Saw this NEW! copycat photo by Bobo today : http://www.etsy.com/listing/99929007/horse-photo-white-horse-equestrian
Seems he really liked the one by this top artist that is two years old: http://www.etsy.com/listing/78543535/nature-photography-white-horse
As a photographer who tries to straddle the fence between staying original and staying relevant I know how hard it is not to be overly influenced by the art around me. But this sort of carbon copying is weak to say the least. Think of something on your own bobo.
We’ve actually posted someone’s callout on Bomobob’s extreme inspiration before- https://etsycallout.wordpress.com/2010/08/07/reader-email-intellectual-theft/

Hi. Irene of Eye Poetry Photography here: the photographer who was copied by bomobob. I’ve been aware of his practices for years. This isn’t the first time he’s been “extremely inspired” by my work.

There have been other instances as well.
