MOT Models

About us

MOT Models is a leading London model agency, providing excellent models to top photographers, advertisers, designers and production companies. You will recognize many MOT models in so many worldwide advertising and commercial campaigns.

MOT was established in 1985 and rapidly became a byword in the industry for expertise, friendliness, fairness and efficiency with the great majority of our work being obtained through referral. Our reputation has been hard-won and is one that we are always striving to improve.

MOT is a broad-based agency with models of all ages, ethnicities and types. One thing they all share in common is the quality of their work and their commitment to making sure that the assignment is successful whether it be for a big world-wide campaign or a brochure for a small new company. Whilst many agencies are now trying to imitate the MOT approach, arguably none can match the combination of model and service offered by MOT.

MOT has an enviable reputation for developing new talent. Many of our leading models have been with us through their education and into full-time careers as models. The agency provides a nurturing, considerate and thoughtful management that leads to a good and lengthy career.

The MOT team is located in 2 characterful offices, one just outside of London and about 30 minutes north of Heathrow airport and the second right in the centre of the city in Mayfair.

Our Head Office in Berkhamsted handles bookings and marketing for MOT and all of the administrative support for both MOT and sister agency, Zone Models. And yes, the office really is a converted stable as the address suggests. The main hall where the carriages previously were kept forms an excellent booking room for up to 12 bookers and the hay lofts at either end provide our accounting and meeting accommodation. There is a calmness that belies the level of activity.

Zone Models is located on New Bond Street right in the centre of London and is a high end commercial agency. Clients are warmly welcomed to walk in, although prior warning may be best to ensure that the right person is there to meet with you. It is open from 9am until 6pm weekdays.

The New Bond Street office also provides walk-in facilities for new models, where you are seen quickly and advised as to whether we can help you. If you wish to visit us for this purpose, please drop-in any day of the week between 10am-12pm.

MOT Models is one of the oldest established agencies in the UK but is still at the forefront of the model industry, bringing about innovation and setting the highest of ethical standards. Although the agency was sold in 2006 to a large Dutch company, it was subsequently bought back into private ownership in 2009 and remains a very friendly, helpful and professional agency with the feel of a family. The four directors and shareholders of the agency all work operationally and have over 70 years' experience in the agency between them. It is this level of experience that ensures that the agency maintains high and consistent levels - an agency that clients and models can trust.

Please note that MOT Models never uses individuals to scout for new models.
