Many artists that Nick has previously had the pleasure to work with have already expressed their interest in being associated with the project. Nick is also in discussions with other musicians and TV/film personalities who he hopes to be included in such a worthwhile cause.

“Under the present circumstances, this allows a wider audience to visit my exhibitions and enjoy my art from the comfort of their own homes. There is some new and fabulous artwork on show which introduce them to a previously unseen facet of Nick Elliott. “ (Nick Elliott)

Nick’s ongoing Rockumentary series continues with a pictorial documentation of chart topping band Dead Reynolds and love song loser John peach. Both projects will result in a body of fine art images for book publication in the continued series, and images for band merchandise.

Nick’s close association with Aturn Films progresses with the continuation of ‘The Story So Far’. A revealing documentary about the life of Nick Eliott, due for screening at selective cinemas, terrestrial TV and Amazon Prime.

“Filming is proving a little difficult during lockdown, so we have adapted to the circumstances and started to film segments at Elliott Studios which is quite a laugh as the JD starts flowing.

Andy Blithe and Nick are still going crazy in Norfolk with the adventures of “Two go mad in Norfolk”. The boys can be found filming in Nicks home county of Norfolk so keep on the lookout for them on their travels. Penthouse I is already on the road and Penthouse II ready to dip her bows in the water to add to the Norfolk shenanigans. Once editing commences the Two Go Mad series will be released on YouTube and other social media sites.

Nicks stylish career choices have led him on an unusual journey of life, sprinkled with celebrities and topped with an unmistakable gift of creating art. Despite his desirable lifestyle, Nick keeps his feet firmly on the ground.

The tour of duty continues

The book tour continues into a new year and there have been some brilliant compliments received about it.

Although there are too many to share with you, here are a couple that we were particularly proud of….

“Having seen both the HardKase and the hardback edition of TEN, it’s clear that Nick and his team have put together a superb collection of images. The range of performers alone sets Nick apart from his contemporaries, and the quality of the images firmly seats him among the most proficient performance photographers of our time.” Jolyon Mason, Owner

“As usual Nick Elliott has put a high quality product together. From the flight case to the book itself, it feels quality. The Images capture feeling and intimate moments of an artist deep in to their performance.” John Allen, Owner

“A Decade In Images makes you look at the performers in a different way. In some ways, it finds the person behind the performance.  This is photography as an artform combined with music as a passion, a potent combination indeed.” Neil King, Editor, Fatea Magazine

The book draws you into the evocative world of black and white photography, capturing the intense moments of time and place occupied by the celebrated artist. The addition of colour creates a prismatic journey that encompasses the whole visual extravaganza. Kate Mason, Oakham

More news about the tour will be coming sortly.

Route A149

We don’t usually bring you news of every photographic shoot that Nick’s involved in (there’d be too many and we thought you’d get a bit bored!).  But the latest shoot was a little different…

Nick has worked with country-folk/rock, singer songwriter, Lesley Curtis throughout her career and decided she’d make a fabulous subject for some concept work.

So whilst shooting the new cover for her latest album, he took the chance to take work through some other ideas.

The weather was great, the location was the North Norfolk coast, and the shoot was just awesome.

A great day was had by all…

 

Fated to speak to Fatea

Music magazine Fatea has been covering the Cambridge Folk Festival for 21 years and, for some of that time, Nick has shot images of the festival for the magazine.

So, it must have been fate that one day Nick would find himself the subject of an interview by Managing Editor Neil King…….http://tinyurl.com/3vdmw4q
