Default SERIOUS Question....

Ok, so I have this girl / model, who keeps asking me to do a shoot with her. My number one rule that I will never break with the exception of kids, family photo's ect. I will not shoot anyone under 18 years of age. So here is the deal. This girl is now 17, at the time she started asking she was 16. Multiple piercings, punk style, gothic, ect. I know. My kind of model right. But again, under 18. Based on images that I have seen before. She has shown MAXIMUM cleavage, shorts with the booty hanging out, PROVOCATIVE poses and clothing. She insist that her parents sign consent forms for the photographers and attend every photo shoot. Which I find hard to believe. Before I go any further, no worries. I do not plan on shooting her. Anyway, She has a new set of images up today on her my space page. SHE IS COMPLETELY NAKED. Granted no pink parts are showing. But no clothes on! Period. So my question is. Is this not considered child porn. Aprental consent or not. This photographer, I feel, is completely nuts for taking those pics. I would grab and image and show. But believe me. I do not want those images on my computer at all. But here is her my space link if you are curious as to what I am talking about.

Is it just me. Or is this very damn close to child porn?

Uhm...this forum isn't really for those kinds of questions. You might want to edit and repost in G/E.

Oooh, tough call man. I'm not a professional photographer so I can't really help you on this. I'd just wait until she is 18 to cover your behind. Let's see what others have to say.

I am not shooting her even when she turns 18. I was just wondering what the heck this other photographer was thinking shooting her in that setting.

He was thinking 2 things.

One being and the other hoping that the check clears. Or at the very least thinking that if no naughty bits are showing, then its ok. Or at the worst, she lied about her age and he took her word for it.

But then again, what is the legal deffinition of child porn versus just innappropriate? If you dont see the genatalia or full breasts, then 'legally' it might be ok (not sure how butt shots are considered. But when you factor in a t-back shows everything anyway....). As for morally...Well, thats an individual decision. People were outraged at the Mylie Cyrus pics in (i think) people magazine last year. Shes like 15 years old and was only covered in a sheet or something.

But good for you for sticking to your guns and not photographing her, and possibly opening yourself up to legal issues.
