By the time I was alerted to this thief, the owners of the photos have mostly done what they should and reported the image theft to the web site host and Facebook so many of the images are down, but not all.  There is also a couple images that are stock images that are being used.  Her website online has already been taken down from the owners of the images filing DMCA’s so that’s a plus!

UPDATE:  

Most images have been removed but there are still some stock images on her page.  She is getting pretty nasty back at people commenting on her Facebook Page about the stolen works and calling the owners of the images “snoody” for asking her to remove them.

UPDATE #2:

It appears her Facebook Page is down, possibly gone depending if she or Facebook took it down for the multiple DMCA reports.

  • She re-branded

    Same number same name on the email address.

    • U Really That Dumb?

      Uh yeh. The email is her name so no way getting out of that one.

    • Melinda Potter

      Looks to be all her own images this time though *yikes*

      • It seems so .. I guess it was a lesson learned.

      • KimJ

        She has something against limbs – she keeps on cutting them off.

  • KimJ

    Somebody is really pissed off https://www.facebook.com/ann.hummel.39

    • U Really That Dumb?

      Screen cap please as the link isn’t working. Perhaps it’s a country limit issue or deleted.

      • U Really That Dumb?

        FB is glitchy.

        • Sniff Sniff … awww LOL

          • U Really That Dumb?

            Allergies Joseph?
            Seasonal, food, or photo stealers?

          • Just my sarcasm allergies.

      • KimJ

        Next time, sorry she was quick on this. I will post links next time with screen caps.

    • Personally she should ignore it … responding is just letting others know that she stole images in the past … smh

    • U Really That Dumb?

      Really? You stole! End of story!
      As for reporting. Read the TOS as well as the law. You’re looking the fool!

      • Lindsay11

        Wah wah cyberbullies. Not as good as “blah blah fuckers” but…

      • You can’t fix stupid

        She removed that from her FB page. Truth catching up

  • KimJ

    Her friends have joined in … must be

    • KimJ

      Yip they are friends

    • KimJ

      Here

    • Guest

      It is her hubby

    • Guest

      Super quiet now since I posted the link

    • U Really That Dumb?

      I’m so happy that you gave yourself five stars!
      SMH

      • Lindsay11

        It is SUPER gross when they give themselves 5 stars, blech! Also, why is she alerting her clients to this? “These people are pointing out my flaws and that I’m a thief and even though it’s true I want you all to know about it so you can go defend me!”

        I hope So You Think You Are a Photographer does another entry on her and makes it a point to link to this page too. (Maybe they did the first time, I missed the post) How about for this one on the train tracks? (Right next to a turn for last minute train appearance, so intelligent!) https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=427989657343435&set=a.151740294968374.38375.100003972129795&type=1&theater

        • doncalifornia

          It’s the same spot in all the photos. So now we know where she’ll get someone killed some day.

          • Too bad we can;t figure out where it is so we could signal this to the rail authority.

          • U Really That Dumb?

            We know where it is. Shenandoah, Virginia
            There is a rail line that runs through town.

          • Lindsay11

            I feel bad upvoting this, I certainly don’t want anyone to get hurt! It makes all these photos even more menacing. Please stop doing this Emily! Or, I dunno, if you really do have to keep your rep as the stupid fauxtographer who poses innocent children on train tracks, maybe move to a long stretch where there isn’t a blind turn and you can see the train coming easier?

  • You can’t fix stupid

    Hubby had to join in

    • You can’t fix stupid
      • Justin Case

        YEAH! A new word! I wanna b a ‘en-trap-aneur’ (’cause it rhymes with ‘manure’)
        I think it means ‘catching people doing stupid shit’

      • Lindsay11

        “This is my husband there fort knox”

        …What? Is… she saying her husband is Fort Knox? Stationed at Fort Knox? So she’s threatening to sic her husband on people? LOL

  • BullShite

    Looks like the post on FB is now missing? Regardless, she’s called more attention to it than just leaving it there would. We should call this the “Fauxtog Effect”, because the “Striesand Effect” doesn’t QUITE fit, but close.

    • Lindsay11

      Yeah she mentioned she removed the photo so it won’t share on the page anymore. This is a great way to get fauxtogs to remove photos evidently!

