Several models have come forward about famed fotog Terry Richardson’s inappropriate behavior on shoots — and now it looks like the backlash has already begun.

Insiders have told HollywoodLife.com that photographer Terry Richardson — who shoots everything from Vogue, H&M, Lacoste, Leonardo DiCaprio, Lindsay Lohan, Jay-Z, and most recently the Jersey Shore cast! — will no longer be shooting for the fashion line H&M.

Richardson has a worked with H&M, shooting their campaigns, for years.  (Like above, with model Natasa Vojnovic from the spring/summer 2010 campaign.)

But amongst new reports of impropriety — like from supermodel Rie Rasmussen, who told Page Six that Terry took advantage of underage girls — he may be facing a backlash from his longtime employer. (Model Jamie Peck also accused Terry of sexual misconduct.)

Terry has strongly denied these allegations on his blog, saying, “I just want to take a moment to say I’m really hurt by the recent and false allegations of insensitivity and misconduct. I’ve always been considerate and respectful of the people I photograph and I view what I do as a real collaboration between myself and the people in front of the camera.”

But the suggestion of such a reputation might be enough to scare off H&M, who has yet to get back to us on our story. Terry Richardson has not returned calls either. But, if the news is true, could other brands be next to stop working with the famous fotog?
