Do you have a Model Family?

Working as a modelling family is a mixture of excitement and apprehension. As any mum knows if your going anywhere with your children you want them to be on there best behaviour.

This is no different on a photo shoot, so when your asking 3 of your children to stand up straight, smile, look happy  continuously while taking direction from the photograph as well it can be challenging.

Luckily, we work with Models Direct and have always been so well looked after, from lunches being put on for the children, to overnight accommodation, to letting the children have 15 minutes time out so they can chill, go on there iPad etc.

We have now had 7 assignments and I can’t believe how lucky we are my son says its all down to his fantastic good looks.

When I first signed up to Models Direct I was a little sceptical hearing stories of people paying thousands of pounds for pictures to be done because the agency they had chosen had asked them to do so then signing a 3-year deal and not getting a single job. When I spoke to Molly for the first time from the Models Direct agency she immediately put my mind at easy, she said she only needed photos that we had taken are self’s nice natural photos work the best, so the client can get a real feel for who you are and how you look in front of a camera. I told my children if we were lucky enough to get 1 job we would be extremely lucky.

Here we are several years later and now on our 8th job. We have managed to do so much with our extra money that has come in from our jobs, just little things like being able to spoil the kids a little, to a weekend away for the family to now having our garden landscaped and having a hot tub fitted.

My husband and I are so proud of our children and though its hard days working, keeping up with the photograph and the clients needs . We now would never look back and look forward to the next 7 assignments.

Extras Needed

If you want to brush shoulders with famous actors, spot yourself in a commercial, or amuse friends with anecdotes – How about extras work?

You have probably wondered if the people milling around in the background of a commercial, television program or film are hired actors or real people who just happened to be passing by. Well, in the majority of cases, they are supporting artists, known as extras.

As the film and media business grows into a thriving industry, a supply of professional supporting artists is needed. It is great fun, you get paid, you get fed, and you get to watch the movie stars at work!
