Photog Could Get Sacked Over Skier's Shrinkage

1/10/2009 5:10 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

SkierThe dude who took the incredibly awesome photos of a skier being dangled with his dangle hangin' out -- could lose his job over the incident.

Marty Odem -- a photographer who works for a company that shoots pics of skiers at Vail Mountain ski lifts -- says he's already been suspended over the pics and believes he'll probably get fired over the incident. The photo company says the pics violate the skier's privacy. No pun intended.

Odom wrote on a snowboarding website that he took the pictures on his day off and was carrying his own camera. Even with the threat of losing his job, Odem claims "the photo is worth it."

And it sooo is.

Qutoe Even with the threat of losing his job, Odem claims "the photo is worth it." unquote

of course Marty Odem would say that! He just found out how much MORE money he can make as a start up papper then as a boring photog taking ski lift photos of skiers

This is the sick way that liberals have fun. This is a total and complete violation of privacy and I hope the skier sues the photog for everything he has.

I still am curious as to how this guy wound up with his ski pants down around his ankles. We all heard how he fell through the seat because it was left in the wrong position, but why were his pants down? Was he getting some action before he slipped through, or was it innocent? Inquiring minds want to know.

If that man gets in trouble then anytime a regular pearson takes a picture at a resort he is to be sued? He was outside at a
public resort, he is not at a private club. The man hanging should sue the resort and give the photog money and use the picture as evidence.
