As a relatively new model you dont realise this, I didnt. Ive also worked on a number of professional published shoots since where the ID & release is done at the start just because its easier, including when Galaxy Publications had their in house studio & photographer. However, being a very experienced model now, I wouldn't sign a release (but happy to show ID) at the start of a shoot unless I trust the photographer/company 100%.HowardJIf I was a model I'd never sign the release at the start of the shoot.
Agreed. And just to clarify a point or a concern, it is true that no prosecution may go ahead due to insufficient evidence, BUT the report will remain on the police computer for a LONG time. Ok, it wont be on PNC unless a criminal conviction is brought about, but will be on their local (force) PC and if any other complainants come forward it will flag up that there have been previous reports. The older 'closed' reports can quite easily be reopened and dealt with alongside newer reports. To say the police 'wont do anything' or 'wont take it seriously' is not true and even if nothing is done at that time, it could quite easily be used in the future to bring a prosecution. The more reports, the bigger the picture, the easier a prosecution. One piece of a jigsaw may not mean much, but several pieces can make a picture. The police are still in the process of collaborating all the information from each and every force ever since the Soham murders of Jessica Chapman and Holly Wells brought out failings in having different systems in each force.AegeanSoftAny model abused by him should report it to the Halifax police, regardless of how long ago it was.
True, but it is easy to get carried away when there are so many of them who could have reported it. Although understandably the type of victim chosen doen make it even more difficult for them. Personally I'm exponentially more angry at the agents and other models who continue to work. I mean what's £400/500 every so often in the grand scheme of things it's nothing. He's basically paying approximate b/g rates for solo which is probably how he justifies his bbehaviour to himself. But to a model, really? You need the money that much? I'd put myself about escorting before I worked with a piece of shit like that.fizzyIt's truly awful what this individual has done to numerous women. It's also truly awful that they're being made to feel responsible for the treatment of others at his hands. The onus shouldn't be on his poor victims to prevent it happening again, it should be on him not being a vile, predatory piece of shit. In my opinion, the law shouldn't allow sex offenders to work alone with adults either particularly in an easily abused position as an adult shooter. Just because someone molested children when they were convicted does not mean that they will only target children and that others are not at risk.
I think this is what people who have not actually been in the situation fail to understand. Its very easy to tell people what they *should* have done in any particular situation, when you are offering the advice from a position of safety and security. You simply cannot question a particular individuals action in a given situation of danger, if you have not been in that situation yourself.Amber6I also understand the fear of 'having to go along with it' as I was essentially in a locked warehouse with the photographer who was very inappropriate with me. I was forced to play it cool (even though I was terrified) until we left the building. Running isnt always an option. I'm pleased to say that individual no longer practices photography(it might be hard from jail, where I believe him to be).
