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.

OPEN CALLS: COMPANIES SEEKING INDEPENDENT MODELS; NO SPECIFIC JOBS

The Tampa Bay Modeling open call section of the modeling job board is a database of companies and art directors who are open to receiving composite cards and cover letters from models for upcoming modeling jobs. Please note that, unless these companies have a job listed below, that they do not have any current modeling jobs. Since this listing will eventually be quite large, these companies will not be listed here. Once companies and art director contacts are listed, we will link to this section.
This open call section, and this modeling job board, is not to be used by modeling agencies. Companies listed here are already aware that they don’t have to use agencies, and about all of the benefits. Prepare to put your claims in writing if you try to convince them otherwise; you have been warned.

12/10/11 - This is an active beta test board with minimal functionality. All features are not operational. Thank you. Links and format likely to change soon, and may do so without warning.

Welcome to the beta test version of the Tampa Bay Modeling job board. This beta will be testing Independent Modeling’s modeling job board before it launches with the new site in the coming weeks. Once the improved, fully operational modeling job board launches on Independent Modeling, the advanced format will be adapted here, as well as on Florida Modeling Career.
We are now accepting modeling job posts, and it’s a free service. There is no obligation to buy anything to use this modeling job board and the Tampa Bay Modeling site.
If anyone uses a modeling job as bait to sell you something, or they require you to buy anything in order to be considered for a job, report them and walk away. To be legitimate, you must be considered for a job without any obligation to buy anything. If they change the terms of the job without warning, or the job is not worth doing, feel free to decline. Be aware of what fair rates are, and your value as a model. If you are a new model, and are not sure about what you are doing, please avoid any high risk modeling jobs, such as glamour modeling.

Modeling job information is exclusively licensed for use on Tampa Bay Modeling, Independent Modeling, and Florida Modeling career. Unauthorized use, theft, and appropriation is not permitted. We have countermeasures in place to discourage theft and misuse of the information on this board.
All modeling job posters are aware that we do not withhold job information, contact information, and that we do not use modeling jobs as bait in order to pull some bait and switch and try to sell models something. This is a free modeling job board for models, with no obligation to by anything in order to use it. All posters are informed that unethical parties and modeling scams use job information to bait models, and they do not want any part of a scam. Does anyone else offer the same terms? We didn’t think so.

TAMPA MODELS: PLEASE READ BEFORE USING THIS MODELING JOB LEAD BOARD. AVOID MODELING JOB SCAMS. ALSO, GET PAID WHAT YOU ARE REALLY WORTH AS A PROFESSIONAL INDEPENDENT MODEL; LEARN WHAT FAIR MODELING JOB RATES ARE, AND STICK TO THEM. DO NOT SELL YOURSELF SHORT!

The Tampa Bay Modeling modeling job board is a regional modeling job lead listing offered free of charge. There is no obligation to buy any product or service to use this board; this is not for advertising modeling jobs, but to present free leads. This modeling job board does not cost us anything, other than a little time, to make it available to professional models, which leaves us no incentive to re coupe overhead (If someone pays money to advertise a modeling job, it is often a scam designed to sell you services by baiting you with a job offer, especially since they have to make back the money that they have expended). There is NO OBLIGATION for any model to buy any product or service advertised, or offered, on this web site in order to use our modeling job board; we offer all modeling job information as-is, and do not withhold any information such as contact information (modeling scams will often steal modeling job information, post it on their web site for models, withhold contact information, and then make the model sign up for their web site before the model can obtain information on how to contact the modeling job. The model is then sold useless, overpriced services via their membership information, and they are obligated to buy those services before they are referred to jobs; this bait in switch is a deceptive business practice, and it is a modeling scam). This modeling job board is a Tampa Bay regional version of the main modeling job board on Independent Modeling, and it is a part of the Independent Modeling modeling job board.

WARNING: Read up on MODELING JOB SCAMS so that you can learn to recognize and avoid them. Do not buy anything from anyone advertising any modeling job, or any modeling job. Never pay any fees to be considered for a modeling job, as there should never be any purchase necessary to be considered for any job. Please avoid modeling job leads where people can post offers anonymously (make sure that you can identify them, and that they reveal who they are), and please avoid modeling jobs which are advertised in the newspaper, or on the radio. If you see any modeling job lead on this web site anywhere else, please verify it with the modeling jobs, as modeling scams may steal modeling job information from this board to use in bating models for whatever they are trying to sell.

TAMPA BAY MODELING JOB BOARD UPDATES

UPDATE 02/04/11: A Beta test version of the Tampa Bay Modeling modeling job board is now online (especially since we've been getting job posts). We will be testing Independent Modeling's modeling job board before it launches; after the Independent Modeling modeling job board launches with its adjustments, those improvements will be retro-added to this board. All modeling job boards will tie in together.

