confused

I joined a site to get some models for my portfolio and I was curious as to what the other photographers in my area are shooting. So I did a search on photographers within 25Miles of my home. I found a few and their stuff was OK but I would have retouched the images before I put some of them on my portfolio. Then I came across one that caught my eye, Photo's by Sharon Lee I thought wow, she's ALMOST got my name so I check out the profile and it's this chick that lives in my town and goes to the photo club I go to but her name is Sharon Martinez NOT Sharon Lee. She implies she has a website at smugmug but I couldn't find it, I found mine when I did that search but not hers. Is she trying to pass my website off as hers in a round about way? What should I do about it? I don't want people thinking that her and I are the same person. How do I address this on my profile page without making it sound like I'm dissing her? I just want people to know that her and I are two separate people.

Thanks Friends!

Re: confused

At least in the initial or 1st round I'd advise that you assume the best, ie she's a nice person, will readily see the potential for confusion that will do both of you harm, and will readily discuss mutually agreeable ways to resolve the situation. We'll call that "the Butterfly door" and reserve the "what's behind the Tiger door" for later if needed!

Re: confused

You should be able to put a direct link to your gallery on the site which should help to alleviate confusion...I couldn't find a sharon lee or sharon martinez on smugmug either.

You may want to ask her gallery ame on smugmug

Re: confused

LOL I just commented on her page and asked what her site was on smugmug, that I was on smugmug too and wanted to look at her page. In my comment is my name and a link to MY site.

Butterflies are better than tigers I suppose. Thanks Russ.

No doubt.
Sharna, there are dozens of Sharon Lees out there with photography.
Could be Lee is her maiden name, mother's name, or she just likes that name. Could be she is in the process to establish a site. What you are afraid of, has happened before, but I doubt she would be that bold, since you both are in the same photo club.
Just be that butterfly.
When and if the time comes, you, I'm sure know how to be a butterfly and sting like a bee.

Re: confused

Thanks Dad!

I have a history with this woman too and it's less than perfect. I think my freezer would benefit here.

Re: confused

Post the shot of your freezer for her...trust me..it gets rid of the riff raff.

on a side note... a couple of years back, I found some of my "horror" images on a guys website, and he was claiming them as his. Even changed the names and so on. A few of us actually found images that belonged to us. Ater we contacted him, we were amazed at how fast the images disappeared and within a few days, the whole website vanished.
The images were taken from the forums as it seems he went through all our posts and "borrorwed" them. Another reason why I post low res images with frames. People like to steal.

Re: confused

Awwww, I've seen your fridge, and it's far nicer than you'd like us to think it is--just like you. I've got to agree with Russ; until there's actually an issue, don't stress yourself into thinking there is one. I rather like taking the high road. I don't always win, but the air's certainly fresher up there! You'll likely find she's just starting out, and maybe Sharon Martinez is taken, or some such. I think until she tries to pass a photo off as yours,take comfort in your proven skill and talent.
