Rory Lewis photographer warning.

Hi there.
Just wanted to send a word of warning out to other freelance retouchers out there who might be contacted by a photographer known as Rory Lewis. He is a fraudster who has been making use of various online retouching operations such as mine without paying a penny for work done.

Ensure that you only accept full payment upfront or he'll make off with the images without paying! Also ensure that you place huge, clear watermarks over all low res samples sent to him.

Mr. Lewis has caught many people out, not just retouchers but models too. A blog has been set up (not by me) to warn everyone in the industry about him - see it at this link http://rorylewisscam.blogspot.com/20....html#comments

Thanks.
Craig

Without more evidence, I and I suspect others are not willing to go on a witch hunt on your behalf. (at your behest or not, you get my point).

Mike, I'm not interested in conducting a witch hunt - as you can see Godmother understands that my only intention is to warn other fellow retouchers about the scam so that they are not caught out as I was.
How much more evidence do you need? Just look at all the comments on the blog link I posted! And the link Godmother submitted speaks for itself.. I think you understand now.
