    This is a fun little blog with lots of amazing eye candy (and I know one of the models who's "competing").

    Thank you!

    I also know a model who's on there, and who did NOT give them permission to use his pics. In fact, his agency would let him go if he did do something like that...not to mention what the photographer of that particular shot will do once he also gets notified.

    Sorry but I have no respect for places like that use use other people's work without their permission, just to get money from ads.

    PS. I will also be notifying several other physique photographers I know who may have taken many of those pictures. That site will not be up next week.

    Yikes! The legality of the site using all those photos and the generation of ad revenue didn't occur to me.

    Ah well...I enjoyed the site, but I definitely see your point of view.

    Is it necessary to be a dick?

    Just my .02 - I started the post and I don't think he's being a dick. Based on other threads, I believe that paulflexes is a photographer himself and thus probably feels strongly about this.

    No, the site is making money off other people's hard work...and copyrighted material...without permission. AND they edited off all the watermarks. THEY are the ones being dicks. I just happen to be in the industry and find that type of behavior very rude and inconsiderate...not to mention illegal in most places.

    If it was your work, and if that work was done commercially (ie. YOU are making money from it), you would be pissed as hell to see your work stolen. What they are doing is a disgrace to the modeling industry.
