    Photography theif exposed

    It never ceases to amaze me, that some photographers are comfortable to blatantly steal other peoples work, and pose it as their own. Here's another example of this...
    Living the dream...

    Got to be a bit hard to explain to customers she won from her webpage, why the images on her webpage were so good, when the ones she took of their wedding weren't so good.

    The positive from this story has to be how quickly she got jumped on by other photographers calling for her to own up to her deceit. Just goes to show that, on the internet, you can run but you can't lie.

    I know the feeling, I found that one of my photo won first place in the photo comp. When I informed the company running the show that it was not there photo I never heard back from them.

    Not worth the stress as it was a good photo that I still use in the media packs.

    I believe in karma

    The fact she took so many other peoples work just makes me shake my head. Did she do no work of her own that was worth putting up? Imagine seeing such good work on her website, employing her thinking you were getting the best, then finding out you brought a pig that couldn't take or process photos. Geez. I'm glad they pounced on her. I bet she copped an earful from hubby haha

    Whilst I in no way approve of what the thief did, and believe she thoroughly deserves the backlash that occurred, I feel I must give her some credit for having the courage to so quickly publicly & unconditionally apologizing. A lot of people in her situation would have either not cared, or shut down the sites and hid.

    Too little too late for me, unless she attached a sorry letter to a cheque :P

    Yeah, I agree, a sorry letter in form of cheque to those she ripped off would be a better solution.
