Boy, this one is a doozie.

This ad captured someone’s attention and from there, the rest is history.   PS – I bet she doesn’t have a permit to use New Orleans City Park for photo sessions. 

image

Baby Uncle Sam is originally by Amber Sue Photography.

image

The little boy with the flag is originally by Carolyn Ann Ryan.

image

The little girl in the headband is by Christina Houser.

image

What has been the most eye opening part of all of this is the way that the owner of Images by Eire Photography has reacted to the outing.

Also, watermarked or not, it’s still illegal to steal someone else’s intellectual property.  As a photographer, the moment the shutter is clicked, you own the copyright of the image. 

image

Here’s her admitting that while she did use the image, it’s not stealing, that’s totally a different thing.

So after her comments (there are more but I’m stopping before she starts dropping the f bombs, you can read the whole crazy thread here).  Some members decided to peruse her gallery and shock! There are more stolen images on her page.

Most of the photographers have NOT been contacted by Rachel as of 6/9/13.

image

Can’t find the original source but appears to be a before/after from acne medicine NOT Photoshop.

image

Another before and after.

image

These images are by my friend Jenna Cole whom runs the That Wife blog and are of her son.  What’s creepy is that Jenna did not do the editing on the after… eep.

image

Another before and after.

image

Again, it appears to be from acne ads.

image

This image was posted but Eire removed as soon as this one was posted.  Good thing for screen captures!

image

This image is originally from Twin Bridges Photography.

image

So after the research my friends did for me, I decided to do some digging on my own.

Let’s start here.

image

I can’t find the original source but it is NOT Eire.

image

Another ad, another stolen image.  Also seen here on her Pinterest.

Can’t find the original source.

I’ve got a new look, a new logo and now need a header… but it’s looking a bit better here I think!  Let me know what you think!  Don’t forget to be a Fan on Facebook to keep up with what’s going on here at Photo Stealers. 

Lidia is another photographer that uses others work.  When confronted, she swore the work is hers and she has copies of it on her memory cards. Mmmm hmmm….

If you’ve noticed, all of the images of the senior on Lidia Leann’s page are actually from Kacy Kizer.  

image

Lidia’s Facebook page where we see Kacy’s images again. 

image

Lidia’s Senior gallery, where the same images are repeated that are Kacy’s. 

image

Well, I guess there is some truth here since she edited this image to have a double exposure. 

image

I love this so, so much.  Because you totally can’t put images ON a memory card right?  The ONLY way is to take the pictures!  Oh and watermarking can ONLY be done once… ever.  It also totally can’t be taken off or put on with photoshop magic 😉 

image

This one may have made me laugh the most… yes.  She totally took all of these, including the one from TWILIGHT!  She’s THAT popular that she was on set while the moving was being filmed!  It’s totally on her memory card!

All of these images are stolen from various sources (l to r, top to bottom)

1.  Twilight/ Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson.
2.  One of the many, many places online this image is.
3.  Another photo with a zillion sources. 
4.  Again, many sources. 
5.  One of many. 
6.  Again, too many to count. 
7.  You got it, there’s tons of this out there. 
8.  This is from a book cover. 
9.  One of many zillion.  

In the past I haven’t been listing the images that I can’t find sources for but I’m sick of these thieves claiming they took all the stolen work down, when they only took the ones I outed down and keep the rest of the Pinterest/Tumblr’d sourced images up since I didn’t post those.  

UPDATE:

The websites are down and the Facebook page has been cleared of all stolen works outed here.
