I’m back from PPA and slept off the conventionitis. It was a great show and I highly recommend it to all photographers… when the hotel doesn’t have a norovirus outbreak.  Seriously though, it’s a great group of people that are serious about the industry and care a lot about it.  Make it a must-do if you’re in the US!

This photographer mostly uses stock images which I won’t be listing since I’m unsure which came with the WIX website.  However there are quite a few that are not stock and those are below.

There are numerous craigslist ads, I won’t be sourcing them all as the images that aren’t stock are sourced w/ the website and Facebook posts.  I cut it off at 9 but there’s a lot more listings out there.

Update 2/9/2015

I’ve added the Thumbtack listing.

Update 3/11/2015

Added new Craigslist ad and sources.

FB:  https://www.facebook.com/pages/Joshua-Bombard-Photography/101767316549419

This one was sent into me via the message feature.  From how his site and Faceboook read, I am guessing that he is a hobbyist that is trying to break into different fields of photography by using other photographers works to represent his own and create ads.  I know I’ve said this but I’ll say it again, DO NOT DO THIS.

*****UPDATE 3/26 Below*****

We will start with his webage.

image

The first image in the slideshow is an ad for his wedding photography.

image

This image is from esh photgraphy in Canberra.

image

The second image in the slideshow is an ad for boudoir.

image

The image on the far left belongs to SF Connected Photography.  I cannot find the sources to the other two but I wouldn’t be surprised to find out they are stolen as well.

image

The third image in the slideshow is an ad for senior photography.

image

The third image appears to be from a stock site, it is seen on many foreign language websites, this one is just one of the many where this image appears.

image

The fourth image just made me laugh.  I somehow highly doubt that Blake Lively went to some random photographer for her senior portraits in Illinois.  This image is everywhere and impossible to find the original source to (well it could be possible but I don’t have that kind of time).  This site is one of the many, many sites this image appears on.

image

image

The second page of galleries (I couldn’t find sources for the first page).

image

The entrance image to the boudoir section is an image from honeybourne intimates that seems to be everywhere without credit.

Now onto Facebook.

image

I’m quickly finding that the images that he has stolen are awfully pixelated.

image

This image is from Model Mayhem but I cannot find the original source.

image

This is the next image from Facebook.

image

This image is from Hollye Schumacher and appears to be from the Junebug Weddings site.  This is a prime example of why photographers are hesitant anymore to allow bridal blogs to use their works without any kind of watermark, thieves like this one can just lift it easily.  He’s also using this image on his Model Mayhem portfolio.

image

We get to skip down a few to this next image in his gallery that seems just a bit too good to be true.

image

This image is from Tim Hamilton.

image

The next sunset image on Joshua’s Facebook.

image

This image is from Joep R.

I’m sure that more on his Facebook and website is stolen but I’m not finding sources, partially I am sure due to his watermarking he has added onto the images.

UPDATE 3/26:

This guy is still heavily using images that are either stock (legally purchased or not, it is still against TOS to display as your own work) or taken from another photographer.

The new gallery page.

New wedding gallery.

The original image is from The Way We Click Photography, here seen on ISPWP (winning #13).

The next image in the slideshow.

It is a stock image of a wedding dress, found online in numerous places.

Another image in the slideshow.

Another stock-type image with numerous sources on the internet.

Surprise, another stock image that apparently other photographers are also using…

Notice his watermark in the corner? Nice touch!

He had to crop the image to get the original watermark out from Dani Dunca Photography.

The next in the gallery… in which we are yet to find a SINGLE image that is his.

Another stock image!

Another…

Stock!

Another…

Stock again!

Another…

Stock again!

Boudoir Gallery

Ian Chae Photography aka Playground57

Link:  http://ianchae.com/

This photographer out of Vancouver whom claims to have been in the business for 10 years however doesn’t seem to have a lot to show for it since the work on his website is not his own.  I’m sure since the website seems new-ish that we’ll be getting the “web designer did it” excuse but until then… 

The wedding gallery is made up of stunning images, as one can see here.  Too bad none of these are his.  The vast majority are stolen from Otto Schulze Photographers.   I would screencap individually but I’m being lazy tonight. 

Update 4/10/13:  

He is still around, thus far keeping his nose clean but here are his current websites.

http://playground57.com/

http://www.meelapicks.com/ appears to be his wife but she features his work from time to time.

On3 Images by Tom Swoope

Link:  http://tomswoope.com/ or http://www.on3images.com/
Google Page:  https://plus.google.com/112286953875739171750/about?gl=us&hl=en
You Tube:  http://www.youtube.com/user/tomswoopetv 
Smugmug: http://tomswoope.smugmug.com/

On3 Images by Tom Swoope has been caught red handed not only stealing photographs but also stealing text as well.  By the time I was contacted, he was quickly removing the stolen goods but the internet learns quickly and people have been screen capturing and sending it along to me.  When confronted, Tom alleged that the Web Designer did it (of course) but it doesn’t explain how the watermarks got removed.  There is also the problem with the fact that he claims he does web design so one would think even if he didn’t do his own that he would have been combing over things with a fine toothed comb if he outsourced it.  Beyond that, the images that were stolen had the SAME NAME as the source where they were stolen from, that’s kind of too much of a coincidence.

Before going further, I suggest you watch this You Tube video is from one of the people he stole from outlining all of the things that were stolen and the sources.  UPDATE: You Tube removed the video. It’s now reuploaded to Facebook.

Now onto the pictures…

The original images and blog post on Natalie Franke Photography.

The stolen image on the On3 Images website’s wedding gallery.

Seen again on his website under the Investment page as well.

Another image on the same blog post from Natalie Franke Photography.

Seen here again on On3 Images website.

The original images on Jake Holt Photography’s website.

Seen on On3 Images website.

The Google Place page for On3 Images.  As you will see, Natalie Franke’s image is the main image for this page, which we’ve shown as stolen above.

Another stolen image on the google page from Raw Photo Design.

Yet another image stolen on the Google Place page from Raw Photo Design.

Another set of images stolen from Jay Premack Photography as seen on the Google Place page.

A sample of what was on his Facebook Page before it was taken down by Facebook, as you can see, there were more stolen images with his watermark on them.

Update 9/25:

Now that my wedding edit from Saturday is exporting I decided to check out and see how much of the word content on On3 Images site was stolen.  It didn’t take long to find the answer to that.

The bio on La Dolce Vita’s website.

The intro to the wedding section on On3 Images site – looks familiar, yes?

I also found his Smugmug Gallery, which also has stolen goods.

This image on Chloe Moore Photography is on a blog post of a bunch of fun photo booth pictures.

Here is the image on On3’s Smugmug gallery as a sample from the photo booth.   Before I hear the requisite “oh that’s a sample Smugmug left” I want to nip that in the bud.  Here you will see this image used for the local Fox Best of Competition.  Here they are using the image on their Yelp Page.  He’s also using it on his LinkedIn Profile.
