Girls tricked in porn scam By LINDA PARRI NAIVE teenage girls are being exploited by predatory porn photographers, who approach them online with the promise of professional modelling portfolios. Tarryn Camp, 18, said she was 17 when she was contacted on popular modelling site, Model Mayhem and offered $60 an hour to pose for professional model photos. She said the photographer drove her to his Perth home and took photos of her in his bedroom, attempting to physically remove her knickers midway through the shoot. When she objected he tried to reason with her. As I left he handed me $60 and said to me girls know what theyre getting themselves into when they come here, the Perth teen said. Another photographer she met online removed his pants midway through a photo shoot in the backyard of his home. Emily Madison, 17, said when she was 16, a photographer drove her to a pine forest near Wanneroo. He dressed me up in little girl clothing, like schoolgirl outfits and videotaped me, she said. After three hours and a nipple slip which he refused to delete, I called someone to come pick me up. She said she later found the photos on a porn site.
