I first met James at a studio shoot back in November 2014. It was my first experience of modelling and wasn’t sure what to expect. However, I was put at ease very early on by James’ kind nature and his ability to give his clients the confidence in front of a camera. Fast forward to now and I am still in contact with him and he has always been there for me. I know that every time I have had a shoot or work of some kind, he has always been the one to provide me with helpful advice and knowledge. Without James, I would not have been able to obtain the opportunities that I have done. I am excited to be a part of this up and coming agency that he has worked so hard to create and I cannot wait to work with him yet again. If you are looking for an agency that is honest and looks after their clients, then Little Big Door is the one to join.

We met James about two years ago when my son Hanniel and I were just starting out on his modelling journey. He was our adviser and helped me get the right package for us. From that first meeting he has always seen potential in my son becoming a model. He put us in touch with all the right people and that is very easy for him, because he knows a lot of people in the industry.
When I was looking for modelling agency I would message or call him and he was always ready to give the right advice. He also advised me to set up a social media account to help promote him and keep in touch with other modelling families.
Over the years we have kept in contacting, and I would keep him updated with different jobs that Hanniel has done like internet ads, promotional ads and a music video. He is a very hands-on person with his clients, and only wants the best for them. I would recommend his services to friends and family.

In the summer of 2016 I had the privilege of meeting James. Starting off in acting with no previous members of my family being in the industry and only doing amateur productions and not really knowing anyone, James took me under his wing showing me the ropes and relationships I would need to succeed.
He understood my needs of what I wanted to aim for and with this he approached four agencies which I was successful with all. He took time out of his schedule to get to know me and what I wanted; we went for dinner and lunch to talk about this. He knew that I was talented enough for stage and film getting me the agencies that did both, he even got me agencies for modelling.
I’ve always said from day one that I would rather have someone tell me something that I can improve on or tell me that I shouldn’t do something than someone who just says everything’s excellent. James has stuck to his promise and been completely honest from the outset. He’s told me when to improve yet giving me praise when it’s due. I still find it amazing that I can call him up anytime of the day to ask him a question no matter how big or small and he generally wants to help.
I have had many opportunities in my short career so far including auditioning for a main role in Broadway, starring in a Bafta nominated film and now finishing a self written album and working with producer of the year, a very successful manager and many record labels. Even though James didn’t necessarily get me those jobs himself he is always there for advice about marketing and contacting and I do owe a lot to him.
We have an amazing working relationship where he will be strict about an approach to work but then chatting like old friends, he’s the perfect man to help people break into the industry to give good positive yet realistic advice and opportunities.
Like I said before I owe a lot of my work to James. Thank you for all of your hard work and time.

James is a passionate animal lover and supporter of causes. Like us, he uses the same ethics in his work in every aspect. James is a focused individual who has a passion for all things people and pets. He believes in people and their goals in life, put simply he is a life-line. Having known James for around 30 years, I know him and his team will be the best at what they do. He UNDERSTANDS people and those surrounding… it’s as simple as that.
