Is the city of Bradford your current destination? The place that you call home?
Are you concerned that the modelling industry is unreachable from the Northern city?
Think again. UK Models can help!
Here at UK Models we have earned ourselves the title of the ‘UK’s leading model support service,’ so whether you’re just two minutes away from us here in London or you’re looking for modelling work in Bradford, Manningham, Clayton or Undercliffe, we are here to help.
Formed on ten years of industry experience and having worked with thousands of new models to establish whether modelling was the right career for them, we’re here to advise you so that you can reach your full potential.
What can UK Models do?
Starting from the very basics of what line of modelling you are interested in (whether this is catalogue, high-end fashion, beauty, fitness, classic, real or commercial), UK Models can offer the support and professional guidance that you require.
Whether you’re in the north of Bradford or the south, male, female, aged seventeen, forty-five or you’re a parent enquiring about modelling work for your child, our team are ready to guide you through the initial process of entering the modelling world. We are not an agency but we certainly know what agencies are looking for and how you need to go about impressing them.
How does the process work?
To start the process off, from Bradford, UK Models have a quick and easy online form for you to fill out that will provide us with all of the necessary information that we require. Perhaps most importantly is the photo, a headshot preferably, so that we can get a good idea of your look. This will help us to understand what sort of modelling will be best for you and if we think you have the potential to succeed. We will also ask you to provide us with your contact information so that we can get in touch if we think you are ready for the industry.
If successful you will be invited to an assessment day.
UK Models will start the process off by contacting you and then inviting you to partake in a model assessment day. For the duration of one day you will be invited from Bradford to London to work with our team of professionals including photographers, stylists and make-up artists, as you pose for a series of photographs on set. This will give you a great idea of what to expect from future modelling jobs and more importantly it will give us a pointer as to how we can advise you into becoming a more successful model.
Bradford to London.
Train: Either choose a direct route from Bradford Interchange to London Kings Cross taking just over 3 hours or opt to change at Leeds for a slightly shorter journey. To complete your journey jump on a tube to arrive at your destination. Book your train ticket in advance to minimise the cost of your ticket.
Car: Driving will take just under 3.5 hours. Ensure that the driver is alert and knows the route stopping to rest when necessary. Schedule enough time to avoid arriving late and flustered at the assessment day. Organise a car park near by to leave your car in walking distance to the studio.
Coach: The coach is a lengthy journey taking approximately 5 hours to arrive at London Marble Arch. Add another half an hour to reach Great Portland Street by foot if you wish to stretch your legs or take the tube for a quicker solution. Always plan ahead and book your seat if you opt for this method of transport.
Every individual is unique.
Tailoring our advice to specifically help you and using our twelve years of experience to guide you in a direction that we think is achievable, realistic and fulfilling, UK Models will then work with you to create your portfolio.
There is not one model looking for work that does not have a portfolio, and thanks to our extensive knowledge of what the industry are on the look out for, we are able to offer you the highest quality portfolios available.
Your first option will be to receive a book featuring your top ten photographs from the day that will have been airbrushed for maximum impact, your second option will be to take a CD away with you that contains your images for later printing, thirdly we can create your very own modelling website (to act as an Online CV) and finally we can produce a set of Z-cards for you that you can carry around and leave with potential clients, agencies, representatives etc.
Over the period of the day you will be exposed to a great amount of information. You will have the opportunity to work with a professional team of industry insiders and most importantly, you will have the chance to have your skill set constructively critiqued to make you the best you can possibly be at this stage.
Back in Bradford.
Upon your return to Bradford you will be far more equipped to start approaching agencies than you will have ever been before. UK Models will provide confidence to look for work and network in the industry. Firstly, seek out opportunities in your hometown yet also expand your research to gauge an awareness of the bigger picture outside of Bradford. Only then can you truly make a decision for your next move.
