Bingle angers paps with photo deal

TAKING a cue from experienced paparazzi catnip Britney Spears and Lindsay Lohan, Lara Bingle is understood to have struck a deal with photo agency Big Pictures for a cut of the profits made from her own photos.
It is understood rival agencies are seething over the deal, which are generally commonplace in the US.

The move means Bingle can create and control the pictures released for sale to magazines and newspapers.
Bingle was snapped yesterday looking perfect after a long-haul flight from London.

The photo had a price tag of $250 and it is thought Bingle would receive about 50 per cent of profits in a deal.
News of an alliance came as a surprise to Bingle's manager, Titus Day, who denied the pin-up had struck an agreement with self-proclaimed "Mr Paparazzi" Darren Lyons.
But the millionaire Big Pictures agency owner has been seen lunching with Bingle on several occasions in recent weeks, and the former cricket WAG was seen at Sydney airport recently giving one Big Pictures photographer directions to her location.
Big was also the only agency that managed to snap her in London with new beau Jason Derulo.
A rep from Big Pictures didn't return calls yesterday.
