Famous photographer Terry Richardson was just banned by top fashion magazines this week after years of being accused of sexual harassment by models. Now there’s a book being sold on Amazon that photographers are speaking out about. It’s titled: An Introduction to Camera Game: How to Seduce Women Through Photography.
