A TEACHER used photos of more than 30 schoolgirls to create child pornography.

Media teacher Brendan Cohen pleaded guilty to two charges of making child pornography — where he superimposed the faces of children “he found attractive” onto adult images and videos — and five charges of upskirting.

The Melbourne Magistrates Court heard 36 children aged between 11 to 17 were identified in pornographic images and a video, where their faces had been “photoshopped” onto naked adult female bodies engaged in explicit poses or sexual activity.

Further victims’ identities could not be established.

Police also discovered more than 80 upskirting videos, where Cohen covertly filmed students in classrooms, on the school grounds and with their mothers during parent teacher interviews.

The upskirting videos and pornographic images, created between 2015 and 2017, were discovered by police during searches at Bialik College and Mount Scopus Memorial College in May last year.
