THOMSON HOLIDAYS - book Simon, Andrew, Scott, Grant, Alex, Amanda, Suzi and Karin

12/11/2011

As a commercial agency our models get to work for so many different companies. Banks, clothing companies, medical products, cars, the jobs are varied and some involve travel all over globe.
Although Source Models do not specialise in any particular sector we do supply a lot of models for Travel companies, Holiday parks and Cruise companies. One such company is Thomson Holidays, one of the leading suppliers of holiday packages in the world. September and October saw quite a few of our models jet off to sunnier climates having been cast to appear in a number of shoots for different brands in the Thomson holiday family. 

First off was Simon Spalding , Andrew Swaterige and Karin P who flew off to Greece and shot for the Spirit Cruise brand over 4 days in September. Later on in the month Scott Virgo Suzi Langhorne and Alex Cameron went out to Majorca and will appear for the Couples and Gold brand. Finally Amanda Grant  Grant Clarke and Matt Bates shot for the Sensatori, Holiday Village and Splash brands over 4 days in Sharm el Sheikh, Egypt.

Although it sounds glamorous models are quite often expected to be ‘on call’ through the day, they may shoot ‘sunrise’ on a cruise ship, various shoots throughout the day then be available for ‘Dinner’ shots in the evening. It is rare to get a ‘day off’ on those shoots and in most cases models are expected to work longer hours than they would in the UK. Saying that models tend to enjoy the trips away as it means continuous work and leaving the British weather behind for a few days.

Models chosen need to reflect the ‘target’ customer of the holiday brand. We book lots of kids for holiday parks, adults from twenty something’s right through to models in there 50’s,60’s and 70’s! A good commercial agency will have models in all age ranges and we make sure that no matter what the holiday brief we can supply Ad Agents, Photographers and Casting Directors with a good choice of models and actors in all age groups.