  • BullShite

    There is NO WAY she has ever run a legitimate small business, ever. You can NOT run a small business legitimately and not understand that all businesses are listed on a publicly accessible website. This means that if someone is injured or god forbid killed on the train tracks, the families involved can look forward to getting no compensation. SMH

    • Lindsay11

      I can’t find this particular conversation, where is it?

      • BullShite

        Go to the SYTYAP page, and on the sidebar her husband Parker posted something. It’s in one of the upper threads that came off of that post.

        • Lindsay11

          Looks like she deleted her comments! I know some of you out there got the whole conversation saved! … right?

          “Whatever you say, thanks!”

          • BullShite

            You mighta been blocked.

          • Lindsay11

            Hmm… I doubt it, because I haven’t posted anything anywhere about her? Unless she can see I visited her pages? So you can still see her comments?

            And thanks for pointing me in the right direction!

          • She blocked me 🙂
            I never said anything about her work..

  • peaceetc

    I see a whole slew of new posts on here, but I am too dizzy at the moment to play catch up. I just can’t leave you people alone for five minutes without stirring up something or other. Now, tell me everything in ten words or less. Pictures help, but no words on the pictures. Unless they’re memes. Memes are good. 😉

    • Lindsay11

      SYTYAAP posted about Emily. Emily lies & takes bad pictures.

      • peaceetc

        Excellent summary! My brain has properly processed it and it is understood. Thanks, Lindsay. 🙂

      • Helena

        LOL

    • Lindsay11
      • peaceetc

        Perfect!

    • Lindsay11

      Also, why are you dizzy? I hope you are ok!

      • peaceetc

        Eh, I have inner ear problems, so I’m always dizzy. It gets worse at times, though, especially when I overdo it, and I overdid it over the weekend… so now I need to pay for it. It will pass. Thank you for your concern, though. I appreciate it.

  • Lindsay11

    Here’s a timeline of things discovered about Emily. (Sorry it’s not 10 words Celine! But there are pictures!)

    Emily Hummel was discovered to be a photo thief previous to June 11, 2012 and removed some things before it could be documented but Corey has some of it.

    Corey posted this page about Emily Hummel on June 11, 2012. The page that we have been looking at recently was created on June 11, 2012. https://www.facebook.com/ann.hummel.39

    I like this quote from Corey from the top of the page and it should go here I think, I’m guessing this also happened in June 2012. “She is getting pretty nasty back at people commenting on her Facebook Page about the stolen works and calling the owners of the images “snoody” for asking her to remove them.”

    The Southern Photography facebook page was created July 15, 2012. https://www.facebook.com/SouthernDaysPhotography/info

    In July 2013 she claims she’s been a photographer for 10 years, off and on, and that she’s been in business since 2006. Please note where it says LICENSED: UNKNOWN http://www.angieslist.com/companylist/us/va/shenandoah/southern-days-photography-reviews-7835634.htm

    In December 2013 this review is posted. “HORRIBLE WEDDING PICS!! Only about 20 out of 300 edited & most pics were of people eating, falling down or not looking PLUS there were pics of someone elses wedding on my cd to boot! My mother recently passed away a week ago & my wedding was the last chance I got to see her & I never got one single photo with her! Hate the price & hate thqat cd! If you think I’m making this up just to give a bad review w or something, I can & WILL send you a copy of our wedding cd to prove it! DO NOT GET YOUR WEDDING PICS DONE HERE!!!”

    In April 2014 she’s posted here as a new business opening up. http://shenandoahnewz.com/index.php/other-newz/500-new-businesses-openng-in-shenandoah.html

    She posts this meme in May 2014. Sorry, it’s not important, but it does make me laugh. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=394149690727432&set=pb.100003972129795.-2207520000.1405972560.&type=3&src=https%3A%2F%2Ffbcdn-sphotos-h-a.akamaihd.net%2Fhphotos-ak-xap1%2Ft1.0-9%2F10262124_394149690727432_6794820407032148932_n.jpg&size=571%2C428

    She starts a Pinterest page http://www.pinterest.com/sdaysphotograph/southern-days-photography/ and Linkedin https://www.linkedin.com/pub/southern-days-photography/81/a94/196

    May 2014 a (local, I’m assuming) newspaper writes about her. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=394603377348730&set=a.151856454956758.38417.100003972129795&type=1&relevant_count=1

