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.

Legal or not, the picture was a violation of privacy. It would be one thing if the guy were intentionally exposing himself, but the slimy photog took advantage of his situation. Besides, whatever happened to DECENCY?? Sheesh. I hope that guy sues the photog and any outlets using the picture, TMZ included.

As far as how he feel through, those seats tilt up so the snow can be flipped off them. I can completely understand how he might have sat down before the seat was back down, gotten dragged off the end of the ramp and fallen through the frame of the chair.

They probably want to fire the photog because the guy in the pic is gonna sue the pants off the ski lift makers, the operator and the ski resort. The photog was merely doing his job, imo.

Unfortunate that he is/was employed by one of those tourist-based companies.
He's probably better off going freelance anyway, catch a celeb in a similar predicament and he could retire.
