment.

“We both had to meet and greet customers into the store, check whether they needed any sales help and then offer them refreshments,” she explained. “The team at Natuzzi are so friendly and lovely, they make the day fly by. I hope to see the staff again in the future!
