“Images so powerful….”

CJ Holding with Nick Elliott

CJ Holding, Proprietor of Studio Gallery in Henley-on-Thames, exhibits the Gods of Rock collection. Here’s what she had to say about it:

“Nick Elliott’s images are so powerful they have a soul of their own. You can hear music just looking at them. Nick’s ability to capture the nature and personalities of his subjects like he does is a gift, and one which any photographer would want to aspire to. It’s a privilege to offer Nick’s Collections. Love them.”

Exhibition Planned For December


Had a great meeting with the owner of jgallery in Northampton this week to discuss dedicating their wonderful exhibition space to a themed show of Nick’s work in November and December. Keep visiting the blog for news as it develops.
