A photographer has been designated as a & # 39; dedicated pedophile & # 39; after he has received the confidence of parents and sexually abused his children in a series of nauseating attacks.
Kye John Tanson, 41, went to the Brisbane District Court on Wednesday for a conviction session after pleading guilty of sixty child abuse offenses committed between 1997 and 2015, Courier mail reported.
Of the allegations, 11 included cases of rape against 15 children – nine of the victims were girls, six were boys.
Prosecutors have given Tanson a & # 39; master manipulator & # 39; and & # 39; dedicated pedophile & # 39; called.
Tanson met his victims, especially teenagers, in the Wide Bay and south-east region of Queensland, through activities such as board game meetings, single parent support groups, medieval re-enactment events or his guidance task.

& # 39; He would use public events, public forums to get close to the victims and their families & # 39 ;, Attorney General Chris Cook told the court.
& # 39; He said he used photography to help troubled teenagers to get out of their homes and away from their parents. & # 39;
In one case, Tanson tied up a boy and photographed – whom he met during a board game – and showed the child pornography.
The court heard that Tanson would gain the trust of families and later oneto sleepovers where games from & # 39; Truth or Dare & # 39; would be played and alcohol would be consumed.
But the activities would lead to the children being molested and raped, often while they slept.
The court heard that Tanson was taking photos of a 13-year-old girl while sleeping in her underwear.
In a separate incident, he digitally raped a 12-year-old girl while she was sleeping.
& # 39; Mr. Tanson has cleverly won the trust of these children, but also their family, especially their parents, & # 39; said Mr. Cook.
& # 39; Mr. Tanson was a master manipulator.
& # 39; He brought these children through humiliating experiences. His motivation seemed to be his own sick sexual satisfaction. & # 39;

After Tanson had a child, he went to a support group for & # 39; Parents without partners & # 39 ;, where he made friends with other parents.
Tanson befriended a family and later raped the nine-year-old daughter and bit her nipple while she slept.
He only stopped when she awoke, the court heard.
In what prosecutors called the worst of his insults, he met a girl on Facebook and maintained a two-and-a-half years relationship with her.
After they had sex for the first time, he asked her to claim in a letter that she was 16 when she was just 13.
He was going to rape her seven times anal.
Tanson also abused a 13-year-old girl for 18 months and claimed that he was in love with her.
He asked her to marry him, but became verbally aggressive towards her when the relationship ended.
Mr. Cook said that Tanson had no hope of rehabilitation.
Tanson will be sentenced later today.
