The term character model is often used by clients and can cover a multitude of looks or requirements. Models Direct character models and actors are hired to play the computer programmer, the fat guy, the librarian, the freckled mischievous schoolboy or the little old lady in her deck-chair enjoying the sun.
Character actors and models rarely become household names, but this is an extremely lucrative field if you’ve got the right look and can get this across in your photos and on assignment.
Not all modelling jobs are high-fashion cover shots or editorial for the top fashion magazines in the world and print ads for designer clothing.
Sometimes a company may require models to promote a product, a service, a new store, etc at a trade show or event.
So the skill of the modelling agency is to get a general description of what the client wants and then find that person.
Clients might be looking for a suburban mum type, a rugged outdoorsy guy type, a sexy babe type or the average woman in the street look.
Clients may want models with a special skill – roller-skating, tap dancing, foreign language skills or even pole vaulting!
What can you do and who you could be?
Models Direct connect models with business, every day. We are a real modelling agency with real offices and real people working tirelessly to provide our clients with the models they need for their projects. You can find out more about us in the Models Direct video at the bottom of this post but seeing as we are on the edge of 2015, we thought we would write about women and how we can improve our lives. One phrase that appears a lot in every aspect of life is ‘upwardly mobile’. An upwardly mobile woman embodies a multitude of traits. Commercial models command huge respect and glamour and all have one thing in common – they build their look around the future of fashion. They look different, and dress different, because they aim ahead of the status quo. They see through the current trends and create the next ones with vision and foresight. These are incredibly powerful attributes to any woman. Men look for these kind of traits when looking for a partner. The desirable woman is an adventurer. She wants to explore, have days out, educate her self. Why do we insist on sitting under blankets on so many evenings or rainy days when we could be outside discovering something new, and creating a new memory. We don’t remember the individual days spent in the house, they blur into one long depressing picture. To pick yourself up jump on a coach to another city. Do the things you would do if it was in another country, see the cathedral, walk in the park, go for lunch. We don’t do these things in our own towns, so force yourself out of the loop and get moving! For more tips and news from Models Direct, check out this other blog.
Don’t get over obsessed about the way you look. Half the things you think are terrible about yourself are invisible, and the other half are probably on the inside, making you hate the outside! If you feel in a rut getting out of the house will take your mind off it. It really is about creating positive memories with which to withstand the bad days. You don’t put sad photos in a photo album, you don’t want to reinforce and remember them. If you don’t do that, then why curl up under a blanket and feel sorry for yourself? In that action you accept defeat. The man in your life will not appreciate being brought down, but will definitely respect and admire you if you get up and get out. The most interesting people are often those with the most stories, and the most experiences. It’s not hard to be like that and will instantly make you more desirable and attract the right kind of friends. Building intellectual experiences and gaining knowledge is hot to men. The times of the silly giggly girl are definitely gone, thankfully, and we can bring the right kinds of people into our life by showing the world that we know something, that we know what we are talking about. Image models embody this mentality. To find out more about Models Direct, visit our website and check out what modelling jobs are available in real-time.
