One of the things I see time and time again is that new photographers tend to think nothing of putting up photos they aspire to take “someday” on their new website or Facebook Page.  Sometimes they actually clarify they aren’t theirs but usually they don’t.

It’s always extra amusing when they lie like a rug in their about page.  This photographer, who picked up a camera for the FIRST time in 2011, managed to photograph for Victoria’s Secret, Seventeen Magazine and Jimmy Choo that same year – while also winning dozens of awards if you believe his About page.
