Modelling for SubSeventy was Great Fun for Model Jamie

SubSeventy is a golf clothing company that aims to ‘funk up your game’. When they needed a man to model clothes on the website, they came to us. They wanted someone aged twenty-five or over, who was over 6ft and fit and healthy looking.

Jamie was the man chosen to model the stylish sportswear and the photos are featured on the website. This was his first assignment with Models Direct since signing up in June.

He gave us some feedback on how the photoshoot went.

“It went very smoothly and ran on time, the whole experience was very professional,” Jamie informed us. “It was good fun and I was treated well by the photographer.” He said the best thing about the assignment was being paid to have fun.

A Lovely Day Out in Cambridge for Models Jacky and Kevin!

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 Direct models and the client's 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.”

Would you want to be covered in body paint?!

Last month Candice from Cyates Photography came to us looking for a model to take part in a rather unusual assignment. The perfect male model had to be slim with great features and someone who wouldn’t mind being covered in body paint!

The photographic assignment was for an art project shoot and it was model Glyn who was selected. He told us that body paint was a new area of modelling for him but that it was very good fun.

We also got a great response from Candice. When Models Direct asked how the assignment went she told us: “Great! The model was right on time and extremely easy to work with. The model had a great positive attitude.”

We haven’t seen the photos yet but if they’re anything like the rest of Cyates Photography’s work they’ll be fantastic! You can have a browse on the website here, our favourites are of boats stranded in the sand.

Home Sweet Home!

Cross Key Homes needed models to look like a family and so it was perfect when they found brother-sister modelling duo Gabrielle and Perry. Along with Victoria and Vaughan playing mum and dad, they all enjoyed and afternoon photoshoot.

The housing association had originally tried using residents for the photoshoot, which was to promote a housing scheme, but they turned to Models Direct when they didn’t achieve the high standard they were looking for.

This was the siblings’ first taste of modelling and they both enjoyed the assignment, which involved having a pillow fight and playing around the house and garden.

Gabrielle and Perry’s dad, who went along to the photoshoot, told us that the children had lots of fun and that they both thought the experience was fantastic.

Perry, Gabrielle, Vaughan and Victoria play a happy family.

Models Direct Christmas ‘Tails’



Earlier in the year, Models Direct provided Refinery Photography with these pet models for the Kleeneze Christmas catalogue. As Christmas is quickly approaching, now seems an appropriate time to post the photos!

Rudi the cat and Enrique the dog had to get in the Christmas spirit early as this festive photoshoot took place in June!

Both of the pets’ owners were pleased with the assignment, especially Rudi’s owner Joanne as she had only signed up the day before.

What do you think of the photos? Here at Models Direct we think they’re adorable!
