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.

Please read our DISCLAIMER, and have a great day!

If you wish to use this site as a professional resource, you must read and agree to this.

Tampa Bay Modeling is a free resource for the freelance independent model, but we do retain and exercise certain legal rights.

Images and text, in whole or part, may not be copied, reproduced, or exchanged without our express written permission. We have a certain legal license which permits the independent model to use our legal forms, providing certain conditions are met. If an agency or photographer wishes to use these properties, they must write us for permission. Legal forms may not be reverse engineered, or modified, in any way. If any party does not comply with these terms, they may be subject to a copyright infringement lawsuit that begins with collateral damages of a $250,000.00 fine, imprisonment, or worse. All of our material is encrypted with Pandora technology. Pandora technology enables evidence that will be admissible in a court of law if any party decides to reverse engineer, alter, or otherwise take our intellectual property and pass it off as their own, or attempt to use it a fashion that circumvents the legal conditions imposed on the content of this site. We will aggressively protect and maintain our rights. Those rights are what makes a resource like the Tampa Bay Modeling web site possible. All other properties are legally enabled providing it is in the context of professional Internet viewing ONLY. If you are not an aspiring model with the real intent of starting a career, a career model with the intent of becoming independent, an ethical model photographer, a business that books models, or a member of the media, you are not permitted to view or use the information presented on this site.

Enjoy what the freedom of speech makes possible. Enjoy this resource, as it is our sincere desire that it will enhance the career of the freelance independent model.


The legal license which permits the use of our legal forms and properties comes with the following conditions:

A.
The party using these resources is a professional model. The model referenced must not have an exclusive arrangement with any agency or mother agency. Exclusive contracts must be legally dissolved before using our properties, as such usage is a direct conflict of interest.

B.
The party using these properties is not involved, in any way, with the adult entertainment industry. These include "models" who do work in soft pornography, "massage" parlors, and exotic dancing.

C.
Forms may be printed and used one at a time. The model may not do mass printings and stockpile paperwork generated by this site. This is not strictly in our best interest, but the interest of the model, too. Due to the changing nature of this industry, material on this site may be updated with no warning. If a model were to stockpile print outs, there is a good chance that their forms would be outdated as they were being used. If we discover flaws in any of our material over the course of time, we will make corrections and upload updates.

D.
The format or text of the form may not be changed in ANY way. This means that we recommend skipping the word processor and printing the form directly from the web site. If any errors are noted, such as typos, we need to know about it. We will correct errors as they are discovered, so that the forms are print perfect from the web.
Copyright information on the forms may not be altered or removed. Each page must have our copyright on it, such as "(C) Copyright 2005 Tampa Bay Modeling". This includes ANY information concerning "Tampa Bay Modeling" , or references to our web site address. Removing this information is considered altering our property, and is a direct violation of the license governing the use of our intellectual property.

E.

F.
Tampa Bay Modeling can not be held legally responsible for the use or misuse of any of our intellectual properties. Printing, reading, viewing, and use of our properties is a consent to these terms, and waives us from any and all legal liability. This includes information presented on this site, business referrals to other companies, and legal forms. Our legal forms are in actual use by professional models, and we have had no knowledge of any legal issues that have arisen from their use. As such, we recommend, that, if in doubt, please consult an attorney who specializes in entertainment, business, or copyright law.

G.
Tampa Bay Modeling can not, and will not, be liable for any business referrals. Businesses that we recommend are ones that are recommended by the models that advise us. To the best of our knowledge, all business referrals are all highly recommended by a majority of professional, independent models. As such, once you begin dealing with them, Tampa Bay Modeling is no longer a part of any business transactions that you conduct.

H.
Tampa Bay Modeling can not, and will not, be liable for any job offers contracted through our job board. We do not have the time to check out the job bulletins coming in, and all offers are unconfirmed. It is the responsibility of the model to do their homework before contacting the companies responsible for the job offer. We have articles on how to set up meetings, perform background checks, check business references, and negotiate contracts in our Features section. Please study these articles and use the information. As Tampa Bay Modeling is NOT an agency, we do not employ bookers, and do not make money through booked referrals. The job board is a free resource for companies offering jobs and models seeking them. This said, we reserve the right to refuse or reject any job posting that is obviously unethical in nature, and we will not knowingly post any offers for nude or pornographic work.
