Aurora PhotoArts Tampa Bay Photography and Design - Photography -



Aurora PhotoArts Tampa Bay Photography and Design offers a wide variety of photography services for professional, commercial, and consumer markets. Although we specialize in model testing, modeling portfolio photography, and in talent headshot photography, this level of well-defined work for an experienced market gives us an advantage in commercial and consumer markets.
Here at Aurora PhotoArts, we have a passion for photography, and for obtaining the best photographs possible with our clients. Although we were established in the summer of 1994, primarily as a support company for the projects of C. A. Passinault, we spent six years practicing and learning the business. By 2000, our lead photographer, C. A. Passinault finally turned pro, and is photography work began to be noticed. We have 6 years of development, and, at the time of this writing, an additional 12 years of professional photography, 10 of those years leading the Tampa Bay photography services market and setting the standard for what professional photography should be in Florida. Our experience is now your benefit!
We offer photography services in the following markets, although we are flexible in our services, and are not limited to these markets. Please note that these will link to relevant, main sections once those sections are up and running.

Model Testing
Our Espy Model Testing Program, started in 2003, ran until 2006 in the Tampa Bay area, when it was discontinued because it conflicted with our modeling portfolio photography services. During its initial 3 year run, it was very successful, and some might even say too successful, with success at the expense of our modeling portfolio photography services. We spent several years redoing our model testing program, and now, in 2012, our rebuilt Espy Model Testing program is not only available again in the Tampa Bay area, but now it is completely compatible with our modeling portfolio photography services! Our Espy Tampa Model Testing Program is for new models who want to be properly evaluated for a modeling career.

Modeling Portfolio Photography
Aurora PhotoArts modeling portfolio photography sessions are optimized to build the modeling portfolios that professional models need to market their modeling careers. The photographs are relevant for the type of modeling that the model is trying to book, and an effective portfolio makes the model as marketable as possible, by showcasing the range of looks that they can obtain.

Swimsuit Modeling Photography
For many years, our photographers avoided doing a lot of swimsuit modeling photography, as we did not wanting our pictures and the images of the models who we worked with taken out of context and used inappropriately. That doesn’t mean that we can’t do this type of photography, however, and we know how to do it in a tasteful way that cannot easily be taken out of context. The emphasis is on tasteful swimsuit modeling photography which will not undermine the marketability of the model.
For models who wish to specialize in sexier swimsuit modeling, as well as other high-risk work such as glamour, boudoir, lingerie, modeling in skimpy bikinis, and modeling in provocative poses, we certainly hope that the models know that this type of work in their portfolio will make it harder to book most mainstream modeling work. For experienced professional models who want to SPECIALIZE in this type of work, however, we can do it. Just do not expect to see examples of that work here on our web site, as we don’t want to undermine our marketability, and the work that Aurora PhotoArts Tampa Bay Photography and Design does is tasteful, with an emphasis on being family and modeling portfolio-friendly. For models who are looking for high risk work, we have a sister company in the works which will specialize in that work, and the reason that we will be doing this is mainly to provide an ethical, professional alternative to what is available out there now. After all, we care about models, and we care about their professional integrity. We know that there are models out there who are looking for this work in their portfolio, and who wish to specialize in these limited modeling markets. Unfortunately, there are unethical and unprofessional photographers out there who are taking advantage of these models, and model are being hurt. For those models, we are interested in helping them cut down on the risks of high-risk work, so that they can have the modeling career that they want to have. Models who are looking for this type of work need only inquire, and we will give them the information that they need to make a responsible, educated decision, as well as professional options.
Please remember that pictures are forever, and once taken, they cannot be undone. Be safe!
All swimsuit modeling photography work is guaranteed for quality. Please call for rates, availability, and for professional alternatives to what others offer. Terms and conditions apply. We also recommend that the model books a make-up artist, which is not included in any of our modeling photography packages.

Fashion Modeling Photography
Although the Tampa Bay modeling market is not a fashion market as of 2012, despite the efforts of those who are trying to make it into one, we do offer fashion modeling photography for models who are looking to work in fashion modeling markets such as Miami. After all, Aurora PhotoArts Tampa Bay Photography and Design offers services to all of Florida, and to any models who have access to the Tampa Bay area.
Please call for rates and availability. Terms and conditions apply. Fashion photography services are guaranteed for quality. Obviously, models will need to book a make-up artist, and possibly a stylist and a stylist team for their photography session, which is not included in the fashion modeling photography package.

Commercial Photography
Aurora PhotoArts Tampa Bay Photography and Design offers professional commercial photography services at competitive rates for businesses, advertising agencies, and for marketing agendas. Combined with our commercial design and branding services, we offer package deals which make us a guaranteed one-stop shop for the marketing needs of any business.
Because Aurora PhotoArts Tampa Bay Photography and Design also specializes in model testing and in offering modeling portfolio photography to professional models, we have more model contacts who can be booked into the commercial photography service without going through a modeling agency. Because we are a commercial photography company and are not a modeling agency, we do not charge for referrals, and our clients would pay the model their modeling rates directly. Having professional models to refer to our commercial photography services at no additional charge from us is one of the advantages that we have over any other Tampa Bay commercial photographer or commercial photography company. After all, we have the resources that we need to give you the best photography services that you can invest in.
