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.

Being Nice.

The Tampa Bay Modeling site has been a very impressive modeling resource site. Serving the Tampa Bay market, we’re very proud of our shiny new site and the potential that its technology has to revolutionize this and other markets in the modeling industry.
Change, however, is inevitable. We continue to evolve.
Why is it that we seem to bash people over the head, beating dead horses as we state the obvious? We’re really not that mean. I admit, some of our comments on the site, ahem, have been a little less than professional in our strong desire to get our point across. It is ironic that, while we state that many try too hard to work in the industry, that we try too hard to get simple points across. This changes now.
We’ve been in meetings all weekend, and some of us have not been satisfied with the aggressive nature that this site has taken in recent weeks. It’s great to have the biggest guns and sharp teeth, but not so great when we are firing and biting all of the time. We have flexed our muscles and demonstrated what this site is capable of. It is time for the guns to fall silent and the sharp teeth to melt back into a friendly smile.
By no means does this mean that we are disarming. Quite the contrary. Most of this site will continue to be optimized to combat model scams and the blatant misinformation that exists in the modeling industry. We will continue to refine and add to our scam fighting arsenal, researching new countermeasures to the issues that come against models today and tomorrow. The technology of the Tampa Bay Modeling site will continue to be unmatched in the world. We continue to stand behind the opinions that we have expressed and want everyone to note that we have made few mistakes in our market assessments. While we haven’t pointed fingers at anyone and have not attacked anyone directly, we regret it if we have offended anyone, as it was not our intentions for people to read too much into what we were saying.
The teeth will be kept sharpened and the big guns loaded. We will, however, endeavor to use tact from now on as we express our feelings, knowledge, and ideas. We’ve been hard on some people; model portfolio photographers in the Tampa Bay market most of all. I was reminded recently that some of our best friends were professional photographers, and that most photographers in this market are in fact honest professionals who do talented work and stand behind models. The last thing that we want is to add to the perception that photographers are up to no good, as those photographers are indeed the minority. The same goes for model and talent agencies. While we encourage models to find and book work on their own, the model and talent agency is, to some models, the only way. We respect that, and respect the models who choose the traditional path.
Our new attention to professional tact and public relations will extend to our new mail bag section, too. Monica Stevens has agreed to be nicer to the wonderful people sending us E-Mail. After all, she’s not really mean, either. Likewise, we will also be screening out E-Mail that may be offensive to some readers. This means that the mail bags will be more constructive and will come off as more professional, and we’re still open to friendly debates.
Here’s to walking softly and smiling more with our hands behind our back. Here’s to being nice with the most advanced modeling resource site the industry has ever seen.
