    That’s awful johomeowner – it sounds like a true sign of a faux to be so threatened by anyone with a better camera. What a twat!

    Once in class, we were talking about rights photographers (not ‘OFFICIAL’ but just people taking photos etc.) have to take photos in public places. It was more to do with using tripods as that’s a no no in some places after the terrorism act etc. My teacher told me that one of his students was taking photos in the middle of London, along the river Thames, and a photographer came up to her – in a completely public place – and said she wasn’t allowed to take photos and made her delete all of them in front of him. She was young and intimidated so the sad thing is she did – whereas most people would tell the guy where to go. Just unbelievable.


    Oh WOW both of those stories are just priceless!!  I do feel sorry for that student though, emf!  And the girlfriend from Joe’s story because she just plain got caught in the crosshairs.  Though, I think if I were your friend, I’d just keep going anyway.  Let him call the police on me eventually and let them laugh him right out of the building.


    One of our friends says he’s going to take his large format rig to the event next year just to see what the guy does.


    that will be awesome, ha


    Here’s one:

    A lot of bad editing, out of focus, pop-up flash use basically…
    And here’s one that’s definitely not her’s:


    Since I’m on a roll:


    oh and this one says her editing talents are known globally. “There are not many local photographers that can offer the quality of editing i can do”
    and here’s my favourite example of her “globally-known talents”



    Theres alot of fauxs around me that use an unpaid  “stock” (google) images to advertise with.  I have seen atleast 3 in preps for Christmas minis….


    wft – well here’s another one (except for it being a Thanksgiving one and having no advertising purpose)

    But still, I hate it when people do that. I guess if you’re a fauxtog, it’s pretty difficult to recreate a similar image like the one with the ornaments and the bokeh yourself.


    Oh and this last one I posted also has a classifieds ad:

    I think another faux that was mentioned in this forum did this too: “An outdoor shoot at any location of your choice WITH NO TIME LIMIT!”


    Hey Joehomeowner that’s because your friend Jude is a little bitch honestly. He likes to talk shit and then has his friends talk shit but when I confront him in person at the event, he stutters and runs off and then tries to act tough on the internet instead of being a man and talking to me in person. Tell him to take a shower and quit whining. I run the event. I am the organizer of the event. I know who you are now though. So no more worries about that one. Next time you guys decide to message the page during the event about me “harassing you” don’t get so butt hurt when we laugh at you and call you out again on it. You running right back to here yet again just only proves my point that yourself and Jude are whiney little bitch’s who can’t say something to my face when I confront you in person but instead need to run off to the internet to do. Seriously dude tell him to be a man. I even offered to give him my personal number and meet and talk about this like men no fighting or anything just talk but instead he just continued to bitch and whine and bitch and whine, call me a racist (I’m bi-racial) and all types of other stuff then finally block me. So again here is me extending an offer of talking to “Thaddeus Troublé Jude I” the little bitch that couldn’t. Next time Joehomeowner tell your friend to say more than 2 words and not to shake and stutter it doesn’t look good 🙂


    As for the guy setting with the speedlites and stuff no he didn’t have permissions from event staff because there are 3 people on the event staff, myself, and both of my friends. We run that event. So check your facts on that one as well before you comment.


    “He has now banned my friend from being a vendor at the event because her boyfriend was one of the photographers he was threatened by. Someone also made fun of him, and he’s now threatening “legal action” against people for “harassment”. Literally, the comment made by someone was that they knew actual professional photographers who could show up to the event to capture it. This guy is like the meat of the people that come here to defend themselves – threatening to sue because somebody said mean things about their photos on the internet.


    So first off, he spent last years event trying to get in my friend’s way because he felt threatened by his better equipment. This guy was using a Rebel with a kit lens and a pop-up flash and my friend had a mid-consumer Nikon (5000 or 5100) with him that day, but a better lens and an SB-700. So that guy spent all of last year being mad at my friend, whose girlfriend was a vendor there. Oh yeah, and my friend? He got them their band last year AND this year (same band) and one of their vendors (which there were only two last year and three this year). So he’s a good guy, helped the event out and all, and then this guy is mad because he’s taking photos. The event goes by fine and my friend posts his photos to the page, just like every other person that was there – they are deleted. My friend posts them again, thinking FB had an error… Deleted. Third time… Deleted. And my friend was blocked from posting on the page.


