Photo Theft from BP


I wanted to alert my fellow BPer's about a theft of photos from BP. There is a gal who has a flickr site and numerous photos I recognized from BP. I have alerted a number of the owners, but I am sure there are many I didn't recognize, so you may want to check it out to see if you work is there.

  Thanks Kimberly,I have some mixed feelings about not finding any of my photos on her site. Apparently, she didn't like mine. It is a little scary that someone can so easily copy our photos. It makes you wonder if there are others out there.

  Thanks for posting this, I loed and did not see any of my images but it is a reason to stay at BP and not go to a site which hosts full res. files.

  Thanks for the heads up. I did see at least one of Susan Evans shots on there on the last page. Did you notify her? It's the red truck door shot.

  I saw your origianl email Kimberly early this morning and notified quite a few people. Good heads up on your part. I know that Jim Miotke was notified as well.

  Yeah, I think that word has spread and now she knows, flickr knows, bp knows and on and on. It's disturbing how easy it is for people to steal photos on the internet. But at least it's nice to know that there are fellow photographer's out there who stand up for each other.
