Marissa’s Reflection Photography

Facebook:  https://www.facebook.com/pages/Marissas-Reflection-Photography/372236829465543

This was tipped off to me on the Facebook Page.   You can also use the “Know a Thief” above if you find someone you suspect is not using images that they originally photographed.

    Big fan of the site! Thanks for all you do for the community! I’m still shocked people do this, but not. Sheesh.

    I think she earns a double nomination: Photo Stealers and “You are NOT a Photographer!”
    The taste level is…lacking. To be kind. And I’m not even mentioning the comic sans on her captions of the images that are obviously hers.

    Love the page, keep it up, I actually like the layout of your posts. About this lady: Not saying it’s right, because it’s not, but she clearly isnt saying “I did this” by leaving the photographers’ watermarks. She seems to be under the false impression that for a photography business its acceptable to use other people’s images to promote her product. Hopefully now she knows and will make better decisions in the future.

    This was posted before she took down her Facebook page:

    “YES! this has upset me greatly!! I NEVER ONCE TRY TO SAY THAT WAS MY PICTURE!! I used google to find ideas for christmas!! it was used as an example!! people are so rude!! and obviously have nothing better to do! until they contact the person, why bash them so hard!! the page she has me on if just crazy and needs to be removed!”

    • athenamor

      I know it has to be upsetting to end up on here. I understand looking up ideas to try, but I think you should try these ideas and post your own results. Most of the time a light bulb will come on and you’ll take someones original idea in another direction. Finding a model is not too hard if your friends/family don’t fit the requirements for the shoot.

      • Michael Goolsby

        Absolutely. Sadly, I think that Marissa is not the kind of person who appreciates learning things through her own effort. This belief comes from how she refuses to take any accountability. She may or may not have INTENDED to deceive her page visitors, but when caught and educated, she basically blew a gadget rather than admit her mistake/error/dishonesty/whatever. My guess is that, without the shortcuts, her “career” as a photographer is probably over.

          Well said.

  • U Really That Dumb?

    Her page is back AND it’s featured on SYTYAP

      well, I guess someone finally figured out how ‘sharing’ works on facebook. (“This content is currently unavailable”)

  • You can’t fix stupid

    She says that she is not a professional but she charges.

    • Helena

      Which basically means: “I’m not paying any tax.”

      • Me, Myself and I

        It also probably means:

        – I don’t have professional liability insurance so if my clients get hurt due to my negligence I’ll lose everything I own,
        – I don’t have backup gear in case something happens,
        – I don’t have a resilient backup strategy for your important files,
        – I don’t have access to a professional print lab and print at the same places you do at a markup,
        – I don’t have a properly vetted contract to protect both my client and myself,
        – I don’t understand copyright law or contract law and may have written a completely un-enforceable contract that leaves either myself or my clients at risk
        – …

        • Factitious_Detector

          Yeah it will be REAL funny when one of her clients gets hurt on a shoot and decides to sue. I am sure the judge will just say, “oh but this photographer is not a professional even though she charges, case dismissed!” These people are such a DANGER. They just do NOT THINK.

        • Justin Case

          or copy wright for that matter.
