    Default Celebrity photographer Terry Richardson is banned from working with major magazines

    Celebrity photographer Terry Richardson has been banned from working with several major fashion magazines amid resurfacing sexual harassment claims.

    Vogue, GQ and Vanity Fair are among those who were told to 'kill' any scheduled shoots with the snapper by parent group Condé Nast International.

    Richardson has been the subject of widespread allegations of sexually abusing models over his lengthy career -- accusations he has constantly denied.

    The 52-year-old New Yorker is known for incorporating explicit themes into his shoots, and directed the sexually-charged music video to Wrecking Ball by Miley Cyrus - which she later said she regrets.

    According to the Daily Telegraph, an email was circulated among staff of Condé Nast International after an article in a Sunday newspaper questioned the photographer's past.

    The email, sent by the firm's executive vice president James Woolhouse, said future articles with Richardson should be 'killed or substituted with other material'.

    He wrote: 'I am writing to you on an important matter. Condé Nast would like to no longer work with the photographer Terry Richardson.

    'Please could you confirm that this policy will be actioned in your market effective immediately. Thank you for your support in this matter.'

    Richardson's contract arrangements with Conde Nast had been in discussion for several months - but after an article was posted that questioned why he was still being 'feted by fashionistas' ties were officially cut.

    Allegations of sexual misconduct against Richardson have resurfaced in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal. However, there have been no new claims made against him.

    Weinstein brought sexual harassment in the work place back to the forefront after the New York Times published an investigation into sexual assault claims against him.

    The disgraced Hollywood mogul is now facing multiple accusations of sexual assault and harassment from more than 40 woman including actress Gwyneth Paltrow.

    On Friday, Richardson addressed allegations directed at him in recent days in a blog published on Huffington Post.

    He wrote: 'I collaborated with consenting adult women who were fully aware of the nature of the work, and as is typical with any project, everyone signed releases.

    'I have never used an offer of work or a threat of rebuke to coerce someone into something that they did not want to do.
    'I give everyone that I work with enough respect to view them as having ownership of their free will and making their decisions accordingly, and as such, it has been difficult to see myself as a target of revisionist history.'

    Richardson, who has worked with some of the biggest names in the music and fashion industry, including Beyonce and Lady Gaga, but also Marc Jacobs and Tom Ford, often appeared in his own work.

    He is also known to have a close relationship with Edward Enninful, the editor of British Vogue, who he was pictured arm-in-arm with last month at New York Fashion Week.

    Figures from within the modelling industry, including former i-D editor Caryn Franklin, said Richardson's behaviour has become an 'open secret'.

    While several models have condemned his conduct during shoots, others, including Daisy Lowe and Noot Seear, have previously come to his defence.

    In 2014, Vogue US made it clear they would no longer work Richardson.

    'The last assignment Terry Richardson had for US Vogue appeared in the July 2010 issue and we have no plans to work with him in the future,' a statement said at the time.

    MailOnline has contacted Richardson's representatives for comment.

    Funny how all of these magazines, production companies, academies, and the like are just now finding out what all of us on a gossip board have known for about a decade!

    It just blows me away that a guy who looks like the uncle who is not allowed at the family reunion was being treated as someone at the pinnacle of this profession.

    The worst part of this preemptive strike is that it proves they knew all along about his creepy behaviour. They just didn't bother to do something until it threatened the bottom line.
