The Winter Sales with Models Direct

Tips for the Winter Sales from Models Direct

Before you leave the house to hit the sales, you should know exactly what you’re looking for and how much you can spend. First of all, figure out how much you’d be happy to spend, and then decide how much you can really take with you. Having a strict budget will stop you from overspending. If you’re the type of person who puts things on credit card habitually and sometimes loses track, take cash with you and leave the cards at home!

To be able to identify the real bargains you’ll need a reference point in terms of prices. We have all seen shops with constant ‘sales’ on, but the items were never, and will never be, the full marked price. Retailers use this tactic to make things seem like even better value so don’t be fooled into making impulse buys before checking prices online.

You can use your phone to search the bar-code or the brand and style online. Doing this means you won’t be duped into thinking you have a real bargain and then going home to see the same item on the net for less! If you’re on the hunt for a new look for a photo shoot, perhaps with an eye to get into fashion modelling, agencies like Models Direct can often give guidance. It’s too easy to get bogged down trying to compare prices between stores and online, so if it starts getting stressful just remember your spending rules and remember what you needed to buy. If you stick to the rules, you won’t find yourself unloading bag after bag in the lounge and wondering what on earth you were thinking! The returns queues are at their longest after sales because too many women fall into this trap. Also remember that you often can’t get a cash refund for discounted items and might end up with a lot of store credit that you don’t really want.

Models Direct Foot Care Tips

Foot Care Tips from Models Direct

Summer may be on its last legs and our sandals may be going into their annual hibernation, but Models Direct know that’s no reason not to keep your feet looking and feeling great. Professionals in the female modelling business are always looking for well-groomed talent so don’t let your feet let you down. Our feet have a quarter of the blood vessels in our bodies. They are one of the most sensitive areas and are easily forgotten about during daily care. Here are a few steps on how to give yourself the best pedicure.

Firstly trim and shape your nails. Remove your old nail polish with a nail polish remover and trim your nails neatly. Make sure you cut straight across and don't cut the corners too much, as this can lead to painful ingrown nails. Use a nail file to give them the desired shape. 

Run a little foot bath in a basin or tub. Fill warm water enough to cover up to your ankles and add some bath salts. You can add a few drops of any essential oil of your choice. Give your feet a nice bathe. Also add a few smooth pebbles to the water. These will provide a gentle massage as you place your feet on them. Soak your feet and relax. 

You're almost ready for your next modelling casting. Now you have to exfoliate. Rub some cuticle cream on the base of each toe nail. Leave it for a few minutes. In the meanwhile, use a foot scrub or exfoliating stone and remove all the dry and dead skin cells. Be firm but do not scrape too hard. Next, wipe off the cuticle cream and push back the cuticles gently with a cuticle pusher.

Models Direct Male Modelling Beauty Advice

Models Direct Male Modelling Beauty Advice

Models Direct help aspiring male models break into the industry. Here are some tips that you, to succeed in male modelling, should bear in mind.

Models Direct
Models Direct
Modelling is a profession where presentation is extremely important because it caters to the visual aspect. Therefore, grooming is an extremely important factor. They say that the cameras do not lie and hence your overall appearance matters a lot. 

Hair is an important feature that draws immediate attention. The hair style should be neat whether your hair is short or long. Keeping your hair clean is your duty. If you have long hair, then clean it in sections, whereas short hair is easy to clean. Remember you cannot afford to have dandruff on your scalp and hairs.

Face is another vital factor. If you have a good facial structure, you are blessed. Even if you do not have that, it is important to keep your skin glowing. This is one of the most important male model tips for grooming. Stay away from strong astringents and clean your face often which will remove the dirt. However, use products that suit your skin type.

Feedback for Facebook and Google Places (Medmerry Park - £180):

I had a wonderful time at the shoot, the people doing the filming were very helpful, and my fellow actor / models were terrific, we all had great fun - meeting new and interesting people is always a pleasure!

We were playing the part of a family enjoying a holiday at Medmerry Park, a large holiday complex of chalets on the South coast near Chichester. On the first afternoon, I was joined by three other models. I played the part of the grandfather, a charming lady played my wife, a very nice young man played our son, and finally a beautiful young lady played his wife (our daughter in law). We all became great friends. The next morning we were joined by two lovely children (a boy and a girl) playing my grandchildren. We swam, rode bicycles, enjoyed a jacuzzi, paddled in the sea - all the things a family does on holiday.

This is the first time I have been on a film shoot, previous work has been studio stills. This was a great new experience which taught me a lot.

I would certainly recommend this experience to others, it was great fun. I would advise anyone wishing to work in the talent industry to sign up with Talent Management and to have the best possible portfolio with excellent professional pictures. By all means use any contacts you have to pursue work yourself too. Keep in touch with your agency, let them know you are keen and willing to work and build a rapport with them. I was recommended by a friend to start modelling - obviously the money is a bonus, but I wanted something new and exciting to do - and to meet new people.

