Vaneesha, Model fee: £110.00
Filming an internal video for this luxury car company, was a very good experience for Vaneesha She was asked to perform not just act as it was a difficult virtual situation, filming in front of a green screen. The environment was very friendly and crew members were helpful.Thanks Models Direct, looking forward for more live assignments.
Phoebe, Model fee: £150.00
Phoebe said " at first I was a little nervous as this was my first assignment and didn't know what to expect. The crew were funny and made me and Toby laugh. I had to play games with Toby while photos were taken. I forgot about the camera as I was having fun playing! I learnt that we have to sit up straight and keep smiling as we were playing. I had fun and would like to do it again"
Phoebe had been with Models Direct for two years before securing this assignment posing for Learning Resources catalogue, so you need to be patient and most importantly make sure that your profile is updated regularly.
Bobby and Jack, Model fee: £500.00
It was brilliant fun, the whole family was involved for this assignment which made it even more exciting! We would definitely love to do it all again.
The assignment involved being filmed and photographed pretending we are getting the keys to our new home and then celebrating our new home with champagne on the balcony. The cameraman was great, giving us simple instructions and increasing our confidence. The most fun part of the assignment was watching my children have a great time with beaming smiles.
We would definitely recommend it to other families - a great fun experience and you get paid, win, win!
I haven't been great at keeping the boys profiles updated but this has spurred me on to update them so they can get more work. I signed the boys up to Models Direct as I thought they would love the experience and I was right, getting paid for it is a bonus.
Angel, Model fee: £250.00
Angel just finished the film shoot for advertisement of Hull City of Culture 2017. Angel was really happy and enjoyed the filming. All of the staff were kind and helpful. It was a really fun and unforgettable experience. Angel was very thankful to Models Direct for her first and very lovely assignment.
Mylo-Lloyd, Reference: BM675573, Model fee: £250.00
Mylo throughly enjoyed his Models Direct booking in Hull!
samantha, Model fee: £250.00
I really enjoyed been a model for Learning Resources and would love to do more modelling shoots. I was nervous to start with but when I got going I couldn't stop laughing and smiling.
From the photo shoot I gained so much confidence in front of the camera and speaking to new people.
I would recommend this experience to other as it gives you confidence, you get to meet loads of new friend and play with toys!
My advise for people is to be your self and have loads of fun doing it.
I joined Models Direct because I wanted to experience been a model and see if it was for me and I I wanted to earn my own money to buy clothes, shoes, toys and to save some for when I am older!Samantha ( 5 years old)
Amber, Reference: 1523, Model fee: £150.00Really enjoyed our morning at the studio, the staff were very welcoming, lovely and made Amber and myself (mum) feel relaxed.
The photographer was fantastic! Made Amber feel at ease the whole way through the shoot.
Thank you to Marie at Models Direct for guiding me through our first modelling experience and all the staff at the photography and catalogue agency for such an amazing experience. We are so happy with having such a fantastic opportunity!
Can't fault any part of the experience, Amber is looking forward to seeing her photos in the Learning Resources catalogue and she thoroughly enjoyed her experience with the team. Thank you!
Violet, Reference: 1525, Model fee: £150.00I felt good being a model for the day. It was fantastic and I hope to do it again very soon!
I really enjoyed getting my pictures taken and playing with the toys when the photos were not being taken. I was asked to smile and I was asked to hold some toys for the pictures. They asked me to sit down, and I had to move my hands in different places on the table.
I learnt that modelling is about listening and smiling, I would tell anyone that wants to, to do it because lots of people like smiling and it was really fun, plus if you're really good you will have your face on a magazine!
I wanted to join Models Direct to do modelling jobs and I thought it was going to be fun,thank you!
Violet (5years old)
Noah, Reference: 1496, Model fee: £270.00
Noah had lots of fun filming for the Sainsburys Christmas advert. From leaving home to arriving in London, we were made to feel really special.
