More proof that a pretty website doesn’t mean the photographer is legit. This photographer was called out by the original photographers back in December but they have had no luck getting their images removed from Collecting Light’s website or Flickr.
Each gallery appears to be lifted from the same photographer so I’m not sourcing every single image, just a few from each gallery.
Each blog is also lifted from a single photographer and is accompanied by a fake story about the session. You know how much those creep me out!

Added in some plagiarism that’s going on along with more stolen images from her Journey Through Meadows blog. There are fake stories and stolen images abound on the blog and it is quite unsettling. More digging has shown that not only has Lucie been plagiarizing but she’s also faked her own death.
Flickr has removed all of the stolen images and her photography website has been changed to force a login to see the site.
Lucie commented in the comments if you care to read her side of the story (spoiler – those are her images she took herself!).
Thank you for your ad clicks and donations – this enabled me to pay for more searches with Copyscape to help find the original writers of many of these blogs. <3