Hi all,

I had a fabulous experience being a model/actor for a day. I was not sure what to expect, but thanks to the amazing team members and the client I felt very welcomed. I was playing a role of a little brother to my 11 year old 'sister' and had an amazing set of model parents and grandparents. We had photo shoots and a video recording at the holiday resort park. I loved playing on the beach with my sister - wish I could do it again! It was my first time and I cant wait to take part in more assignments. I highly recommend to start pursuing your acting career asap if you wish to be in the talent industry.  Thank you Talent Management for giving me this opportunity - I feel even more confident in myself and love earning money at my young age. - from Gerald

Feedback for Modelling Job (Coco Blu - £80):

Theo was chosen to do his second clothes fittings with Old Brown/Coco Blu.  We arrived and were greeted by the same friendly faces who immediately made Theo feel comfortable and at ease. They took attention to detail such as making sure the heating was right and they engaged with Theo on his level. The experience was quick and very welcoming just like his first clothes fittings session. Theo has now had 3 jobs with Talent Management, who have kept me well informed and put him forward for the roles which were very suitable to his character and talent. Theo was provided with a boys magazine which catered to him to keep him entertained and engaged.

I would surely recommend other parents consider modelling for their children through Talent Management as it has helped Theo grow in confidence, especially at his age where he is growing into a boy rather than a toddler.  Talent Management have kept me as a parent up to date and I am so very proud to have Theo as a model with the agency.  We look forward to more adventures with Talent Management!

Baby Modelling Tips

Models Direct

Baby Modelling Tips

Are you convinced your baby has modelling potential? Models Direct has a few tips to help you out!

 It can be a fun way to fill the first year and spend time with your new-born. While my heart burst at the seams when her pictures appeared in magazines and catalogs, what I wasn't expecting was how it developed her confidence and self-esteem. It also teaches babies about working with others.

To find a reputable baby and child model agency, search online, and ask mums whose children model about their experiences. Do your research and avoid makeover studios posing as modelling agencies. In order to get an agency to see the potential in your baby, get professional, simple shots taken. These should not be airbrushed or digitally manipulated.

No silly shots in sunglasses or eating ice cream. Clear facial head shots and full-length shots are best at showing if your baby has what it takes.
Agencies are always looking for new-borns because they have a short modelling span.

They are always on the lookout for the next fresh face. Six months is a popular age because by then babies are sociable and smiley, plus they're stronger and starting to sit. It is before they reach the terrible two’s!

One thing that's guaranteed is if you've spent three hours on a packed train getting to a job or casting, you'll arrive with a grumpy tired toddler. You need to sacrifice your time to take your baby to these modelling auditions, and they might not get the part. If you know a good local agency, use them.

Here is a testimonial from Katie:

Hi all,

Feedback for Facebook and Google Places (Feel Agency for Inspired Homes - £200):

I modelled for Inspired Homes for the day.  The location was a very beautiful house in North London, and the shoot involved six of us having various photos taken in different rooms of the home.

I wasn't nervous as this was my 4th modelling assignment with Talent Management, so I feel as though I'm getting a little more confident and comfortable after each job, and gaining more experience is helping me a lot.

Photos were taken of myself and a female model, acting as though we were a couple enjoying our new home.  This was new for me but I adapted fairly quickly. The other models and crew members were very friendly and easy to get along with, which helps towards being relaxed for the shoot.

I enjoy modelling a lot and the variety that comes with it, it is always a little different to what you've done before which makes it that much more exciting to do.

Joining Talent Management has been an enjoyable experience and one of the best decisions I have ever made. It is a great organisation and I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in modelling.

Models Direct Review: Become A Child Model

Models Direct

At Models Direct we pride ourselves on the service we offer. We are here to get you work and make your career happen. For more information, visit the Models Direct website. Here is a real review written by one of our new clients. 

You have probably covered this kind of story before but here goes. We are the parents of a 4 year old boy. We have always had lots of comments about how good looking he is and so decided to put him forward for modelling. We sent his picture to start up models who then rang us and raved about his look. Big ego boost to us but questions in our mind about how legit it was. Went for the photo shoot with them where he was a natural and they again raved about him. Then talked us into paying for a portfolio of 10 photos for £600 (rip off???!!!). We then sent these photos of to a number of agencies and at least 12 agencies got back to us offering to represent him, either for a hefty registration fee or after we had paid for more photos. As new parents to this industry you feel as though you are being conned at every turn and that people are playing on your role as doting parents. How do you know who to trust?
Look forward to hearing from you
Kirsty roter
Our son is registered with talent management who did charge a registration fee but who also offered services that the other agencies did not offer.
