Photographers Sud in France

Website: http://www.photographes-sud.com/

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!

    Lets see what happens when “Photographers South is a collective (CHRA) photographers created in 2005 by professional wedding photographers” find out they stole so many images … smh
    Thanks to chome french to English translation

  • Joseph Philbert

    Found a fanpage but it seems it was never hashed out

    Stealing Brenizer’s and Chrisman’s images, so not a good idea. Unauthorized use of the Olympic logo on your website, probably not a good idea either. Guess they were thinking ‘go big or go home’ eh?

    • Justin Case

      sounds about right. And free advertising for Nikon. Wonder how they convinced all 65 of their photographers to all use only one brand.

      • Joseph Philbert

        Its all lies … if it had 65 photographers they it would be more mention of it somewhere else besides their site …with so many many awards.

  • Kat Forsyth

    Haha…who steals photos of Chelsea Clinton’s wedding and pretends they shot it? How stupid do you have to be??
    On the upside, thanks for introducing me to Pablo Lopez Ortiz! Gorgeous stuff.

  • Justin Case

    woah. at the bottom of their ‘Edito’ pages:

    “Un grand nombre de photos et images sont disponibles en libre accès sur google images” (Many photos and images are available free on google image)

    I think this might be their idea of giving credit, but no matter how you read it, it looks like it might be the root of the problem here.

    • Kat Forsyth

      Blaaaargh! When are people going to understand that “google images” is not a free repository of photos you can use commercially???

  • Joseph Philbert

    The language barrier is challenging here is another site they use
    http://photographe-ardeche.com/

    gee, nothing like a challenge PS lol! domain registration to Patrice Gellato (also listed as Coordinator on the ardeche site). Found another site where there is a notice that all photos are the property of Patrice, however includes at least one stock photo not by Patrice

    • Joel A

      Investigator confuzzled!

      • captain-confuzzled

        😉

  • captain-confuzzled

    and then we have of course the requisite statement included on their site that no one should steal anything from them…smh

    • Joseph Philbert

      Never fails.

  • Darren

    Oooh, I French one! I speak French (I used to live there), so this should be fun. I hope they write in…

  • BullShite

    So how do you say “Photo Stealer” in french?? 😉

    • Joseph Philbert

      Its spelled the same … but with a french accent 😛

    • Melinda Potter

      Photo voleur
      According to google translate

      • Joseph Philbert

        Google does not know it all … “wait let me take that back”

  • Darren

    Voleur de photos

    • Melinda Potter

      Or sac d’écume

  • funny name as “sud” in French is pronounced “sued” in English! How do people get away with this and actually get business? for real?

  • Joseph Philbert

    Just an update…they seem to have removed all the stolen images.
