'Gilmore Girls' Star

Drops $500,000

For Photo Of Strangers

Screw Kickstarter ... celeb photog Tyler Shields was able to fund his first movie ever by selling one of his photos to a huge "Gilmore Girls" star ... for a cool $500,000.

Tyler -- famous for his bloody Lindsay Lohan art, among other things -- sold the piece to Scott Patterson ... known to people with TVs as Luke from "GG".

The sale did more than just line Tyler's pockets. We're told he specifically created the piece with the intention of using it to finance his first film "The Outlaw" (which he wrote, directs and stars in). In fact, the models in the pic are two of the flick's stars.

FUN FACT: the $500,000 pic is bigger than it looks on your tiny computer ... 16 feet by 9 feet ... i.e. the size of a wall in your house.

Nice move DUMBAZZ! You will NEVER get back what you paid for that POS if you ever try to unload it...
If you have that much money to waste, you should at least do something good with it...like a charity, or some other worthy cause!!!
WHAT A DOUCHE!
