I've send him email and PM about some of his images that I found on another photographers blog but don't know if the messages are actually getting to him. If you know him and would like to let him know, here is the URL:

I know I would want to know...

Is the photographer claiming them in some way? It just looks like a folder under his site, but with the model's name (CJ Gibson). The photos all have Andy's copyright notice on them. Does the photographer somehow link to them with a claim that their his? How did you stumble on to these?
Cheers,
Roger

I sent Andy an Instant Message on AOL. He knows about the site and appreciates that people look out.

As I said, I was browsing 'popular galleries' on www.pbase.com when I came upon the work of this photographer: http://www.pbase.com/favorites/fasanotampa

If you look at this gallery (warning NSFW, contains nudity): http://www.pbase.com/fasanotampa/violetta2
you will find a link to his blog: http://timfasano.typepad.com/naked

That is where I saw the first image of CJ Gibson and a link to the entire gallery.

Regardless of his leaving the copyright, the act of saving these images on his site and rehosting them could be a copyright violation if he does not have permission. You'll notice I did not accuse the photographer of any wrongdoing, I simply wanted to make sure that Andy was aware that some of his images were loaded on another photographer's website.

I would hope that other photographers would show me the same courtesy (if I was only so famous!!)...

Thanks for the links.
It does look sort of odd. I still couldn't find the actual link to the page you included in your original post. But I saw the main photo of CJ Gibson with Andy's copyright notice on it. I noticed that this photographer has a fairly substantial O.M.P presance also. I think under fair use he might be able to get away with 1 photo in a blog story (but since he didn't give specific credit to the photograher and was vague in that area - it makes one wonder), but certainly a whole folder of photos seems excessive. But the question is whether he intended that folder to be public. Anyway, it will be interesting to see how this plays out.
Note: Amazing at it might seem, there is already a link back to this G1 thread on his Blog site on the page your reference.
Cheer,
rfs

Hmmm, does this mean we can call him all kinds of names and generally besmirch his character here on G1 and through the link others will read that he's basically got shyte for brains for doing such a mindless thing as not giving credit where credit is due...or at least asking permission?

If you scroll down on the blog page about 1/2 way, on the right you'll see her picture again with the link to the entire gallery. In my opinion the reason they are there is that he is somehow unhappy with CJ. Most likely because she didn't want to work with him, or wouldn't pose nude. At least that's my interpretation of the text in his blog. So he somehow finds a bunch of nude images of her that were made by Andy and posts them saying "ha ha, you posed nude". Again just my $.02.

The link is auto placed there by his web software. The referring page is transmitted when you visit by your browser. Fairly trivial to do for most web programmers (which I'm not). That's one reason I didn't post a link to the blog until you asked. So he gets free hits to an otherwise seldom visited blog.

I agree, Scott. He seems to have a beef with the model. So he found some photos of her and posted them. without permission (or thinking).

It fits under the "say anything about me but spell my name right" form of publicity. In my little mind, the model should post on his blog something with the sole intent of making the guy mad enough to dig up more photos of her...

I'm sure she's not really upset about her photos being on the blog, as long as they spell her name right too [grin]

Apparently he's not the only one using her images. Here is a link that has all the same images he used and also images of her sister who was a Playboy Plamate. It appears these photos were take sometime in 2003. Many of the ones of CJ have Andy's copyright notice on them.
