Last night I received a tip that one of the photographers listed here in 2015, A&K Photography, was back up to his old tricks and using stolen images in his portfolio.  Not only that but he’s been pulling no shows at weddings as well.  I wonder if he’ll blame the former partner again?

Here is a link to the news story that aired last night about two weddings he no-showed to.  http://www.kcci.com/article/newlyweds-say-photographer-scammed-them-on-their-wedding-day/8677634

Also of note is that right when all of the shit started to hit the fan there was a sudden influx of 5 star reviews on his listing on The Knot.  Now you have to dig to find the negative reviews.

Of course most of the client reviews on his website are plagiarized.  Color me shocked.

Jasmine Star, Part Two

Three years ago it was discovered that Jasmine Star was plagiarizing quotes on Instagram and Facebook and shortly thereafter it was discovered that some of her blog posts were also plagiarized.  Unfortunately, I’ve received multiple submissions that she is doing it again.

Jasmine Star’s Blog “Inspiration is for Amateurs” (which is also shared on Instagram and Facebook) is awfully similar to a quote from Chuck Close.  Some of it is verbatim, some of it is heavily inspired by the source quote much like her blog posts were the last time.  Below I’ve highlighted the words that were identical.

Update: there’s also at least one more quip that wasn’t Jasmine’s original words and you’ll find that added below.
