I think that's called 'passion' and 'commitment' and my understanding is that in order to be successful one needs both. If you're reading this thinking about how, you might find success, the first thing I'll freely tell you here and now is that, you'll need to never give up.
Giving up, is what everyone else does, those left standing are 'successful' or as the 'givers ups' prefer to call them, 'lucky'. Ask Elton John, Kate Moss, or anyone at the top of their profession,' how lucky have you been'? Be prepared for a moment, while they weigh up whether to go into what is really behind their success. I doubt luck will get a mention.
From photographing people ourselves, we went on to represent people farther afield, using photographs they had taken, to find them work. Whenever we we're asked for a particular look, talent, skill, we would match our models and talent with the clients' demand and if successful, 'presto' a booking would happen. For more than 20 years now this has happened and many thousands of people, with all manner of looks, skills and motivations have been represented by us to the film, TV, advertising, fashion and promotional industries throughout the UK and Europe.
All the while, we've been a Government regulated Employment Agency. Nowadays with the scrabble of competing websites, many businesses make all sorts of wild claims, while in their tiny small print there's lots of 'what they don't do', like find work for example. Showcase sites are just that. Unregulated online displays, showing lots of paying hopefuls smiling out at other prospective hopefuls' thinking of joining them. Nothing else happens. Sad but true.
Whereas, as a regulated Employment Agency, we have an in house team of professionals on the phones and online throughout the day, talking to clients and proposing our talent and models for paid work. Paid, because that's where our money comes from, 1/3 of what we get for our models and talent. That can be from £100 to several hundred pounds a day.
Have a thorough look at our site and better still, come and see us. Our UK Head Office is in East Anglia, a beautiful part of the country and there's lots to see and do, if you perhaps combine your visit into a weekend.
From our talents' online success stories if you like the look of the sort of people you'd like to represent you, complete an online application and see how we respond.
Whatever you do, if you are looking for success, it wont come looking for you. You'll need to seek it out and not give up when it takes a while. If you'd like some help in looking, that's what we do and we may well be able to help.
With, or without us, good luck!
In my late teens I did freelance work sourcing models and talent for commercials. I loved it so much I set my sights on being an Agent! Talent Management talent agency is an efficient, professional and exciting company to be involved in, no two days are the same! My favourite part of my work is calling talent to say they have been selected for an assignment - they are always so thrilled - its a real 'feel good factor'! My passion is technology and keeping Talent Management talent agency up-to the minute with the latest internet and email developments. Keep checking our site, there are new additions every week!
Hi My name is Kara, I am from Northern Ireland and have been living in the UK for the past 12 yrs. I am a very sociable and an outgoing person and enjoy the craic!, I love to travel, especially going back home to see my family and friends and I have been to other various countries across the world. My favourite place so far has been New York, as I really love to shop and taking in the ambience of this wonderful city at the same time. The shows were amazing and the sites were breathtaking. My weekends are spent with friends and family enjoying the surroundings that Norwich brings, especially the expanding Shopping Malls and in particular The Norfolk broads which have been coined ‘Britain’s Magical Waterland’ which represents the mystic beauty of the rivers. Due to my outgoing personality i enjoy meeting people and socialising in many different ways, I’m always ready a challenge and ready for what life has round the corner!
Music and performance is my passion and I have been playing music and singing since I was just 5 years old entering competitions and working hard at my music exams. After finishing my education I took time out with my family, but the lure of music, theatre, TV and entertainment kept pulling me back. I ran a recording studio and TV production company and this is how I became involved with Talent Management and Models Direct some 22 years ago. I have worked on lots of the fantastic and innovative developments here at the agency and work with a great team of people but the best thing is being able to relate directly and with experience to the models, singers, dancers and entertainers that we represent. I still sing and play regularly for festivals and concerts all over the UK and have spent time in front of the camera for Sky TV and the BBC as well as meeting some fantastic people ranging from Jamie Oliver, Fearne Cotton, Jamie Cullum to John Major, Terry Wogan & Dr David Starkey. The thrill and buzz of being on stage and on camera is unbeatable.
I love travelling and having family in Ireland and my partners family come from Cyprus, I've always got an excuse to travel! Whether it's a weekend away or a well deserved holiday I always like to make the most of it, be it sightseeing or relaxing! My passion for Italy began a few years back whilst on a road trip with friends through travelling through France and into Italy over the Alps, hence it being a place I have returned to many times. Staying in Rome, Lake Garda, Venice, Verona, Turin, The Dolomites, it's a fantastic country and will always be a special place for me, I am sure I will return again! I was staggered by New York, it was an amazing experience to visit, from the Empire State Building to The Statue of Liberty, from a Broadway Show to just browsing around Chinatown, I am very pleased to know that I have visited this incredible city. Barcelona has the most amazing and varied architecture, in particular Gaudi's unfinished masterpiece 'The Sagrada Familia'. Las Ramblas is the street that certainly is the heart of Barcelona, a vibrant and lively promenade filled with Barcelona action at its best, and of course my partner enjoyed our visit to 'The Nou Camp', and like Italy another place I would love to return to. I'm now about to book my dream holiday of a Trans Canadian holiday, starting in Toronto and finishing in Vancouver for this summer and I cannot wait!