    Joseph found her rebranded name, Southern Days Photography on July 19, 2014. (Two years Joseph? C’mon! 😉

    She absolutely LOVES to shoot on railroad tracks! I mean, this is kinda her thing, I bet she is known for it or something. This is the one SYTYAAP posted, but since Emily Hummel removed it, this is the only screenshot of this particular railroad track photo of which I know. http://a.disquscdn.com/uploads/mediaembed/images/1170/5357/original.jpg https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=420290701446664&set=a.151740294968374.38375.100003972129795&type=1&relevant_count=1 https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=427989657343435&set=pb.100003972129795.-2207520000.1405972546.&type=3&src=https%3A%2F%2Fscontent-b-dfw.xx.fbcdn.net%2Fhphotos-xpa1%2Ft31.0-8%2F10497443_427989657343435_2733580781642637713_o.jpg&smallsrc=https%3A%2F%2Fscontent-b-dfw.xx.fbcdn.net%2Fhphotos-xfp1%2Ft1.0-9%2F10561526_427989657343435_2733580781642637713_n.jpg&size=2048%2C1365

    She was posted to the So You Think You Are A Photographer page on facebook today, 7/21/14. She proceeds to post all over that page and her own, crying about cyber bullies and rallying her friends and family and clients to tell facebook to remove the page. (Bullshite suggests we call this the “Fauxtog Effect” in honor of the Streisand Effect.) Her husband posts a review about the page and they both ignore several questions, claim she has her business registered when she clearly doesn’t, etc etc. A few fangirls come to her defense in the usual way.

    I think that’s all caught up to speed? If I’ve missed something or gotten something wrong, please let me know and I’ll add/adjust the timeline. Attached are some screenshots of things I’ve mentioned in case they get removed.

    I don’t see much that she has stolen anything. I’m researching a few things still. I just wanted to make sure we were all up to speed, 🙂

    • BullShite

      The photo with just the woman and child…. her chin is melting into her neck.

    • U Really That Dumb?

      This is what happens when I go to do some real work for eight hours a day!!! That will teach me!
      Great synopsis!
      Looks like she has 20 less than positive reviews. Interesting reading!
      https://www.facebook.com/SouthernDaysPhotography/reviews

      • U Really That Dumb?

        Looks like a lot of people are on to her game of attacking others, then blocking them.

        Pffft likely excuse, everyone knows that cult members here don’t have lives!

        I didn’t see those other reviews, it is interesting she has so many negative ones, I don’t think I’ve seen anyone get that many. I also find it interesting there’s a lot of reviews with no stars that just say “so and so sent me here” so I’m guessing she had a contest or something?

      • You think that’s bad? I’ve been away camping for a week.

        • Lindsay11

          Welcome home!

        • Helena

          I can beat that. I had a baby.

            HAHAHAHAHA! She’s adorable too, I’ve been waiting for you to post a birth announcement here!

          • U Really That Dumb?

            Whatever! It’s your own damn fault! LOL 🙂

          • Helena

            I accept no more than 50% of the blame!

        haha I’m sorry! I tried to make it not headache inducing.

    • You can’t fix stupid

      Hubby said they had permission to shoot.

    • Photo Stealers

      Thank you! I’ve been out of town for the past two weeks and am FINALLY home and trying to catch up.

      • Lindsay11

        You are welcome! We are so glad to have you back, you were missed! Hope you had a good time. 🙂

  • U Really That Dumb?

    Because removing them from the front of the page makes it all go away… Boy does she have a bad case of CRI!
    https://www.facebook.com/SouthernDaysPhotography?sk=reviews

    • You can’t fix stupid

      Her hubby said that they had permission to photograph on the tracks – bullshit. Do they think that we are all so stupid? What an idiot.

    • Melinda Potter

      “I know you all want to be apart of this” lol yes, “apart” exactly!

      • U Really That Dumb?

        She won’t get it!

  • U Really That Dumb?

    Oh Emily, you truly do have CRI! “Listing” your business with your town does NOT make it legal in the state OR with the IRS!

    • BullShite

      *facepalm*

      Being this blatantly open with an unregistered business…. man I would NOT do that. I don’t know about VA law, but where I live, you can’t even get permission to put up a physical sign on your building without involving the Sate. How she’s gotten away with being unlicensed with an actual physical “storefront” is beyond me.

