Were the pics of George Clooney on holiday staged for the paparazzi?

Post by Katiedot on Wed Mar 19 2014, 07:49

So, who called the paps? Or are we to believe that the same photographer coincidentally booked the identical holiday as George Clooney in two different countries? Thanks Henway for this:

George Clooney has been photographed on safari in Tanzania with his new girlfriend, Oxford-educated British barrister Amal Alamuddin.

The actor and the elegant brunette appear in a series of sumptuous shots that People posted online Tuesday, showing the “Monuments Men” star looking debonair in stylish safari gear with his arm around alluring Alamuddin.

But some Clooney watchers wonder how a photographer managed to chase the couple to East Africa and jump out from behind a bush to get the secluded safari pics, which are credited to Getty Images.

Alamuddin also looks perfectly made up as if for a magazine shoot. Some wondered if the remote location shots were staged to show Clooney had moved on, now that his ex Stacy Keibler is married and rumored to be pregnant.

One blogger posted of the pristine shots, “This was not a stealthy pap situation,” pointing out the pics look “almost like they’re posed.”

But another source said Clooney had nothing to do with staging the pictures.

He’s back in New York Wednesday for meetings for his Casamigos tequila brand. Will Alamuddin be on his arm?

Anyone can take pictures, no need to be paps, who ever drove a Jeep in safari could have taken them.

What is interesting is that he is on a vacation, so these pics are not the usual ones him leaving or arriving hotel or restaurant. I don´t know if he has done it before with previous girlfriends - so something new perhaps.  cameraclick

No I don't think anyone out of the jeep took those pics. Must have been a professional pap and at the same time pics from the Seychelles....... Those pic look just too good  Very Happy 

I think George and Amal decided to do it this way and only allowed to publish them once they were in NY.

Which I think it is ok to do it this way.

 No, he did the same when pictures of him with Stacy were released to the paparazzi to confirm rumours that they were dating. Here: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Thanks Katie for digging up the link.  It makes sense of it all.

I would call it more a "release" of pictures taken while on holiday with the purpose of ending speculation, and a confirmation of status quo.
I would recommend learning from British Royals, where a photo opportunity is JUST THAT.  One or two photographers of choice are invited for a hour only to take posed "happy" pictures with the intention of releasing them, not selling them, to who ever may wants them.

That would present the same end, but in a more charming and transparent way.jmo

And Lainey's take on it:

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

PEOPLE has exclusive photos of George Clooney on safari in Tanzania with Amal Alamuddin, the English lawyer he’s dating now. Click here to see. They’re exclusive to the publication, with the online post promising more shots of the couple in the print edition on newsstands tomorrow. Which means they’ve been holding them until their competition closed their issues. It is indeed a major exclusive. And these are prime shots.

I mean, despite what they might try to tell you, this was not a stealthy pap situation. The photos are being distributed by Getty Images. It’s about as official as you can get. And it shows in the quality. Almost like they’re posed, non? Please don’t tell me you don’t think Clooney knew this was happening. Because if that’s the case, I’m not sure, after all these years, we’ve learned anything at all.

So this is basically an announcement and confirmation: Yes. I am dating again. She is my bonafide. Please, world, meet Amal Alamuddin.

She’s not a cocktail waitress. She’s not an aspiring actor/dancer/tv presenter. No. She’s a proper barrister. Click here to check out her credentials. Those are some credentials, non? This is not the standard Clooney escort profile. Which probably means the benefits that he can usually offer his paramours wouldn’t have the same appeal. Then again, given her focus on international law and human rights, he may be of some influence…just not the kind of influence he’s used to exchanging in his romantic relationships. Which, I wonder, if that’s also attractive to him. For once it’s not a part in a tv drama or access to designer dresses and invitations to the Oscars but something more profound that he can offer. Sh-t, I’m almost proud of him.

Funny comment  Razz  Razz  Razz 

So more pics in the magazine tomorrow. I hope they post them online too. Maybe both of them sitting on an elephant  Sofa bounce   Very exiting....

At least now the first pics are out everyone can get wild for a bit and then hopefully everything will calm down. I guess this is was George and Amal hoping for I guess. She still has to do her job.

I wonder if the vacation was staged too or just a combination doing the pics at the same time while they were really on vacation.

I have a house in Kenya
 and I have made many private safari, that I rented a jeep for me and my friends and I assure you that while on safari, except where there are restaurants, you can not get out of the car because you're in the middle of the bush and wild animals are everywhere and it is not easy to see, there aren'y professional photographers and the only pictures that do are the photos that you do or you are asking others to make you ....... I do not believe that George and Amal did a safari with other I tourists who are not as rich as him I always did a safari with private guide!

The photos were on Startraks which has so many staged shots...it is their business. I think they were no matter what Page Six says....

The consensus on US entertainment shows this evening (ET and Access Hollywood) is that the photos were staged by George and he allowed their release. This allows him to be in control of the message when introducing a new girlfriend. And yes, no paparazzi on safari-- so no accidental sitings, photos-- all staged managed.

I think he wanted to get her out there in a way that was calm not crazy . The world sees the pictures and knows so they can both get on with their lives without the madness that in sues every time he steps out with a new girlfriend.
