Models accuse photographers of harassment

Fashion Photographers Bruce Weber and Mario Testino Accused of Sexual Assault

Lawyers for both photographers said they were "dismayed and surprised" by the claims.

In a statement to the New York Times, Bruce Weber called the allegations "untrue", also stating that he "had never touched the models inappropriately".

During these sessions, the models claim that Weber asked them to touch themselves and him, and claim that he allegedly touched them as well.

Another model, Robyn Sinclair said, "I remember him putting his fingers in my mouth, and him grabbing my privates". A lot of touching. "A lot of molestation", at Weber's hands.

The allegations against the Peruvian photographer go back to the mid-1990s and include groping and masturbation, according to the New York Times.

The allegations from Testino's 13 accusers span decades. To that end, agent Gene Kogan explained to The Times: "It was general practice to give a model a heads-up about a specific photographer who we knew had a certain reputation".

You may not know Mario Testino's name, but you know his work.

Lavely & Singer, a law firm that represents Testino, questioned the credibility of people who complained of harassment, and also wrote that it had spoken to several former employees who were "shocked by the allegations" and that they "could not confirm any of the claims".

Lawyers acting for Testino, who is famous for his fashion portraits and photographs of the Royal Family, dismissed the models' accounts, while Weber's lawyers have also denied the claims, the paper said.

"Today, allegations have been made against Bruce Weber and Mario Testino, stories that have been hard to hear and heartbreaking to confront".

Tillman said Testino's brother came into the room and made the photographer get off Mr. Tillman.
