Apparently he had a previous conviction for raping an 84 yr old woman and changed his name when he got out. He'd trained as a photographer while in prison. Agencies sent models to him for portfolios to be shot.

Well done.

According The Times newspaper today he was on MM.

Question: Why is the text not wrapping on my original post?*

* Moderator Input - sorry, we do not understand the question. The post looks okay to us.

Although this individual had a photographer profile on Purestorm between 2009 and 2011
(he listed only Fitness Model, Fashion, Print Magazine, Swimwear, Lingerie and Hair as interests)
he only made minimal use of this website and contacted no models through here after mid-2010.

As soon as our Moderator Team  became aware that alleged issues were serious enough for the
police to become involved they drew this to Management attention and took him offline
(04/11).

They also advised some model members not to jeopardise any proceedings by posting publicly
as until/unless a conviction is obtained there can be unforeseen legal ramifications.

Sadly if you google his name you do find blog posts from some of the models he assaulted or tried to.