I am married to Dave and a mum to 2 boys aged 11 and 8. I work part-time here at Models Direct, I work during school hours which means I also get to do my mum role by doing school morning drop offs and afternoon pick ups. I have been working here now for almost 8 years and must say I feel privileged to be part of such a great team of girls! I would class myself as a girly girl, I enjoy shopping, fashion, nails, lashes and exercise. Previously to this job I worked in a Pub/Restaurant for 8 years as the Assistant Manager, I disliked the unsociable hours after having my children, so felt a career change was needed!
As a keen runner, I have spent the last 2 years competing in the annual Race for life, to help raise money for a charity which is very close to my heart. Having lived in a small town for all my childhood, I’m now in the process of trying to move into a city environment to experience city living and all that this has to offer.
I love the endless opportunities here at Models Direct - Each day is so different. I love trying new things, experiences and opportunities. Myself i have experienced a few, including Travelling to Africa, and becoming a Mum (one of the most rewarding jobs, yet so demanding and fun). I have a passion for Fashion and Hair - again i love to be creative, also Music and Dance. You have to be motivated to see each day as a new day and the endless opportunities that await - Life is what you make it, its a journey, don't forget to enjoy it, accept the challenges, and enjoy the ride, time once gone cannot be given back, so make the most of it. Keep positive and keep smiling (it makes others wonder why).
I had spent the majority of my working life in the legal sector and when I felt that a change of career was needed, I was lucky enough to be offered a position in the Assignments Department at Talent Management. I highly enjoy working in a positive environment, being the bearer of good news to our models and supporting them throughout the booking process, as well as working with exciting clients on a daily basis. Passions of mine outside of work include surrounding myself with good people, humour, music, Egyptian/Oriental dance, exploring different cultures, travel and Caribbean food.
I like the English weather, North Norfolk beaches, Books in the bath, going to live gigs. Ice cream, barbies, friends round for a laugh, getting lost in a forest, wondering off the path. Walking, cycling, getting out of breath. Tickling the children, putting them to bed. I don't like the dentist.
Hi my name is Billie. I was born and breed in Norwich. I live in the city with my partner and our giant house rabbit. I have a passion for food whether this is going out for a nice meal or creating my own at home. I enjoy live music events and spending time with my family and friends.
I Moved to join the Models Direct Talent Management team from leaving a retail Management Background. I am a really sociable and outgoing person who loves communicating and meeting new people which is why i love my role at the agency as that is exactly what it allows me to do every single day. I have many passions such as traveling, animals and music. I love being able to explore countries and learning about new cultures and very fortunate to have done so in many wonderful countries such as Cuba, Turkey and Caribbean. I love living life to the full and taking life by the horns. Every day is an adventure... make sure you enjoy it.
I have always been very creative and love working with a team that gets people into the creative industries. I myself am a Studio pro trained SFX Makeup Artist and Filmmaker, and I love to work on Films, Theater and TV Projects outside of my time here at Model's Direct. I am also a keen writer and am in the process of writing my first book. I have a beautiful little house rabbit named Bilbo, and a lovely Lhasa Apso pup called Loki (also known as Bear or Cheese). I am an animal lover and a proud vegetarian. I love to travel and have spent time volunteering in Italy - my favourite place I've ever traveled to so far is Qatar! My dream location for travel is Japan, and I have recently taken up learning Japanese. I have loved learning what the team do and getting involved - there's nothing more satisfying then seeing one of your model's getting selected for work!
Being creative and someone who gets bored very easily in jobs. I've always looked for that perfect combination of responsibility and enjoyment to keep me my toes. Over the years I've worked in many different industries and I feel very fortunate being part of the TM team, I really enjoy working with exciting clients and being the bearer of good news to the models.
I thoroughly enjoy spending each day talking to people as that’s what I do best! I have many different interests, my main one being travelling to different places. I have spent timing living in Newcastle and Tenerife. I am a part time sports masseuse which I thoroughly enjoy after training for 2 years, meeting new clients and seeing their progression feels great! I never spend a day looking back at anything, only looking forward, taking each day as it comes but each as a new adventure.
