Independent Modeling is a resource site for independent and agency-represented models who wish to enhance the marketability of their modeling careers, as well as have an advantage over limited models; those limited models being agency-only models who do not think for themselves, do not invest in their career, and allow modeling agencies to manage them, and to tell them what to do. Other limited models include models who try to put together competent professional modeling portfolios for free, using TFP, and who try to compete against professional models with cheap career tools. The independent models who use Independent Modeling are smart, professional models who know enough that to have an advantage over other models, that they have to invest in their careers. Independent Modeling is NOT a modeling and talent agency, and we do not claim to be. We do not directly refer models into modeling jobs for financial compensation, and do not represent models.

Tampa Bay Modeling Portfolio Photography
Modeling portfolios by Aurora PhotoArts Tampa Bay Photography and Design

Aurora PhotoArts has been specializing in modeling portfolio photography since 2001, and in the Tampa Bay area, no one else comes close to what we can do for professional models and the marketability of their careers.
We are very serious about giving our model clients modeling portfolios which will get them work, and we work very hard to ensure that models obtain usable, effective pictures from their modeling portfolio photography sessions. All modeling portfolio photography work is guaranteed for quality.
Our primary goal is to do everything within our power to give our models clients an advantage over the models whom they compete against in finding and booking modeling work. With our experience, and expertise, our model clients have the most effective modeling career marketing tools in Florida.
Aurora PhotoArts is a company which is in business to give you the modeling portfolio that you need and deserve. It’s what we do.
Aurora PhotoArts also cares about models and the integrity of the modeling industry, and we are proudly affiliated with, and own, Independent Modeling, which is the top modeling resource web site in the world. Independent Modeling was started by us in 2001 to help models, and it continues to be a free modeling resource site with lot of useful information and tools for models; the site shows models how to avoid becoming dependent upon the agencies for work, and to take charge of their careers and their job opportunities. Of course, there is no obligation to buy anything, or services, from Aurora PhotoArts to use Independent Modeling. .

To be a model is to be a self-contained business. You’re an independent contractor, and regardless of if you are agency-represented or not, the bottom line is that, once you find a modeling job lead, you have to book the job on your own, and have to be able to sell the looks that you can bring to the job.
Like any business, you are only as good as the marketing tools that you use. A model is only as good as their portfolio, as their portfolio demonstrates their range of looks and experience to prospective modeling jobs. In the competitive world of modeling, the only way that any model can compete with other professional models is to have marketing tools which are better than those used by the competition is using. The foundation of the marketing of the model is the modeling portfolio, and it is the most important investment that a model can make in their career. Often, the model who books the job is the one with the most professional, most relevant portfolio.
The model who does not invest in their modeling portfolio and the careers marketing tools which extend from that portfolio handicaps, and even cripples, their modeling career. There is no way around this. Additionally, no modeling portfolio photographer who can actually do anything for your career is going to do it for free. It’s an investment.

Aurora PhotoArts and Independent Modeling are directly affiliated, and are owned by Passinault.Com . Aurora PhotoArts lead photographer C. A. Passinault is the editor of Independent Modeling.

The agency way is no longer the only way of having a professional career as a model. There is no arguing against common-sense and proven business practices. Modern professional models think for themselves, network, and book work both as independent models and by using agencies as one of many sources of jobs. This is the future of the modeling industry.
