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.

The Meaning Of Professional Integrity.

There seems to be a lot of desperation and insecurity in the Tampa Bay modeling industry. So-called professionals everywhere seem eager to compromise their values and will do just about anything to make money in this business. Some will lie, cheat, and steal if they have to, all in the name of making a living in a “professional career”.
Some of these pathetic excuses for professionals delight in taking shortcuts. They thrive in ignorance, refusing to learn how the industry works, how it can work beyond the confines of the old agency-based past, and accept the opinions of con artists as fact. Misconceptions run rampant in an environment of selective ignorance, too.
One of the missions of Tampa Bay Modeling is to help models think for themselves for a change by giving them the best information and tools for their career, while opening their eyes to the possibilities of a modeling career as well as to the many model scams that are out to get them.
Some career advice? Realize that losing a job opportunity or a booking can be a good thing if accepting what it entails goes against your professional values or conflicts with the values of those who help your career. To accept every job is the surest way of destroying your career. Being professionally selective is being professionally responsible, and your career and the modeling industry will thank you in the long run. Weigh out the value of every job, and only accept those with the highest value.
The meaning of integrity? Don’t compromise. Stay true to who you are and what you do. Know that you truly are who you associate with. Be honest with who you are as a professional and what you are able to do. Don’t sell yourself short, either; determine what rates are fair to a professional of your skill and qualifications and don’t go too high or too low around those base rates. Realize that to have a professional career is to make money in that career; while collaborating with established professionals when it will benefit all parties involved from time-to-time is acceptable, careers are not charities. Lastly, treat others like you would want to be treated. Respect other true professionals, and do what you can to help those who are doing the right thing even if you don’t agree with them.
Integrity is much more than just a word to be exploited. It is what you do and who you do it with. Integrity is not only what you show to the world with your actions. It is also what you do quietly behind the scenes.
