“The shoot was fabulous! By the end of the session she was really posing! It was clear the photographer was very experienced working with animals and the whole shoot felt really good.”

Fresh Flame have returned to modelling agency Models Direct time and time again for all different types of pet models. For this assignment, they were looking for beautiful cats to feature in their ‘Cat Collection’ magazine.

The bi-monthly magazine has featured six Models Direct cats and kittens so far, from ‘Fudge’, a British Short Hair cat, to ‘Cocoa’, a very sweet Birman Chocolate point!

Other pedigree cats selected for photographic assignments have included two Maine Coon kittens and a Balinese named Smudgy. The kittens owner commented to Models Direct “It was a good day, we were really welcomed, and felt relaxed all the way through. He got the kittens to do all sorts, which was natural for the kittens i.e play with the tinsel etc which the kittens loved. Then he had to take pics of mum and the kittens together which went well too. Kori and the kittens were very relaxed all the way through and he didn’t get the cats to do things they wouldn’t, he worked around them.”

“The shoot was fabulous!” says Smudgy’s owner. “We let her out of the box when we first arrived and let her have a roam around the studio. She meowed a bit but I gave her some catnip and she soon relaxed. By the end of the session she was really posing! It was clear the photographer was very experienced working with animals and the whole shoot felt really good.”

Here at Models Direct we’re never subscribed to the old saying ‘never work with children or animals’. Our team can offer a variety of work to a very diverse range of models and pets are very much included.

If you think your pet could look great on film, why not find out how to apply for them to be a model with Models Direct? We work with clients who require all kinds of animals for a variety of assignments all over the UK. Who knows, our next animal photographic shoot could feature your own furry friend. Good luck!
