Georgia again???  Sigh.

This photographer lifted the bulk of her portfolio from one photographer, even going as far as to get business cards printed with his work.  There’s also one other photographer she also stole heavily from.  All of the images appear to have came from Flickr.

Thanks again for the ad clicks and donations to help keep this page running!  You are the best!

DM Productions aka Robbie Caine Photography in Melbourne, Australia

Website:  http://dmproductions.fotomerchant.com/home

This genius not only stole images and stole from me but went to my actual website to do it.  When there he had to screen capture to steal the images because I’ve yet to find an HTML site I like as much as my flash website. 

Lots of swear words people.  LOTS OF SWEAR WORDS!  Thank GOD I bought some alcohol today.  Oddly this photographer stole from a lot of Ohio photographers because you know, Australia is TOTALLY similar to Ohio.  WTF?

I am publishing this then going back into the other galleries.  Given that most of them (Fashion, Glamour and Portrait) seem to be from commercial artists the sourcing may be a bit more difficult.

Collecting Light AKA Journey Through Meadows in Brighton, England, UK

Website:  http://collectinglight.com/ [URL no longer valid]
Flickr:  https://www.flickr.com/photos/72610808@N04/

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!

Update: 05/10/2014 @5:00PM EST

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

Guess they don’t have the luck of the Irish today.

This photographer has been contacted about their stolen images but chose to ignore the requests to take the images down.  Ironically this photographer duo just went to WPPI “to get better”.

Update 03/18/2014 @ 1:00AM

I didn’t get a chance to source the text earlier when finding the links and posting the image sources but am going back through what remains live and sourcing the text.  There is a lot of plagiarism, including their About Us page on their website (at this time, still is there).  There’s also at least one two reviews that has been plagiarized.

Update 03/18/2014 @ 11:30AM

Found a few more links, more plagiarism on their website and PDF’d some of their blogs.

Update 03/18/2014 @ 12:00PM

Found an ad they published in The Bump with stolen images.

Update 03/18/2014 @6:00PM

Updated with a few more websites they are located on, another stolen image from Google +.

Update 03/31/2014 @ 5:00PM

They’ve rebranded.  Links updated.

Update 06/12/2014

They’ve rebranded for the millionth time.  I updated the links and deleted all of the dead ones.

It’s amazing how many photographers pimp their portfolio on Facebook then get busted because of stolen images.  This is #2 for today that got busted this way.  This photographer has been posting her ad all over the internet and Facebook trying to drum up business.  There’s a TON of images here so grab your drink of choice and start scrolling.

Again, click an ad on your way out to keep Photo Stealers going.  Thanks!

Update 04/25/2014

Angel is back with a new name and more stolen photos.  Some people never learn or respect the art of photography.   The images are at the end of the post.

Update 09/30/2014

Angel is back under a new name of “Life’s Magical Moments Photography” and is still stealing images and putting her own watermark on said images.  Sources below.
