Being robbed is like a punch to the stomach. Seeing someone making money with your stolen possessions and not being able to do anything about it is just a swift kick to the gonads.
That’s exactly what Australian photographer Jon Grundy experienced when a daredevil photographer [name removed] broke into Grundy’s home and stole $15k worth of gear. The thief then used the gear to shoot photos that he offered for sale online in addition to garnering much media attention from his dangerous exploits. But, one thing the thief hadn’t counted on was that each of his photos was meta-tagged with the name of the photographer from whom he stole.
