Naomi, Model fee: £130.00, Ref:1082

Again, I loved working with Medikidz for the day at St Josephs Primary School. The same core team were brilliant to work with and I was confident with the drill - which was talking about eye health and entertaining the children with fun activities and competitions. I really love the idea behind the company and the activities - I would be happy do it again.

My job involved dressing up as 'Skindy' - along with a great team of other interesting characters/superheroes, and going to a children's primary school where we quizzed, helped and engaged with the children about eye health and looking after the body in general (whilst making it upbeat and fun). I really love speaking to the children individually about their special super hero glasses during the competition and getting them to engage with the thought process about eye health.

I would recommend this job to anyone who wants to work with children or who likes sparking imagination amongst youngsters, as well as those who have an interest in character entrainment and education. It's activities like this one that make being with Models Direct such a lovely experience.

I absolutely LOVE Medikidz - such a great way to engage the children and get them involved and interested with learning about the human body, and super heroes!  It was brilliant working with the team and I was comfortable and confident with the drill. I would love to do it again. For the activity we had to all be dressed up and ready as super heroes and address groups of primary school children and inform them with the importance of eyes, eye health etc. We worked alongside a woman from Vision Express and got the children involved with drawing super hero glasses and reading out comic strips with us. I would recommend this experience to anyone else trying to get involved with acting/working with children, as the job in itself is rewarding and you learn a lot on assignment, such as how to deal with certain situations. I think if you were trying to pursue a career in this industry you just need the right drive and enthusiasm as well as hard work and smiles. Models Direct have offered me a variety of clients to work with and for that reason and many other, they are a great agency to be a part of.

Victoria, Model fee: £100.00, Ref:BV640118

I was very nervous beforehand as I have never done anything like this before, however after completing the assignment I felt much more confident and it is something I would like to do again.

We were required by Medikidz to dress up as superhero characters and introduced ourselves to the children in assembly. We talked about the eye and asked them any questions in which an optometrist answered their questions. We then went to the Year 3 class and had them make their own superhero masks and write down three super powers. We made it into a competition and had some photos taken with the children. I am training to become a primary school teacher so found it extra supportive, and this experience will give me more confidence to stand in front of the school assembly in my future.

The most enjoyable part of the day for me was working alongside the children in the classroom.

I would definitely recommend signing up with Models Direct and undergoing assignments like this - it was a very rewarding job, giving the children more knowledge in a fun way.

Despite this being my third assignment with Models Direct there was still the slightly nervous feeling of 'what is it going to be like?', 'will I be the sort of person they were looking for?' - but all doubts proved unfounded.  The team were delightful to work with - relaxed and happy which led to a wonderful fun day.  The assignment involved being photographed driving mobility vehicles after some tuition from the shop staff, and the photographer was brilliant with direction and encouragement. His kind words added to my confidence as the day went on, and I learned so much about being in front of a camera.  It is not as nerve racking as you may think - do give it a try.  One thing I would say take any assignment that comes along - simply for the different experiences - be prepared to travel even if it means that much of your fee disappears in travelling expenses and don't forget that the team at Models Direct are always there to support you.

Rebecca, Model fee: £130.00, Ref:R606350

I really enjoyed the family assignment I took part in for Conway County Council.  We went to two locations - a castle and an ancient church.  The shoot involved myself, two children and also a male model...  It was really nice working with the kids, who took direction extremely well!  This was my first shoot with Models Direct and I had a great experience.

Naomi, Model fee: £100.00, Ref:BH550587

Working with MediKidz was such a brilliant experience that I would recommend to anyone looking to work with children creatively!  With a really strong team, the day was a great success and I found that the children were very much engaged in the activities. The best parts of the day were jumping into assembly and hearing the buzz of excitement from the early learning years and working on the competition for the children's superpower glasses. It certainly boosted my confidence and the experience was very rewarding. MediKidz have a very professional team that I got along well with, and I would happily work for again in the future. I am grateful to Models Direct for offering the work and would recommend joining this agency to anyone who is looking to advertise their skills on a higher platform of networking. It really was very successful and Im grateful to Rachel, our team leader, for choosing me to be one of the MediKidz Super heroes! Thanks!

Charlotte, Model fee: £120.00, Ref:BM680023

My assignment involved creating a speed dating online advertisement video shoot for an e-cigarette brand.  I enjoyed doing something creative for the day away from my full time job, so it was great to do something different and I found myself gaining confidence infront of the camera throughout the day.  I found my assignment enjoyable and I look forward to doing more modelling assignments with Models Direct.  Thanks again!

