Default Jo Binski - illegal image use

Jo Binski has been illegally using my images in his portfolio - I hope anyone considering using Jo Binski for a wedding or any kind of photography work finds this thread and sees he is not to be trusted.

His website (probably all stolen material): Jo Binski

What the hell is going on in the world lately? That one bridal portrait is the same one the other guy stole. Not cool.

I'm sure there were always cheats and scumbags and no doubt always will be. I just hope they get a good old karmic kick in the crutch

Here's a good site to give people bad press: http://stopstealingphotos.tumblr.com

Wow. That's a real drag. You have my hopes, too. Hope he ends up on Judge Joe Brown

Given I found someone else doing this last week I'm not surprised by another cheat but I am still amazed at his audacity to say the images are copyright Jo Binski!!!

Well no doubt it is so he can avoid the embarrassment of finding the images he stole on another thief's website. He of all people knows how its done!

Great that your skills are worthy of stealing - just a shame that their customers may be in for a ride if they expect what they see.

I'm it in any way.condoning this, but I really don't think POTN to out this person or worse, completely try and convict someone such as this.

I hate to see what these types of posts would do to this place, as they increase here.

Well I disagree....or at least I dont know of a better alternative or forum to out people. Yes I guess I'm taking advantage of POTN's popularity and google search effectiveness but as a lot of newbies look on this forum it will hopefully also help to highlight to everyone what can happen or the worst of photography... and hopefully teach people a (small) way to combat it.

Legally I dont see any options. Without being defeatist even the AIPP's legal advice is to "contact the photographer in question and be professional". What?! They're basically admit any legal action is difficult or nigh ineffective being that the photographers in question are overseas. This is my national body that represents the largest number of Australian and NZ professional photographers pretty much shrugging their shoulders and going "you cant do much about it".

So by creating these posts I hope I AM doing something about it. It's the best way I can think of to combat the theft of my images and the out and out dishonesty of a (very small) number of people in the industry.

Have you contacted Binski about this?

I think it is important to catch blatant illegal usage of photographs. Some of my photos have been stolen, too, and I have no pity for those who do it. We have not had many of these threads here, and I'm sure there is no trend going on. Exposing stolen photos to public via POTN is fine by me as long as the case is proven but I feel it would only be fair that target is made aware of this thread for comments.

Yes I should have mentioned in the first post that I have contacted Jo - no reply as yet.

Unfortunately probably a lot of wannabe wedding shooters do this to get their foot in the door... heck I don't even use images I took while second shooting... lol

Unfortunately outing them here probably will miss your target audience of local brides...
