Good spotting Juergen .. that photo looks so close you would think it was just a few seconds away or from another photographer standing very close.
The mast to the right of the powerstation stacks vs to the left.
But looking closer, the lighting looks different (clear blue sky vs hazy grey)and the big difference is the pattern of stacked logs is quite different so it's two very similar shots from two different days.

I don't know if nz painted out the vessel's name or the image he stole was already like that.
Google searching doesn't find any similar shots.

This dude is a seriously messed up character Tongue. Soooo many photos of so many different ships in so many different locations, all stolen...does anybody actually believe that he took them all? Doesn't he have anything better to do with his life  Roll Eyes ??  I didn't go through all of them but have found only one of mine, the dude has no style...I mean, the pic is not the best one, looks good on SS but on IG it looks dismal, blurry. C'mon, if you are displaying my pic show it properly  Smiley!! IG should block him....
Thanks to those who contacted IG.
Cheers...

I'm gradually getting results from Instagram with frequent nagging.
I include a listing of other stolen images whenever I file a complaint about nader_zahra posting my work.  Sometimes it is ignored but eventually someone there just deletes everything on the list.
I think it's about 200 removed now and his display is looking less attractive with so many Shipspotting photos gone.
Instagram never answer any of my questions and I always get the same robot reply with the same weasel words.

I get all the photos I can identify but I'm sure there are some Shipspotting photos I've missed because I can't make out the vessel's name to be able to track down the original.

If anyone can help with any I've missed or some of the many older images, pass the info on and I'll add it to the material I send to Instagram with my regualr nagging emails.

Hello Owen,
I have seen this photo of mine
http://www.shipspotting.com/gallery/photo.php?lid=2529508

I also have a question: I have tried to create an Instagram account from my desktop computer, but whenever I fill in my data (name, e-mail, password...) and click submit, the only message I get is "something went wrong, pls try again later" I has been like this for days. Any thoughts?
many thanks for your work :-)

Sorry Csaba ... I'm not sure what the problem would be creating an account.
I'll track down that photo but for anyone else, what I need is the link for the stolen pic on Instagram & the link to the same pic on Shipspotting.com like this:

@Owen
I have not a Facebook account and will not create one, but a friend just informed me that @NADER_ZAHRA has an account with hundreds of stolen ships photos from Shipspotting, many of your phantastic drone photos are also visible. Just take a look.

Regards
Juergen

Thanks Juergen ... I'll have to start on his other account too by the sound of it.

I have been following this thread for a long while. It makes my blood boil that Instagram fail to close the thief's account.
However, it would appear that he is Syrian, so why bother posting only in English to his account photos?

I suggest to copy and paste the following phrase in Arabic  AND English, (which may offend his morals - if he has any) to as many of his photos as you can. He will get the message, as will his followers:-

أنت لص الصورة. لا شيء من هذه الصور هي لك. وقف سرقة الصور. لا يوجد لديك الأخلاق.

You are a photo thief. None of the photos are yours. Stop stealing photos. You have no morals.


Regards, Rick

The site is suspended?
https://www.instagram.com/nader_zahra/

But a new site (same as before with other name) is online:
https://www.instagram.com/ship_spotter68/

The labelling of stolen image of "ship_spotter68/" is entirely appropriate, and the more that are identified the better.
But may I request that abusive/vulgar language is not used, especially when associated with mentions of ShipSpotting. 

Is this really a new page?  Or have the 7000+ pics from the old one just been transferred to a new user-name?

Facebook/Instagram are too spineless to suspend him.
I keep reporting his account but nothing happens beyond removing the individual images I list for them.
It's the same page with a changed user name, possibly because he doesn't like the additional comments getting posted on his stolen images.
I think getting the comments in nearly as soon as he posts might irritate him because they are there for most of his audience to see.
Until Facebook actually enforce their rules, if he wants to keep posting stolen images he now has to put up with these comments.

Interesting.  Yesterday when he simply changed his user name, I could still see his pics with links to the old user name.
Now none work.
My last email from Facebook IP team was one of their standard robot replies saying they needed more information before they could look into my report.
No clue they were going to do anything but perhaps they have?
If so it only took about 40 nagging emails.

Now to work on them about his Facebook a/c.