This section will activate in early 2011, when the Independent Modeling modeling job board is fully operational. Links to Tampa modeling job-relevant posts on the Independent Modeling modeling job board will be listed here, along with support links mirroring those on the Independent Modeling board.

NOTE 12/02/10: We are weeks away from re-launching our modeling job board. We expect to have it operational then. Our modeling job board will be for Tampa modeling jobs, and it will cross reference in "channels" with parallel modeling job boards on Florida Modeling Career, Advanced Model, and on Independent Modeling itself. The main modeling job board for all of our sites will be on Independent Modeling. Additionally, the featured models on all of our sites will link directly to our modeling job boards.

As a final note, please be patient with the slow updates on our modeling job boards. Due to the slow economy, there are very few legitimate modeling jobs out there. Many, many modeling job offers are modeling job scams. Our research indicates, for example, that as many as 90% of the modeling job offers on free online classified sites are scams, either set up to rip off models or to exploit them in some way (and some are downright illegal, with con artists committing felonies by acting as a modeling and talent agency or agent without being licensed). Other modeling job ads on there are wastes of time (models needed, but won't get paid for their work) and too risky (models needed to do nude and glamour work at low pay or NO PAY). Models: If you are a professional model who has a modeling portfolio and composite cards, you need to get paid for modeling jobs (collaborative work with other established professionals are not modeling jobs)! Also, avoid all modeling job offers which claim that "no experience is necessary"; those modeling jobs are often scams. If you are an aspiring model with no experience, or are a model who is just starting out and who does not have a portfolio, YOU HAVE NO BUSINESS TRYING TO BOOK MODELING JOBS OR TO BOOK WORK AS A MODEL (and if you get scammed by a modeling job scam after we tried to warn you, you deserve to be scammed, in our opinion! Too bad those "artistic nudes" that you took with the aspiring photographer will come back to haunt you and trash any potential that you have for a good modeling career.....)! You have to invest in a modeling portfolio and career tools first, from professionals who are not advertising modeling jobs to bait you or who are referred to you by a modeling agency. Models are flagging ads off, and the scams are being reported, but that's not enough. Models needs our modeling job boards, on Tampa Bay Modeling, Florida Modeling Career, and Independent Modeling, which will have more legitimate modeling jobs than any other modeling site.

Find professional models! There is no charge to post modeling jobs or to respond to them. This modeling job board is free, and more art directors and businesses are realizing that model and talent agencies are now optional. You must read and agree to our terms of use before using this board. Please note that some posts may not be actual jobs and may be set up to test models. These posts will help models identify certain model job scams and will lead to more information.

We are not liable for any business dealings contracted or contacts made through the use of this board. Use of this board and the information on this site waives us from any and all liability and claims of damages. Parties using this site do so at their own risk. Model scam information and Reverse Auction Information is on a separate web site, and is provided as a courtesy of leading model resource web site Tampa Bay Modeling. Opinions expressed on Tampa Bay Modeling and content are not those of Independent Modeling, and we are not responsible for anything on web sites that we link to.

All Tampa modeling job offers posted on Tampa Bay Modeling will be cross-posted to the Florida Modeling Career Florida modeling jobs board and the modeling jobs board of Independent Modeling. If you have a modeling job, however, don't wait. Send your modeling job offer to us now!

All modeling job posts, information, and contact information are owned by Tampa Bay Modeling, Florida Modeling Career, Advanced Model, Independent Modeling, and the companies behind the job posts. Unauthorized copying, reproduction, or theft of job leads will be addressed, up to, and including, aggressive legal action; additionally, our modeling resource sites are well-known, and well-read, and it's likely that anyone whom you attempt to sell stolen job leads to, or use those job leads to bait, will be aware of the true source of the modeling job lead, rightfully destroying your credibility and inspiring them to report you. All modeling job posters are educated about modeling job scams and modeling scams who would use their modeling job leads to bait models; all of our posters are instructed to verify the source of the information which prompt models to contact them, and they will ignore models who contact them from anywhere other than through our modeling resource sites and other authorized posts. Modeling and talent agencies who use our modeling job boards as a source of modeling job leads for their bookers may be wasting their time, as the modeling job posters are aware that they save a lot of money and time by booking models without going through a modeling agency; it will be a very hard sell, and job posters are educated about modeling agencies and their claims. If any modeling agency tries to claim that their models are more reliable than professional independent models who respond to modeling job posts on our modeling job boards, we strongly suggest that you get that claim in writing, and hold them to it, especially since you are spending more money than you have to by obtaining models by going through a modeling agency. If you wish to evaluate the risk of booking any model, there are quick, free, and easy ways of doing so, such as Independent Modeling's Risk Analysis System (RAS).
