"I have worked with many photographers
in my modeling career, and you offer more than anyone else. Your photography
is the best! "
"The best photography web site that
I have ever seen. It inspired me to book you for my model portfolio
"As far as I am concerned, your people
are the smartest in the business and some of the most talented professional
photographers in Florida. You continue to impress me even after I booked
your services, and you can count on me for more business in the future.
After discovering the best, I could never go anywhere else. You are
my secret weapon and my ace card in my modeling career."
"I'd recommend Aurora photoarts to
anyone who's interested in jumpstarting their acting or modeling career.
Aurora photoarts went the extra mile to help me develop my comp card
and portfolio with a variety of looks. I am happy with the creativity
and look forward to working with them in the future!""
"The best photography and photography
information on one web site. What more could a professional girl need?
I love all that you do! Keep this interested model informed!"
"Informative words to go with the
best pictures in Florida! You people really know what you're doing,
and I have not found a single photographer in my daughters modeling
career who can match your professional skill in photography or extensive
knowledge of the business. I enjoy reading your developments section
to see what is going on with you. "
"I am really impressed. Models get
an online portfolio on your web site AND a free featured model profile
on Independent Modeling. That's just the beginning of how you support
them, and no one else even comes close to what you can do for models."
"Photographers really need to worry
about their clients talking to you. Most of them would work with you
and the unlucky photographers would lose them to you."
"I have worked with many photographers
and have gone through many composite cards. Your model portfolio photography
is second to none in Tampa Bay, and you gave me awesome pictures from
my session. After I obtained my pictures, I was impressed with how you
designed my composite cards. When you got them back from your printer,
I was REALLY stunned; they were the absolute BEST composite cards that
this model has EVER had in my eight year career, with their glossy finish
and professional feel! It’s just not me, either; my agents love
them and everyone who has seen them has told me that they intend to
check you out the next time that they need cards. These cards WORK for
me, too, and they get me work. Thanks so much for the best tools for
"Your company site is worth watching
for the information alone. I've learned so much by reading things on
your site, and your photography is worth the investment, too. Thank
you for some great pictures!"
"You are simply better than the photographers
who agencies refer models to. Do they really know what they are doing?"
"Your company's test sessions were
a great way to add quality shots to my portfolio, as well as learn new
techniques and poses. Your photographer was talented, nice to work with,
and very knowledgeable about the market as it relates to the Tampa Bay
area. Your service is a great value, and I would recommend your work
to both aspiring and experienced models!"
"My portfolio pictures that I got
from Aurora PhotoArts really work, and I am now booking more work than
I ever have before! My portfolio really shows the variety of looks that
I have as a model, and the companies that book me are seeing the looks
that they have in mind when they go through my portfolio. Everyone is
extremely impressed with your photography, and every model who has looked
at my book wants to know where I got my pictures so they can get some
like I have, too. Thank you so much for making a real difference in
my modeling career! You made me a believer, and I will send models I
know your way."
"Your company has so much more going
on than any other photography company or photographer in the Tampa Bay
area. Many top models realize that you are the future of the photography
business in Florida, and we proudly stand with you as you set industry
standards. You are not only the best, but the smartest as well!"
"Tampa Bay seems to be a way station,
or pit stop, for talent people on their way to Los Angeles. A lot of
them check in with us for the pictures and tools that they need to promote
themselves in that market and other entertainment markets. Our head
shots are doing very well in Los Angeles."
"I have looked at all of the photographers
in Tampa Bay and the rest of Florida, and you are the best for model
portfolio photography. Your work is so much better. I am booking you
for the pictures that my portfolio needs. I have been very impressed
with the work that you have done for me in the past."
"I really love and respect your work.
It would be both an honor and will help my career to get involved with
the projects that your company is doing. Other models and model agencies
tell me that your company is the one to watch in the industry, and they
highly recommend your projects."
"The pictures came out excellent.
They were a good investment, and they will help my modeling and acting
"You are incredible. I had my head
shots previously done by an agency referred head shot photographer in
Orlando, and you are much better than they are."
