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.

Opinion Debate.

Effective immediately, and quite possibly retroactively, we will be adding an interesting twist to our opinion posts. While any model on our staff is free to post an opinion in our opinion section at any time (or possibly, models not on our staff who send in a good post), we will be showing each post to our entire staff for review now. The twist? Opinion counterpoints! If any model disagrees with any aspect of a post, they are welcome to turn the post into a small debate with differing opinions and other-side-of-the-coin points. This will enable our readers to consider alternate viewpoints that may weigh into the conclusion that they arrive at, meaning whether or not they will accept, or reject, the opinion. This will make it interesting, although we see our critics out there making noise that we will be contradicting ourselves, when the case is that we feel that all points, even if they are polar opposites, should weigh in. We would rather certain people accuse us of contradicting ourselves than accuse us of editorial bias. We feel that all the angles of any argument should be put out there with supporting information so the readers can decide for themselves rather than accept what we have to say at face-value (so far, the opinion posted today about advertised model jobs which are spun into searches for those with no experience is just something that we all happen to agree on. No counterpoint yet.....).
Which brings us to an invitation. Just like if any model out there submits a well-written opinion, we will also accept well-written counterpoints (we do reserve the right to refuse any opinion submitted to us with no given cause or reason, however). We will even accept opinions written by photographers and other professionals in the modeling industry.
Ironically, we have had an outstanding invitation for some time for people to post their opinions, but to date we haven’t received any. Why? Simply because most of the so-called professionals out there who hate our site are too stupid to know what they are talking about, and cannot debate well at all. Most of these people have to resort to baseless credibility attacks and threats when they don’t agree with professional opinions, and they are about to find out that such below-the-belt tactics will always fail. Some people are going to hate this site, and we wouldn’t have it any other way. If everyone loved us, then we would be doing something wrong, and would be as impotent and ineffective as those who will ultimately despise us. We are helping to change the modeling industry and are very effective in helping models in their careers. We are the true voice of professional modeling, not just in Tampa Bay, but everywhere else.
Disagree with us? You are welcome to debate if you can. Just don’t try to hit below the belt with cheap threats and baseless credibility attacks unless you want to piss off the very models that you dream of working with. You’ll never really know who we all are, and we are everywhere. We’re always watching, and our opinions actually make a difference. Often, that difference translates to action which will make certain people lose money and ultimately their businesses.
