    "An Orlando [FL] photographer who specialized in photos of children was arrested after authorities determined that he was distributing child pornography via the Internet, newly released documents show.

    The arrest affidavit for 53-year-old John Earl Hunttindicates that an investigator for the state Attorney General's office began an investigation of child pornography distribution on Nov.10, 2010.

    On his website and MySpace page, Huntt described himself as a professional photographer whose work had been published in magazines.

    The investigator traced pornographic videos being distributed via the Gnutella peer-to-peer network to Huntt's address, according to the arrest report....

    During an interview with authorities, Huntt admitted downloading the files and moving them to external hard drives.

    Looks like Huntt's MS page is closed and his website has been "suspended" (did they hire someone to specifically stay one step ahead of WSers?) but I found this:

    "GraphiXolutions / John E. Huntt

    Thank you for visiting my portfolio. I'm always looking to expand my experience and expertise in all areas. I welcome and appreciate any help, guidance, and suggestions.

    I am looking to build my business. I want it to be both fun and profitable but most especially fun. My philosophy is that my job is not complete until you are completely and totally satisfied.

    Unlike a lot of other photographers I REALLY want to help you build your portfolio
    and make the best decisions for you career. I don't have any hidden agenda."


    Wonder if that's some form of code to other traders? Only problem is that he did and he didn't do such a great job in hiding it.

    not sure of the rules here but I can throw you a link to his MS cached Missizzy if its allowed. The rules on the social network, open not open deal always get me confused.

    The link to the cached MS was one I located via a google search on another photographers blog wo was not very complientary about Mr. Huntt

    Let me check with a mod as I think we can post snips from a closed MS page, as long as no related children are shown.

    Also, I noted some interesting comments here:

    http://discussions.orlandosentinel.c...st-20110107/10

    ".....If fact John told me he only takes pictures that the parents want him to take and the outfits are up to the parents. He is paid for a job. That he has daughter, and would not want anyone taking pictures of his daughter that he didn't want them to! I have talked to some parents that their child pictures was on the NEWS! I know 15 girls in our area john Has Taken their pictures and the parents have talked them. NOTHING HAS HAPPENED THE WAY THEY ARE TELLING IT!....."

    from a much longer post. Also several comments that Huntt had had complaints and that he'd been warned.

    Well, we can certainly post a link to a blog discussing the case and let people check things out for themselves. You might want to check some things cached here:

    I noticed at least one high profile child model on his FB. Not unusual.

    This guy is full of it. Pure BS.

    Exclamation Fbi tampa need help

    The FBI has requested help from the public in this case. They have found child pornography with children as young as five years old in creepers posession.

    If anyone has taken their children to this guy for photographs they are asked to contact Tampa police.

    This is soooooooooo not good. This guy was almost definately using kids that were brought in for professional photographs. IMO



    Ohhhhhhh he has himself as his friend on his Facebook. No beard in that one and sans camera.

    Filly--Can you imagine the poor parents who know their child was photographed by this guy? No doubt he groomed them even more than the kids. My heart really goes out to them. I'm sure he picked and chose very very carefully. I know just how it feels to be "tricked into trusting". Sickening.

    I wonder if he finessed the kids to such a degree they didn't actually know what was going on or if he threatened them.

    Oh, they are so danged good at what they do, aren't they?
