Ok, this is an interesting discovery.    There's the whole debate if it's legal or not for girls to be modeling in something relatively sexy. Especially at the ages listed.   Herein lies the question. 

They'll not only hire models, but there's a membership for people that want to join to see the pictures for a monthly fee (ok, that's creep-a-riffic.)  And they do their own shooting it seems.   (The fee

The site is "Southern Teen Models"

Is it legal?  And is this the direction fast money photography is going to go?

They seem to think they are.

http://www.southernteenmodels.com/legal.html

"SOUTHERN TEEN MODELS features female models between the ages of 13-17.  We are not an agency and no model is under exclusive contract. All images comply with state and federal laws, (U.S.Code: Title 18, part 1)   all models were photographed  under supervision of a parent and we have obtained  full release to publish these images.  All images are the sole property of STM and may not be used for any other purpose.. You will find no pornographic or suggestive images on this site.  STM will issue no refunds for any reason."

While I suspect this is not illegal, I sure as hell would not want any adult that subscribed to this site, anywhere near my teen kids.

Creepy.as.fuck.

theres a woman photographer near me (not on mm)  that solicits on craigslist for 13-17 year old gals to do bathing suit, pajamas, and prom style photos that are playful but also very suggestive in nature and sells photosets of it on her site marketed to pervs greater than i.    however the parents keep signing up their kids to work with her because she is a lady and can't possible be a creepo lol  (take one look at me folks and i will prove that theory wrong haha)

yeah but your creepy in a good way! tongue

Sounds just like the true teen babe website. The guy use to run it out of Florida but moved to AZ or Nevada to run in now where the laws are less strick. He has been to court numerous times but nothing illegal about. And yes moms sign their kids up for that sick shit!!!

Totally fuckin' creepy in a totally pervy way!

LOL if you are a creepo I will take that any day!   As for the website, looks innocent enough on the front, but with the models ages and the dress or wardrobe and poses.............someone's dad or mom needs to give this guy a good ass woopin he wont soon forget.    anyone know what the paying members have access to?