Jody, Model fee: £230.00, Ref:P559559

I absolutely loved my first assignment through Models Direct -  I got to be a superhero for the day!  It really was amazing, I especially loved it when myself and the other superheroes made our first appearance to the kids - they were amazed and it really made their day. We took part in the activities with the kids, for example acting from the 'Medikidz' comic book, letting the children have a chance at being superheroes themselves and helping them create their own superhero glasses.  The job really has helped with my confidence. I joined Models Direct to help me with my modelling career, as this is my lifetime goal and aim. This is just the start to my dreams becoming reality.

saadia, Model fee: £180.00, Ref:K651259

This assignment was very enjoyable - I was not nervous beforehand and I enjoyed meeting the other models who were friendly and interesting.  The most enjoyable part of the day was being photographed whilst engaging in improvised short scenes, requiring interaction with the other models. We were asked to pretend to be a family group engaging in different activities, which would promote the company. I would recommend this experience to others if they are interested in modelling - you need to be confident, flexible, cooperative and sociable.

If anyone is thinking of joining Models Direct, I would advise them to be as proactive as possible on the website, otherwise you could wait months or even years before being called.  I joined Models Direct because they were encouraging and actively work to find me suitable assignments. I would very much like to have more opportunities to model or to act.

Naomi, Model fee: £220.00, Ref:BH550587

Yesterday I took part in an advertising photo shoot for a luxury spirits brand in Central London.  The day in itself was a brilliant success for both myself and the client - I think the team were very pleased with the outcome and were very helpful with directing me and communicating what they wanted from the shoot. I felt confident that the client was satisfied and we had a good laugh.  The most enjoyable part was wearing the beautiful dresses and being able to act naturally in front of the camera. I was asked to do a variety of poses and expressions and I really enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere we worked in.  I would like to say thank you to Protege International and Avalon for having me and to Molly at Models Direct for being so supportive. I would recommend this sort of work to anyone looking to gain professional experience in an artistic career such as modelling. It was the fun, relaxed yet professional atmosphere from yesterday that reminded me why I joined Models Direct in the first place. Thank you guys!

Molly, Model fee: £450.00, Ref:1023

I was very pleased when I received a call from Models Direct last week, offering me 3 days worth of promotional work in my area on behalf of Adonis (a touring male glamour show).  I was not nervous beforehand as I have a plenty of experience in promotional work, but I was definitely curious as to how the general public would react to this type of event.

Myself and a male model from Models Direct were required to put up a large amount of Adonis posters in shop windows and on the streets of Great Yarmouth (ahead of their show in the area), as well as handing out flyers to female locals and tourists.  We enthusiastically engaged with as many people as possible about the event, with a view to get them to purchase tickets.

I thoroughly enjoyed the assignment - particularly getting into character as somebody who is passionate about male cabaret shows, and seeing women's reactions to the raunchy flyers!

I would recommend promotional work to anyone looking to earn some good money on the side whilst having fun - particularly to those who enjoy social interaction, or are looking to develop those skills.

Signing up with Models Direct is a decision I will never regret. Their clients are some of the biggest, well known and reputable company's in the UK - and it wouldn't be possible to work alongside them without the help and exposure TM offer to their models.  From dealing with the registrations department right up to my booking agent, I have always been satisfied with the high standard of customer service. I can't thank Models Direct enough for their friendly yet professional approach in sourcing me fun and well paid modelling assignments.  Many more to come I hope!

Kate, Model fee: £180.00, Ref:BQ635073

This was my first assignment as a model for Models Direct, and I was a little nervous beforehand, particularly when I heard it was going to be videos as well as stills photography.  My nerves went away as soon as I met the client and the other models though - everyone was so friendly and welcoming, and we had brilliant fun throughout the two days of photo shoots.

My favourite part of the assignment was getting to know the other models and exploring the holiday park.  We had pictures taken enjoying drinks on the balcony and food in the bar, and the had a sunset dip in the pool and paddle in the sea.  The next day we met our 'children' for the day, and rode bikes, pretended to have barbeques, and played on the beach - it was like being on holiday!

I would definitely recommend the experience to others, as I met such interesting people and had a great time, while getting paid to do so!  It's very rewarding to be part of something like this, and I can't wait to see the video and images.  Thanks Models Direct!