"I'm impressed. These are the best
model portfolio pictures that I have had. You're a great photographer."
"I worked with a photographer by the
name of Chris Passinault who works with his company Aurora PhotoArts
to get my head shots done. I was not only very comfortable working with
him, but the pictures were easily the best I have had, and were more
than worth what I paid for them. I later went ahead and started a model
portfolio with them, too. I highly recommend him."
"My family loved my modeling pictures.
There are so many pictures that I like that it was hard to pick them."
"The pictures came out very good.
Thank you for such a great experience and for giving me pictures that
I can use for my career."
"The pictures that you took of my
daughter Christi were incredible. I just wanted to let you know what
a great job that you have done for us."
"I was very pleased with the way that
my pictures came out. You have so much talent!"
"The ESPY model test session pictures
were brilliant. I intend to book a portfolio session with you soon."
"We loved the pictures from the project
that you booked our daughter Jinelsa into. The next time that she needs
a portfolio, you are our photographer!"
"Right on! Knowing that Aurora PhotoArts
works with a great web site like Independent Modeling makes you look
more professional! Thank you for your commitment to helping models who
really need it!"
"Knowing that there is a lot more
to Aurora PhotoArts than the average photography company is impressive.
I really like the special packages that you offer with the other Passinault.Com
companies, and knowing all of the Passinault Entertainment Group and
Passinault Industries LLC companies are designed to work together is
exciting for not only what you can for your clients now, but what you
can do for them tomorrow! Sign me up!"
"Thank you all for being true leaders
in the photography and design industry and letting us know what you're
up to. You lead by example, and advertising agencies, models, talent,
photographers, and modeling agencies can easily keep up with your site
updates and news through your developments section. Many of us check
for updates by going there. I read some brilliant things on your site,
and learn more every day by studying Aurora PhotoArts."
"Your AURA technology is going to
change everything. Your work is already awesome, and it blows the mind
to think of what your company will be doing in the next year!"
"Booking Aurora PhotoArts to shoot
our clothing line was one of the best decisions that we have ever made.
Your work is excellent, and the high quality gave us many options in
how to use the photographs to market our product. Your people paid attention
to the details and gave us exactly what we wanted. The models that you
referred to us were all highly professional, and we saved
"Our recent company event was unforgettable,
and you helped make it special for all of us. We originally figured,
from experience, that we would have to find a DJ and a photographer
separately. Thank God we were still looking for a good DJ when we called
you. You not only gave us excellent photographs for us to remember the
event, but you set us up with your sister company Eventi Events. With
the event planning, entertainment, and photography all in one package,
you saved us a lot of money, and, most importantly, time! The DJ, choreographer,
and the photographer were all wonderful, and they made a great team!
"You are simply incredible. You have
always given us exactly what we need! The models that you have referred
to us have been among the best that we have worked with, too. Some of
your photography beats what I have seen in Miami and New York, and it
certainly puts people who claim to be photographers in their place.
I can't believe a photography company in your caliber exists in Tampa.
In my opinion, you are the best photography company in Florida."
"I was recently on a shoot with one
of your photography teams, and saw some equipment and techniques used
that I've never seen before. The photographs that I got would have been
impossible without your inventions, and I am impressed with the ingenuity
and talent of your company."
"That's smart. I am impressed by the
variety of other professionals that you are affiliated with, and the
way that those affiliations enhance your already superior services."
"I dreamed of my wedding day all of
my life. It was very important to me, and the pictures that you did
for us are priceless. My family and I are very happy with them, and
my sister intends to use your photography services when she gets married
in September. We also want to use that DJ that you recommended to us
again, as he made the reception a blast! We will be in touch."
"I sat down and looked at your portfolio,
and was very impressed by what you have done. That's one reason why
I used your services, and I am happy with the pictures that you did
"I paid attention, and I got a great
deal on a photography session well before the special offer on it expired."
"Fusia Studios will bring integrity
back to the photography services market in Tampa Bay."
