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.


Photograph by: Aurora PhotoArts Tampa Bay Photography and Design. A Tampa Bay modeling portfolio photography company.Megan, a model in the Brandon area during an Espy model testing session.

Photographer: Tampa photographer Chris Passinault, lead photographer for Aurora PhotoArts Tampa Photography and Design.

Pictured: Megan posing for a head shot in Brandon, Florida, for her Espy model testing photography session with photographer Chris Passinault.

Picture Description: This is a picture taken on September 6, 2003, of aspiring model Megan, taken during an Espy model testing program photography session in Brandon, Florida. Espy, which is Latin for “I see”, is a long-running model testing program from Aurora PhotoArts, dating back to 2001. Espy was way ahead of its time. For 2013 and 2014, Espy has been overhauled and improved in every way; it is now fully compatible with other services from Aurora PhotoArts. The photography part of the program, however, remains essentially the same, as it was good to begin with.
The modern Espy, like its earlier version, is not meant to be a modeling portfolio photography session, and does not give the participants enough looks, or pictures, for a full portfolio. Although the pictures can be used for a modeling portfolio, and the full files are made available for that purpose, as they are modeling portfolio quality, the purpose of this model testing photography session is to evaluate a prospective model.
The Espy model testing program by Aurora PhotoArts has a long history and a rich legacy, going back over 12 years at the time of this writing.
Although details of the Espy model testing program from 2003 are still classified, the details of the new program are even more tightly guarded, and are only released to clients.

Tampa Bay Location: Brandon, Florida.

Photography Session Date: September 6, 2003. See photograph information at the relevant Tampa Photographer web site for information.

Photography Session Notes: Although most of the information about this Espy model testing session has been explained above, it must be noted that this particular session had a total of three models participating. Some Espy sessions had as many as six aspiring models participating.
The current Espy model testing program is refined over its predecessor, and is capable of handling more models. There are other differences, too, but the programs are largely the same.
There are notes pertaining to this photograph and this page, too.
Although the photograph used in this picture is 10 years old, it works. This image, and its format, will be the last of its kind here on Tampa Bay Modeling, as new image templates are in development for the 2014 Tampa Bay Modeling site, which will be largely brand new as Tampa Bay Modeling celebrates its 10th year. The new image file format will be derived from the new Tampa Bay Film image format, using the latest technologies and design formats developed for Aurora PhotoArts. While this image uses new watermarking technology developed for the new Aurora PhotoArts Mosaic Class site circa 2011, it is an outdated, old format, and is now completely obsolete.
Likewise, the format of this photograph information page will be retired after this post. We wil be using a new format which is simplified to reduce the risk of duplicate content issues, while using an enhanced version of this format as a guide rule for formatting and structuring the content description.
