do you know about CopyScape?

If not you should check it out!

Unfortunately in this business, the most successful and inspiring photographers have the most copycats. This can be quite frustrating because we all know how much time, effort, and creativity we put into our work, our websites and our business branding, so for an unethical photographer (or fauxtographer!) to come along and just swipe it all...well, that pretty much sucks!

I hear about website plagarism almost every time a group of pros gets together...it is just sadly another part of the business these days. This week alone, I have been alerted to three photographers who stole word-for-word verbiage from my own portrait site...kind of makes me go "hmmmmm," in a creative business like photography, especially when they copy my bio!

Use a site like CopyScape if you dare or type your original website wording into "quotes" and google to see what comes up...hopefully, you will find nothing!

But wait. What does “almost perfect” mean? Well, these are the planners that have teeny tiny aesthetic defects. Don’t worry! They haven’t been totally wrecked, they just have small ink marks or scratches that occurred during transit to our office. You can see images of these small damages below.

Last year, I traveled to the state of Goa in India with Leave UR Mark, an organization that offers amazing opportunities for volunteers and travelers in India, and stayed for almost two weeks. It was my second time visiting India, and proved to be a vastly different experience than my first trip to Agra and Mumbai.