"How many projects is your photography
company doing? Those proofs look really good- I want to be considered."
"There's more? How big is this web
site, anyway? This has GOT TO BE the most extensive and the best photography
web site that I've ever seen. I've been looking at lots of pictures,
and I like what I see. Now I want to read what you have to say and see
what else you have to offer me as a professional model."
"Thank you for both the convenience
and the security features that you have with your new printing release.
I feel better knowing that no one can easily go somewhere and print
my pictures if they were to fall into the wrong hands."
"GREAT JOB! Everyone loved the pics.
Thank you so very much! I would work with you in the future and gladly
refer you with out reservation."
"You are one of the most highly recommended
model portfolio photography companies in the State Of Florida, and many
models adore you and your work. We are very happy with the photography
that you have done for us, and it is a great honor to feature your work
on the Independent Modeling web site over the past four years."
"Actors rave about how good your head
shot photography is. We have been very pleased with the work that you
have done for us."
"Now we know why so many models love
you. You guys are the most professional, ethical, and talented modeling
photographers in Tampa Bay. Your rates are very good, too. Congratulations
on over ten years of the best photography services in the area! I am
proud to be able to call you all friends in the industry, too!"
"Your work is quite possibly the best
in the Tampa Bay region of Florida, and we are excited to see what we
know is coming up in 2005."
"As an artist, I am very proud of
my work and the strong professional ethics behind it. We are working
toward work that will set new standards in the next year, and I am thankful
for the admiration and the support of the professionals in the industry.
Thank you all so much."
Tampa Bay, Florida
"My Mom knew that I wanted something
cooler than the typical graduation pictures that the other seniors were
getting, so she got me a session with you as part of my gift. The pictures
came out so good, and all my friends love them! Thank you for making
my dream come true, Aurora PhotoArts!"
"The job that you booked me into was
awesome. It paid well and gave me top notch tear sheets. Your photographers
are the best that I have worked with. The best part is that I was able
to book it without an agency and saved a lot of money!"
"Forget all the other photographers
and photography companies- YOU ARE the ONE that I want to work with!
After seeing your work, which is some of the best in this market, talking
with you and going over details, and seeing how you support your clients
and your sales team, it was a no-brainer to get involved. My referred
clients are all very happy with what we've done for them, and I've earned
quite a bit working with you. Thank you for a sales opportunity that
I feel right about!"
"Your client services department was
a pleasure to deal with, and it was easy to book one of your free consultations
over the phone. When I went to the consultation, I was so impressed
by your work that I booked your company for my head shots. The work
that you did for me was excellent, and I highly recommend you!"
"As a repeat client of Aurora PhotoArts,
I have always been impressed with your top quality and reasonable rates.
Your photographers really know their business, and their knowledge of
the modeling industry is a bonus that makes your outstanding photographs
a great buy!"
"As a actress with a lot of theater
experience, I needed head shots in order to be considered for film auditions.
I was new to head shots, and you guys gave me some of the best head
shots that I've ever seen, and I am the envy of actors that I talk to
in auditions. The actual head shot itself even feels higher quality
(I guess it's the paper), and the picture was right on! Some of them
wrote down your company name when I told them where I had them done.
I've even had several casting directors compliment me on them. couldn't
ask for better tools. Thank you very much."
"You guys really are the best value
in the Tampa Bay photography market. Your pictures are incredible and
are easily the best that I have seen, but there's much more to you than
that. Not only do you keep an online portfolio of your models for them
to use at no additional cost, but you also give them web comps and a
free one year membership profile on Independent Modeling! The level
of support that you give us after we book your services is simply unbeatable!!!!
Thank God for you..... You are truly the top one-stop-shop for models
in Tampa Bay."
"Your Web Comps are brilliant and
very effective! I decided to get a standard three look Web Comp from
you with pictures that I supplied through E-Mail. The Web Comp image
file that I received proved to be perfect on my web site, and is great
for posting on modeling web sites and E-Mailing to my industry contacts.
It is as effective as a normal composite card, and my Web Comp have
led to bookings! Thank you, Aurora PhotoArts!"
