Okay, so during my last shoot with Sugar from Survivor - I noticed this sweet older lady in a moo moo taking photos of Sugar on the sly (over my shoulder) with this little camera. She would say to me, "Wow, she is beautiful! She works the camera so well. Do you mind if I snap a couple?" Well, I just thought she was this sweet old lady admiring her and I thought nothing of it. I told her no problem!

Well, this friend of mine contacts me and asks me if I had an assistant for that shoot. I told her no. She tells me that this person on HER facebook posted these Sugar photos as her own, as if she took them legitimately. It turns out this lady in a moo moo runs a photography business (she sucks). And put her watermark on them and put them on her business site as if she landed a shoot with Sugar from Survivor. And she put up terrible shots of Sugar (bad angles, piss poor editing, etc)

Well, I couldn't believe it. I contacted this fauxtographer and asked politely for her to take them down. And she basically said, "Hey, she's on public property. I'm not doing anything illegal." In which I replied, "Forget legalities, don't you feel like a fraud, shooting over another photographer's shoulder, and using them as if you set up the shoot?" She didn't. Loser.

Anyways, she ended up taking them down. (Sugar didn't care - she's too nice)

But yesterday, my friend alerted me to her new advertising post, which includes one of Sugar's shots. Ugh. I don't know, it just irritates me that people would do that. Am I right to feel robbed? I don't want to say anything to her again. She's an idiot.

Thanks for letting me vent.

Um what a friggin jerk! That's so messed up! Maybe tweet/facebook the link out to your "friends/followers" whatever they are called (so not social media terminology savvy) and if they see it have them comment about it being fake.....maybe she'll be embarrassed enough to take it down? I would think? UGH!!! Sorry Phil, that's so ridiculous! You have every right to be pissed!

Two people already commented on it. I'm not asking you to do that, really. But I won't stop you. Smile

I did that the first time. It's been almost a year since that shoot. That's why she took them down. She blocked me and my family/friends. This time, I brought it here and Twitter. Hopefully she'll get the message. Thanks, MW.

What a POS!!! Yes I would do exactly what you did Phil. Wonder if she actually took any of those pictures that are on her flyer. Makes me mad when someone uses another photographers work...or those that "think" they are photographers.

Of course you're right to feel robbed ... that was your shoot ... you weren't photobombed, you were photographer bombed.
I think you handled it appropriately.

Id be pissed. Too bad sugar isn't upset. She would definitely be able to get this woman to stop using her image.
