Our Offices: London and Brighton

There is a vast difference in the two offices, both architecturally, design and accessibility wise, and we feel this suits the versatility and diverse nature of our client and model needs.

Here is a glimpse inside the world of Vision Model Management…..

 

 

MARYLEBONE: 12 MELCOMBE PLACE, MARYLEBONE, LONDON, NW1 6JJ

Our Main Head office in London is set within Marylebone station itself – a true hidden gem! Due to frequent and excellent transport links, it is a great base for models and client’s to come and see us- and being on the Bakerloo Line we are about 10 mins to Oxford Circus making it easy to travel to for castings or client meetings.

Set within a  Grade II listed building, the internal office building hosts many companies within the creative sector, and was shortlisted for the BCO design awards 2011.

There is a perfect balance between the design and how the space works as an office environment. Keeping true to the original use as a part of the railway station, the office is scattered with beautiful vintage train related pieces and signage, mixing a perfect dynamic between the history of the building and contemporary feel.

What we love about Marylebone is the real passion and true commitment to sustainability – the building has recycling practices in every aspect such paper, plastic, cans, food for the Wormery- (yes, there is a Wormery!) along with sensor lighting and low energy lighting which helps us all do our bit, whilst still maintaining a professional and comfortable work environment.

What we find invaluable and special for the agency,  are the individual private booths and break out sections. These booths enable us to conduct one-to-one interviews with model’s, catch up for a chat with our existing model’s and have informal client meetings. They are a fabulous space, and enable our model’s to get to know the bookers better- which is vital for a smooth running and trustworthy dynamic.  Our team are always told how nice it is to put a face to a name, and it is a great way for the booking team to build close working relationships with the model’s.

We don’t offer walk-in’s and all interviews are by appointment only, but we arrange informal ‘meet and greet’s’ with new models to introduce them to the agency and the bookers and we like to have regular catch up’s with our existing agency model’s. And of course, there is always cake and sweets available during the meet and greets!

BRIGHTON: 

 

The best thing about the Brighton Office is the location and VIEW !!! We are a stones throw from the famous Brighton Pier and the beach( end of the road!) the Royal Pavilion and overlook the stunning Victorian Fountain, dating back to 1846.

Views from OS

And of course, there are Seagull’s a plenty and endless supplies of fish and chips!

Meet Our Models- SAMANTHA ENGELBRECHT

TO SEE SAM’S COMP CARD AND AGENCY PROFILE GO TO: http://visionmodels.co.uk/profile/samantha-engelbrecht/

1.My favourite job for Vision Model Management so far has been……has definitely been the John Frieda Floral Curls job. I absolutely loved how they made my hair look so similar to Rihanna’s. The nation had to vote what hairstyle they loved the most, I received so many compliments which was a nice ego boost, as I love doing make up but not so great with hair!

2) I have been a model with Vision model management ……about a year and I have booked some great jobs. I have been booked for a JOHN FRIEDA online commercial, and also a JOHN FRIEDA stills shoot and also for SMIFFYS. I have attended many castings so far with Vision, the best one so far was being sent to VOGUE  offices for the BRIDES MAGAZINE casting, which was shooting in France!!

3.My favourite type of modelling job is ……beauty, I love seeing all the different looks the make up artists create, and how different my face can look for each style they choose. It’s really interesting to see another persons interpretation of your face, and what they can bring that you may have not noticed before.
4.The most rewarding thing about modelling is ……being paid to be creative in front of the camera, I love wearing expensive clothes, and taking on different persona’s, and it so rewarding when you’ve worked with an amazing team and you get your photographs back and you love them.

5. The best advise I would give to a new model is……..to stick with it, you will experience rejection, competition and make mistakes, but in the end you will find what works for you, and to not try and be someone else, to work on your own strengths.

6. My daily routine consists of…….I try to be disciplined and take care of grooming, such as skin care, hair care and gym, though some days its hard to fit it in. I think to myself if I just walk some where instead of drive, take extra time to go through your skin are regime. But most importantly always take off your make up at night so you don’t wake up with spider lashes in the morning.

