What I am about to post is serious matter, and I personally feel that every responsible photographer, whether your are a full-time pro or a hobbyist needs to know this.
I found out that a friend of mine (her name shall be withheld for safety reasons) was invited to do a shoot by a photographer. Now I do not know for sure how this photographer managed to locate my friend who is only a teenager. But they did a shoot together recently. Apparently this photographer 'did' things to my friend during the shoot. What exactly happened I do not know, because my friend is rather traumatised by the whole experience and does not wish to talk about it even now. I can speculate what transpired during the shoot, but I can only imagine it is not something good.
I am absolutely angered and disgusted that out there someone is using the pretext of photography to take advantage of a girl in such despicable manner. It is a total disgrace to the rest of the photographers in the local community.
Whoever you are, if you happen to be in this forum and is reading this, let me tell you, don't think you can do what you did and get away with it. There will come a time when someone is brave enough to pursue the matter all the way to the authorities. And then the only photo taken will be your ugly face splashed all over the front page news.
To the rest of the photographers, I hope that we keep vigilant about this issue. And to those freelance models, you may want to excercise more care when you take up one-to-one assignments. You don't know what kind of sick people are out there.
If anyone, has encountered or heard of such similiar encounters, maybe we should contact each other and do something about it.
