Tiger Approached Photo Agency to Set Up Shots

2/25/2010 6:58 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Tiger Approached Photo Agency to Set Up ShotsTiger Woods made the first move in a scheme to release those propaganda-ish jogging photos days before his public apology, this according to the people behind the camera.

According to Jonathan Klein, CEO of Getty Images, Tiger's people approached him with the idea to shoot the photos.

Klein told CNBC, "We were approached and Tiger happened to know the photographer (Sam Greenwood) and has known him for a long time."

Klein also claims Getty has made "very little" money from the photo -- because they struck a deal with Tiger's camp to make it widely available to other wire agencies once they took it.

We knew the photos were staged by Tiger and Getty.

WOW TMZ, after today's mess, I really think TMZ has just taken 10 steps backwards. Trashy headlines, "Breaking News" that was not even NEWS at all. Plus other websites already posted this information and you guys say "Breaking News"!!!!!!!!!!! blah blah blah. I am not even going to visit TMZ online for the rest of the week and will NEVER click on your ads. TMZ online is a joke. This hard hitting "BREAKING NEWS" story was no reason to cancel TMZ live. Bye TMZ online

MyThoughts    

I find his pi$$ poor attempts to get back in the limelight disgusting at best. With him its all ME ME ME. LOOK AT ME. We I his wife I'd boot his pathetic anus right out the door and tell him to go pound sand. And he'd probably make a photo op out of that as well. He's a sorry excuse for a male.
