Lots of stock images, lots of not stock images.  Will only be posting the ones that aren’t stock in the gallery – you can figure out which few images are theirs (spoiler alert, it’s not hard to figure out).  I don’t recommend stealing from ANYONE but definitely don’t steal from photographers that are local to you.

They’ve removed most of the stolen work from their website but the Facebook still has a lot of stolen images.  I’m also adding in some of the stock images from their various places on the internet including on their business profile pages since the owner is claiming that it’s his “partner” that stole the images, all he did was use the images he was given.  Too bad some stolen images are on the owner’s Facebook profile.

Jeremy Cowart in Los Angeles, CA

Website:  http://jeremycowart.com/


A month or so ago at Photoshop World in Atlanta, Jeremy Cowart was a presenter.  In this class he described his technique of creating time-lapse videos of himself creating composite art pieces which he is selling for his charity.  Part of that process involved Jeremy showing himself going to Google Image Search and using images taken by others as layers in the final composite piece.  When questioned during his class about the legalities regarding copyright infringement by doing this, Jeremy allegedly said that it didn’t apply because he isn’t making money off of the pieces.   This information is wrong.  If you want to read the laws about derivative works, read here.  Essentially if you are using images that are copyright to the original owner to create a new piece of work you must have permission from the original copyright holder.   While I admire what Jeremy does for his charities, I don’t admire his method of creating the work and then teaching other creatives at a conference this method of obtaining images for composite work.
