Terry Richardson is a well-known photographer in the fashion industry for two main reasons: 1. His A-list celebrity clientele, and 2. His EXTREMELY questionable methods.
In case you don’t know what those questionable methods are, you can read all about them HERE.
Or you can just read what two models who’ve worked with him had to say, and know that many other models have gone through similar experiences with Terry!
Models Sara Ziff and Alise Shoemaker recently opened up about Uncle Terr’s reputation, saying:
"I think almost every model has had an encounter with him, whether it be good or bad. I would say the majority are complaints. [Richardson] will ask you to take your clothes off at the casting, and in some cases, give him sexual favors."
Unsurprisingly, Alise says she "wouldn't work with him" in the future.
Sadly, models who feel pressured into sticky situations with Terry Richardson are actually not protected from sexual harassment since they're "independent contractors"!
But there's now a report system through Model Alliance that can help models who've been harassed.
Think Terry's bad behavior is what eventually led to his split from Audrey Gelman??
