I was contacted the other day through my website from a web site developer who says his focus is on paver installers and masonry companies. I'm actually launching my brand new website in a couple weeks but the curiosity got the best of me. I followed his link and I started to look at sample sites that he built already. The home page of the very first one had the cover photo from Unilock's catalogue as the featured project. The very first example! 9 out of 10 homeowners who see that on their homepage would believe that they built that. I dug deeper into their website and I can assure you that they did not build it. Never mind that Unilock might have something to say about this guy using their professional photographs. Now this annoys the heck out me. Maybe it's because I have websites and picture editing on my mind but I can't stand when people pass off other work as their own. It's a total misrepresentation of who that company is and what they can do. In a separate search I saw the same group of photo examples in 3 different websites!!!! Are you kidding me? They are in separate parts of the country so it's not one company running 3 sites to generate more traffic and leads. The guys who built those sites stole an entire portfolio from someone. For you guys who have professional photography that you paid for of YOUR projects that you installed on your websites be careful. People steal things all the time and you would never know that Bob'sPatios.com is using your work to sell jobs. Watermarks are on my photos but I get the sense that they are like locks. Only keeping the honest guy out. Can they be removed from photos by a third party?
