Nick Elliott,The Story So Far….so far

Nick is delighted with the responses and interest shown in a new one hour production by Aturn films documenting his life as a rock art photographer.

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.

“ I believe you should never forget your roots and remember where you came from and who made you. You should never lose your head up your own arse, because no player is bigger than the club“ (Nick Elliott. Rock art photographer)

So when Rob Harvey, radio host and producer, featured ‘The story so far’ in his popular ‘TheRob Harvey DJ daily’, Nick and the Elliott Studio team were thrilled to be included in such a well respected publication.

“It was a very pleasant surprise to see the story featured in Robs DJ daily press” (Nick Elliott. Rock art photographer).

Meanwhile, ‘The story so far’ documentary continues in its production with Aturn films, owned, produced and directed by Andy Turner. Andys previous documentary The Heart of a Lion’, is scheduled to be screened at Norwich open air cinema next week, current COVID 19 guidelines permitting.

‘Nick Elliott, The Story So Far’ is scheduled to finish shooting next year. Watch this space for further updates.

Rocking it up….Nashville style

If you are missing your live music daily dose you can tune into Nick Elliott’s ‘Sound and Nicks Vision’ at Southside Broadcasting and listen to all 55 podcasts. Containing scintillating conversation and superb tunes, take a listen and give yourself an audio treat.

Nick‘s new radio show, ‘A night in with Nick Elliott’ has regrettably been briefly rescheduled due to the difficulties of this year. The new launch date will be in the Autumn. Nick is working hard at Elliottstudios collaborating and producing the show to be aired via podcast.

“ Country Rock radio is a diversion from my usual music genre but I’m looking forward to bringing my own unique style of classic rock to country rock radio. I’m a big fan of the USA particular Nashville and its musical heritage. it’s great to be back in Nashville“

All wrapped up and ready to go!

Elliott Studios is always busy looking after Nick’s images and the task that has dominated activities of late is the re-distribution of limited edition fine art to sell in our partner galleries.

New work for new collectors has been printed, mounted and framed – a precision job which can’t be rushed. This month we’ve been handling around 35 images and, now, they’re ready for wrapping and distribution.

The fabulous images in these photographs will soon be en-route to our newest gallery to the fold – specialist music art and book publishers Red Label Publishing, who will be the exclusive online supplier of Nick’s work.

Red Label Publishing are currently developing the new online gallery at: www.redlabelpublishing.com but in the meantime, you can check out the news as it develops on their blog at www.redlabelpublishing.co.uk.

 

 

 

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
