This is a horrible day. This is a horrible thing to have to say: Photoswithattitude is finally closing it’s doors for the last time. This fetish/erotic art website will be closed on April 1st 2019. The website and blog will remain available until the end of the year, so my followers can still keep in touch.
Unfortunately, the demand for PWA services has not attracted an audience large enough to sustain itself and based on a long period of experimentation and my best estimates, it seems unlikely that it ever would return to those days when I was shooting every week ( and models actually turned up) Given the prevailing technological trends — (the expert results people can get using mobile phones for instance) — it is unlikely the demand for PWA services would ever return. PWA project was very ambitious and pushed the limits of what could be done on very low budget, on location and working with non-professional models. Hopefully the legacy will continue and people will in the future look back on what PWA achieved between 2006 and 2019
For me, the creation of PWA was a long-held dream. Over the last decade or more PWA work has been published in numerous books, websites, magazines and galleries across the world. There’s no better word than “heartbreaking” to describe what it feels like to have to do this but I really do not see the point in trying to continue. My love of photography will always be in my heart and I certainly will not be hanging up the camera – but it’s time to move on to other projects.
I am grateful to have had the opportunity to work with you. Take care for the future … Mark