7. What I most love about modelling in London and modelling in general is……Modelling in London is definitely an achievement and a job not everyone can do. I’m originally from Weybridge so when I go back home and tell people about what I’ve been up to I realise what a big deal it is and it makes me feel that I’ve accomplished something. In London your in the heart of where its all at, so its easy to get to castings and parties etc…

8. Top things I do to prepare for a casting/take to a casting…..To prepare for a casting you have to make sure your portfolio is up to date, I use a tablet which makes life a lot easier. A good tip is to tone up the grooming and tone down the styling, don’t wear too much make up if any you want to enhance not cover up. And be yourself, people love models with personality.

9. I am happiest on a job when I ……have great people to work with, we all share the same idea, you have a connection with the photographer so you can go into free flow instead of being bound. And all round its just a great day at work.

10. If I could do a shoot for any designer, it would be….‘Temperley’ … I’ve done a few fitting with them and a showroom modelling job for them with Daniel Sandler but I’d love to model their wedding range, I love dressing up as a bride!

11. I would describe my style as…..I would describe my style as quite simple, I wear a lot of black as I think its flattering, I guess I am verging on quite rock as I love a bit of leather and boots.

12.My favourite high street stores are ‘Cos’, ‘Uniqlo’ and ‘H &M’

13.When I am not working I like to….. hang out with my friends and go to see plays, cinema, go for dinner, gigs. I also like to discover new things recently went to a comedy night which was amazing, and I keep up with Time Out to see what’s going on.

14. The Cheesiest song on my iPod is….’Work B*tch’ by Britney Spears, I love it, its such a gym song and is great for pushing you to keep going when you want to give up.

15. My Role model is…..‘Charlize Theron’ she started off as an actress and was born in Johannesburg near to where my Dad’s side of the family was born and live now. She is incredibly beautiful but doesn’t just use her beauty as her only currency, she is smart, strong and successful and that what I really admire in women.

16. The place I would most like to visit in the world is…. I would love to visit a lot of places in the world, but I’ve always been really curious about Cambodia, I would love to go as it seems a bit different so different from London.

17. In five years time I will be….I would love to still be modelling but also acting also. I’m also quite interested in Psychology, so I’m wondering if there’s a way I could find a way to combine my 3 main interests. Possibly a coach of some sort as I know a few who have helped me when I was first starting including ‘Michelle Paradise’.

Top Tips on how to be a professional model

There is a lot of information out there giving advice to new and established models, so here are our best guidelines of what we think are the do’s and don’ts of model conduct.

Use this as a tutorial, guide or if, like us, you are a fan of lists, you can keep note of the following and tick off in the run up to a casting or a job!

For a casting:

How to Prepare

– Research the client, so that you are aware of their style and the type of job/shoot you are likely to be doing.

– Ensure you know the address and name of person you should ask for upon arrival.

– Make sure you get a good night’s sleep the night before!

What to Bring

– Your portfolio or Z-card

Vision Model Management care about the environment and therefore encourage you to download your portfolio onto a portable device such as a smart-phone or tablet instead of providing a paper version to every job. Your Vision Model Management online portfolio will have been emailed to the client prior to the meeting, however it is helpful to come prepared with your own version in addition.

– Bag essentials to deal with any eventuality e.g. hairbrush, make up for touch ups (if applicable), lip balm, umbrella, phone charger.

What to wear

– This can depend on the client’s wishes (they may ask for a specific dresswear), but it is always a safe bet to wear clothes that are comfortable (you may be asked to dance, jump, roll around) and that are relatively plain as anything too vibrant could be distracting.

– We also advise that you do not wear any obviously branded clothing as this may be seen by the client as supporting a competitor.

– If you are wearing heels, take some flats (or vice versa) as designers may wish to see you walk in both.

What to do during

– Once you are at the casting or job, you should be friendly but professional and most importantly, open to direction.

