A Night In With Nick Elliott…

Following the upgrade and refurbishment of elliottstudios the studio is now up and running to it’s full potential, with state of the art equipment to produce ‘A Night In With Nick Elliott’ and’ The Country Rock Show with Nick Elliott.

“I’m really so excited by the concept and content of “A Night In.” My vision for the show was a stylish Manhattan apartment overlooking the New York skyline , late at night, with a drink and some sexy music just washing over you in the darkness.”

Nick’s inspiration for the show was born from an early age, late nights under the covers listening to pirate radio stations, Radio Caroline and Radio Luxembourg. More recently American FM Radio stations particularly Radio Paradise have fuelled his vision to recreate these important times.

“The show has evolved since it began. It has become more stylish and seductive. I want listeners to relax and come on a journey with me in the crook of my arm.”

Nick Elliott Rock Art Photographer…

“The new style show will feature a predominately an all Amercian playlist like no other, sprinkled with interviews from music artists and stories from me and my friends. The kind of tunes I’ll be playing will be the music to get lost in, to make love to, to relax to, it will flow through you, it will remind you that life is good.”

“The Country Rock Show With Nick Elliott “is an completely new show and is a collaboration with my dear friend and Amercian agent Lee Williams.”

Pandemic on the Dancefloor…

The COVID-19 Pandemic has derailed the music business causing destructive soundwaves Ripling out and destroying years of music workers livelihoods.

Nick has voiced his concern on the ensuing Pandemic and the long-standing effects it will have on the live music business and his friends within it. “ the Pandemic has ground the U.K.’s multi million pound music business to a halt, causing catastrophic knock on affect to everyone associated within the industry. Not only affecting artists but record labels, independent recording companies, freelancers, venues, festivals and agents. This year could change the face of the music industry for ever”

Nick Elliott Rock Art photographer

Thousands of festivals and tours have been cancelled or postponed leaving creatives and their fans feeling uncertainty for the future. The music and entertainment industry relies on their heavily freelance creative workforce. The loss of their income, usually for completed work only, may force many creatives out of the industry forever. Many talented people could find themselves redeployed into vocations that do not represent their talents, which will be a total loss for the UK’s music industry.

“ I’m particularly worried about the new aspiring musical acts who rely on live music festivals and tours to showcase their talents and get a footing on the music ladder many talented artists may go undiscovered“

The rise of music streaming, virtual live shows, podcasts and FB streaming is encouraging and many have found innovative ways to keep the music live and to keep fans listening.

Nick Elliott Rock Art Photographer

“ I think that once we come out of the other side of this, the music industry will experience a boom. If artists and their associated workers can survive this brief period of hardship there is a potential for the music industry to begin to thrive again as fans flock back to the music scene.

Life without music is like a life without love“

Q & A Time With Nick Elliott…

Got a Question for Nick?

He will answer it in his typical Rock n’ Roll style with no holds barred.

49580879406_e9e22dfb87_o

1. Who was the main inspiration for your art?

” My Dad! and of course the legend that is David Bailey. Dad brought me my first camera and fanned my passion for photography. David Bailey showed me what could be achieve and how I needed to push boundaries”

2. Do you prefer film or digital photography?

Each method has it’s own values. Film can be more unpredictable and you do really have to know your stuff to shoot a good film image , with shutter speeds, exposure, etc. Digital is instant, requires less expertise, but it possible to achieve a different feel.

3.How many bands have you worked with?

“Too many to name them all. Everyone from Blondie, Metallica, Alice Cooper, Motorhead, Robert Plant, Roger Daltrey the list goes on.

4. What is your favourite image so far?

“I don’t know, I’ve not taking it yet. I’m always striving for perfection and bettering my art I need to move the line, to make a mark”

5. What has been the most difficult shoot you’ve ever done?

“Probably all those shots while I was working in advertising, big commissions that could take days to set and light, before I had even pressed the shutter.

Please send all your questions to Nick Elliott’s P.R at benicebond@icloud.com and we will feature them in the next article.

A day out with Nick and the girls…

Nick has been busy on another conceptual fine art photographic project, that will raise some eyebrows.

F0A5E699-34DA-4750-8892-4BABFCE25528

A total step away from his rock art photography, this new project is a series of images that represents the falseness, and delusion of modern day society.
“ A day out with Nick, Delia and Amelia“ finds Nick once again in front of the camera, and in bed with two surprisingly up and coming models, Delia and Amelia, who Nick has got to know very well over this last year.

F0A5E699-34DA-4750-8892-4BABFCE25528

“ The girls and I have got to be quite good friends over the last year. I’m very excited about this particular photographic project, it’s going to lift the lid right off the sweet jar big time.”
