After arriving in the beautiful Republic of Ireland yesterday for a commissioned shoot with the talented musicians, Simon Collins and Kelly Nordstrom, it was an early call time for Nick today.
After checking the location of the shoot yesterday evening, it was time to prep the photographic equipment this morning, in readiness for this much anticipated shoot.
But first, Simon Collins, son of Phil Collins introduced Nick to the Collins family before a truly welcoming Irish Breakfast to start the day off in style.
“Myself and the elliottstudios team could not have had a better welcome from Simon, his family and Kelly. Our accommodation is top drawer and I’m blown away with how kind everyone is here. After getting here we went to meet the guys at Simon’s studio and had a pretty pucker meal afterwards.” Nick Elliott
Andy Blithe is also accompanying Nick in Ireland to continue ‘The Story So Far” documentary, chronicling Nick’s life story and his unique talent for producing photographic fine art of mainstream musicians within the music industry.
“I’ve pre recced several additional locations this morning. The original location is stunning but the surrounding area is fantastic with so many other photographic opportunities that we are spoilt for choice. It’s absolutely wonderful. The weather is squally, but it will add to the atmospheric images that I’ve story boarded for the shoot. Definitely going to get a few face melting shots today”. Nick Elliott

Nick and Andy, producer of Aturn Films, have been filming the ‘2 Go Mad In Norfolk’ series over the last 18 months, and have now developed it into an amusing, lighthearted podcast, where the boys can be heard giving their opinions on the serious issues of bondage, home-cooked chips, popular sayings, ailments and the U.K. weather, to name a few.

In the meantime the filming for the popular ‘2 Go Mad In Norfolk’ series continues, for release later this year on selected platforms, which sees this lovable duo travelling around Norfolk visiting the lesser know attractions that this wonderful county has to offer, talking to the Norfolk locals and creating laughter and mayhem wherever they go.
“It’s not for the faint hearted, more for the open minded! It’s great fun doing this with Andy, we have a lot to talk about.“ Nick Elliott. Rock art photographer.

Ask Nick Elliott……….anything.
Q1. Of all the things that you are involved in, what makes you the most excited? D. Penn Cornwall U.K.
A1. What makes me more excited than anything is to tick the boxes of a life long dream, which is to eventually release all the ideas and creative frustrations that have been pent up inside of me my whole life. The concepts that I have had in my head for years and to turn them into reality and make imagery from them that expresses how I felt. It’s the next chapter.
Q2. What do you do when you are not working? D. Forde Coventry U.K.
A2. I spend time with my partner, I like a good walk, watch classic British comedy, and some of the great classic Films, and I can always fit in a nap every now and again!
Q3. Out of all your projects, what was the steepest learning curve for you? A.Feliciano. Italy
A3. My Dark Art Projects have uncovered facets to me that I am still discovering about myself, so I suppose that has become my steepest learning curve. They released many pent up emotions, it felt like a personal unveiling, a liberating experience. Then taking all that emotion and actually producing art from those feelings, I found it so creative because I didn’t and still don’t care of the consequences.
Q4. If you could switch places with someone, who would it be? J.Bell NY USA
A4. David Bailey, without a doubt. He has led many lives in one lifetime and achieved so many great things.
Q5. In photography what is the most challenging image you have captured. I. Mkrtchuan. Sheffield U.K.
A5. My Dark Art was, and continues to be the most challenging of images that I have taken. Capturing my raw physical emotion in self portraits, its very difficult to bring that emotion to a visionary form that I feel portrays my message.
