Models Direct Model Appears on BBC Show

One of our models, John, recently appeared on BBC’s Crimewatch, but don’t worry, he’s not a criminal! John had a walk-on part in one of the TV show’s crime reconstruction scene. Here’s what he got up to…

“As this was my first assignment I didn’t know what to expect,” John explained. “After brief introductions and a soft drink we were whisked off to a private dining room to film the first few scenes. I knew I had a walk-on part but had no idea we would be ad-libbing as well as eating on camera. Once this was complete we were driven to another location to film the murder scene.”

“The other ‘actors’ were far more experienced than me but were easy to work with. Whilst the fee was modest the experience was invaluable and I hope to do more soon.”

Another Assignment with Repeat Client DB Photography

Models Direct first worked with client David from DB Photography back in 2009. In April the photographer returned, even selecting the same model he had worked with previously!

Fifty-five year old Ericka was requested by the client to take part in another photoshoot, this time on location in Eaton Park, not far away from the Models Direct office! We asked Ericka how she felt about her second assignment with DB Photography.

“Really enjoyed this assignment,” Ericka informed one Models Direct coordinator. “Had modelled for David before so it was good to see him again. He’s a real professional and put me at ease. He took pictures of me with various things such as a phone, camera etc. Hope I get more work!”

Photos of Model George Looking Great as The Slot Father

You may have seen the blogs about some of Models Direct’s recent promotional assignments, and now comes one with a difference! Companies often use young men and women to help meet and greet at trade shows and events, but for this assignment, Cyprus-based company Bet Soft Gaming wanted a different sort of promotional model.

70-year-old George was chosen to play the role of one of their mascots, The Slot Father. It was a three-day assignment helping Bet Soft Gaming at the Gaming Expo at Earls Court.

George has lots of experience modelling, but he’s more used to being in front of a camera. He still had a great time though, working with great clients and meeting the public. As you can see from the pictures he certainly looked the part!

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.”