Charlene, Model fee: £180.00, Ref:BQ610049

I was booked to star in a video for Medmerry Park, a holiday park company based near Chichester, West Sussex. I was filmed going over a bridge in my wheelchair at the holiday park to a bungalow, where I was greeted by two other models and their model children and we discussed our 'holiday' together.  The next scene I was filmed going up a ramp into one of the bungalows. This was the first time I had been filmed, therefore I have learned a new skill and this has given me more confidence. I enjoyed the experience and would recommend signing up to Models Direct to other aspiring models.

Mansoureh, Model fee: £200.00, Ref:BC588301

My assignment on Monday afternoon was pleasing - it was a photo shoot in a lovely house with nice decoration inside and a great view.  I was working with other models, who were very friendly.  Myself and the other models had a friendly chat during the photo shoot, while we were waiting to be photographed. The assignment was organised by Feel Agency and I found them to be very kind and helpful.  The photographer was so funny and did his best to keep the environment warm and friendly. Overall, I had great time - I really enjoyed the assignment and made new friends. Thank you Models Direct.

Samantha, Model fee: £200.00, Ref:A619694

I thoroughly enjoyed my day and felt so comfortable modelling for the first time on a paid shoot.  I was very nervous beforehand but the team made me feel so welcome and comfortable.  It's hard to pick a specific moment as a highlight because I immensely enjoyed the whole day, but it would probably the part when I worked with horses (although this was a challenge!). Throughout the day I learnt how to be more comfortable in front of the camera.  I would recommend this experience because it's something really different, exciting but challenging. I signed up with Models Direct because of their excellent reputation - and they have been really helpful, especially when it comes to looking for jobs. My ambition is to get a lot more work and to keep on having as much fun on the job as possible.

Michèle, Model fee: £120.00, Ref:BY625724

I had a great time on my assignment with Level39, a new office space provider company.  I have done still photography many times before so I wasn't nervous and I really enjoyed myself.  I had to pose as a business woman in a private club/lounge - myself and the other models were photographed pretending to be in meetings, having lunch/dinner and generally interacting.  The location in Canary Wharf was stunning and all the people on set were a pleasure to work with. 

I would definitely recommend such assignments to others, as it is always fun and enjoyable and such easy money, which is always appreciated!  The more one works, the more experienced and relaxed one is and the better it gets.  It is crucial to join an agency if you are interested in this industry - and I would highly recommend Talent Management.  I am hoping that my first assignment with Models Direct will lead to many more exciting opportunities.

Kat, Model fee: £200.00, Ref:N658009

I would like to thank Models Direct for selecting me for this photo shoot.  It was nice meeting Lee, the photographer - I really enjoyed working with him.  The photo shoot itself was short but it was a great experience for me and it was definitely worth travelling for!  I hope Models Direct have further suitable jobs for me in the near future as I would love to do more!  Thank you for the opportunity, Kat.

Wallis, Model fee: £120.00, Ref:BT585987

Being a model for the day was amazing - it is my dream job and I had a great experience.  I was very nervous before hand but as soon as I arrived at the location (a prestigious Chelsea hair salon) they made me very relaxed and at ease. Before I got started, the salon manager briefed me on what they were planning on doing to my hair and what type of look they were going for.   They also explained again about the L'oreal Colour Trophy Awards competition in more detail and certain dates that I would be needed if their submission was successful. The day started with my hair being cut and coloured while the make up artist gave me a facial and did my make up. I was brought lunch which was lovely and then afterwards changed into my clothes for the shoot.  It was great fun having my hair and make up done and the photo shoot at the end was the absolute highlight - we played around with lighting and my posing to get effective photos.  I gained a lot of confidence on the day as the team believed in me from start to finish and were very thankful for my efforts.

I would definitely recommend experiences such as this to others - it is a great way to expand your portfolio, build your confidence, make new friends and have a fun time!  If people are interested in having a career in this industry, then applying to an agency is a brilliant idea as you can view lists of available jobs and you will be assigned to a member of staff who will be there to help you along every step along the way. I decided to join Models Direct as my ambition in life is to become a successful model, dancer, singer and actress - if I didn't apply, then I would of never gone on this assignment and I am now one step closer towards achieving my dreams.

