This is the last thing I'll say about it.
If someone offered a young lady 1,000 to sleep with them, and that young lady(who has the ability to turn down the offer) accepts it, do you call her a victim? No, many people would instead, call her a prostitute.
She used sex as a means of getting something she wanted. She wasn't FORCED, she simply accepted the offer.

I think I understand both sides of this situation. Here's how I see it:

This guy is a well known sleaze. It's like the dog who bites metaphor above. If you go to "Uncle Terry" as an unknown aspiring model, and want him to shoot your modeling portfolio, you should know what he is and should not be surprised when the treats you like a whore. His reputation precedes him. Sorry, but it's the truth. You should go elsewhere.

On the other hand, if it's a paid job, and he has "creative control" and can hire whomever he chooses, and he insists on a pound of flesh, so to speak, or else you won't get the job, then that is coercion. It's unprofessional and likely also illegal in many countries.
illegal doesn't make things immoral. Although I wouldn't get women as such, I don't think it's wrong for him to work how he does(although many will disagree with me). Point is, YOU DONT HAVE TO DO THE JOB.
just like folks who want to take naked photos in the name of art. People who truly don't want to have sex with this man, won't do it under any circumstances. Forget who you are! It's like a woman wanting to kick it with the rock band, well chances are, you're going to have to give something up, do you still want to kick it with the rock band(because you liked them/ because their famous/ because they might put you in a song). If you don't want to have sex with this man, don't deal with him and blame it on him when he asked you to have sex, and you OBLIGED. whatever the reason may be. People that have principles, tend to not change them. Thats my just my 2,4,6,8 cent

not much different than the old casting couch that has been in Hollywood since the birth of film really. there will always be a percentage of women who will use what they have to get where they want. The difference is he makes no secret of it.
RIGHT!

Women use what they have many of times to get what they need. But since this is terry richardson, they all cry about it AFTER the fact, when they simply could have left?
But wait "I don't want to loose these wonderful photos that he would take of me" In that case, the dignity and self respect that were taken from them because of the non existent force he used, must of not be too highly valued if they chose the photos instead. I mean, your point would make sense if say, every aspiring model had to take photos with TR as a requirement, in order to be signed to a major agency, but that is simply not the case. STOP TAKING PHOTOS WITH HIM. LEAVE IF YOU FEEL UNCOMFORTABLE.

What the photographer is doing is essentially a type of blackmail: "I possess the power/authority/influence to harm your career/reputation and thus harm your interests. If you don't do X (which you are unwilling to do without this threat), then I will harm your interests." One doesn't have to explicitly spell out their position of power, especially given that such power, authority, or influence is often informal (making it yet easier for the blackmailer to deny wrong doing). The threat to do harm can be vague or implicit, as well as the expectations for the blackmailee's behavior (once again, making it easier for the blackmailer to deny having done anything wrong).

It is coercion. Call me old fashioned, but it is extremely unethical (and may even be illegal, also). The whole point of blackmail is that it gives the appearance that someone is doing something willingly, even though they are in fact not doing that willingly. Additionally, it's not only a way to try to hide from legal responsibility, but it frequently is the blackmailer's attempt to hide from their own conscience (perhaps, again though, I'm just old fashioned).

It is disgusting behavior, it does real harm to vulnerable people, and it should not be tolerated.

Thats odd, do they not have the ability to leave??
Fear of not being booked again?
If he was such a monster as these women claim, why would they care if he booked them again? Why would they WANT him to book them again?
I simply don't buy it. So many are always playing the victim, it's truly pathetic to me

If you have the ability to make a conscious decision of if you WANT to participate or not, how can you be a victim???

"What happens is them feeling like they have no choice. They're vulnerable," Rena says of many young, inexperienced models who assume the nude shot is par for the course if they want a career in modelling. There's fear, Harvey says, "that if they don't do what he wants, he's not going to book them again."


Harm their career? How? most of the times these individuals are going to TR for photos. With that being said, it's not as though all of these individuals have a requirement to get a TR photo, or loose the contract. Just as much as he's using them. They're sitting back playing the victim using him.
"yes, if I fuck TR, I bet I can get a portfolio"
I just don't like how no matter who makes the decisions, or what they are, it somehow ALWAYS falls on the MALE!

I don't blame him. I blame the womens love of fame.
I have heard many of stories of him using his name to have sex with women(but how many famous people don't???)
I have NEVER heard of him FORCING himself on someone.


