The assumption that Gillian arranged the paparazzi on both occasions and was able to buy the pictures is just that -- an assumption. Your judgement of her is based on that. If you were to see the situation without that assumption (which might very well be incorrect), how would you feel then?
I have never made the assumption that GA has been offered the pictures afterwards. My judgement is not on her, but on the situation she is a part of. There is no reason for me to make thought experiments and so on. I have no doubt that the pictures were ordered work. Who has ordered them, I do not know? -and I will never get that knowledge!
With regard to Portofino, it could be her agent, PM’s agent, their PR agency, PM or GA who ordered the pictures. The newest pictures who look like a similarly procedure could have been ordered by GA, her agent or her PR agency. But ordered they are! Especially with regard to the last pictures, with her children. How exciting is it to follow a family on vacation? Once you have taken the sweet, beautiful and cute pictures, you stop! You do not sell more of the same kind. Unless they are not to be sold, but ordered work. Remember, to take candid shots, is a work. They must also survive! But to follow a mother with two children for several days, to take holiday pictures, do not give that good a salary and is not that good a scoop. Look at the many times there have been candid shots of DD, his kids and so on (it’s obvious to pick him because we are part of the XF fandom where he is also represented. ) Here we usually see and find 3-4 pictures and in very extreme case we can find 10-20 pictures. And lately, mostly videos. Videos because you can take pictures from that and upload live visual material to webpages.
Even the royal house that represents the country in which I live, has never had that amount of candid shots. They are extremely popular and also abroad, but they have never had so many candid shots. In addition, Italy is not a mecca for candid shots, Portofino is, but not Italy as such. So ask yourself how can there be over 100 and over 500 images when it’s GA? She is not so popular, even if we all really want her to be that popular. In addition, she is not stupid, she knows what she’s doing and has always known. We must stop seeing her a flawless goddess. She works in this industry and knows what she’s doing, and she has people who take care of her interests and is helping her. Using candid shots is a very common thing.
