Photo theft
Dec 3, 2012

Yesturday, a Finnish photographer noticed that his photo was taken without his permission.

His original picture was taken with Canon eos 350D in Finland, but the thief claimed that she took it with a film camera in Canada. After further investigation of her site, more stolen photos were found. At the moment 2-3 of her sites are now down but not all.

LinkedIn, Hera Bell. "Hera Bell and her team are an award winning commercial photography studio serving the industry for over 14 years. Marketing. Branding. Annual reports. They photograph everything, from the interiors of private jets to portraits of VIP's. No job is too small or too big for them. They are your visual message experts."

  • Petri.1g.fi, HeraBell_photo_thief.JPG. Screencapture from Hera Bell's web pages showing the photo of Finnish photographer (Hera Bell's own text claiming, that this photo was taken by Hera Bell. Not true!). Plus a lot humbug (beginning "I shot it during our one month by car across Canada trip was sponsored by Fuji Canada..." Hera Bell's own words...). This Canadian photographer Hera Bell just grapped Petri's photo and invented a story and put the photo on her own professional home pages.
  • this is the original photo, that Hera Bell stole. See Petri.1g.fi/kuvat, _MG_9924_5_6_2.jpg.
  • Google nähtävästi sulki tämän ammattilaisen blogin Bloggerissa (My Photo Ramblings)
  • Ja tässä sitten toinen kuvavarkaus: Fotosidan.se, Höstmorgon (alkuperäinen kuva)
  • Ja tässä kuvaruutukaappaus eiliseltä, Hera Bellin blogista. HeraBell_photo_thief_Fotosidan_se_hostmorgon, screen capture taken 2nd of December 2012, before Google (?) closed Hera Bell's blog My Photo Ramblings. Selvä "lainaus".

(Foorumilta) Hera Bell jakelee Photosig:ssä vinkkejä kuinka vesileimat saa siistittyä kuvista pois:

Ja se alkuperäinen ketju, josta koko vyyhti lähti purkautumaan:

...

"...Aika ajoin on ollut tapana katsoa Googlesearchille minne omia kuvia on päätynyt. Milloin kuviani on ollut myynnissä postikorttifirmoissa, milloin webbigallerioissa. Tämän päivän tuorein löytö on erään ammattikuvaajan blogi jossa kuvaan on liitetty tarinaa miten ja missä kuva on otettu, millä kalustolla ja kuinka vaikeaa on ammattikuvaajan elämä. Onpa jopa osallistuttu kuvakisaan kuvallani :|..."

  • Varkaan sivut (the home pages of the photo thief Hera Bell Montreal Canada), My Photo Ramblings
  • Petri.1g.fi, HeraBell_photo_thief.JPG. Screencapture from Hera Bell's web pages showing the photo of Finnish photographer (text claiming, that this photo was taken by Hera Bell. Not true!). Plus a lot humbug (beginning "I shot it during our one month by car across Canada trip was sponsored by Fuji Canada..." Hera Bell's own words...). This Canadian photographer Hera Bell just grapped Petri's photo and invented a story and put the photo on her own professional home pages.
  • Google still finds this page (although it actually is not available any more... Hera Bell has taken this particular page down). Google "Studio Hera Bell Serenity... Wonderful British Columbia". If this photo was actually taken by Hera Bell, why take this page down? The answer is obvious...
  • And see Yahoo search results (cache), there's still the link to "Serenity... Wonderful British Columbia" Blog Archive 2011, December (20). But why has this page been taken down?
  • And how many of the other photos on Hera Bell's pages are actually taken by Hera Bell?
  • (klo 13:44Foorumin keskustelusta, edelleen Hera Bellin blogista: My Photo Ramblings, Light & Mood, Friday, August 28, 2009. This photo has also been stolen by Hera Bell. Tämäkin kuva on toiselta varastettu. Ks. Fotosidan.se, Höstmorgon. How many stolen pictures there are? Nyt kaikki etsimään lisää varastettuja kuvia ko. sivuilta. Huh.
  • (klo 13:51Unfortunately for Hera Bell, there's screencapture of the pages, it was too late to take down blog of August 28, 2009.)
  • (klo 14:11Looks like the whole blog of Hera Bell has been taken down. Petri informed Google about this photo thief, that is the most likely explanation for not being able to access Hera Bell's My Photo Ramblings).
  • this is the original photo, that Hera Bell stole. See Petri.1g.fi/kuvat, _MG_9924_5_6_2.jpg.
    • And this is the screencapture of Hera Bell's blog, HeraBell_photo_thief.JPG. Something familiar.... The thief got caught.

"Nyt tosiaankin näyttää kuva tekaistun tarinan kera poistuneen blogista.
Tarinan perässä oli vielä maininta että kuvaaja Hera Bell olisi osallistunut kuvalla johonkin kisaan menestyksekkäästi. Noh, tuskinpa tuosta kuvasta kovin laadukasta printtiä on saanut aikaiseksi...
Kuinkahan moni muu arvon varkaan kuvista on varastettua alkuperää?
Suosittelen muillekkin hieman tutkimaan missä omia kuvia pyörii netissä."
