Lizzie Shepherd Photography Chose Abuse

Lizzie Shepherd Photography Chose Abuse

8 YEARS  AGO MY LIFE WAS COMPLETELY CHANGED by

Lizzie Shepherd Photography on social media and today I still do not fully understand why it was done. My only thought is that a competitor or two wanted to totally destroy me. This was written as it happened.

Before anyone has a knee jerk reaction to the word abuse, Lizzie Shepherd chose on that day to use a public post on Facebook with her mates to publicly bring me down. Public, deliberate, Lizzie Shepherd chose a social media platform to bring me down so she could shine. As did the others. They chose to participate. Chose to.

instead of asking what I was doing she chose to ignore me and chose social media.

I will swear on oath in any court this happened, will Lizzie do the same? Lizzie you started this then ran away.

Even today, 8 years later, all my internet sites are being watched and commented on.

THIS WAS NOT A DISPUTE OR A FEUD OR WHATEVER THESE PEOPLE WANT TO CALL IT. IT WAS PURE CHOSEN ABUSE.

Did it occur to her I would go into total shock, be sick, shake, and stay like that for days. Did she know I was in the middle of a 4 year retrospective care review for my Dad who had died not 3 years before.  Did she know any context before she gleefully chose ‘a bit of fun bringing me down’.

It was a normal busy day, booking hotels, working hard at marketing, updating my website (now there’s a clue), looking for ideas, research, paraphrasing, trying to get my brain to work (I had memory loss and face blindness when my Dad died), wondering what I was doing wrong, I’m working at top speed, thinking at top speed, booking workshops, looking for new areas, with a passion.

Then BAM I felt as though I had slammed into a brick wall, I felt sick, I was sick.

Everything was taken away from me in one day because Lizzie Shepherd Photography chose to do so.

Everything was taken away, work, social, business, everything.

It hasn’t stopped 8 years later. It’s strange how they choose to do the deed and enjoyed, delighted talking to others about it but I’m not supposed to talk about it, or name it.

It was a technical sentence about lenses that I thought ‘that’s nice, how can I put that in my own words’ but I never got chance to say that in the onslaught of abuse to which I was subjected.

Was it because I had been in business longer than both Digital Swaledale and Lizzie Shepherd Photography. I still don’t fully understand why they did this publicly on social media because this just cannot just be just about a sentence.

Most of these names have been winners of the Landscape Photographer of the Year/Take A View Competition LPOTY. Was it to stop me competing as I wasn’t in their clique?

Many of these names run photography workshop companies. Even though my name was not mentioned they provided enough information online for me to be identified, even down to making anagrams of my name. They chose to do that, even ex coppers.

July 2015

Lizzie Shepherd Photography, Mark Littlejohn, John Horner, Kirsten Berg, Guy Aubertin, Doug Chinnery, Sean Goswell, Goproexplorephoto, Robin Hudson, Digital Swaledale and a few others who were really rude and abusive towards me, trampling over my boundaries, going way over the top.

Lizzie Shepherd started the harassment on Facebook. She had been told a sentence had something to do with me but she did not contact me until 6 hours later.

They all chose to do this, to take part, to post, to destroy me so they could shine. You chose to do this Lizzie Shepherd, Doug Chinnery, Mark Littlejohn. You chose to do this publicly but yet you complain. You chose this.

It was a technical sentence about macro and telephoto lens ie macro used for close up, telephoto for intimate landscapes etc

During this 6 hours, she teased and had some fun with the ‘establishment’ and by sly encouragement ie posting enough information online for people to google and by private messaging, she had revealed who I was. They were making anagrams of my name. They chose to do this.

The correct term is virtual mobbing or dogpiling and I think dogpiling is the most appropriate word.

As for John Horner who was the instigator behind all this, I have no idea why he has done this or why he has such an unhealthy obsession with me even to this day 2022.

August 2015.

Lizzie Shepherd and John Horner (Digital Swaledale) try to get my LRPS taken away from me. They then try to close my websites down. All on my birthday as it happens. The count is about 10 now trying to get my LRPS off me.

November 2015.

Lizzie Shepherd tries again to get my LRPS taken away from me.

December 2015.

New Years Eve harassment on twitter set off by fake account Joescally53. This involved Lizzie Shepherd Photography, Valda Bailey, Sean Goswell, Karl M Photo, Breenster.

This was my Dad’s birthday and I found this particularly cruel as he only died just over 3 years ago.

January 2016.

@joescally53 hacked into my email address

February 2016.  

Thanks to Lizzie Shepherd Photography I now have a permanent website stalker.

March 2016.

And so into March with Joescally53,  and my website stalker – 8 months now,

Old Facebook account hacked into by cyber stalker and which I have now deactivated.

April 2016.

Cyber stalker anonymous troll #joescally53 has woken up again still spying on me so 9 months now

May 2016.

Cyber stalker anonymous troll #joescally53 has woken up again still spying on me. 

My Twitter account compromised.

Started receiving notifications from a more recent FB account which I had deactivated, now given a very long password and deactivated again.

My business page on Facebook has been hacked. 

June 2016.

Now having to delete all pages/instances where people can contact me via email as now getting a lot of spammy mail disguised as people wanting to buy my van who funnily enough disappear when I ask for a phone number.

Someone hacked into a deactivated Facebook account and my cyber spy has increased their activity again.

July 2016

My cyber peeping Tom (not set/Richmond) is getting quite regular again up to 60 hits a day, wonder if they are trying to hack in like they did my other sites?

August 2016

LIzzie Shepherd  I suspect I know to whom you refer – I’m afraid I can’t do much about their behaviour:( -(but I suppose your behaviour by choice was pristine.)

Lizzie Shepherd – ‏I’ve been getting this nonsense for over a year now – as have a few others…

  • She conveniently forgot she and others chose to populate the post on Facebook that started this

I can’t work out if these people are naive about using Twitter preferring to use it as a messenger app (which is not public) or if they are just being plain nasty. But they chose that platform  

I owe a big thank you to folk at Cowbar Staithes who kept checking up on me as last year I was so distressed I was ready to jump off cliffs.

They were bloody annoying offering me water, coffee, someone to talk to, they wouldn’t leave me alone, I felt human again, the moment passed.

So I’m nearly 60, I guess this is going to go on until I die?

Although posts about me are still on Twitter forever more I, apparently, am advised not to talk about my experience even though I was very close to jumping off a cliff. Sounds really silly now but I had lost everything I loved doing.

I was so enjoying my workshops, it would have been a great transition into retirement but bam! it has been forced on me. I cried when I asked Photium to take Fotodayz off the web.

If all that was over a sentence a bit OTT if you ask me, so what was it really about?
