Take that step in 2020

One of the most fulfilling things about working at Face HQ is seeing people and their careers grow and flourish - we have a lot of people on our books that we currently represent who started out in our junior division who are now being represented as a part of our lifestyle division! As an agency we are here to steer people's careers in the right direction and help them get to where they want to be and so we thought we would share a few of our supporting artists' journeys and where they are today... 

Established model & actor Daniel Bakken started out on our books as a supporting artist. His desire to learn and throw himself into any situation and out of his comfort zone was amazing to work with. Seeing his potential, we welcomed Daniel to our modelling division where he instantly flourished. Soon after he self-taped for an Adidas commercial, the Casting Director LOVED him and he got booked. This saw the start to what is a very successful career for Daniel today... Since then he has flew to Barcelona to shoot for ‘Anytime Fitness’, he travels all around the country working for brands such as; Slaters, The Broadway Shopping Centre, Smiffys Fancy Dress and Heineken to name but a few. His time spent on set as a model and supporting artist lead to Daniel quickly developing a passion for acting and his career to date has seen him appear in Ackley Bridge, Hollyoaks, Feature Film Ruth The Musical as well as video & commercials for big brands such as Sofology, Samsung and Warburtons .

Amy Peer had a similar journey to Daniels. After a few months of being represented as a supporting artist, Amy came into our office to get updated headshots - it was here that our founder met Amy in person and saw her potential in front of the camera as a model and insisted she started building a portfolio so that she could kick-start her career as a model. We sent her on her first test shoot and soon after she was booking jobs with some of our top clients such as; Tog 24, Harry Hall, KFC, Britvic, Adidas and Veromia to name a few.

A lot of the models on our books started out this way - like Shelly Dulieu & Tomas Bersier who work week in, week out for us shooting for some of our biggest clients. 

So, if you are open minded, prepared to leave your comfort zone, be eager to learn, work hard and take that first step, who knows where life may take you…
