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.

April Showers.

NEXT - PREVIOUS - NEWS

You know what they say - March comes in like a Lamb and out like a Lion, and April showers begin as spring gets into its groove. Well, there is a lot going on here at Tampa Bay Modeling, and this spring ought to be the one to watch as our site gets a ton of updates, new features, and some improvements on some old ideas that have proven themselves.

MAIL BAG
Monica Stevens had the plug pulled on her popular monthly Mail Bag last fall, and now it is coming back! She is back from helping work on the launch of Tampa Bay Film and Tampa Bay Acting, and she had to spend some time at Independent Modeling assisting their staff with some projects (she is still helping with that, as the Independent Sites will see large updates this year). She’s back, her mail bag will be in a new smaller and streamlined format, and she’s ready to get back to work. For April, she will catch up on the loose ends of her last mail bag that she had been working on (November 2006 will be reformatted for April 2007, and the “Stick Figures” letter will finally be posted) and add the best letters from the past six months.
We are finalizing the format and the file structures of the mail bag. Expect Monica’s resplies to be shorter and more to the point, as our web site editor now has more work coming with monthly Mail Bags on Tampa Bay Film and Tampa Bay Acting. Tampa Bay Film’s Mail Bag Editor will be a filmmaker by the name of Sphinx (is this right? Don’t quote us on this, as we are not sure), and Tampa Bay Acting will be helmed by actor Brian Steel, who used to run Independent Acting’s (Tampa Bay Independent Actor) Mail Bag back when Monica was running the Independent Modeling (Tampa Bay Independent Model) Mail Bag all those years ago. This will be some good stuff, and you can expect more quality control, meaning not every letter will get published.
We do know this much so far regarding Mail Bags for Tampa Bay Modeling’s regional modeling sister sites when (or if) they ever come online- Their Mail Bags will be referred to ours. Enough said.

PAPERWORK
Independent Modeling is about to get vouchers, and so are we! Expect new forms, flyers, and other modeling tools to become available.

INTERACTIVE TUTORIALS
We’ve been working on these for a while, and the first ones are almost ready to be brought online.

PICTURES
We are in the process of adding more modeling pictures from Tampa Bay photography and design services company (and sponsor) Aurora PhotoArts photography and design, as well as pictures from Orlando modeling photographer Craig Huey. We are also looking into adding pictures from other Tampa Bay photographers, and may partner up with the Tampa based Round Table Photography Association, found at TampaBayPhotographers.Com! This is great!

Much more is coming, so keep checking back!
