I just had to share with you this horrific story. A recently graduated actress who, ten years ago, went to a photographer’s flat for a test shoot and got some great pics. She went back the next day, after hearing she’d been booked on a £7k shoot – only to be drugged, raped, moved to another room and raped for three days by numerous men.

Only EVER agree to shoot with people your agency have scanned, who have been recommended by friends and who you can meet with for coffee first and preferably shoot in public with. It’s not worth taking the risk. This really could happen to any of us.
