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.

Raptor 3 Raptor Class web site design specifications

Raptor Class Web site by EOS MediaArts, a Tampa Bay advertising agency and Passinault.Com company.

Raptor Class site 0001.

Commissioned 01.18.06. Some content, site file structure, and code based on the original Tampa Bay Modeling site launched 10.18.04. Site Art Director And Code Architect: C. A. Passinault.

This is the prototype Raptor Class web site designed and commissioned by the EOS MediaArts web team. The site was completed and launched on Wednesday, January 18, 2006, at 9AM EST.

Raptor Class sites are designed for quick navigation to relevant content, enhanced model scam combat operations, industry rate regulation, professional regulation of the model photography services industry, and image marketing for contributing professional photographers. The site is optimized to fight misconceptions in the modeling industry and is aimed squarely at the Tampa Bay market, but the information and tools are effective throughout the industry. Raptor Class sites employ the latest search engine optimization (SEO) technology, and use primary CSS templates and dynamic HTML to provide a content-frame delivery interface without employing frames. Raptor Class web sites can be recognized by their mouse-over menus on the left, title bar on the top, a series of fourteen image thumbnails below that, and a section title under the thumbnails. Main images are displayed to the right, and DHTML content is next to the main menu stack on the left. Text links and banners are underneath. Raptor Class sites are named after birds of prey for their aggressive and fighting nature; Raptor Class sites are engineered to be the most effective model scam fighting sites in the world.

Tampa Bay Modeling Web Site Launched 10/18/04 using undefined 2nd Generation site design class. Redeployed as a 3rd Generation Raptor Class site on 01/18/06, which is a talent resource site design class optimized for online resources, support, SEO performance, and tools, with technology integrated for combating and defending against scams and unethical, unprofessional behavioral patterns in industries; the Tampa Bay Modeling Raptor Class site was the prototype for the design class, and used as a development test bed and for operational shakedown.

About the Tampa Bay Modeling Raptor Class site.

This Raptor Class site is optimized to help regulate industry rates in the Tampa Bay market, and retains several experimental features, such as the successful reverse auction system for modeling industry services. It features an opinion section, which is formatted much like a blog with posts from the models on our staff, and a new-generation mail bag formatted in the same way with refined data organization and cross-reference capabilities. One big addition is the inclusion of pictures in the new design, which serves to help models and photographers market themselves as the pictures are used throughout the Tampa Bay Modeling site. The site can easily facilitate the addition of pictures. A series of micro-thumbnail buttons over the section headers will highlight the newest added images, which leads directly to an online portfolio section. The site hosts articles and other exclusive content, as well as Tampa Bay market optimized versions of material already hosted on sites like Independent Modeling. This will be the second site to feature the ongoing modeling series Born Beautiful, which is about the adventures of Tampa Bay freelance model Cameron Passinault. The versions of the Born Beautiful episodes on Tampa Bay Modeling will have new additions exclusive to the site, too! This site also features model stories and anecdotes, as well as tutorials and interactive tutorials originally developed by Independent Modeling.
The reverse auction system has been improved to include businesses and photographers who want to have models or each other bid for services, balancing out the process and enhancing negotiations. The newest additions to the reverse auction bidding system does not depend on our message boards, either, and can be set up on any message board forum on the Internet.
Tampa Bay Modeling will be working with leading model resource site Independent Modeling and the upcoming Advanced Model to help models and professionals in the modeling industry this year. It will tackle modeling geographically, addressing the industry in the Tampa Bay market and central Florida. Allies at Independent Modeling are a top modeling resource on a state and national level, and Advanced Model will be an industry and world-wide resource and online magazine addressing the Independent Freelance Modeling movement as well as the old, agency-based modeling industry.

The Tampa Bay Modeling web site was originally launched on October 18, 2004. Originally, Tampa Bay Modeling was a simple geographically-marketed modeling resource site designed to service the modeling industry in Tampa Bay. The site was influenced and assisted by popular modeling resource site Independent Modeling, which at that time was effectively slugging it out with model scams and was instrumental in decimating several known scams. The Tampa Bay Modeling site had experimental features and a message board back-end. The site was very docile with its original mission and did not have any negative commentary or model scam fighting capabilities, although a lot of the original content was intended to help models with regulating model portfolio photography and modeling industry rates, in particular.

On January 18, 2006, this new Raptor Class Tampa Bay Modeling site launched. The new site was optimized to fight industry misconceptions and fight scams. As Independent Modeling was reformatted to promote talent and become the ultimate career and industry resource, much of the advanced scam fighting technology and the more controversial tools developed by them was licensed to us. Old features like the message board were discontinued.
