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.

PICTURE SUBMISSION - AGREEMENT

Photograph by: Aurora PhotoArts Tampa Bay Photography and Design. A Tampa Bay modeling portfolio photography company.Terra, a model photographed in Brandon, a Tampa Bay, Florida location, during a modeling portfolio photography session by Tampa Bay photography company Aurora PhotoArts Tampa Photography and Design. Photograph by modeling portfolio photographer Chris Passinault.

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

Pictured: Terra posing for a picture in Brandon, Florida, for her modeling portfolio photography session with photographer Chris Passinault.

Picture Description: This is Terra, a model from Orange county who traveled to the Tampa Bay area to obtain her modeling portfolio from Tampa photographer Chris Passinault. This is the third look in her modeling portfolio photography session, and it is the last look shot in a Brandon location before they departed for locations in more rural areas such as Riverview, Ruskin, and Summerfield. Since this is a modeling portfolio session, all looks were shot on location, which is the most effective for commercial modeling portfolios.

Tampa Bay Location: Brandon, Florida.

Photography Session Date: June 20, 2011. See photograph information at the relevant Tampa Photographer web site for information.

Photography Session Notes: A talented model and a great shoot, Terra was a lot of fun to work with. This day was a hot one, with temperatures in the Tampa Bay area in the high 90's (F), and heat indexes of about 100. At this part of the shoot, it was early in the day. What would come later was more grueling, with a lot of walking and shooting in the heat.
Another note is the watermarking technology used in this image, which was added on July 5, 2011, to Tampa Bay Modeling. All future pictures added to Tampa Bay Modeling will use this format. The format was originally developed for the Mosaic Class web site, and was adapted to the current Raptor 3 variant of the Raptor Class site used by Tampa Bay Modeling. The format includes a copyright indicator in the picture itself, as well as a logo watermark which cannot be easily removed from the image. The image is also rendered at a low, web-friendly resolution of 72 DPI/PPI, which minimizes potential liability because there is a lot less for anyone to take. This format discourage theft because the watermark as not cost-effective, or easy, to bypass. The composition is strong in this photography from Passinault, and to crop out the watermark would create a less effective composition, as well as leave little left of a low resolution image.