    Fast forward to this year and this “professional” writes a letter to my friend’s GIRLFRIEND – the girl who is vending at the event – and asks her to make sure my friend wasn’t “in the photographer’s way” because “he’s the official photographer of the event” and then rambles about how he didn’t get any good photos because my friend was there (instead of him not getting any because he sucks – just look at his page “The Digital Lightbox” – he posts out of focus and overexposed/underexposed stuff daily). My friend, trying to be professional about it both because he does make some money via photography, and because his girlfriend was selling stuff at the event, didn’t say a word about it to this guy or to anybody.

    Fast forward to Friday – night before the event – and this “official photographer” sends a message through FB to my friend telling him to leave his camera at home because he’s not welcome there with his stuff. My friend, pretty much having being the official photographer for the band that was playing, does not leave his stuff at home. During the event, the guy comes up to him and says, “ARE YOU WITH THE BAND? WHAT DO YOU THINK YOU’RE DOING HERE? I’M THE OFFICIAL PHOTOGRAPHER.”

    That’s just funny, right?! So my friend says to this guy, “Do you ask that of everybody with a DSLR? I see lots of people here with cameras.”

    The guy says “Well you have really nice stuff, so I figure you must be with the band or something. I’m the official photographer for the event.”

    My friend laughs and goes back to shooting the band. He posted about it on Facebook via his iPhone or whatever and everybody was getting a good laugh about it. Somebody decided to go post on the event’s official page and poke fun at him…

    Now he’s banned the girl from vending, keeps messaging my friend’s friends, and is threatening “legal action” all because a girl said “I know some professional photographers if you need one for your event.”

    Crazy people out there!”


    Since only maybe 25% of this is true and if need be i post screen shots as well.


    Friday I wasn’t even on the computer because I was in Fredericksburg, VA at a event and didn’t get home til 3 am and then left VA at 9am and didnt arrive till 1130ish in Maryland. So that part isn’t true.


    “ARE YOU WITH THE BAND? WHAT DO YOU THINK YOU’RE DOING HERE? I’M THE OFFICIAL PHOTOGRAPHER.” This part isn’t true at all as well. I said this exactly

    Me -“Hey dude, did you gf talk to you?

    Jude “stutters” yes

    Me – Okay stay on that side

    Jude – “okay


    Last years photos I didn’t even touch I wasn’t an admin on the walk page at that time so that was probably my best friend who did that. He probably didn’t like them.


    Yes I did tell his gf that and yes I did tell them not to come back. We weren’t going to have them this year but we needed a 3rd vendor.


    The rest I should probably just be quiet on honestly. This will be my last post on this subject as well. Like I said Joehomeowner tell your buddy Jude to quit being a stinky little punk bitch and running to the internet and having all his friends do the same. I’m right here I was right there Saturday, Jude has my number even my address. I’m willing to even meet him and talk nothing more than that. Stop acting worse than my 3 and 5 year old do when things don’t go their way and they don’t get what they want. Un-block me from Facebook


    bwahahahahaha!  Hey, CrazyJow, first of all, it’s “bitches,” plural, not “bitch’s,” possessive.  Secondly, because you’re born bi-racial, that means you can’t be racist?  Really???  Third, “un-block me from Facebook.”  If you don’t like these people, why would you want to see and interact with them on Facebook?


    I never said I didn’t like them 😉 Just un-block me so we can talk and quit running to the internet and whining, come to me and say it to my face.  Quit hiding behind something or someone else. The racist comment came from when I posted something about how watermelon is to blacks as tacos are to spanish people. So he said I was racist against Spanish people and black people. I’m half Spanish myself. Oh I’m not surprised the grammar thing came out and could really care less about that. Like I said to Jude several times. Quit acting like a bitch. I came up to you and tried to talk to you in person but you said 2 words. I tried to setup something to get some beers and talk this over. Lets do this like men. I’ll even buy the first round of beers. I’d just rather talk to a person face to face instead of spouting off on the internet and continually hiding behind my friends that’s all. If you’ve got such a huge issue with me say something to my face not behind my back. Only “bitches” (thanks Seth for clearing that up 😉 ) run their mouths behind someones back when they have the chance to do it to that persons face and turn it down.


    Spanish?  Don’t you mean Mexican?

    Spanish people are from Spain.  Mexican people are from Mexico.  Hispanic can encompass them both.  Tacos are from Mexico.  Therefore, they are Mexican food.
