The newest addition to the list is Martina McMayo who seems to have found “inspiration” from just about everyone and for everything from her logo to bio to image work.  

The main website, notice the logo and image?

image

The logo is heavily inspired by Jerry Ghionis.

image

The first image is by Viktoria Novak.

image

The next sourceable image.

image

This is originally Jim Garner’s original work.

image

Next page is the bio.

image

This is heavily plagiarized from Jerry Ghionis.

image

The next image on their bio page:

image

Also is originally by Jerry Ghionis.  The awards that Dream Wedding Productions/Martina McMayo claims to have won were also actually won by Jerry in those years.

My favorite though may be her photoshopping her head/face onto some bridal gown images.  Here’s an example.

One of the things I see time and time again is that new photographers tend to think nothing of putting up photos they aspire to take “someday” on their new website or Facebook Page.  Sometimes they actually clarify they aren’t theirs but usually they don’t.  

It’s always extra amusing when they lie like a rug in their about page.  This photographer, who picked up a camera for the FIRST time in 2011, managed to photograph for Victoria’s Secret, Seventeen Magazine and Jimmy Choo that same year – while also winning dozens of awards if you believe his About page.  

PS: Don’t forget we have a Facebook Fan Page which sometimes has some bonus content! 

image

Let’s start with the profile picture. 

image

Original image was taken by Sean Molin, seen here on Digital Photography School. 

image

The cover image is also not his, at least he tells you this but ONLY if you click on the picture.  Otherwise you are lead to believe when opening his page that these images are both his. Still shady.

image

This image was originally taken by Eduard Stelmakh

image

There are quite a few images in his gallery that seem out of place but I can’t find sources for them but here’s what I did find.  

image

The original source is Edwin Tan Photography

image

image

The original source is Rolland Andras Flinta.  Seen here on Digi Pixture.

image

image

The original source is Daria Ganihiha.

The original source is Lena Dunaeva.

Jack Alexander Photography again!  I think it’s safe to say we found his muse.

Boy, this one is a doozie.

This ad captured someone’s attention and from there, the rest is history.   PS – I bet she doesn’t have a permit to use New Orleans City Park for photo sessions. 

image

Baby Uncle Sam is originally by Amber Sue Photography.

image

The little boy with the flag is originally by Carolyn Ann Ryan.

image

The little girl in the headband is by Christina Houser.

image

What has been the most eye opening part of all of this is the way that the owner of Images by Eire Photography has reacted to the outing.

Also, watermarked or not, it’s still illegal to steal someone else’s intellectual property.  As a photographer, the moment the shutter is clicked, you own the copyright of the image. 

image

Here’s her admitting that while she did use the image, it’s not stealing, that’s totally a different thing.

image

image

image

image

image

So after her comments (there are more but I’m stopping before she starts dropping the f bombs, you can read the whole crazy thread here).  Some members decided to peruse her gallery and shock! There are more stolen images on her page.

Most of the photographers have NOT been contacted by Rachel as of 6/9/13.

image

Can’t find the original source but appears to be a before/after from acne medicine NOT Photoshop.

image

Another before and after.

image

These images are by my friend Jenna Cole whom runs the That Wife blog and are of her son.  What’s creepy is that Jenna did not do the editing on the after… eep.

image

Another before and after.

image

Again, it appears to be from acne ads.

image

This image was posted but Eire removed as soon as this one was posted.  Good thing for screen captures!

image

This image is originally from Twin Bridges Photography.

image

So after the research my friends did for me, I decided to do some digging on my own.

Let’s start here.

image

I can’t find the original source but it is NOT Eire.

image

Another ad, another stolen image.  Also seen here on her Pinterest.

image

Can’t find the original source.

Sorry for the radio silence, it’s wedding season!

This photographer was sent to me and it appears he only has a Facebook presence but please let me know if you find a URL he is using.  Apparently this guy has been on some reality show (Real Housewives of Vancouver I think?).  It doesn’t mean that you still can’t be a thief though.  The images that I haven’t listed below are stock or I can’t find the original source due to Pinterest stealing, none of the images in this gallery appear to be Doman’s original work.

Stolen image with a bonus “story” about how the image came to be.  Notice the watermarking?  That’s funny.

image

I can’t find the original source but I had to include the image because the story surrounding it was amusing and kind of creepy he’s wanting little girls to work for him as “models” for catalogs.
