A Tumblr Site Aimed at Outing Photo Thieves
It’s sometimes hard for me to believe that people can be so unscrupulous as to blatantly
take steal someone else’s work and pan it off as their own. But sadly it happens far more often than we are aware of. Which is why someone has created a Tumblr site dedicated to outing offenders in our industry. So, if you catch wind of a “photographer” or service that is clearly ripping off your fellow shooters you should consider submitting the intel to Photo Stealers Submit Form.
An Excerpt from Photo Stealers:
“Coleen is based in the UK and instead of just lifting a few images here and there, she not only stole all of the images from a photographer but commissioned a website design exactly like his. No sweetie, just because you changed the colors doesn’t mean it is like totally different!
Her original URL is down but here is the mirror site from her web designer: http://dev.swiftcreations.co.uk/coleensullivan/index.html
