Having formed in 2004 Source Models have quickly established themselves as one of the leading suppliers of commercial models and actors to the UK advertising industry representing over 500 people. All bookings are overseen by co-founders Paula Harrison and David Gibbs and with over 20 years experience between them in the industry pride themselves on delivering excellent service and exceeding client expectations.
Our aim is simple; to provide a friendly, efficient service and a comprehensive choice of models or actors. We support marketing campaigns from small to medium size business’s right through to multi-national companies with worldwide exposure. We supply models for a variety of work including Photo shoots, TV commercials, PR activity and promotional work.
We understand the need for advertisers to use faces in their campaign that can be related to by the end user. To that end, we supply models in a range of categories. Kids and Teenagers, Men, Women and Families right through to Character Models, Actors and Presenters, even Body Parts! We have a good choice of models from different ethnic backgrounds, essential when looking to match the diversity of the UK population or when booking advertising space in different locations around the world. As a ‘one stop shop’ we supply Hair, Make-up and Stylists and are also happy to recommend photographers from our comprehensive client bank.
