First modeling portfolio picture of a Tampa model on Tampa Bay Modeling. All portfolio photographs, unless otherwise noted, by C. A. Passinault, lead photographer for Aurora PhotoArts Tampa Photography and Design, as well as Director of Tampa Bay Modeling. C. A. Passinault is a top photographer, as well as a modeling expert.Second model photograph on Tampa Bay Modeling. Click on the image for an anecdote of the modeling shoot which produced this picture.In this third picture, you can see why the Tampa Bay area is one of the best in the world for modeling portfolio development work. Photograph by Tampa photographer C. A. Passinault.Image four of our online portfolio of another Tampa model. This photograph, if we are not mistaken, was taken on location in the Tampa Bay area. The best modeling portfolio photographs are location shots.This is another great picture. This is the fifth model photograph on Tampa Bay Modeling. Pictures featured in our thumbnail array may not be the same as those of models which are in our featured model section, but often, they are one and the same.Unmatched in any Florida modeling market. The quality of this image is excellent! Photograph by C. A. Passinault, our resident photographer and modeling expert.Another top Tampa model gets their look on. The best models can obtain a wide range of looks, as you can see when you look at other pictures of this model!Is it any wonder why more and more companies and art directors are booking independent models without going through an agency? Proof that you can be a professional model, with a lucrative career, without being dependent upon an agency to find and book modeling jobs!Another awesome photograph of a Tampa model by modeling photographer C. A. Passinault, lead photographer Aurora PhotoArts, and director of Tampa Bay Modeling.For modeling portfolio work in the Tampa Bay area, nothing beats location work. Studio photography is not nearly as cost effective, or appropriate, for modeling portfolio work.Keep in mind that this picture, for a modeling portfolio, was taken by a qualified modeling portfolio photographer, C. A. Passinault, for a specialized, professional market, which is modeling. A wedding photographer or a portrait studio will not be able to give models what they need for an effective modeling portfolio, as you have to know what you are doing!This is the 12th picture in our Tampa Bay Modeling online portfolio. Yet another Tampa model shows a marketable look in their portfolio. The best models are capable of the most looks, and are not locked into a single look!Agency model or independent model? It doesnt matter, anymore, especially in Tampa Bay. Professional models like this one can be booked without going through an agency, saving both the model and the job agency fees.Modeling portfolios need at least six looks, and by looks, we mean different looks. A composite cards needs at least five, on average, with a headshot on the front, and four different looks on the back of the comp card. This Tampa model is demonstrating a marketable look right now, in this photography. Picture by C. A. Passinault.

This page contains rate information for businesses that are interested in investing in ad space on the Tampa Bay Modeling web site.
Unlike other web sites which sell ads based on click through numbers, this site sells ad space on a single page or single content property basis. The key to how your banner ad account will be utilized and billed is in the code at the bottom of each page. For example, if the banner is on a page coded A1-M, it is a high traffic page (A1) denoted as a menu (-M). The banner would only be on that page for the duration of the account. If the page is coded A1-C (and this is an example, as a "C" allocation would rarely be an A1; It would an A2 or lower), then it would be a high traffic (A1) article, tutorial, or other content piece (C) consisting of several pages. These pages would all be counted as one in billing, and the banner would be on the bottom of each of them.
Before we confuse anyone, here is a table of page rank rate codes and explanations.


A1: A main part of the site. Highest traffic and ad exposure. Usually a menu page.
A2: High traffic part of the site. A submenu or highly featured article.
A3: Above average traffic. Normally an article.
A4: Average traffic. Deeper within the site structure within subdirectories.
A5: A low traffic part of the site. The rates are lower, too.
A6: The slowest part of a site. A6 pages are rare, and usually denote an archive which is rarely accessed. Of course, the rates are inexpensive, too.


After the page rank indicator is the page type. This is represented by either "M" for Menu or "C" for content. The page type indicator, after a hyphen, is important for one reason. If it is an "M", your banner will only be used on that page. If it a "C", then it is site content which may be several pages long, as long articles are broken down into separate pages to make reading and bookmarking them easier. If a business wants to sponsor a particular article of, let's say six pages, it would not be cost effective or fair to bill them for all six pages, since the article is technically one "banner page" organized into six. So, if it is a "C" page, the banner would show up on all the pages within the article at the billed rate of one page.
Now that we have explained the way the codes are formatted, let's go on to advertising rates. Each page rank has a monthly rate and the minimum months that must be purchased. The banner will be on the page (or pages if it is a "C") for the months purchased. Each of these page rank indicator rate codes have minimum months that must be paid at the time of purchase in full.

These rates are good until Spring 2005.


Billing Rate Code - Monthly Rate


A1 - $100.00
A2 - $75.00
A3 - $50.00
A4 - $30.00
A5 - $20.00
A6 - $15.00


See if you can read this coding:
A3-C
That's right. The code fits an article that has above average web traffic. Since it is a "C", the advertised banner is posted on every page of the article. The advertiser "sponsors" the article. If the article is on a topic covering what the advertiser is selling, the ad is more effective because the possibility that it is being seen by the target audience is higher.
