Again with the composites.  Sigh.

Update 07/10/2014 @ 11:45AM

When I was originally sent this submission I was getting ready to leave for a mini-vacation and didn’t have a chance to make a proper post.  I screen captured some images and left and started afresh today.  Since Alex is claiming the images he used for compositing came from the book “Compositing Secrets” and were legal to use I figured I’d add in the image that was removed before today that was absolutely NOT stock.  There are also a few other images that were not stock as well.

This photographer was caught when they replied to a want ad for a second shooter for a wedding with their website which is full of very recognizable work from other photographers.  Note that these images are all for sale on the website.  They also are on the slideshow at the opening of the website.

The other galleries appears to be their own work.

This guy claims he had his gear stolen at a wedding and has a crowd funding site set up… whoa.

Doug Gordon in Lindenhurst, NY Part Two

If you aren’t familiar with Doug Gordon’s past incident with plagiarism, here is the link to the post from last July.  The tl;dr summary is that last summer it was discovered that  Doug Gordon was not only plagiarizing tweets and Facebook statuses but also blog posts and his biography in various places on the internet including Facebook, Twitter and his websites.

Since the last post went live, Doug (and Jasmine) both were taken off of the speaking rosters at WPPI.   Doug did end up speaking at WPPI at the tradeshow in Nikon’s booth - he was recently named an ambassador of the brand.   However, outside of his own speaking tour Doug has not been speaking on many national platforms.  When the roster for Shutterfest was announced quite a few photographers expressed their displeasure of seeing Doug’s name among the list and a conversation started on Missy MWAC/Lynn Cartia’s Facebook page (same person, she had to change her name due to Facebook rules).  During the discussion, it was discovered that Doug’s new workshop bio was also plagiarized.  In referencing internet caches, it appears that his workshop website underwent a redesign this year and the “All About Us” blurb went live in March/April of 2014.

Update 06/23/2014 @ 8:00PM

Per Sal Cincotta, Doug has been removed from the lineup for Shutterfest and as a contributor to his magazine.

Update 07/09/2014 @ 5:00PM

Per F Stoppers, Doug is no longer a Nikon Ambassador. He is currently still listed as a speaker for Photo Plus Expo in October with Nikon listed as one of his sponsors.

As the summer season revs up, posting may be less frequent but I will try my best to keep up!

Another submission from St. Louis!!  Missouri seems to be hot on the heels of Georgia and Florida!  A reminder, again, that one should never use someone else’s images for mini session advertisements.

This wall of shame is dedicated to photographers that feel that it's okay to steal others' work and post it as their own. Oh I'm sorry, it's okay to let their "web designer" do it.
