Source Models was formed in 2004 and we quickly established ourselves as one of the leading suppliers of commercial and photographic models to the UK advertising industry. We are currently representing over 500 models.
All bookings are overseen by co-founders Paula Harrison and David Gibbs, and with over 20 years of experience between them in the industry they 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. We supply that demand with 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.
We are also one of the only agencies able to offer our services throughout the UK. The majority of our work is in London, the South East and the Midlands but we cover all major cities from Manchester to Leeds, Bristol, Birmingham and Southampton. In fact we have models and clients in every county and all our people are willing to travel.
Whether you book models on a regular basis or this is the first time you’ve dealt with a modelling agency we are here to make life easier. We do the leg work for you, just call or email with a brief and we can recommend the ideal model for you based on location and availability. Alternatively you can browse through the website which is updated every day with new images. A comprehensive search facility allows you to narrow down your choice; you can save these in a lightbox and email this to us, colleagues or clients.
Rates vary depending on the assignment. We understand the need for a fast turnaround and can normally send over jpgs or a light box within a few minutes! Rates are not set in stone and depend on the model, type of assignment and location; we also understand the need to come in under budget in a tough trading climate!
Over the years we have supplied models and actors for a whole range of campaigns. Our clients include photographers, advertising agencies, production companies and casting directors as well as in-house marketing departments. From appearing on a brochure right through to a featured role in major TV campaign no job is too large or too small. Popular brands including Ford, Lynx, Mothercare, HSBC, Thomson holidays, Butlins, Tesco, Eurostar, Halifax, Land Rover, Gala Bingo and Adidas have all recently used our models or actors.

Anna Clough - Model and Actress
"I am ALWAYS proud to say that I am a model with Source Models. Since moving from NYC I have worked as a professional model in London for over 7 years. In that time I have been signed with many different agencies, none have been as professional, honest or hard working as Source. The bookers are truly lovely and am very very fortunate to have them represent me. I look forward to much continued success with them handling my modelling and acting career."
