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.

the reason his pants were ripped off is that his boot and pants got stuck in the chair mechanism that turns it around the lift and were literally Torn off of him. That is why he was also flipped out of the chair. hes lucky all he did was hang nude for a while instead of having his foot and leg shorn off.

Any one who thinks its ok to put a photo like that out to the public is a moron. You think there should be no limit yet you probaly agrerd that Joe Francis should have been locked up. This was a very unfotunate accident and that ass is making money from it. Worst part is the Ski resort will probably be the one the victom sues.

#5 Donna, you're an idiot. The guy was at a public place. The only thing liberals like Nancy Pelosi do is run things into the ground like they did California. Now they are going to do it to the whole United States. Say goodbye to your tax check for the next 4 years.

I feel sorry for the poor guy. At what point does compassion come in and not just a sleazy opportunity for yourself to get recognition from someone else's bad fortune?

If laughing at this man makes you happy, you have deep issues to need to confront.

If the Photog works for the ski resort he should be fired for embarrassing the skier and the resort.
