No rest for the wicked!  I have quite a few on deck but a busy weekend ahead now that spring is here so I’ll try to get to what I can as I can.

I’ve now got a Twitter account to go along with the Facebook Page.  Make sure to follow both for more up-to-date goings on.  Sometimes old pages get updated and you won’t know unless you are following Photo Stealers.

There’s so much here that I’m skipping over anything that is stock or appears to be stock.  Note all of the © watermarks.  Some images have been removed before this post went live but many are still there.

There are a few images not listed that I feel fairly certain may be someone’s original work but cannot find the source via Google.  If you spy one that you recognize, let me know via the comments or message.

Thanks again for the donations and ad clicks, you’re helping keep this site going!  I’ve had a few issues come up lately that I needed to hire a lawyer for and the funds have helped keep this site legal and running!  THANK YOU!

Photographers Sud in France

Happy Easter!  No rest for the wicked or something like that?  Guess it’s a good thing my family is all deceased so today is about eating pizza and not ham and family stuff 😉 So instead of eggs and chocolate I bring you a new entry.  

There’s a TON of stock images on this website so I’m focusing on the ones that are taken from other photographers and not from some random HD wallpaper place on the internet.

PS:  Did you know we have a Facebook Page?  Come be a fan!

One question I get a lot is why is wedding images the most featured here.  Partially it is because I’m a wedding photographer so that’s what I’m naturally drawn to but also these images tend to be the most stolen.  Many photographers start out doing portraits but then decide they are going to “break into” weddings because they see that’s where the money is at (never you mind that weddings are more expensive because they are much harder!).  Since they do not have their own portfolio to draw from for advertising, they use others.  This happens in other genres too (boudoir is second runner up!) but weddings seem to be the biggest money draw is so therefore it’s the category that’s most often featured.  I’m going to be doing a FAQ post soon, feel free to comment with your burning questions.

Her website appears to  be clear due to the lack of wedding images but the other sites are not so clean, including her blog which I find amusing that she disabled right clicks on.

Update 04/17/2014 @ 9:00AM

The owner/husband of the owner have commented below claiming the issue was only with the ONE Craigslist ad and the images were all from free wedding image websites.  I already showed images from the blog and Facebook, added images from the second Craigslist ad that included the recessional with the petals.

Note, it doesn’t matter if you are using free stock images (which all of these images are not stock imagery) it is dishonest to use these images to represent your personal body of work as a photographer, often it is also against the TOS of the stock image site.
