It never fails to amaze me when someone steals from someone whose work is as identifiable as Jerry Ghionis.
I’m not listing the images that I suspect are stock – which is most of the images that are on the site but aren’t listed below.
I also gave up on sourcing images from Facebook around April. There are a TON more on her Facebook page but I’ve put in 6 hours on this post so I’m waving the white flag.
His URLS and the pictures below may include images that are NSFW!!!!
I’m leaving the website out of it since it’s not really a photography website, it appears to be a website to represent models. However, the Facebook is a different story. I’m only including images where he states these are sessions/shoots or alludes that these images were from his studio. Most of the images he’s claimed to photograph himself are of celebrities and models from various ad campaigns and fashion editorials but some are originally photographed by boudoir photographers.
Website appears to be clear but the Facebook is not. They are quickly deleting as I’m writing this post.

It’s Fun to Flirt Pinterest Gallery:
What started as a boudoir photographer that was stealing images for ads and their gallery (which is oddly hosted on Pinterest) turned into a photographer duo that is an entire new chapter to Photo Stealers.
When caught, the response is not Fuck You. That just gets back to me which means that I need to dig more.
I also am highly amused by the Phoopla tagline, “Fighting the good fight against snobby, overcharging, under-delivering ‘professional’ photographers and designers” and define phoopla as “that feeling when you finally find a photographer that you can truly trust.” I can’t make this shit up.
Update @ 8:15PM EST: I’ve added a bit more to the post as the Phoopla owners are claiming not to be affiliated with It’s Fun to Flirt which is just silly since it was ON PHOOPLA’S FACEBOOK PAGE.
