Our model Akim was very excited to be selected for a fashion shoot in Middlesbrough – it was his first assignment with Models Direct and the brief he was given by the assignments team sounded right up his street!
The fashion shoot went really well, great feedback from the client and the Models Direct team were so proud of Akim!
Check out the model feedback and final video!
” This was my first experience out doing a shoot and I thought it was great, met a few new people which i was a bit nervous at first but after about 30 mins I settled in quite well. The meet and greet I had at earlier date was really good followed by the video shoot at the end of the month where I was placed in a urban part of the city and this is where it gets superb just being out there doing your own thing and I thoroughly enjoyed, can’t wait to get out there again – Thanks Models Direct”
With the competitiveness of modelling world today many disabled models may be overlooked but at Models Direct, our policy is to offer all our models the same opportunities whether disabled or able bodied.
In addition to the everyday modelling assignments which are open to all disabled models, we have clients who want models to advertise disabled promotions or to sell specific disabled products. Although, as in the world of sport which has embraced disabled people for many years now, within the fashion and modelling industry we are learning that whatever disability you have there is a need to be inclusive when it comes to disabled models and not just to advertise wheelchairs!
Both male and female disabled models are welcome and whatever your disability, age or shape, whether you are in a wheelchair or an amputee, contact us now and have a chat about disabled modelling opportunities at Models Direct Model Agency.
Extra’s are used every day in the commercial modelling world, so often we are not always aware of it!
Models work as extra’s in films, TV programs, commercials and videos all the time and our model Ingrid was selected by a very well known, high street tech brand to star as an extra in their latest commercial – what an opportunity!!
The Models Direct team were super excited for our models Susan and Adrian who were selected to star in a promotional video for Harwich Council – what an exciting project!
The assignments team at Models Direct liaised with the production team at Joli Studios and briefed Susan and Adrian accordingly so they knew exactly what to expect on an exciting day of filming.
The video shoot was a great success, here is what Adrian and Susan had to say about the day:
The team here at Models Direct love love love the feedback we receive form our models when they have finished an assignment – it’s so great to hear how the assignment went and see the genuine excitement and enthusiasm in our models faces when they are buzzing from being involved in such an exciting and fun opportunity!
Modelling is incredibly competitive, but there is a big demand for talent in the industry for all types of assignments. We speak to clients everyday looking for extras for a commercial they are shooting, fashion models for a catalogue or look-book shoot, voice overs, and of course actors to being doubles or securing the staring role – we never know what the enquiry will be from one call to the next, the life of a booking agent is stressful and incredibly exciting!