Being on set was the most exciting part of the shoot. Watching Noah's face light up when the cameras started rolling and when he placed the star on top of the Christmas tree really was priceless. On the second shot, the director confirmed that this was the one, which was very impressive considering Noah's disability. This was a great achievement for him. He was treated with so much respect by the crew who completely catered to all of our needs. Noah bonded with everyone on set, particularly his on screen family which included Jo Burke, Alexander Perkins and a lovely young actress who played his sister. He had so much with them. Noah also loved playing in the dressing room with the Wardrobe Stylist who was wonderful too. Despite it being a long day, Noah smiled the whole time and the everyone on set adored him and thought he was such a special boy. Everyone was amazed by his story.
I would definitely recommend this kind of experience. I wish I had signed Noah up with Models Direct from Day 1! Everyone thinks their child is the most gorgeous in the world, but we were being advised us so much to join an agency that we went for it - we just wish we had done it sooner! Every child is different and has their own unique qualities - there is work for everyone out there. I would recommend all parents to sign their children up - go for it, don't even think about it - just do it! There's only you stopping yourself from reaching your goals in life.
Gracie, Reference: 1502, Model fee: £200.00
I definitely wasn't nervous more excited and keen to get started! I would like to do it again because it was so much fun. I enjoyed dressing up as patient and pretending to be unwell. It has built my confidence and I am eager to do it again. The assignment involved me pretending to be an unwell patient in a hospital ward with a pretend mum. I had my temperature and pulse taken by a nurse while laying in the hospital bed! I was asked to look as if I was unwell and had to try very hard not to smile! The photographer was a very nice lady who told me how to sit and what faces to pull. I really enjoyed this experience and would recommend Models Direct to anyone interested in getting into this sort of work. I had a lot of people tell me how pretty I was and that I should join a modelling agency so I asked my mum to look into it and here I am! This was my first job and I hope there are many more. - Gracie
Darius, Reference: 1410, Model fee: £150.00
Darius had nice time on his photo shoot today - all the people involved were nice and treated us very well. I'm sure he would love to do it again.
Darius posed with an animal print disposable tourniquet (medical device), it was fun for him to choose the one he liked the most. He was very confident, and loved the lights and cameras.
It took a while for my son to get a booking and of course there is no guarantee of work, so as a mother it was great to see my little one on his first ever photo shoot.
I signed Darius up to Talent Management for experience.
Raven, Reference: 1347, Model fee: £150.00
Raven was really looking forward to this and absolutely loved the experience.
She said it made her feel very special and she can't wait to do it again, her favorite part of the day was Posing on the Triumph motorcycle.
She was asked to sit and act as natural as possible as if she was having fun with her family and helping her dad with the bike.
I believe she has come away from this experience with a lot more confidence and understanding of the modeling world. This is something that she really wants to do and would recommend it for anyone else with an interest in this industry.
If I was to give advice to anyone I would say it is a lot of waiting around so if u want to do something like this be prepared for that, act confident, be helpful and follow instructions.
We have been updating our e-portfolio and changing photos around so there is always something different.
Raven has always loved the camera, has always been bubbly and loved being in the lime light so Joining Talent Management was a good move for her.
James, Reference: 1349, Model fee: £150.00
James was asked to model for Triumph Motorcycle children's wear's upcoming catalogue. It involved being in a really trendy barber shop, pretending to have his hair cut and posing onto a motorcycle with another child model.
James thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience from start to finish. He loved chatting with different members of the team and getting dressed into various motorcycle clothing.
We felt James behaved very well and listened carefully to the photographers instructions. He was not nervous at all, a real natural with the camera!
The team were extremely professional and friendly, they made James feel at ease and talked him through each pose.
This was James first real assignment with Talent Management and so far so good, fantastic experience! We are very pleased and will be very proactive in updating James e-portfolio now as James would love to do some more modelling very soon!!
Sean, Reference: 1298, Model fee: £200.00
Thank you Talent Management for this opportunity! Sean really enjoyed the whole experience, shooting for Stem's educational toys!
He said that staff were nice and friendly and he enjoyed the snacks that were provided.
As an escorting parent, I can say that staff were warm, friendly, welcoming and helpful.
