Website photo plagiarism

After outing him over 110+ examples of plagiarising other authors’ content, Daniels reworked ParamonosModels.com – twice. But rather than taking the opportunity to remove all infringing copy and start over, he kept much of the plagiarism, and added dozens of photos.

Problem is, he is using those photos to market himself as a model agent and photographer, but he didn’t take most or all of those photos and doesn’t rep all or most of those models.

Below is what we’ve been able to work out. We’ve found many models, most of their representation (agencies), and most photographers. References are below, as are screenshots, in case the infringing content is deleted. You can click any of the screenshots for a full-sized version.

The home page main image is Brazilian model, Izabel Goulart. She is represented by several agencies around the world, including Supreme Management in New York City. The photo is from a Nike shoot (obviously), and was shot by Mel Bles.

Despite showcasing them as his own work, most (and probably all) of the photos on this page were actually taken by established photographers around the world. We’ve found most of them. The photos on the page are arranged in slideshows, so we’ve captured an example image for each collection plagiarised. Most images referenced are part of a series, and have been plagiarised as a series.

ParamonosModels.com/Interview

This page is ostensibly for models who have “made it to round 2”, and showcases photos and models apparently devoid of any link to Gabriel Daniels whatsoever.

There are a few small photos on this page, some of which we’ve identified.

  • The larger photo at the top is, again, a Michael Kors watch advertisement.
  • The woman in the bikini and caftan is Diana Villas Boas, a Brazilian model. Ms Boas is represented in the United States by OneModel NY – https://everipedia.org/wiki/diana-villas-boas/
  • The two women in bikinis are from a swimwear collection by Bali-based designer, Andi Bagus. This particular product appears to be sold out, and the page removed, but it is still coming up on Google Image Search (screenshot of search results).

Reverse image searches on the other photos comes up with dozens and dozens of copies of the same photos with tags, “Girls with abs”, “Badass chick with guns”, etc.


ParamonosModels.com (second redevelopment)

When the site was redeveloped for the second time in a month – promoting both Gabriel Daniels’ model representation and photography – many of the same plagiarised photos made yet another appearance. All of the screenshots include the URL. You can click on any of them for a full-size version.

This page heavily features series by established photographers from around the world. Because they spread down a very long page, we’ve created a PDF of the whole page. We also have a PDF of the page source. The link to Paramonos Studios at the top of the page goes to a page promoting photography services (link to a PDF).
