If you believe he has a Purestorm account please use the Report Report Abuse link at the foot of his page.

It should be noted that the reports claim he contacted models through personal websites and not portfolio sites.

I fully believe people who use photography, or indeed any excuse, as a reason to carry out this type of behaviour should be named and shamed like this. Any model who feels that they are or have been assaulted should be able to firstly say STOP and secondly should not be ashamed or scared to report this type of behaviour to the authourities.

Its little wonder many people outside the industry always give a wry smile when they see nude or lingeries shots when they believe this type of behaviour is the norm.

Not entirely sure of the logic here.  If you had lived in Scotland he would have been local to you!

Its not about travelling, there is as much chance of somebody doing this to you local as there is from further away.
If models do proper reference checking and uses their gut instinct then the liklihood of it happening are reduced.
Not saying the above is 100% foolproof but it does help.

I honestly didn't mean to come across catty there, seriously.
I keep my eyes on most local photographers who actively shoot in Scotland, even those who shoot styles completely different to me pop up on my various websites from time to time so when its somebody I have never heard of or seen about in my life I presume he isn't working with any models who are on the circuit. Its not supposed to be bitchy or anything at all.

It goes without saying that the guy should have been punished for this and it is entirely unacceptable but.....

"The court heard how two of the women who were assaulted believed it would not happen again and returned for more pictures where they were subjected to more inappropriate sexual behaviour."

really??
