Warning: This Picture May Make You Hungry!

In a recent assignment, 20-year-old Ed was sent out on a photographic assignment for a repeat client of Models Direct, Torch B2B. Ed was photographed eating a sandwich as part of an advertising campaign. Here’s what he told us about the assignment.

“It was really good fun working with a team of people on the same project,” Ed explained. “It was nice to see that the chosen picture was suitable for their needs. The professionalism of the photographer was encouraging in helping me perform to their expectations. The project was well explained and I knew what was wanted.”

Two Very Different Assignments with Models Direct…

Just to show how varied the assignments that Models Direct receive are here are just two of the assignments that are taking place this week.

Firstly, we have a British Bulldog called Charlie appearing on the channel five ‘Live From Studio Five’ tomorrow. He will be asked to pull out a bone from a dog bowl which will have a World Cup match score prediction on it. We wonder if it’ll be right!

Secondly, one of our models, Peter, is leaving rainy England and flying out to sunny Portugal today. This is a role play assignment and he will be acting as a patient at a medical conference. It’s alright for some!

Models John and Carlos Cruise the Catwalk

Two of our male models, John and Carlos, took part in a fashion event in the stylish Cruise store in Aberdeen that stocks designer brands including Prada, Gucci and Jimmy Choo.

John and Carlos both enjoyed strutting their way through the spectators on this catwalk assignment. Models Direct asked them how the evening went.

“The experience was great fun,” John informed Models Direct. “It was the first time I had done anything like it. Getting to do something completely different from normal was appreciated.”

A Lovely Message of Thanks from Model Nick

We received a lovely email from one of our models, Nick, who took part in an assignment for Hampshire County Council yesterday, thanking Models Direct for our hard work. He also took to his own blog to make this comment about our agency…

“Models Direct have been excellent at providing suitable roles in photographic and video assignments. My agent is very friendly and great with communication. I was paid the day after the shoot, which is unheard of with other agencies. They are highly recommended.”

Thank you for your wonderful comments!

More Assignments with Natuzzi

After being so happy with Models Direct models first time around, furniture company Natuzzi Services Ltd returned to us for another weekend of promotional assignments.

Natuzzi needed a number of models to work in their shops across the UK, meeting and greeting customers. Again the models involved were pleased with how their assignments went, despite some admitting that it was not the type of work they were expecting.

Models Direct asked the models for their feedback on how the assignments went. Ubed and Rachael were both working in the Croydon store.

Ubed

“It felt really good doing promotional work for a high-end company and also representing Models Direct in a professional manner,” model Ubed reported to Models Direct. “Best thing I would say was being able to work in a great atmosphere and interacting with the customers.”

Rachael

Rachael was also enthusiastic about the assignment.

“We both had to meet and greet customers into the store, check whether they needed any sales help and then offer them refreshments,” she explained. “The team at Natuzzi are so friendly and lovely, they make the day fly by. I hope to see the staff again in the future!”

Promotional Modelling with Models Direct for Natuzzi Furniture

When luxury furniture company Natuzzi needed some models to help meet and greet at some of their stores, they turned to Models Direct!

Natuzzi needed friendly models for three locations in Croydon, Manchester and London to welcome customers to the stores. Raymond, Katie, Shelene, Andrew and Rachael were the models chosen, and although it was an unusual modelling assignment in many ways, they still all enjoyed it.

“I had a very relaxed and fun day working for a luxury Italian furniture store,” Katie, who was working at the Finchley Road shop in London. “The staff were all really friendly, as was the other model I was working for. My job was to see if the customers were happy and I learnt how to use a coffee machine – always handy!”

Models Direct Models Spend a Day at the Pictures!

It’s always nice when lots of different models get to work with each other. This was the case for a recent assignment with Emperor Design, for which our coordinators had to find twelve models, including children, teenagers and adults.

Emperor Design was working with Models Direct on behalf of Cineworld cinemas, who required models for all of their publicity material. The assignment involved the models being photographed around one of the cinemas in Aberdeen.

This was perfect for five-year-old Ellie, as her mum explains…

“Marc the organiser and Patric the photographer were really great. They made Ellie feel so at ease that she needed little or no direction, she just enjoyed herself.”

“Ellie was asked to sit in the cinema and watch the big screen while having her photo taken. She also had her picture taken while choosing pick and mix sweets, popcorn and ice cream, this was a little girl’s dream come true as she was allowed to eat it all!”

We have to say, it sounds pretty fun to us too! Below are a few pictures of the models who worked on the assignment.
