Linda Golley’s Photography

This photographer caught my eye immediately when I saw the submission because one of the stolen photos is VERY similar to one I’ve taken.  Same place but it ended up being a different photographer.

It seems to be a new thing (well, newly getting CAUGHT anyway) that people are stealing images to enter them into contests.  This photographer does the same and has won or placed in quite a few contests with images that aren’t her original works.  Sigh.  At least it seems to be that these contests are just silly Facebook ones.

I like that she’s also selling these works that are not her own on Fine Art America.  I wonder how many she’s sold?

The about is my favorite.

There are tons and tons more but I think you get the gist.  I’m going to focus on the ones she is winning contests with and selling.

There’s more but I’m hungry and it’s lunch time so… I think you got the point.  There’s a lot more I didn’t post but trust when I say that 90% of Linda Golley’s work is not her own.

I’m back and she’s denying so I’m going to post more.

…and her page went down.  Darn.

    Thankfully, the two main sites are down and only the 500px gallery remains. Once again, thought, when the thief takes down all the stolen stuff, all that’s left is crap. This young girl went from being an award-winning landscape photographer to an everyday amateur photographic “duck hunter”.
