Metro Police detectives are seeking additional potential victims of a Las Vegas photographer who was arrested on charges of child pornography in November.

William Thompson, 52, was arrested on Nov. 25 after Metro Police's Sexual Assault Section received information that he reportedly took photos and videos of a juvenile in “sexually explicit situations.” Police said Thompson allegedly used the child as a model for several months operating at Storybook Studios located in the 3300 block of West Craig Road.

Thompson’s website indicates that he predominately took headshot photos of juveniles as well as wedding photos.

Thompson was booked into Clark County Detention Center where he faces seven counts of use of a minor in the production of pornography.

Police said investigation into the incident remains ongoing. Thompson’s court date is scheduled for Jan. 22.

Metro Police urge anyone who has concerns that their child may have been a victim of Thompson to call authorities at (702) 828-3421, or to remain anonymous, contact Crime Stoppers at (702) 385-5555 or at crimestoppersofnv.com.
