Our Work Has Been Stolen

Follow the advice given on this post/site. David did a great job, finding this image thief, who sells posters from images without permission of the photographers. Investigate as he described by using the private or incognito mode of you internet browser to find out, if you’re a victim, too. Good luck!
I assumed, I’d be save, because I’m posting only small images. But, I was wrong 😦

Until now, I’m not sure, how many of my images are stolen, because of the bad response of their so-called web shop. When investigating, try it again and again. At least, I got different results for each search: the results differed from 0 to more than 700.

David also set up a post, on how to reclaim you images as yours and report a copyright violation. Hope, it helps.

iPhone Photographer | David Pasillas

I think I always knew this was going to happen. In fact, I caught someone a few years ago that had stolen one of my iphone photos and was distributing it to people that wanted to create composites. I wasn’t too upset about that because it wasn’t a great photo, and it probably wouldn’t have been used for anything since it was heavily edited. At any rate, a simple cease and desist worked.

This recent discovery is much more upsetting. It’s a bit of a rabbit hole that myself and other artists have been delving into the last few days. At first it looked like another poster website selling photographs that didn’t belong to them. A bit of research has lead us to believe its much worse.

I actually found some of your work on their site too. I’ll mention the names in a minute, but I honestly don’t want…

Arctic Terns

600_3925-ec_wIn my last posts, I gave you a slight overview on the birds living around Iceland. Today I picked some photos taken at Jökulsárlón. Between the lake and the parking ground, there is a huge breeding place of the arctic terns. Thousands of birds are constantly commoting from their nest to the lake from fishing and back. Skuas are also in the crowd. Always ready to force a tern to give up her prey.

Take care!
