This all started with my son’s prom picture. I never thought Alex would be interested in being a model, he’s more interested in his phone!! But when he’s prom picture came back he looked so handsome. We had a chat about it and he was very keen. Looking on the internet I didn’t really know where to turn, when I found UR Models, their site looked really professional and they had loads of good reviews so thought let’s give them a go, and they did not disappoint. Once I had sent Alex’s photo in I got a call from a very excited woman at UR Models. To be honest at that point I started giving her the third degree about modelling, but she was very patient and kind taking time to make sure I really understood what this could all mean for Alex. We went to meet them and Alex had a phootshoot, which he loved! Even getting his hair done! And we haven’t looked back since really. After getting his portfolio put together UR Models helped us immensely with agencies and casting companies and Alex got signed by 2 agencies as well as getting some freelance work himself. He manages to fit the jobs around his sixth form studies, he does some on weekends but mainly shoots during his holidays. He loves it and its been amazing to see his confidence build as he is doing more and more. The UR models team have been incredible throughout, I couldn’t recommend them higher to someone wanted to start out.
UR Models has changed my life for the better. I have always dreamed of being a model and envied models on catwalks or within magazines but as time went on I gave up on the hope of me being one as I was getting older and I never thought for a minute there was a market for ladies of my age. I am now 36, and 5 months ago I came across UR Models when researching mature modelling online, I registered my details and uploaded a photo then thought no more about it. I was then contacted by a friendly lady from UR Models who discussed mature modelling in great depth and made me see what a huge modelling market it is. I then visited UR Models and attended a great photo shoot, which was so much fun and I learned so much, I never knew how important a portfolio was and I happy to say I now have a fabulous one! Since contacting UR Models I am now registered with a great agency in London who specialise in the mature modelling, they really look after me and I am thankful to have had so many jobs that have been so great. UR Models are true professionals, who know the industry so well, I can not thank them enough!
Modelling was never something I had given much thought of in my early years, my passion had always been fitness, weight training and attending sports competitions but as the years went by I many people at my gym saying I should do modelling as I keep my self so fit and someone who worked at the gym recommended UR Models for help. I am 39 years old and thought what is the worst that can happen, I had more to gain so I contact galaxy. I am so glad I actually listened to friends and went to UR models as now I am at 39 year old fitness model!! It’s been a crazy journey, from day one of contacted UR, things have gone full steam ahead and I am loving it. UR Models have given me advice that is priceless and they have helped get me to where I am now. My portfolio is top standard and that is thanks to the UR team, without it I would be getting the work I am and earning the income I have now. From contacting UR models, then meeting with them and following their advice I am now registered with 3 agencies all for the mature model and from this, I get work every week that I have now been able to give up my day job as a carpenter. I am living a life I thought only was in dreams, I have travelled the world, worked with top brands and I have been part of some great advertising campaigns. If I could give any mature model some advice it would be to contact UR Models, they without a doubt a great company who have your best interests at heart. I am now a successful model in my mature years, it’s amazing!
I want to say a massive thank-you to UR Models. I am naturally a bit of a worrier and when it comes to my children this goes into overdrive! Without UR Models’ help getting Cara into modelling would have been a nightmare.
Cara has wanted to start modelling for a couple of years, to be honest I didn’t know where to start with it, but I came across the ur models website and thought I would give it a go. From the very beginning they were so friendly and helpful that I felt at ease. They explained how the industry works, restrictions and realities so that there were no surprises for me or my daughter.
When we went to Cara’s phoot shoot I thought she might be nervous but she was unbelievable! She was so natural and confident, I couldn’t believe it was my daughter!! She had the best time and the photos were amazing, it was amazing as a mother to watch. We got her a portfolio together and now again with the incredible help from UR models we have managed to Cara out into modelling. She has got signed to 2 agencies and has already started working, last weekend she was in a dog food advert….very glamorous! She loves it though.
Thank-you so much UR models, for putting up with a very nervous mummy, you have been so professional and helpful.
