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.

Free Tampa Modeling Resource Educates About Modeling Scams

Tampa, FL — June 4, 2008 — With recent reports of modeling and talent scams in the Tampa modeling industry, a free modeling web site is already available to teach models what to look for so they can identify modeling scams before they are taken advantage of. Tampa Bay Modeling has become a popular career tool for professional models, and is also an unequaled source of modeling information for those who aspire to become models.

"Tampa Bay Modeling was originally conceived by a group of professional models to be a modeling career resource web site with a focus on the Tampa Bay region." Director C. A. Passinault stated, "In four years, it had become much more than that. It is now leading the fight against modeling scams, and it does so by teaching models how to identify modeling scams by defining their actions, instead of naming names. Since you are what you do, this has proven to be very effective, and even the latest scams encountered in the industry have already been defined in our free modeling scam analysis database."
"Tampa Bay Modeling has excellent search engine performance for most modeling-relevant terms, so there really isn't any reason for anyone who is online looking for modeling information to be scammed," Passinault reported, "Simply put, you cannot be taken advantage of by modeling scams if you know what to look for."