Millie-Rose, Reference: 1329, Model fee: £150.00
Today was Millie's first assignment for Oasis Floral Product's wedding brochure, she was very excited and on the way there, asked lots of questions on what she was going to do.
When we got there she couldn't wait to get her hair and makeup done and find out what she would be wearing.
The most enjoyable part for her was having her pictures taken but she loved every part of it.
I joined Millie up to Talent Management because of her love for posing for the camera, I believe its her ambition.
As a mother of a five year old girl I would say if they like having their photo taken, its a great experience. All the crew made it fun and made Millie feel at ease.
Alexandra, Reference: 1304, Model fee: £150.00
I really felt like a star on my fancy dress photo shoot, even though I was a little bit nervous at the beginning. I had to dress up in various fancy dresses and have pictures taking for a catalogue. I couldn't wait to look at myself in the pictures, I looked very glamorous! I would definitely do it again. Now I can say I am familiar with what a photo shoot involves and would recommend anyone to try modelling as it is so much fun!
If my mum didn't sign me up with Talent Management, I would probably never have such a great experience! Updating your e-portfolio is very important so the client has a real picture of how you look/what you can do, and so there wouldn't be any issues later on.
Taylor, Reference: 1302, Model fee: £200.00
I joined up with Talent Management for Taylor as they looked supportive and professional, she's been signed up for a while and this was her first assignment but it was professionally laid out and Taylor felt comfortable and happy in the environment she was asked to work.
She was very excited about it and really enjoyed being in front of the camera as well as the tasks she was being asked to do (play with the products, interact with the other children) Taylor was asked to play with the products (Stem's educational classroom toys) with the other children whilst the photographer gave direction and took photos. All of the individuals at the shoot were extremely friendly and supportive, they gave clear but polite instructions and Taylor really enjoyed working with them.
Advice I would give for anyone letting their child model/act, let it be fun, don't pressurize a child and make sure their enjoying it. I do not actively pursue work for Taylor but she enjoys the work and is always excited about being in front of the camera.
Hanaf, Reference: 1284, Model fee: £200.00
Although she may be nervous, Hanaf is a very well mannered and pleasant child who does not hide or resist contact. She actually enjoys modelling, finds it exciting and that it increases her confidence and communication skills.
Hanaf really enjoyed meeting the other children on her first educational toy catalogue photoshoot from Talent Management.
She liked the attention and getting ready for the shoot.
For her modelling is like a project and Hanaf strives to stand out in her projects. As this was Hanaf's first assignment she now knows what to expect and can be better prepared next time.
We would definitely recommend this experience to others as we believe modelling is a great way to increase a child's confidence.
People think modelling is not a good industry to go into and that the field is only for those with great figure or looks. I think there is alot of misconceptions that needs to be changed.
As parents we wanted Hanaf to join a modelling agency to have interesting experiences and a good head start in life. Hanaf really enjoys posing for the camera and has a great smile. It makes her happy and excited. This is the reason why we joined Talent Management.
Codie-Rae, Reference: 1285, Model fee: £200.00
Codie- Rae had mixed emotions as this was her first assignment, she was nervous and excited. 'I really enjoyed myself, I can't wait to do it again' said Codie.
Codie hasn't been with Talent Management for long and I was shocked at how quick she got a invite for a job.
The assignment was a photoshoot to advertise 'Stem' educational toys, she had lots of fun doing this. I would recommend Talent Management for anyone who is unsure about doing this. I have found them very helpful in helping me to guide my daughter into something she has shown an interest in doing.
I haven't been as pro active as I should be at uploading photos to Codies porfolio but I am going to endeavor to do so as now she has done one 'job' as she really is excited about doing more and I want to help by keeping up to date with her pictures
Thank you for the opportunity of perusing one of her dreams!
Dawood, Reference: 1287, Model fee: £200.00
Thank you Talent Management, Dawood really enjoyed the shoot today especially meeting different kids of all ages. Dawood was friendly, not nervous at all and spoke to all the kids and team members involved.
