Yeah the model removed the picture but I think it's still on the photographers website.

Concept may be copied but execution is fail on his part. His model looks like a 20 year tobacco addict. To pull off the innocent look, the model has to be young and fresh.

If he got a model that was young and fresh with better lighting, then you'd be done LOL

Welcome to the club of copied images. I have had my images stolen outright. One guy even eliminated my copyright notice and put them up for sale on his site. Others have just copied the ideas. I remember doing the Adam and Eve shot (with a snake and apple) and posting it on OMP. Within a month there must have been 20 copies on OMP. Most of them sucked but it is one of the reasons I don't always post my best work online.


Thanks for stopping in and having a look.
Prints of my work are available for purchase. Please contact me offline or thru PM if you are interested.

Ahh i feel your pain..at least your concept was stolen, but not your whole images. I just recently had my images ripped, myself, an entire series by a gov't organisation :( if I wanted to chase them down I could... but the effort.. and the legal fees.. just isn't worth it for those particular images. It is flattering, though ;) I was listed as having "an involvement" in the project when their idea/concept and control of the images were copywritten and owned by THEM.. of course is violating but there's a limit to how far you can chase anything, especially for the cost to you and the enemies you make from it. Hell in my case even though the scope was much larger, i'm still flattered. At least were good enough, eh?

I see the guy has the pic removed, that's nice of him.

That pic was taken on Sept 11, 2008, so "aamith" copied Dave too. ;)

I've had an image of mine copied by a model turned photographer. I found it flattering but it was a blatant copy like what happened here. It wasn't that great of a pic so I didn't bother to say or do anything about it. Then a few months later another model had a pic that was basically an exact copy. Again I didn't care enough to do anything. Still flattering though :)
