'''George Harrison Marks''' (6 August 1926 - 27 June 1997) was a [[U.K.|British]] [[glamour]] [[photographer]] specializing in nudes. He was also the original publisher of the [[spanking magazine]] ''[[Kane]]'' ([[Harrison Marks Publications]]) and the creator of a number of [[spanking film]]s.
 
In the early 1960s, Marks also directed some of England's first [[nudist]] and "[[nudie cutie]]" exploitation films. He began, as Kamera Productions, making nude "stag" films for the underground market. These were silent 5-minute film loops showing busty women in whimsical situations undressing before the camera.
==Film loops==
Marks began, under the name Kamera Productions and Kamera Cine Films, making non-pornographic nude "stag" films for the home movie market. From 1960 to 1968 me made around 140 silent 8mm film loops (ranging from 50 to 200 feet in length). These showed busty women doing striptease acts or appearing in whimsical situations where they undressed before the camera.
 
A trio of short films made in 1968 explored [[BDSM]] themes. In ''The Lash'', a captive girl is chained up in a dungeon and whipped. ''Macabre'' features a leather-clad dominatrix who whips a male slave. And ''1 & 2 Make 3'' is about two girls in leather who encounter a violent intruder. These films recreated scenes from his full-length film ''Pattern of Evil''.
Expanding on this simple concept, he made his first feature film, ''Naked as Nature Intended'', in 1961. This was followed by ''The Naked World of Harrison Marks'' (1965), ''Pattern of Evil'' (1967), ''The Nine Ages of Nakedness'' (1969) and ''Come Play With Me'' (1977). His preference for photographing and filming large-breasted women led to his being dubbed "The English Russ Meyer".
 
==Feature films==
In 1979 he worked as a fetish photographer for the spanking magazine [[Janus]]. In 1982 he left ''Janus'' to create his own magazine [[Kane]], described as "The CP Journal of Fantasy, Fact and Fiction for Adults."
Marks expanded on his basic concept of combining beautiful nude women with fantasy scenarios for a series of exploitation films. The first was ''Naked as Nature Intended'' (1961), a nudist camp romp that was typical of the period. This was followed by the episodic ''The Naked World of Harrison Marks'' (1965).
 
His next film, ''Pattern of Evil'' (1968), had an darker S&M theme and controversial sex scenes. This was made to compete with the "roughie" [[sexploitation film]]s being made in America. This film, which appears to be lost, was banned in the UK.
