To be honest I don’t know what the hell is happening with this company.

The website just seems off. Some plagiarism, some stolen images. I think there’s more stolen on the website but I couldn’t find sources for it all.

The one Instagram account (Ivan) seems like a bot account with bought followers?

The maternity Instagram is full of AI images along the stolen ones.

The wedding Instagram has a “Backdropville” icon.

Very weird but they are advertising with the stolen images so are trying to get clients.

Apparently Xavier thinks he could pass as Jerry Ghionis.  *raises eyebrow*

His instagram is full of suspicious images but the majority aren’t coming up on google, likely from Instagram directly which isn’t often indexed on Google.  Peruse his feed to make sure your image isn’t one he stole.

This photographer was caught when they replied to a want ad for a second shooter for a wedding with their website which is full of very recognizable work from other photographers.  Note that these images are all for sale on the website.  They also are on the slideshow at the opening of the website.

The other galleries appears to be their own work.

This guy claims he had his gear stolen at a wedding and has a crowd funding site set up… whoa.

Los Angeles Boudoir Photography

Thief:  Los Angeles Boudoir Photography
Link:  http://www.losangelesboudoirphotography.com/ 

This thief was sent to me today by a photographer that I greatly admire because he had stolen her work.  Apparently he is using the images on his site, as well as in a marketing email to brides in the LA Area. 

The image on his Boudoir Photography page.

It is in fact stolen from iSnap Studio.

Another image from his website. 

This image is apparently a stock image as it is virtually everywhere and I am unable to source the original photographer.

The slideshow on his main page is rife with stolen images.  

This image was taken by Fidelio Photography.

Another image from the slideshow.

The stolen images on Cheatwood Photo’s blog.  

Another image in the slideshow.

The original photo is a cropped version of Raw Photo Design’s original image

Many more of the photos in the slideshow are stolen I suspect (or all of them) but they either have way too many sources to even begin to guess or I can’t find the original source.
