Conde Nast International, the publishing house behind Vogue and Glamour, has dropped renowned fashion photographer Terry Richardson from its books, with staff being told the changes will be in place immediately.
As noted by The Telegraph, James Woolhouse, Condé Nast's executive vice president and the chief operating officer sent a message to the company's presidents in various countries on Monday morning, which says -"I am writing to you on an important matter". "Any shoots that have been [commissioned] or any shoots that have been completed but not yet published, should be killed and substituted with other material".
Wonderland Magazine, which featured a Richardson photo shoot in February, refused to comment.
The snapper has been dogged for years by allegations of sexually exploiting models, which he has always denied.

Conde Nast International acted a day after Britain's Sunday Times newspaper questioned why Richardson was "still feted by fashionistas" despite "gaining a reputation as the Harvey Weinstein of fashion".
Richardson's work is known in the industry as sexually explicit, The Telegraph noted.
"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", Richardson wrote in a 2014 blog post on the Huffington Post. "I have never utilized an offer of work or a risk of reproach to constrain somebody into something that they would not like to do", he said.
While many considered the cameraman's antics to be tongue-in-cheek, low-brow art that blurred the line between old-school pornography and high fashion, those who worked with him told a different story.
