An ‘Ideal’ Assignment for Model Reney

To be a fitting model you need to have the exact measurements a client requires so if you’ve got a good body it can be great area of modelling to get into. Fitting models are used to showcase collections to potential buyers when a clothes hanger just wouldn’t do the outfit justice.

Recently, one of our male models Reney did some fitting modelling for Ideal Europe, a shirt making company in Watford, Hertfordshire. It was something he found to be new and exciting. He was asked to model lots of different outfits and describe the fit to those at Ideal Europe as well as have photographs taken for in-house use.

“The assignment went extremely smoothly as all staff involved were extremely friendly which made me feel at ease,” Reney told one Models Direct coordinator. “It felt exciting, like starting a new career.” He also offered some words of advice for other potential models, “it’s not as easy as everyone thinks!”

Caroline for Carolyn: A Great Plus-size Fashion Shoot for Models Direct

Last year a new designer launched herself into the plus-size fashion market, Carolyn. Models Direct were lucky enough to provide her with a model.

Carolyn de la Drapiere provides luxurious fashion alternatives from the high street for women sized 12-26. You can find the collection on the website here. The company even makes bespoke pieces – perfect if you want something completely original!

Carolyn came to Models Direct when she needed a plus-size model to take part in a photoshoot in west London to provide images for the website. The model chosen was Caroline, who described the shoot as “interesting and different. Exciting and challenging.”

Here at Models Direct, we like this quote from Carolyn at her launch…

“I was amazed how many slim people came and congratulated me on how gorgeous and sexy the models looked. It was if they were surprised that curvy women could look so great. One woman said they looked simply luscious and completely edible.”

Jamie Spent the Day Modelling Stylish Sportswear

SubSeventy is a golf clothing company that aims to ‘funk up your game’. When they needed a man to model clothes on the website, they came to us. They wanted someone aged twenty-five or over, who was over 6ft and fit and healthy looking.

Jamie was the man chosen to model the stylish sportswear and the photos are featured on the website. This was his first assignment with Models Direct since signing up in June.

He gave us some feedback on how the photoshoot went.
“It went very smoothly and ran on time, the whole experience was very professional,” Jamie informed us. “It was good fun and I was treated well by the photographer.” He said the best thing about the assignment was being paid to have fun.

Creating a Home Sweet Home for Brother Sister Modelling Duo

Cross Key Homes needed four models to look like a family and so it was perfect when they found brother-sister modelling duo Gabrielle and Perry. Along with Victoria and Vaughan playing mum and dad, they all enjoyed and afternoon photoshoot.

The housing association had originally tried using residents for the photoshoot, which was to promote a housing scheme, but they turned to Models Direct when they didn’t achieve the high standard they were looking for.

This was the siblings’ first taste of modelling and they both enjoyed the assignment, which involved having a pillow fight and playing around the house and garden.

Gabrielle and Perry’s dad, who went along to the photoshoot, told us that the children had lots of fun and that they both thought the experience was fantastic.

Jacky and Kevin Had a Lovely Day Modelling in Cambridge!

Mature models Jacky and Kevin spent the day modelling around Cambridge for This is Deep design company on behalf of their client, Aviva.

It took a while for Gill and Malcolm from This is Deep to find the perfect models but they eventually found the perfect models. Jacky, Kevin and another model Lorraine spent a day being photographed in restaurants, walking by the river and punting to produce images for future publicity materials.

The three models and the team all got on well and all enjoyed the assignment.

“The assignment was fantastic, fellow models were lovely company and conversation flowed easily,” Jacky reported back to us. “The photographers were very easy to work for and were appreciative.”

She did have one small complaint though. There was a lot of walking involved and she wished she had worn some more appropriate shoes!

We also asked her what she would say to other older people who are considering taking up modelling in the spare time.

“If they were at all suitable and keen I would encourage them to apply to agencies for selection,” Jacky said. “I learned today that agencies need a wide selection of types and ages, and the models I met today had enjoyed all their assignments. Unreasonable demands are not placed by clients and certainly today was lovely.”

Models Direct Gets Creative!

Last month Candice from Cyates Photography came to us looking for a male model to take part in a rather unusual assignment. The perfect model had to be slim with great features and someone who wouldn’t mind being covered in body paint!

The photographic assignment was for an art project shoot and it was Models Direct model Glyn who was selected. He told us that body paint was a new area of modelling for him but that it was very good fun.

We also got a great response from Candice. When asked how the assignment went she told us: “Great! The model was right on time and extremely easy to work with. The model had a great positive attitude.”

We haven’t seen the photos yet but if they’re anything like the rest of Cyates Photography’s work they’ll be fantastic! You can have a browse on the website here, our favourites are of boats stranded in the sand.
