England, United Kingdom (PressExposure) March 05, 2009 -- Damian OâConnor has received all kinds of odd requests in his time, but has yet to face one that has had him truly stumped.
As Managing Director of Models Direct [http://www.modelsdirect.com/], OâConnor has seen the company grow to become one of the largest modelling agencies in the United Kingdom, and has helped hundreds of clients to find a model to fit their brief.
His company is now one of the few modelling agencies to offer a truly nationwide service, and has carved out an important niche for itself as a provider of talent for clients whose requirements are very specific or a little out of the ordinary.
âWeâve always aimed to have a very broad portfolio of talent,â says OâConnor. âWe can find a model [http://www.modelsdirect.com/ourmodelssay-select.html] of any age, ethnicity, gender, shape, or size, to fit in with our clientâs needs. Weâve even got babies and pets on our books, for example!â
This broad portfolio of models means that Models Direct is often asked to fill jobs at short notice. âI think weâve saved the bacon of a few freelancers and agencies who have found themselves getting uncomfortably close to a deadline without the talent they need for their shoot,â says OâConnor.
Likewise, the companyâs geographical spread means that they have the flexibility to find a model who, for one reason or another, needs to be local to the client.
In one case, for example, a regional tourism agency needed to find models who were based in the area. As a non profit organisation, the client had only a modest budget. Once again, Models Direct were able to draw on their diverse catalogue of talent to find a model [http://www.modelsdirect.com/locations/worldwide.html] who fitted the bill perfectly. The client was thrilled.
âClientâs are often surprised by what we can do,â says OâConnor. âBut itâs what we do best - finding the right talent for the job, no matter how tough.â
