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.

STATEMENT ABOUT TAMPA SHOOTOUTS

TAMPA MODELING PHOTOGRAPHY SHOOTOUT ISSUES AND SCAMS

Effective immediately, Tampa Bay Modeling, the Tampa Bay Photography Society professional photography association, my event planning / stage production companies, the upcoming Tampa Bay Photographers (name to be decided) photography career resource web site, and our upcoming professional modeling association professional modeling association have declared war on amateur and / or unethical shootout events in the Tampa Bay area.
New standards have to be introduced, and maintained, in the market. Professional, appropriate, ethical, relevant alternatives must be made available. There are way too many modeling photography events by guys/ girls (mostly guys, though, who do not have the best intentions of others in mind) with cameras (in other words, amateurs, some misleading others and becoming scams when they claim to be professionals and to be professionally qualified when they are obviously not) who absolutely do not know what they are doing, as well as con artists who victimize people. Professional standards and competition will help to bring integrity to the market by putting some of these amateur GWC and TFP model shoots out of “business”, if you can call whatever they try to do a business, as well as force the remaining photography events to get their act together and become professional. Earning their way into a profession, and having true ethics and integrity, will be their only hope of surviving in the market which we will be changing and leading. They will have to invest in their careers and actually learn the business; they will no longer be able to fake it until they make it, or, in most cases, make a career out of faking it. When you take shortcuts, you often never bother to learn the profession and earn your experience so that you know what you are doing. As a result, many of the fakes remain fakes.
This is not only a war on scams and unprofessional practices, but on ignorance as a whole. There are a lot of ignorant people being misinformed and misguided at their expense. We are going to wage this war in a number of ways, but the three main ways are as follows:
