@ikostudio, I think you have a clear case here to report the other photographer to Shutterstock, as it certainly looks as if you can provide the solid evidence that your composite came first, (and you own all elements within it), and that the other contributor lifted your balloons to use in a later composite.

I'm not sure why some are starting to distrust you? I guess maybe they are getting their wires crossed.

Anyway, good luck with reporting this, and please let us know the outcome.

I don't think anyone called him out.  However it would have helped to mention it was a comp in the first place.

I checked just 5-6 balloons on the bottom and yes, they are same.

Middle near bottom center, identical group colors and everything. These are stolen.

I didn't mention because it was so obvious.
but my problem is not just because someone use one of my images to make others and selling on him portfolio. Just look closely to this portfolio, and everyone can see that at least 50% of the images are composites, and its so ease to know witch elements belongs to the original photographer and the other elements that belong to someone and only change colors and proportions.

I do believe many photographers have is own images on this portfolio and some are in this forum.

He mentioned it in his original post. "I'm pretty sure that are and the user change the composition and colors in photoshop like I have done to. But i am he owner and have the raw file of the balloons to prove."

Right you are.  That didn't jump out at me.

I guess it raises the question of where all the other images (person, grass, buildings) came from as well.

Now you get my Point! :) If people start looking into this profile will discover a lot of picture from themselves.  >:(

Without being able to find the source images, I find it suspicious that the balloon thief's portfolio has composite images where the image parts are not in the portfolio too. For example, there's a series of diet images that have a cupcake, hotdog, doughnut and pizza slice in them. None of those food images are in that portfolio.

I did do a few searches to see if I could locate the originals, but I wasn't able to in the time I was willing to spend (unfortunately those are popular subjects).  If there were one or two more composites where someone recognized the stolen pieces used, it might be enough for SS to take the whole portfolio down (versus just removing the balloon image).

Yap, you're so right.

Hello, anyone have your own images on this portfolio?

I hope the agencies take it down. In my experience if the theft isn't easily spotted at a quick glance it is a nightmare getting some of them to act.

If you send a DMCA, any agency should remove the image and wait a counter notification from the guy who stole it. It means that he will have to declare that he is the owner/creator and that he has some files to prove that. Which wont be the case, because you have the raw files. :)

I found the cupcake, and at least the frosting is taken from one of Ruth Black's images. The thing is, he is taking just small parts of the images, changes the shapes and removes small details so the searching tools (tineye, yandex, google.images) wont work/detect them.

That image is on Shutterstock too - I've written to Ruth Black to see if she can get Shutterstock to take those down (there's a whole bunch with that frosting)
