Thanks to an awesome Jeep family member, millerjl, we were informed that one of our images was being used to sell items on eBay. Being a professional photographer, I frown on anyone using images that they did not take. In fact, most professional photographers have their copyright buried deep in the file itself. After contacting eBay and the lister, the image has been removed!

It always amazes me how fellow Jeepers watch out for each other. Thank you Chuck. Jeep on!!

Glad you where able to get your image removed. To bad Ebay will probably not do much else about it.

I took a look at your SmugMug page. You have some nice work there. That JL is looking nice my friend.

I shoot wildlife for a hobby. Take a look if you would like. https://troynemitz.smugmug.com

Stellar work my friend. Always nice to meet another Canon shooter! Not that other platforms are not amazing, but I have shot Canon for my entire career. Maybe our paths can cross in the photographic world someday!

How does one get access to the boudoir section? I mean, if they were into that kind of thing of course...

I bet there is not a ton of pictures out there of a JL for use. There may be a market for it right now for people that will pay a small amount to do things the right way. Not my gig but maybe someone could make a few bucks.

Do you guys mind posting the shots that where poached?

The NFL let you keep the Vikings shots?!?! Those are obviously sweet. Do you still get to shoot them?

I shot a couple games the year they won the division agains the Giants and when Favre set the NFL record for TD passes. They took all my cards.

I'm obviously jealous of your photog skills and your Jeep. :)
