Isn't it WHY geeks like this become fashion photographers???

I don't get it, why is every one surprised? This chap Richardson is accused of exploiting young vulnerable models:

I quote: "I hope you know you only [bleep] girls because you have a camera, lots of fashion contacts and get your pictures in Vogue."
Duh!

I'm sure the, highly unattractive, Richardson never really thought about that before choosing fashion photography as a "career".

This is goes on unabated. There is a slippery slope from bonafide fashion modeling to porn. The same goes for actors. Some photographers are simply slimy. The Roman Polanski case was not a one-off. He simply got caught. It's a lifestyle for some. Strangely, some parents have been know to throw their children into this world.

Terry Richardson's father was a well-known photographer which may have helped his career. His father was dating Anjelica Huston for a while too, so he grew up in the "Hollywood" lifestyle.

"Mr. Richardson's father Bob was a well-regarded photographer-dude of the 60's. When Terry was 4, his father left his mother for Anjelica Huston, then 17. Terry's mother moved on to Jimi Hendrix, Kris Kristofferson and Keith Richards. "
