    Hi everyone!

    This just happened after waking up this morning on Instagram. Someone DM'ed me about a shoutout for shoutout. Since this account was small ad we are both in the same niche, I was up for the offer.

    I checked his profile and found out that his account has half of the photos that I have along with my flagship photo.

    I did not do the shoutout yet, nor do I intend to do after what I discovered. When he will ask me what happened to the shoutout, I will pretty much call him out and tell him that I will not do one until he gives me credit for the photos that I have taken that are on his profile.

    I was annoyed and but I just want to know, "What would you do?".

    I wouldn't do a shout out and explain why and call him out on it.

    If they are your photos and you have proof, and the other account never credited you for them; report him to Instagram.

    I don't mind others using my, or anybody else's photos, but if you don't have the decency to credit the owner; then you are a thief. And I'm not referring to forgetting to mention it once or twice, but 4,5,10 times it's not forgetting. I've only reported other accounts a few times, and each time Instagram has deleted/banned their account.

    I don't want to report unless that's the last option. I just want him to credit the photos that I have taken by tagging me or mentioning my name in the description.

    Tell him to give you credit on all of your work, or you'll report him. 90% of the time you don't have to go directly to Instagram.

    Otherwise, tell him to get fucked. Unbelievable how shameless some people are.

    I would take his money and be like "it's compensation for stealing my work". And not do the shoutout.
