Celebrity photographer Terry Richardson has denied sexually assaulting young models during photo-shoots, saying he doesn't regret anything.

The 48 year-old, who has had a very controversial career, is defending himself against critics in the latest issue of New York Magazine, in which he features as the cover story.

When asked if he pressured models into doing anything they didn't want to, Richardson told the mag, "I don't have any regrets about the work at all."

"Obviously I don't ever want someone to feel like that. It was never my intention. But also, people do things, and then they have regrets, and that's also nothing to do with me. Then don't do pictures like that again.I'm okay with myself about everything, and that to me is the most important thing," he continued.

The American photographer, who has worked with the likes of Miley Cyrus, Taylor Swift, Lady Gaga Beyoncé, is still heavily in demand despite constantly being accused of harassing the models.

"It was never just me and a girl ever. It was always assistants, or other people around, or girls brought friends over to hang out," Richardson added. "It was very daytime, no drugs, no alcohol. It was a happening, there was energy, it was fun, it was exciting, making these strong images, and that's what it was. People collaborating and exploring sexuality and taking pictures."

Terry also discussed the most recent accusations put against him by British model Appleton, who posted a screenshot of a message allegedly from Richardson asking for sex. The text, which she shared on Instagram read: "If I can f--k you I will book you in [New York] for a shoot for Vogue."

He adamantly denied this and claimed the Instagram account Appleton used was a fake.

"So corny. Ridiculous. Who talks like that? When people call me a pedophile and f--king bulls--t, that's a horrible thing to say about someone," he said.