"You did a great job designing my
composite cards, and the printer had no problem printing them. You really
know how to pick the pictures and the design that will help me stand
out from the rest and give me an advantage in my career!"
"I, for one, am happy to see that
you guys are taking great measures to avoid misleading people. Some
model scams are photography companies who offer models jobs, trash the
model's portfolio, and then try to sell them portfolio photography services
and other things. Your jobs are real, and I can vouch that you avoid
mixing business that could be unethical and a conflict of interest.
Thank you for being honest professionals! I will continue to recommend
"You guys have a great, interesting
history and a legacy that precedes you. You have been in business a
long time, and that alone makes me feel better dealing with you for
the photographs that I need. What the models and people say about you
"Normally, TFP means amateur. I am
surprised that you sometimes offer TFP sessions at your usual professional
high quality. Some photographers are upset at you because you do better
work than they do and occasionally offer freebies like this, but I am
happy. This really helped me out."
"Great job! I was amazed by how good
the shots came out. Two of the pictures were used on my comps, and the
black and white head shot made the cards worth every penny."
"I've been burned before. There have
been agencies that say that they represent models, but turn around and
get them to buy overpriced photo sessions. There was an agency in Tampa
that charged me over $600.00 for a shoot, then turned around and said
that they needed another 600 for more pictures because they needed more
to finish my cards. I was so mad! Thank God for great photographers
like you guys. All of my supplies came to a total that was almost half
of what their initial shoot was. The pictures were usable, too."
"I wanted to write to you tonight
to tell you that I'm impressed with your professional ethics. I have
a friend who wanted to have nude pictures of her taken. You all turned
"Your photographer was so helpful
and knowledgeable during my session, that I'm seriously interested in
photography as a career to supplement my modeling career."
"Those headshots are going to help
my career. You get a standing ovation from the theater company that
I work with as well as myself."
"You're one incredible photographer!"
"My daughter was pleased. I am as
well. You were all so professional with her, and gave her some solid
advice during the work. The model that you had on site working as a
stylist was a stroke of brilliance. They add so much to the work, and
my daughter now has much more realistic expectations of her career as
"I can't believe how incredible these
pictures came out. I just wanted to call to say how happy I am."
"Some companies try to sell you on
value, but you're the first to actually deliver. Count me in as a long
term customer; you'll be seeing more of me in the future."
"I'm glad that I listened to your
sister company when I planned my event. Those were some great memories
that you preserved!"
"We are extremely impressed with the
quality and direction of your work. Every model that we have talked
to has nothing but the best things to say about what you have done for
them. You are a service orientated company that provides the Independent
Model with the best tools; tools that they need in today's competitive
market. We will continue to recommend you. As a modeling resource company,
we are also pleased with the work that you have done for us."
"I'm horrified that I didn't find
out about you people sooner. I know some others that will love what
you can do."
"Your slogan fits. You are so awesome!!!!!!!!"
"Your company offers some of the best
photography and services in Tampa. If I were your competition, though,
I wouldn't worry about your photography the most. Anyone can go tit
for tat in photography and the rates that they charge, and I've seen
it happen from time to time; you're talking simple apples and oranges
here. What they need to worry about is that their clients end up sitting
down and talking to you. That's what happened to me. I was so sold on
the fact that the photographers that I was working with were the professionals
that I needed to be with. Well, I accepted third-rate photographers
because I didn't know about you at the time. When I did find out about
you, one of the photographers tried to keep me from talking to you.
Now I know why they did that, and I am glad that I did not listen. I
took some time to read over your web site and look at your work. I was
impressed. I took some time and met with one of your representatives
to simply talk. He knew his stuff, and I must say that he made the other
photographers that I knew look like simpletons. After booking you for
my portfolio and getting to know your company better, I can honestly
say that the industry needed you. I cannot go back to most of those
photographers anymore, and my eyes have been opened at last. Photographers
should lose sleep over their clients talking to you, because you're
the real deal and the best in Tampa Bay."