-Be interested in what you are casting for- ask questions, be excited about the brand!

General Dos and Don’ts:

Do

  • Do keep us up to date with new photos for your portfolio

  • Do let us know immediately if your stats or hair colour have changed

  • Do give notice if you cannot make it to a casting or job

  • A healthy lifestyle is important for everyone and will keep you looking your best

  • Do always keep in contact with the agency and your contact booker- for example, if you are lost or cannot remember the name of the casting director, we can help!

  • Do always be honest – communication and trust is key!

  • Do download a scanning app – this could help with invoicing and general paperwork such as invoices proof

Don’t

  • Don’t be negative about the client or product

  • Don’t arrived ungroomed – nice hair and nails make all the difference

  • Don’t wear too much perfume – an overpowering scent, however pretty, can be very distracting

  • Don’t arrive late

For any further information, see the official Model Terms and Conditions here: http://visionmodels.co.uk/model-terms-and-conditions/. The most relevant information can be found in section 6.

We hope this has made things a bit clearer, but if you should have any questions, do not hesitate to give us a call or send an email, we are happy to help.

I’ll usually prepare for jobs/castings the night before and double check travel etc. If I’m not working or going to castings I tend to mull around London’s vast array of book shops and markets. I love finding old art books and posters.

6. What I most love about modelling in London and modelling in general is…… In London there is always something creative happening. New ideas mixed with an array of cultures. What I love most about modelling is the ‘acting’ part of it. You are someone different in every shoot, I suppose the escapism of it really appeals to me. Dressing up in things I’d never wear and being part of something innovative.

7. Top things I do to prepare for a casting/take to a casting….. Good nights sleep is key. Being hydrated and always double checking where, when and how to get there. My bag is usually pretty heavy; water, snack, model book, heels and flats and also a book as you can be waiting for a while sometimes.

8. I am happiest on a job when I …... have a connection with the photographer. Having that rapport with all the team can make or break a shoot.

9. If I could do a shoot for any designer, it would be…. Elie Saab. Just gorgeous creations!

10. I would describe my style as….. Elegant, simple and individual.

11.My favourite high street store is…… I’d probably say Cos or & Other Stories. Simple and smart.

12.When I am not working I like to…..Cook and eat! Mainly cakes and Eurasian cuisine. I love art and design so I spend a lot of my spare time researching new (and old!) things.

13. The Cheesiest song on my iPod is….’Go Your Own Way’ by Fleetwood Mac.

14. My Role model is….. Aung San Suu Kyi, I admire her strength in a male dominated world.

15. The place I would most like to visit in the world is…. China. My mother is of Chinese heritage but I know little about where my ancestors are from. I would love to see the magnificent landscapes and vibrant cultures around the country.

16. In five years time I will be….Still wondering around trying and finding new things to do. I don’t imagine I’ll change too much 🙂

JOHN FRIEDA book our models for ‘MOST WANTED’ competition shoot

We love working with the John Frieda brand, and the innovative products they produce for everyday haircare solutions, and so it was lovely to be working with them again for the ‘MOST WANTED’ competition.

John Frieda booked Anna, Sam, Sam E, Delina and Hannah for the stills and online commercial shoot. The competition invited fans of the brand to vote for their favourite hairstyle – the Winner receiving an exclusive luxurious style kit.

The competition saw our models, each wearing a different style, and fans would vote on which style was the favourite.

We love the fun images, so ……WHICH IS YOUR FAVOURITE STYLE?!

We love attending London Fashion Week, and this year was fantastic! Although there have been terrible storms and flooding in London recently, the wind, rain and cold did not stop true lovers of Fashion from attending the various LFW shows!

One of our favourite elements of LFW is seeing the fantastic ‘Street Style’ fashions, usually on the forecourt at Somerset House, and this season did not disappoint.

This year, we saw so much creativity, confidence and incredible imagination in some of the outfits, and wanted to share them with you! Here are our best bits of LFW ’14 Street Style
