Who is Meg? I thought those photos were someone elses.

They are. Is there a reason we can't say her name? Just wondering.

I guess not, I thought they were Lisa's. Looked like her style.

EDIT: They were....or at least the first image was. Looks like Meg has a similar style in some of her shots.

I just checked and it seems that he used the girl on the rocks picture from Meg and the baby picture from Lisa. Their styles are very much alike and both are very good.

No the girl on the rocks was definitely Lisa - found it with her copyright.

Using your professional website as a ranting/gossiping platform as if one were a fruit hawker in the marketplace is professional suicide. Ah well...

Well it is one thing to criticize the state of the industry but to have it out on an individual person is pretty classless.

Given that the images he used in the article were done so without permission of at least one of the owners AND that they had the watermarks cropped out when used AND that they were being used to promote the sale of his services over others he could be in for a very costly lawsuit.

Here's a craigslist ad they have up. I found it kind of humorous.

I looked for it too and could not find it. Can always check out the cached version though.

Ah, okay. It's really similar to Meg Bitton's stuff. Went back and did a little research. This was from the series Meg did: https://www.facebook.c​om …695732395/?type​=3&theater (external link)

Sorry about the confusion.
