Atlanta Photographer Arrested for Hidden Camera in Dressing Room

Atlanta photographer charged with two felonies after a hidden camera was found in a dressing room.

Fox 5 Atlanta reports police arrested an Atlanta studio photographer and charged with reportedly hiding inside a dressing room to take photos of his subjects.

According to reports, the camera was discovered by one of three teen girls who were in the studio last month.  As the three teens were undressing, one made a joke about how she heard that cameras would be hidden to take pictures.

Police said all the teens became curious and went over to a table to check an empty tissue box. They said the box felt warm and discovered a small go pro camera inside, Fox 5 reports.

Police launched an investigation and filed two felonies against David Duong. He has been charged with eavesdropping and sexual exploitation of a minor because one of the teen girls is 17.

This is not uncommon. In July 2015, reports surfaced that an assistant director of Insurgent filmed dozens of innocent young women. According to, the assistant director, who previously worked on The Lone Ranger and Pirates of the Caribbean. He was arrested in 2015 and charged with secretly filming models as they changed in their dressing rooms at a car commercial, which shot in Los Angeles.

Jezebel spoke to two of the women who were secretly filmed by the AD. Saying, “He had access to everybody because he would run the base camp on a shoot,” said one of them, who worked with Roy and whom we’ll refer to as “Jane.” Base camp is where all the trailers, changing rooms; bathrooms are set up for the cast and crew. “No woman is safe with him on set,” she said.
