The sad truth is this happens more than we would like to admit. Hearing a photographer steal another's work as their own to pull in clients is truly terrifying especially for something as precious as a wedding. In this video Pye talks about the occurrences that take place multiple times per month to every day photographers just like you and hopefully sheds some light on how we can help keep this from happening again.Shawn and Amrita, just like any newly engaged couple, went on the search for their ideal wedding photographer to shoot their special day. Little did they know that said photographer was using another's photos to promote on his/her website to bring in clients. Check out the video to hear their story along with how Pye believes we can bring a more respectful and honest industry from photographers.
I have seen this happen to many friends of mine in the industry and it's heartbreaking for the clients involved in every instance. Thankfully Pye was kind enough to offer a complimentary session to the couple in a style they were hoping for from the start just proving our industry is more likely to succeed and create better relationships and stories with hard work and a continued respect for the industry and others.
