England, United Kingdom (PressExposure) March 21, 2009 -- The general expectation for people as they enter their sixties is that they will live their autumn years quietly, sitting in front of TV and doting on the grandchildren.
For increasing numbers of older people however, the reality is quite different.
After all, why should advancing years stop you from going out and trying new things? Isnât retirement the perfect time to have a go at all those things you never had time for when you were working and raising a family â like a career in modelling [http://www.modelsdirect.com/locations/worldwide.html], for example?
All it takes to become a model is a bit of confidence and the will to try something new.
With one of the largest portfolios of models around, Models Direct are the go-to agency for advertisers needing to find a model to fill a particular niche. That also makes them the perfect place to approach if you think youâd like to try modelling for the first time.
According to Managing Director of nationwide agency Models Direct Damian OâConnor, his company often gets assignments specifically calling for older models, from clients who want to produce brochures and leaflets aimed at an older demographic.
For older models that do this work, it can be a lot of fun and a great way to earn a bit of extra cash. Most of the models at Models Direct have not worked their whole life in a modelling career [http://www.modelsdirect.com/ourmodelssay-select.html]. However, they like the idea of becoming a model and have taken the step of signing up with an agency which specialises in finding work for models of all ages, sizes, and ethnicities.
âItâs a great pleasure to place our older models in assignments,â says OâConnor. âOf course it is always great to be able to find the right models for a specific job, but what is really exciting is the reaction of the models themselves.â
âThe models tell us that the shoots are great fun, and that modelling makes them feel really good about themselves,â says OâConnor.
