"This is pedophilia"

David Hardman
David Hardman of Cocoa, Florida is the owner of and a photographer for the child modeling agency know as "Daylabay Productions." Hardman's website has caused him to cop some heat, when a local media outlet publicly exposed him:

BREVARD COUNTY, Fla. — Eyewitness News has learned a Brevard County man is now putting pictures of scantily clad pre-teen models on a Web site and investigators said there's nothing they can do to stop him. Eyewitness News first reported on David Hardman in November of 2006 when posting provocative pictures of teenage girls, but now the girls appear to be even younger.

The photo and video shoots often happen on Brevard County beaches, where we've all seen kids in bathing suits, but you don't see them in the kind of bathing suits and poses David Hardman photographs.

"I'm getting so f***ing sick of you guys hanging around for no g**damn reason," Hardman angrily told Eyewitness News.

He's angry with Eyewitness News for continuing to expose him, this time for little girls in thong bikinis and sexy poses. Hardman calls it modeling.

"You keep coming around, I'm gonna g**damn get ya," he said.

Since Eyewitness News first exposed his Web site, Hardman has photographed even younger girls, just 10 and 12 years old. The photo spreads are revealing, showing girls in bathtubs, lying in beds and it's all just barely legal.

Kevin Gillick is a long-time children's advocate. He publishes the Guardian Newspaper, a free daily that outs pedophiles.

"These are obviously salacious, seductive, sexual pictures, children in thongs, 13-year-olds in latex. This is a sexual fetish. This is pedophilia," he said. "No matter what way you stack it up, that's the way it is."
Most shocking for Gillick is that the Web site describes parents attending shoots. For a $500 fee, little girls get their own DVD, sold online for $39.

"The people who buy this are people who are interested in sex and that's the purpose. So, if you're going to have your daughter do this kind of modeling and you're gonna take money for ii, know that even though it's legal, you're having your child promoted for sex," Gillick said.

Law enforcement can't do much about it, as Hardman seems careful not to cross the legal line. Since Eyewitness News' first report last year, he said his neighborhood has turned on him.

"I've said all I'm gonna do. I'm gonna get more and more violent here if I continue to talk," he said.

Eyewitness News asked Hardman that if there is nothing wrong with those pictures to put Eyewitness News in touch with one of the parents he's paid for a shoot, but he refused.