      Oddly enough you actually have to fill out PAPERWORK at a STATE OFFICE and PAY A FEE. Once you do this you receive a BIN #

      Without that BIN# you CAN NOT open a business bank account. Therefor the “extra” income made from this “business” is NOT being properly filed.

      Without this BIN# you CAN NOT recive business insurance, which NO ONE should run a business without. Your (joint if you are married) finances are NOT protected from a lawsuit if you are unregistered, uninsured. This is what the “LLC” means after most small businesses names. This means if you injure or KILL someone (like on train-tracks) they can come after everything, of you and your spouse. But hey, bankruptcy right?

      You are also required to pay a yearly “Annual Report Fee” to your state.

      This is business 101 garbage. It’s NOT THAT HARD TO DO.

    • Marc W.

      HA. She doesn’t know how building numbering works in towns. There is no “507 First Street” in that town.

    • U Really That Dumb?

      This is from the state. You MUST register your business with them!

  • U Really That Dumb?

    Hey Parker and Emily,

    What part of THIEF and FRAUD do you not understand?

    What part of YOU brought this on yourself don’t you understand?

    Had you both kept your mouth shut, you wouldn’t have opened up this can of worms again. However now, YOU have brought Southern Days Photography of Shenandoah, Virginia to the front page of Photo Stealers, AGAIN! Remember that Google will now and forever associate you with STEALING IMAGES!

    By the way, threatening someone like this is also illegal. Under Brady if anyone were to file for a restraining order you would loose all access to guns. Your words on the SYTYAP page are enough for any judge to order a restraining order. Based on your FB timeline that would really piss you off.

    Both of you need to get some help for your anger issues! As so many people pointed out on Facebook, YOU NEED HELP!

    Please let us know how all of this is working for you? I’m guessing not so well.

    • BullShite

      That woman BTW? The one who said her wedding photos were a disaster right before her mother died? Well, according to her one star rating on Emily’s page, she’s also talking to a lawyer, and was pointed in the direction of this page. I hope she DOES sue, in the least to get the return of whatever money she put into this moron, and I am pretty sure that Emily was hired during a time she was using stolen photos AND I don’t recall if we covered it…. but was her “busted” business licensed with the state?

      • U Really That Dumb?

        She went to the city and has a ‘listing’ to operate in the city limits, but there is no record of her with the State or the IRS.

  • U Really That Dumb?

    It’s so sad that this page is now number one when searching her and five when searching the business. I wish there would have been a way to prevent all of this from happening. Not just to begin with, but this latest time as well.

    • Lindsay11

      How could Emily Hummel of Southern Days Photography have prevented this? By not stealing in the first place! Man, if only she did that…

      • U Really That Dumb?

        Yes, that, AND, Emily Hummel of Southern Days Photography should have not come back here the other day and opened up the can of worms again.
        It didn’t help that her husband, Parker Eli Hummel, started attacking the people that called her out on her lies and attacks. His threats are adding to not only his ranking on Google, but hers and the newly rebranded company.

        • Helena

          Would definitely help if her husband Parker Eli Hummel would stop threatening people on behalf of his wife Emily Hummel of Southern Days Photography. Keep it classy guys!

          • Lindsay11

            OMG HE’S WRITING DOWN YOUR NAME!

            So I was reading a terrible story about this 15 year old who was being harassed online and the police couldn’t do anything about it even though there was sufficient proof that these 30 year old men were harassing, bullying, threatening and spreading false information about her. (This mostly happened 5ish years ago I guess? But it’s still happening to her right now and it’s a sad story.)

            So what the hell do our photo stealers, people including Emily A Hummel and Parker Eli Hummel, think the police will do for them? I mean, we have more than sufficient proof that Emily Hummel of Southern Days Photography is a liar and a photo thief who likes to endanger lives. The police certainly won’t be coming after Helena or Joseph or any one else posting there.

            Or is he pulling an Alex Burkhalter and threatening to beat us up?

            Also, is it possible Emily or Parker are banned from posting here? I’m just super curious as to why we’ve never heard from them.

