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
We are delighted to add Mark Page’s name to the pantheon of talented artisans which comprises previous winners of this award. Mark has been a stalwart supporter and long-term contributor of JADE since we began and has always gone above and beyond what one could expect of any contributor. But the presentation of this award is also to recognise not only his ability and body of work, but his sheer determination to pursue his work and to explore new themes. Mark has impressed us over the years, and continues to do so, with his ability to produce stunning first-class images; developing a style, making it a success and then moving on to a new style; constantly experimenting and evolving. His hard work and dedication stands testament to what can be achieved with the right skills and aptitude, and with creative flair.
We are delighted to make this award to one of JADE’s most supportive and active contributors. Photographer Mark Page (Photoswithattitude) has worked long and hard to establish a body of work which is not only the envy of many, but which continues to push at the boundaries of erotic art. Innovative, original and always visually beguiling, Mark has carved a niche for himself and his unique style within the erotic genre. From colour to black-and-white, Mark is able to find just the right amount of seductive sensuality with which to entice and seduce the viewers of his work. Featuring his work in the magazine is always both a privilege and a delight.I’m not really here to collect friends, only people who are interested in working with me, or have galleries of their own work to look at for inspiration.
