How Co-Founder of Fstoppers Handled His Images Being Stolen

Lee Morris is not only an extremely successful commercial and wedding photographer, he’s also one of the co-founders of Fstoppers. Fstoppers is one of the most popular and widely visited photography sites on the internet.

Recently he received a Facebook message letting him know that some of his work was possibly being stolen. It’s the same old story. A newbie who’s work isn’t up to par trying to pass off the highly professional work of others as their own. The interesting part is how Lee handled it.

First of all he never mentions the guy’s real name. He did have images linked to the article but removed them after too many Fstopper users were looking the guy up. He doesn’t come off upset or vengeful. He comes off extremely understanding and forgiving. Especially since the photographer in question sent his sincere apologies.

His calm, graceful response to this guy’s theft is pretty inspiring. Lee’s point-of-view was that he’s so successful that this guy’s theft couldn’t affect his business in the least and everyone makes mistakes. Check out the article here

Shark-Deterrent Wetsuits

While shark attacks are rare it’s safe to say anybody who spends a lot of time enjoying activities like diving or surfing would prefer to avoid that fate. Using the sophisticated science behind shark vision Hamish Jolly, an Australian swimmer, came up with wetsuit designs that actually deter shark attacks. In the video the science behind the design is explained along with the test results using two predatory sharks (the great white and tiger sharks). It’s a pretty fascinating watch and might change the designs of wetsuits forever. Check it out below.
