In 2013, Nick spent a busy Summer shooting the Scottish hit makers, The Marmalade, for the band’s project Penultimate – a CD, DVD, and vinyl record with promotional booklet – and the culmination of that work is the publication of Nick’s third book: Three Weeks One Summer.
This 132 page, high quality, hard-backed book features a collection of unseen, intimate images of the band including; backstage preparing for a show, onstage performing, enjoying some down-time and meeting and greeting their fans.
Talking about the book, Nick said: “This is a true milestone in my career – to be able to create the images for the content of this book and produce it under my own publishing company, has made a very big, lifetime ambition come true.
“Shooting the Penultimate project with such a great bunch of guys was just wonderful. It was a great period of time to work on something so special plus…it was a big barrel of fun!”
Nick first met Sandy Newman, leader singer in The Marmalade in Nashville in 2010. Penultimate was the opportunity for them to work together after that initial meeting and Sandy commented:
“Nick has brought a masterful imagery to Penultimate and delivered, down to the last detail, everything he described to the band on our first meeting to hear his ideas.
“It is a pleasure, and indeed an honour, to be photographed by someone who can put you at ease. He instils a trust in you I have never come across before.”
Strictly limited to 250 copies and signed by Nick, Three Weeks One Summer is available to buy in NickElliottStore.com at £125 plus p&p.
