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.

We Need Professionalism In Photography

As 2006 begins, many models in the Tampa Bay area have noticed that model photography in this market needs to change. We have too many guys with cameras offering low quality TFP (Time For Print) services, basically shooting for free and giving aspiring models the impression that starting a modeling career doesn’t have to cost a dime. This is incorrect, and it’s really beginning to destabilize the model portfolio photography market and, more important to me, is giving models, especially freelancers who work without depending on an agency, a bad name. That’s only the beginning of my issues, though. Just yesterday, yet another Tampa Bay based, self proclaimed model portfolio photographer, who just happened to be a TFP’er and who posted spectacularly amateur-level work, was arrested for taking nude and risque pictures of an underage model. How did he do it? By using a portfolio networking site! These amateur photographers and clueless models running around are giving us all a bad reputation, and I am sick of it. We need more professional freelance photographers and professional freelance models making themselves known. If they don’t, then it only gives old-industry model and talent agencies more leverage in business, and stunts the advancement of the new industry.
I am hopeful, however. The market has a tendency to bounce back and keep itself in check. Those who are unprofessional, ironically, just happen to make those of us who are professional look better in the eyes of those who really matter in our careers, and that’s just fine by me.
I’ll rant more about this later. For now, on to more positive things.
I hope that you all like the newest version of Tampa Bay Modeling, which launched today. It took long enough. The new site is up, but most of our advanced features remain offline at the moment. We ported our old content over to the new format, and will be spending the next few days going through and editing it. We will also be segmenting the long sections into subsections, which will eliminate the scrolling that we all hate. Well, at least I know that I hate too much scrolling.
Keep checking back every day, as we’ll have the site fully operational within a week. It will take a few more weeks, however, to get it where we want it. So, what’s new? I’ll tell you one thing for now: The new Tampa Bay Modeling is designed to be a scrapper of a site, a fighter, and is more than equipped to address the needs and concerns of the Tampa Bay and Florida modeling industry. Welcome aboard, and enjoy the wild ride!
