Client Testimonial
"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!"
-Steven, an advertising agency art director from Orlando, Florida

We strongly recommend that models obtain model portfolio pictures and composite cards before going to any model and talent agency. This will help models avoid potential ethical and professional conflicts as well as the possibility of being scammed by agencies that are more interested in illegally selling models portfolios instead of booking them into work. Actors and talent should obtain professional photographs and head shots before going to agencies for the same reason. If the agency is reputable, they should have no problem using the professional pictures and career tools that you already have to book you into work.

Photography and design services companies like are are in business to provide you with the professional pictures, portfolios, and tools that you need for your career. This is what we do, and model and talent agencies are not more qualified than we are in assisting you with your investment in the tools that you need for your career.

Due to the potential for an ethical conflict of interest, we do not mix prospective jobs that we book models into with our portfolio photography and development services. To be considered for any model job, models should already have a solid portfolio and composite cards, as we rarely book aspiring models into any job. Models who contract our portfolio photography services and other services are not coerced into booking us with the promise of booking any work, neither directly or implied. We are not obligated to book any models into work if they are clients.
Aurora PhotoArts is not a model and talent agency. We are a photography services company with a large spread of services that have the potential to be conflicts of interest. We do not charge models any fees or make money from fees by referring models into client jobs, as we make our money from photography. There are no trade secrets on this web site. There is no information that can be considered confidential. We respect the privacy of our clients. All content and images on this web site are protected by State and Federal law, and we will aggressively protect our rights.

Shopping for photography services by rates alone is a false economy. You often get what you pay for. You need to look at the whole picture. Ask to see samples of the quality of their work and take the time to interview them when you evaluate a photographer for your service needs. Be safe- verify their references. For more on verifying photographer references and checking them out, go to our friends at Independent Modeling, IndependentModeling.Com .

Our services are an investment, and we work hard to make what we do the best value that you can get. Aurora PhotoArts is a professional business with top-rated quality services, and no longer offers TFP (Time For Print) for aspiring models. While we may waive certain costs during special offers or elect to collaborate with top models, we have no free services. If we gave away our services, we could not stay in business and our quality services would no longer be available. If you are just starting out in your modeling career, you need to face the facts- you need professional pictures, and those pictures are an investment that you will need to make to get anywhere in your career. Nothing good comes free or easy. Time is not replaceable, and money is. Unless you want to waste a lot of your time trying to build a professional portfolio for free and possibly work with amateurs who will do nothing for you but teach you bad habits that you will later need to lose, realize that you will have to invest in quality tools. Modeling is a career, and like any career you will only get out of it what you put into it. Don't short-change yourself when you need to invest in pictures that will work for you and your modeling career. Also remember that going by rates alone is a false economy; there may be a very good reasons why those rates are as low as they are. Shop for photography services by value (i.e. The quality of the work instead of absolute rates) instead of rates, and you will get the pictures that you need without wasting time and will also avoid unprofessional people. Please do not ask for TFP's, as the request will be turned down. If you need to save money, we have SPECIAL OFFERS and REDUCED RATE PHOTOGRAPHY services available. If you are a professional model, you may want to check out our STOCK PHOTOGRAPHY PROGRAM, which may serve the purpose of a TFP.
