I am the creator behind Photo Stealers.  My name is Corey and I've been running the Photo Stealers blog since 2009.  

What IS Photo Stealers?

Photo Stealers is a blog where I list photographers, no, "faux"tographers, who steal images from the internet and present them to the world as their own original works of art.    

But Why?

The short answer is because many other methods don't work with stopping these photographers.  Asking for the images to be removed often falls on deaf ears.  DMCA's are often tricky to sort out and file.  Going through the legal system is costly and ineffective.  It also burns clients and leaves them less likely to invest in professional photography again.  

Why Patreon?

Google Ads and ads in general isn't really what my vision is for Photo Stealers.  They are also something that past thieves have manipulated so I'm not making much, if any, money from ads at the moment (about $20 a month currently).  I also hate the look of ads to be honest.  The money from the Patreon will go towards maintaining the website, expanding the community to continue to fight against fauxtographers and to help with the ongoing legal counsel I need.
