I know all of you remember Meagan Kunert and how she stole others images. I read an article she posted today and thought I might share

She made a mistake...I've made plenty. Forgiveness FTW.

I don't know how she thought she wasn't gonna get caught!

And she said she only got into the business in 2011. What about the idea of starting at the bottom and working your way up like most professions.

I'm all for forgiveness but...most criminals are sorry after they get caught. Screw 'em.

She's definitely courageous to give her career a second chance and posting about it so openly.

The internet is extremely unforgiving.

She only repented AFTER she got caught. "I'm so sorry i got caught"......

From her post.

" I started researching marketing techniques, and found several photographers who had gone from shooting for free,
to booking 30+ weddings a year and making over $100,000 a year in less than two years."

That's the dream being sold by EVERYBODY selling stuff to this industry.

The reality is quite different.

Yup. The industry is full of snake oil salesmen and women who understand that their prospects of making money are far higher through workshopping than through actual photography.

Stealing the work of others and passing it off as yours is bad. As bad, if not worse, is wearing your religion on your sleeve in order to get business.

^^^ I don't know that she is using religion to get $$ at this point. In her own words her photography career is "over forever." Its not like she's trying to stage a photographic comeback.

I guess I should give her the benefit of the doubt, since I didn't see her site before. Given what she posted and what other things she did to market herself, I wouldn't be surprised. Sort of like that twit that's doing wedding workshops.

BTW, as one who purports to follow Christ, I believe she will receive the forgiveness she seeks. She paid a high price for her mistakes. I guess I should be more forgiving and regard her as a good person who made some terrible decisions.

Not only she is wearing her religion on her sleeve to drum up business, she is also relying on self-loathing and the "I'm now popular on the internet, book me while you can!" card. She should find another profession to poison and consider photography as nothing more than a hobby.

Really, after her name/reputation is completely ruined she'd want or be able to go back to shooting? I doubt it. I say give her the benefit of the doubt and let her pick up with another career. Professional photography is not going to work for her any more.

That was a great read. I love it when people admit they are wrong and beg for mercy from the rest of the world...


Now, I just hope no one finds out about that hooker in Bangladesh. My business would be ruined!