          • Helena

            He doesn’t threaten, he does! He already said he’s going to visit the towns of the people commenting. Hope he’s got a stack of cash and his passport at the ready, it sounds like a fun trip! 😛

          • You can’t fix stupid

            Well good luck to him for coming over here and visiting me. Hope his passport is up to date.

          • Helena

            “Please state the purpose of your visit?”
            “I’m taking NAMES.”

          • You can’t fix stupid

            haha and what if I gave him my Chinese name LOL

          • Justin Case

            nothing to worry about. Judging from his past posts, he won’t be able to spell them right anyway.

          • Ok now I feel lefted out … Why isn’t my name mentioned?

          • Lindsay11

            I mentioned you!

          • U Really That Dumb?

            I’m sure the American Internet Police will be knocking on your door any time now. 😉

            100:1 he doesn’t have a passport & 100000:1 he doesn’t understand he can’t bring his arsenal of guns to the EU.

            There is a greater chance of me knocking on her door than him ever getting there.

            Haha. I’ll put the kettle on for your arrival! 🙂

          • Lol I live in a US territory but you can’t travel with guns here… Well you can but the police department holds it till you get a local permit and to do that you usually need to be a home or business owner.

          • Helena

            Oh no! Not the American internet police! *quickly clears search history*

          • U Really That Dumb?

            Say what?

          • BullShite

            So could we take from this that friends/family/clients might be raising questions after actually *gasp* reading some links?

            I honestly don’t even understand what he is trying to say here. And I don’t want to breath him or taste him, thank you very much!

            Is Parker Eli Hummel, husband of Emily Hummel of Southern Days Photograph gonna write our names on a backboard? Does this mean we have to stay in after class?

          “Fauxtog Effect: (pho-tog Eh-fekt) When a previously busted fauxtographer inadvertently boosts the negative aspect of their already tarnished SEO for their name and business, by posting in response to being mentioned, either in an update,(such as the fauxtog has rebranded) in passing,(gee, this fauxtog is no better than this other one we busted) or on a different website after the initial “bust” has been made.

          Typically the Fauxtog cannot help but to comment on any new, updated, or rehashing of the past, to defend their bad behavior, opening the door for those that had previously found, catalogued, and reported on the theft, to pay attention to that fauxtog and proceed to repost carefully saved screen caps and dialogue, as well as reposting of links that prove the fauxtog’s crimes, thus negatively boosting that person’s SEO. This effectively leaves the fauxtog’s SEO in WORSE shape than it was even after being busted.

          This effect is similar to that of the “Striesand Effect” in that the fauxtog’s intent is not to be the center of attention AGAIN, or boost their negative SEO, but even so, cannot help but defend their negative behaviors, proving once again, the theory that all fauxtogs are missing a connection in their morality and their behavior that says “I’ve done wrong, maybe I should just APOLOGIZE SINCERELY.”

          So does any one think Webster’s will accept this?

        It’s hilarious how her friends are all coming to her defense yet know nothing of what she’s done or what’s legal.
        I feel so bad for the people that were conned by her!
        Her and her husband are both a piece of work I tell you!

        So were you saying there wasn’t enough sarcasm dripping from my post above? LOL

        • BullShite

          Sarcasm? WHERE!! 😉

          Sometimes I feel like logic is just going away in this world. If I saw my friend suddenly being “attacked” or rather confronted about a claim someone made online about illegal or questionable behavior, I would AT LEAST read the provided links, plus the website, before making myself look the fool defending her. How these people could not NOTICE that a bunch of photos she claimed as hers suddenly disappeared, and then…. oh look a new name!? Though arguably she only had a few people defending her. Not as many as I would think with the number of “friends” and “happy clients” she has. So I don’t know, maybe I shouldn’t give up hope?

          It’s so weird that people assume that those they know and love and are related to are intrinsically incapable of doing the wrong things, yet they would have no problem lambasting others in the same way if it were a stranger.

          If this was my friend/sister/spouse she’d have some serious explaining to do. Or maybe I’m just old fashioned and believe really strongly in accountability in life. Not hiding behind God and ignorance, or denial.

            Seriously. It’s so insulting they are telling people they need God and church (oh and to get a life, duh, they all always say that). Wouldn’t the person lying and stealing and cursing need to go to church?

            Emily Hummel of Southern Days Photography and all her church going friends that are attacking and threatening need to take a step back and look at what they are doing.