The photo shoot was for Stem educational toys catalogue. He and another child were given a construction set to play with and enjoy. Snacks were always available and the team was polite and patient.
Shay Aaliyah, Reference: 1288, Model fee: £200.00
Shay had an amazing morning modelling with a few other children, It was set in a school environment playing with Stem educational toys. Her and a little boy called Freddie made a project and had pictures taken for the catalogue.
She really enjoyed it plus Freddie was fun to work with to.
Shay was really excited to do the assignment, everyone that worked there was very welcoming and made us feel comfortable. Shay wasn't nervous at all even though it was her first assignment ,she would love to do something like this again and is a very happy little girl for the experience and for earning some money! Thank you to Talent Management and Marie!
Aiden, Reference: 1289, Model fee: £200.00
I absolutely loved my first modelling assignment today it was really good fun working with the photographer and the other children, I cannot wait for the next one!
My assignment was modelling Stem educational toys with other children for the catalogue and there wasn't a single part from the day I could pick out as more enjoyable than the rest as I loved every second from walking into the building to walking out again.
Actually I wish that I could of been there for a few more hours, I just love being in front of the camera!
For anybody who is thinking about or wanting to become a model I would just say two things, firstly "relax" and secondly "have fun"
I joined up with Talent Management for experience and to take advantage of the knowledge that they posses of the industry. This is something I really feel comfortable doing and enjoy, so hopefully my first of many assignments.
Thank you Talent Management team for my first opportunity!
Rio, Reference: 1292, Model fee: £200.00
We would absolutely recommend Talent Management to others, Rio was originally quite apprehensive about being a model for the first time, however, he soon lightened up and was looking forward to it :)
Rio had a fantastic day modelling for Stem educational toy catalogue whilst making some new friends , he said he really enjoyed it and would love to take part in some more modelling again soon.
Harry, Reference: 1264, Model fee: £600.00
We were all really looking forward to our day shooting as a family for Exbury Gardens and had a really great time. Harry didn't want to leave at the end of the day as he had had so much fun! Our 14 month old daughter, Bella, also seemed to enjoy every minute of the experience!
The gardens where the photography took place were stunning. We were made to feel very welcome and met some really lovely people on the shoot.
We would happily undertake a similar shoot again as a family. We would recommend the experience to others, as you get to visit new places and meet lovely people.
We decided to join up with Talent Management as so many people had commented on how our 4 year old son is such a natural in front of the camera, so we thought it might provide him with good experience and opportunities.
A big thank you from the Tomlinson family!
Elizaveta, Reference: 160269, Model fee: £300.00
Elizaveta was a little nervous before the assignment, but the film crew and staff from Wex Photographic made her feel very welcomed, relaxed and comfortable. Elizaveta absolutely enjoyed the day and she would definitely love to do it again. Elizaveta received good comments from the film crew and they said she is very natural in her acting.
In the assignment she played a daughter which goes for a walk with her dad (played by another Talent management Model). During the walk they were stopping to look at the beautiful surroundings of Holkham Beach area and “dad” was taking pictures of Elizaveta using his new camera.
Elizaveta loved walking on the beach and in the woods surrounding it, but most of all she like interacting with the owl also on set, watching baby frogs in the woods and finding mushrooms under the trees. The day was finished by shooting the last scene at the lake with beautiful sunset.
Elizaveta gained a lot of experience from the video shoot and her confidence has grown a lot.
We would definitely recommend others to give their children the opportunity to have similar experience, it helps them to meet and interact with new people, it is fun and gives kids an enormous confidence boost.
We would definitely recommend joining an agency such as Talent Management as it is very hard to find work by yourselves. However you have to remember that the work in the talent industry can, at times, mean a long day and a very tired child at the end of it. Elizaveta started the video shoot at 09-30 and finished at 18-00 with an hour and a half of traveling each way. The client looked after us very well by providing lunch, snacks and drinks during the day.
Elizaveta would like to become and actress when she is older and by joining Talent Management she can gain experience and the confidence to pursue this career in the future.
We are hoping to be working with you again soon and thank you very much to Talent Management for a great day!