Patricia, Model fee: £150.00, Ref:BP590063

What a wonderful day I had on my modelling assignment for LINK!  I set off by rail to London early - there were not many people about in the city at that time on a Sunday morning.  It was perfect weather - thank goodness - as myself and my model partner were to be photographed at an ATM in the street outside a bank!.  This was for publicity to encourage older people to use cash machines safely and with confidence - showing how to cover the numbers when entering as the pin is entered and safely retrieve the card and cash.  On arrival I met up with my 'partner' for the day and the photographer and his assistant.  From the word go we all got on famously - and yes, I learned a lot from the shoot - particularly the photographer who was easy to work with and a brilliant director.  The only thing I was slightly anxious about prior to the shoot was whether I had chosen the right clothes to give the appearance of an over 70 year old bank client, however Models Direct advised me on previous assignments to take spare clothing and accessories as props, and as it happened we did a change of jackets half way through to give some variation. 

Anyone thinking of doing this sort of work - I would say 'give it a go'!  You do have reservations, but the feeling of satisfaction afterwards is great - and you do have fun!  Models Direct give wonderful support, clear instructions of the assignment and emergency contact numbers just in case things go wrong - I highly recommend them!  All you have to do is check the website regularly for possible jobs, make sure your portfolio is up to date and wait for your opportunity to arrive!

My assignment on Saturday afternoon was a memorable experience and I really enjoyed myself.  All of the models were nice, kind and friendly - we had the chance to talk and making new friends during the photo shoot.  I also found the photographer and the client to be very polite and helpful.  This experience has encouraged to continue with modelling by attending further photo shoots.  All in all an amazing experience - thank you Models Direct!

Lauren, Model fee: £100.00, Ref:BV640338

Having already spoken to the client the night before the shoot, I felt very much at ease as I knew what was expected from me.  I had so much fun modelling the client's fashion designs which consisted of a gorgeous silk gown, and some beautiful scarfs and handbags. It was so nice to hear everyone involved were really pleased with the outcome and I'm looking forward to seeing the final images, and hopefully soon the designers clothes out in the shops!  Thank you Models Direct.

Nicola, Model fee: £360.00, Ref:A660994

I was nervous prior to my shoot for Latham Trust as I wanted to do a good job, but as we all going I became less and less nervous and there were lots of laughs.  The assignment involved posing as a family (I played the part of the granny) on holiday in a caravan park.  It was lovely as I suddenly had a new family with 2 adorable little grandchildren.  The most enjoyable part of the assignment for me was meeting new people - it felt great to do so and learning about each other was a lot of fun. I learned that being professional in everything I do i.e. being on time, wearing the right clothes, presenting myself well etc makes the client happy - it is a great feeling knowing that you have worked to the best of your ability.  I would recommend similar experiences to others as it's a great confidence boost, especially for the more mature model.  My advice to others thinking of pursuing work in this industry would be to be yourself, prepare for the assignment and be ready to work hard and smile.  Thank you Models Direct!

Angela, Model fee: £360.00, Ref:R677214

I really enjoyed taking part in the photo shoot for Latham Trust over the past couple of days.  I was booked to play the part of a mother with her family on holiday at a caravan park. I got to meet some really friendly people and gained experience in modelling. I was a little nervous about it at first, wondering if I had the right clothes and look they wanted but it was all very relaxed on arrival and I soon felt welcome.  I would recommend joining Models Direct as you will be included in searches sent to potential employers and the clients can end up choosing you, which feels nice!  I also trust that the assignments will be well managed and safer by going through the agency.

Natasha, Model fee: £180.00, Ref:P533354

Disabled model - photo shoot for Motability Operations

I was really nervous before the photo shoot started, but once I got there and met everyone at the place I felt much more at ease. I had fun getting to know the rest of the models, and doing the photo shoot. I got a lot more confident as the shoot went on - posing for brochures and the online site helped me learn skills on posing in different ways and was lots of fun.


My advice to anyone who is thinking of joining or has joined with Models Direct modelling agency, is to stay positive and keep things light and fun. Patience is a virtue - always take your time and don't rush things, when it happens it happens and you have to grab it with both hands like I did - I couldn't be happier. I've achieved a real goal of mine by doing this and getting a modelling assignment, and hopefully I will have more to come…

I signed up with Models Direct after I came across the website. As I was reading it out my mum said 'Sign up for it Natasha' as it sounded trustworthy, so we signed up and waited for a call. It was after the call that we went for it, as they assured me they would find me something. Other agencies said they would but they wanted a huge amount of fees – 
Models Direct didn't…


I'm grateful to Models Direct for giving me an amazing experience on the photo shoot and for the help with finding me something! My ambition is to become a well known model, maybe in catalogues or for make up / hair modelling. I hope to have more modelling assignments coming my way soon! Thank you, Natasha.
