Models Direct: A Day Out in London

Back in June, four lucky child models were chosen to take part in a photo shoot at the Natural History Museum in London for children’s clothing company Vintage Kit.

After the museum it was on to Hyde Park for more photos. Although it was a long day for the young models, their parents gave us some positive feedback.

“Eniz had a great day on the Vintage Kit photo shoot,” her dad Besh commented. “The contact on the day was very understanding and very patient with the young children on the assignment…”

“I haven’t had that much fun for a long time,” says Model Adrian

Modelling morris-dancing outfits may not sound very glamorous, but it proved to be a great day for 49-year-old Adrian. He was involved in a photo shoot to compare the old costumes with the more modern outfits that have just been introduced. Here’s what Adrian had to say about the assignment.

“I haven’t had that much fun for a long time,” Adrian explained enthusiastically. “The shoot was relaxed, professional and fun. I trust I got on OK with the photographer and the person for whom he was working. I hope I did well and produced the goods for the client.”

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.”

Another Animal Assignment with Refinery Photography

Models Direct have just completed their third pet modelling assignment with Manchester company Refinery Photography. Again they were looking for animals to model products in the Kleeneze brochure.

Angel the dog and Dippy the cat were chosen for the photoshoot. Angel’s owner Nicola gave us an account of the day.

“We really enjoyed taking Angel today,” Nicola told Models Direct in her feedback. “The people were really nice to both us and Angel, she was a good girl and the seemed to be happy with her. She had three lots of pictures taken for the Kleeneze brochure, one for a safety gate, one in a car and one with a flashing collar light. Thank you for the assignment and we hope you will use Angel again in the near future.”

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.

Models Direct Models Get a 3D Makeover!

Models Direct were excited to hear about some rather unusual assignments last month. Almost twenty male and female models were chosen by client Infinite Realities, who specialise in creating digital 3D characters.

Each of the models posed while photographs were taken of them pulling different facial expressions. They could then watch as they were transformed into computer-generated characters such as those seen in films. We had great feedback from all of the models and Lee, founder of Infinite Realities.

Here’s just one model’s response…

“It was great, I really enjoyed it,” Model Damian told Models Direct. “It was amazing. The best thing about the assignment was the photographer was really professional and was very helpful. I was asked to sit and make faces as he took photos of me which would then be turned into 3D. It was really great and I enjoyed it.”

Here are some photos of our models Damian and Amy, showing the work that Infinite Realities do.
