Who Supports and Funds Terry Richardson? GQ and Bazaar, for Starters

Since 2010, women have been accusing photographer Terry Richardson of inappropriate behavior on the set of photo shoots. But many publications have hired Richardson — repeatedly — since the allegations surfaced.

In a new, exclusive letter sent to Page Six, Richardson calls the claims a "witch hunt" and insists that the accounts from models who felt coerced and sexually harrassed are "lies."

People have become comfortable concocting hate-filled and libelous tales . . . In writing this, I make a humble attempt at correcting these rumors…

I collaborated with consenting adult women who were fully aware of the nature of the work, and as is typical with any project, everyone signed releases . . . I have never used an offer of work or a threat of rebuke to coerce someone into something that they did not want to do. I give everyone that I work with enough respect to view them as having ownership of their free will and making their decisions accordingly.


Shooting a model and then whipping out your dick and suggesting she touch it may not technically be a threat or coercion, but it's also not very professional, and creates a problematic dynamic, since a model is meant to be guided by and obey a photographer. And yet! Terry Richardson is getting lots of work.

Below: A comprehensive list of Terry Richardson's magazine clients since the first allegation in 2010. This list does not include the high-profile, very profitable ad campaigns he has shot (among them: Aldo, Valentino and Tom Ford) and it does not include music videos, like Beyoncé's "XO." This is purely editorial work.

The venerable men's publication — first printed in 1957 and now owned by Condé Nast — works with Richardson extensively. The Creative Director is Jim Moore; the Senior Photo editor, Krista Prestek, has been there for 8 years.
