Wow. That photographer should also keep a lawyer on retainer because of the many visits to court when the images that are produced don't match the portfolio.

I remember seeing this pop up. If the shooter is inept enough to have to seek other people's work to represent as his own he won't get very far.

Crazy. As much as I think so little of those who would post and try this, I think even less of the photographers who will sell themselves out for $100. Sheesh.

Why stop there? If you can buy from photos from another photographer, why not purchase an entire wedding? That way, if the couple asks, you'll have a full wedding of good photos. Eventually, you'll meet or exceed the quality and be fine.

I love the part where it says, "do not email if you can't prove the images are yours." Its like he/she is trying to make sure things are done legally/ethically on some level while at the same time being completely oblivious to the fact that they're attempting to defraud potential clients. Bizarre.

He's thinking, I want to buy your photos legally, so I can scam my clients.

he should just bought from http://www.shutterstoc​k.com/ (external link) or any other stock photo sites.

Like these photos: BRIDE AND GROOM (external link)

by posting on Craigslist, the photographers who he is buying from can easily out him.

:D

... and I wonder why. If they can't shoot good enough photos for their own website or bc, their should practice harder before accepting Clients, imo.
