Sorry for the radio silence, it’s wedding season!

This photographer was sent to me and it appears he only has a Facebook presence but please let me know if you find a URL he is using.  Apparently this guy has been on some reality show (Real Housewives of Vancouver I think?).  It doesn’t mean that you still can’t be a thief though.  The images that I haven’t listed below are stock or I can’t find the original source due to Pinterest stealing, none of the images in this gallery appear to be Doman’s original work.

Stolen image with a bonus “story” about how the image came to be.  Notice the watermarking?  That’s funny.

image

I can’t find the original source but I had to include the image because the story surrounding it was amusing and kind of creepy he’s wanting little girls to work for him as “models” for catalogs.

Same thing as Facebook – mostly stock image and the one image from Photography by Nadean.

I’m sorry for the lack of posts lately, I have been getting thieves but my paying job (my photography business) comes before the one I don’t get paid for.  

This is another user submitted fauxtographer and it’s a fun one.  Yes, I realize it’s mostly all stock but when your WHOLE WEBSITE is stock I may just out you.  They mention in their blog they had a name change and I wonder if they’ve been caught at it before or had clients complain when their work didn’t match up with their galleries. 

Their Website:

image

The image header is actually a place holder used in the Late August template from Pro Photo, although oddly enough the template Bella Crave is using is the Sunny California one and it is NOT included with this template.  The original image is by Dustin Francis

PS:  It is crazy how many photographers keep in the above image header in the Late August template for their site.  I’m tempted to have a blog post dedicated JUST to those photographers.  There is THAT many.

There’s more but I think you get the gist. 

Their Facebook:

The profile picture is one of the stock images above (bride and groom with umbrella).  The cover image is either stolen from a videographer or is Google sourced, I’m not sure which.

Update:

Lovely message I got from the people behind Bella Crave. 

image

FYI: I haven’t sent you a single email and it wasn’t Craig who emailed me.  I actually had multiple people email me from the Milwaukee area but not Craig. 

Also, the image header was *not* purchased.  Many of the images you claim to own also didn’t come up on stock sites.  The vast majority of the images on your site in the galleries is stock images, not a mix of the both.  There was only TWO images in the wedding gallery I didn’t find a source for and NONE in the engagement gallery.  The children portrait site is almost all stock images.  So, I’m sorry but there’s very little “mix” there. 

I removed the image but the fact remains that the images you are using in your galleries do NOT match your work. 

Finally, you did steal something, you plagiarized. 

Your blog post about 8 questions you should ask a photographer is stolen.