Terry - "Yes I'll shoot you, but can we sleep together"
Model - "Yes, why not, if it'll get me the in front of your camera"

I don't see what the problem is, if she chose to sleep with him based on his name in the business, she's just as bad as he is. They are BOTH the cause of the problem, I don't see either being a victim. Fair exchange is no robbery.

Do you think the ceo who hires the sexy blonde receptionist because she wears revealing outfits to work a sleaze as well???


One thing I DONT understand is why everyone supports his work when it isn't good in my opinion.
My iphone with flash can create the same photos without me even looking. simply point and click
If there was no coercion, then yes the situation is "merely" unprofessional and inappropriate.  The perception of coercion on the part of the recipient is all that matters.

However a person in a position of power to affect the career of another insinuating or outright stating that sex will further their career or the refusal will damage the career IS sexual harassment and coercion.  The ability or inability of the victim to leave the situation is IRRELEVANT to the offense.  The alleged activities in the article suggest that young models felt trapped by his advances because of the potential for career damage.

Lots of careers deal with people who can make or break those who work for them.  The fact that someone can walk away doesn't mean the decision can't affect a career and doesn't make the situation not illegal.
People kill me with that. Their ability to leave is irrelevant???
Theres many of photographers in this world who can make a career. Stop going to the one looking for sex. You walk by a dog that is biting everyone, you expect to get bitten. Sounds like a bunch of nonsense. FOOLISHNESS! They need to stop whining and take their "talents" elsewhere.

Canon General / Re: New Technology Coming to Cinema EOS

It would be nice if they could update the CF drives for older cameras like the 5D3, once this comes out
There are many customers who simply wont buy a new camera when theirs is only 3 years old. wouldn't it be nice to make 250-300 off of them for something as simple as a cf replacement?

I find it odd, that if you check their ebay feedback, the last 25 straight(didn't read past the first page) ALL of them are NEGATIVE feedback.
many state that the 5D3's they are selling, are actually not even new, but used bodies

Has anybody had luck with the Mark III Raw at full 1080/24p with a CF with less than 1000x rating?
Yes, sandisk 600x cards allow for continuous 1080p shooting in raw. thats the only 600x card I tested that allowed it though

Lenses / Re: Patent: Canon EF 50 f/1.8 IS
« on: July 25, 2013, 05:23:06 PM »
The argument for IS being used mostly for video is ridiculous. Like said previously, serious video use requires a support system just like some types of serious photography require a tripod. IS was introduced to lenses far before the video feature was introduced to DSLR. People used to argue often about NOT having IS in the body, which was also ridiculous since optical IS is better than electronic IS. They have IS on wide angle lenses like 24mm and 28mm now, why would it be impractical at 50mm? Just turn it off if you don't like it, or buy the old version. Or troll on out of here to another brand =P

Incorrect! I know many shooters who use IS lenses for making music videos hand held. and I mean music videos that play on major networks. Not sure if you're into hip hop, but if so, Ace hood, bird man, Future, ring a bell?
Theres a young man by the name of Edgar Esteves who shoots these and many other talent videos. Before he moved on to Red cameras, he used 5d's all the time with guess what... IS lenses. Not everyone who would like this lens is shooting 100 million dollar motion pictures. IJS

  Re: Super Deal: Canon EOS 5D Mark III Body $2545
« Reply #20 on: Today at 02:21:09 PM »They had the same deal last week.  As I mentioned in a different thread, I called and was told there was no US warranty card, but I ordered one anyway last Wednesday evening, after they had closed for the day, and received it (free shipping) on Friday.  What I received was a kit minus the lens, which is fine with me.  It looks new (the shutter count was zero), it seems to work flawlessly (haven't tried video yet and may never do so), and unlike most of the digital cameras I've bought (including Pentax K-5, Canon 5DII and Olympus OM-D, my first copies of all of which I returned) the sensor is spotless.  So far, so good, then.  In the event I have a problem which Canon won't cover I'll report back....

May I ask how you know it was a Kits bundle?  Did it come w/the Kit's box?
I have read somewhere here, don't recall exactly, that Canon may or still honor the one year warranty even if it's purchased w/o the warranty card? 

I'm in the market for a 5D Mark III now...how many of you, if same w/me, would jump in on this deal?
at a $1,000 discount, forget a warranty as long as it's new. If any problems, you can pay for them and STILL come out better than buying from anywhere else at the msrp. Or so it seems to me...
