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.



New Format

Hello everyone! I am finally back from by working vacation in the Carribean, and now that the August is halfway over and they are throwing a new mail bag format at me, this mail bag will be a little small, especially since my September mail bag is due on Friday, September 1, roughly two and a half weeks from now (It is 1 AM on August 14 as I write this, and it’s just me, a cricket just outside the open bedroom window on my Hyde Park balcony, a warm breeze, and a bathrobe... I really need to get to bed soon.... God, love that full moon out there).
For now, let’s get this mail bag going. As I begin, I would like to thank French Fry. His letter, as always, brings a smile to my face, and as I wind down from my delayed flight back, I needed it (what in the %^#$ is going on with the airports the last few days? Oh, yes, those silly terrorists and the typical overreaction by everyone- Do they really think that we are any safer with everyone acting stupid in the airports?). Oh, well. I am back, I had fun, and it’s back to work on my favorite mail bag job.

01. Letter Of The Month: The French Fry talks about the Tampa Bay market.
02. Will we fight Tampa Model and Talent Agencies?
03. A model named David and his unique bed (again).
04. Another allegation that we are some sort of model scam.

Well, that’s it for now. I’ll see everyone in a couple of weeks with the arrival of the September 2006 mail bag. September will be a busy month for me because I will be celebrating the fifth anniversary of Independent Modeling with the professional models on their staff, our staff, and with other models throughout Tampa Bay and Florida! This site has really made a difference, and Tampa Bay Modeling would not even exist if it were not for Independent Modeling and other modeling sites such as Florida Models. I’m very excited to help my friends celebrate, especially when I happen to know that the last five years is nothing compared to the next five years. I can’t wait!!!! Anyhow, in closing, how do you like this new mail bag format? Is it easier to use? On my end, it’s a little more work, so I would like to know if it is worth it for you.
The mail bag might be written in a rather more creative style starting in September. We will be writing it more like a story, and I will be getting a writing assistant who will review a video tape of me reading E-Mails and replying. It will be more interesting than this sounds, I can assure you...... the mail bag will be written more like a story with my reactions described and my replies presented in a more creative fashion, as well as my surroundings and other aspects described in detail. If some of you think that this is a work of fiction, I’m sure that you won’t know what to think when this mail bag become more of an interactive story where you all can participate. No letters column has ever been done like this, and I am rather intrigued by the potential and the possibilities. You will all be much more entertained than before, and if it gets more models to read what I have to say, I’m all for that. Don’t quote me on this, though, as we are still not sure if we are going to do this, and it may not be too compatible with our mail archive database.
With that, it is time for me to get some sleep. My cricket friend turned in hours ago, and the breeze has become cool and damp with the nearing dawn.
