ITS A PERSONAL PODCAST

Nick has started to develop his own personal podcast, for release in the next few weeks.

As Nick has become increasingly in demand over the last few years. His unseen rock images are now being distributed amongst galleries, his controversial Dark Art Projects are causing a stir with fine art collectors, London exhibitions are being organised, and several commissioned projects with high profile music artists, are only a select few of the commitments that Nick and the elliottstudios team are in the process of organising.

With such a hectic calendar, Nick finds there are a lot of topics to talk about. Nick’s personal podcast will include broadcasts from location shoots, his travels, current projects, personal opinions and views on anything that this outspoken rock art photographer wants to discuss.

Sometimes controversial, but still full of the humour, this personal podcast is well worth a listen to catch up with everything that is Nick Elliott.

“ I can’t wait to start getting these podcasts released, I’ll talk about anything and you can keep up with what me and the team are up to.” Nick Elliott.

VINTAGE HAS AN ADVANTAGE

Sebastian Alderete, director of The Music Photo Gallery, has invited Nick to supply some of his unseen, vintage rock images for sale within his gallery.

Nick is in the process of selecting some of his iconic vintage fine art rock images from his archives. Selected images include Motörhead, Metallica, Ozzy Osbourne, The Who, Def Leppard, Iron Maiden, Bill Wyman, Robert Plant and Earl Slick.

After the selection process is completed and submitted, The Music Photo Gallery will also undertake the promotion of Nick’s fine art mages to their market in the USA, Latin America, the Caribbean and Mexico. Nick will be in good company, as Mick Rock, Bob Gruen, and Chris Stein are just a few of the iconic music photographers who already supply to TMPG.

The Music Photo Gallery (TMPG) continues to validate music photography as Fine Art Photography. Representing the most important photographers of music history worldwide, whose work has captured the popular idols. Based in New York City and co- working from Buenos Aires, TMPG creates, produces and develops original cultural content in innovative formats partnering with artists, photographers, filmmakers, curators, producers,and professionals from all related areas, in order to cement the music photography genre as an accepted fine art expression. TMPG is the only music gallery to specialise in vintage, rare, and never seen images, working with curators, museums and international fine art institutions.

“This is such a great opportunity to get some of my unseen images into a gallery with such a remarkable reputation. I’m really looking forward to working with Sebastian and The Music Photo Gallery.” Nick Elliott.

GUINNESS ALL ROUND

Nick has packed his bag and is headed to the Emerald Isle today as his Irish Tour kicks off to a rather frisky start at Luton Airport.

Staff at Luton Airport took such a shine to Nick and his unique attire that they insisted that he take it all off going through customs, much to the amusement of the elliottstudios team.

Nick is being commissioned by Simon Collins to shoot his new album artwork and promo material at various locations around the Republic Of Ireland near the musicians hometown. Simon, the British-Canadian drummer and lead vocalist of the talented rock band Sound of Contact and son of Genesis drummer and singer Phil Collins, contacted Nick for this very special shoot.

Simon and his album collaborator, and fellow Sound of Contact band member, Kelly Nordstrom an award winning Canadian guitarist, will be the subjects of Nicks commissioned shoot, to the wonderful backdrop of the breathtaking and magical landscape of Ireland.

Simon and Kelly have forged a notable and award winning reputation within the music business and continue to work with many mainstream music artists, including Genesis.

Simon has been busy during the lockdown period producing his latest album which has had a cathartic effect on him. The album comes from Simons experiences of personal hardship and struggle during various life changing events, including his divorce and band break up.

Nick has taken his studio team with him, including Andy Blithe, to document the Irish Tour and contribute to the fly on the wall documentary, The Story So Far, documenting Nicks life, produced and directed by Andy. The duo will also be broadcasting live podcasts.

Nick and Andy will be meeting Simon and Kelly later tonight at Simons studio and home, then it’s all off for a well deserved meal and a Guinness or two

Shooting starts tomorrow. Keep your eyes peeled for live updates on nickelliott.info

A FLOCK OF SEAGULLS

Nick & Dear Friend Jon Peach…

A fantastic turnout flocked to the Seagull Theatre, Lowestoft last week to enjoy the unique sound of Jon ‘love song loser’ Peach.

Jon was joined on stage by three other talented musicians to produce a thought provoking selection of superb alternative music with a twist of rock and a splash of the blues, shaken not stirred and served up in a chilled martini glass.

Peter Stopforth on lead/rhythm guitar, Dave Crowe on bass guitar and Paul Gillings, showcasing his superior harmonica skills, accompanied Jon to deliver a mesmerising performance crammed with original material. Jon’s enthralling and somber lyrical story telling is some of the best yet that he has produced.

Nick waits for the guy’s to get the whole sound ready for the show…

Nick was there to capture the show, that was organised and promoted by Jon. Nick embraced the opportunity to effortlessly seize the essence of the evening via his distinct images, depicting the heartfelt performance that can almost be heard through his fine art.

The Band…

Nick’s images will be added to the ever growing collection of Jon for his rockumentary project.

“First show in 2022, it was good to get back out with the gear and listen to some pucker live music.” Nick Elliott Rock Art Photographer

Q & A. PART 12…

Q1. What is the one thing that you know now that you wished you knew when you were 20 years old? (Jason D. Essex UK)

A1. It’s not wrong to be different and be your true self. (Nick Elliott)

Q2. How do you improve your photography over the years? (B Angus Lincoln UK)

A2. My photography has improved because I no longer care, because caring means conforming and I have never conformed creativity to anything in my life. (Nick Elliott)

Q3. What does producing your images mean to you? Great fan of your work. I’m looking forward to seeing your Dark Art. (D Ellis London UK)

A3. The importance of my work to me, is immeasurable really. Each image is an expression of emotions, feelings, attitudes and moods. It’s an addiction rather than a want, to produce art, and when I can’t it makes me restless. ( Nick Elliott)

Q4. What type of cameras and lenses do you use? (JD Barker Norfolk.UK.)

A4. I’ve always used a combination of Canon, Roliflex and Mamyia cameras. My lenses are Canon EF. (Nick Elliott)

Q5. Can you tell me what tools you use to post produce and edit your images? What makes you realise you have a great image? (H Graeme. Hindleveston. UK)

A5. I edit through Photoshop. I always do 2 edits, first one to chop out the shit and the second to narrow it down tighter to see if the image will work as I initially saw it. When I see the shot I normally see it in black-and-white, not all images work in colour and vice versa. The image is about a statement and style and that interpretation can get lost if not post produced correctly. It’s about a deeper understanding of shadows, light, subjects, angles and individual style.

“Although Photoshop is the tool I use to edit and post produce my images, my eyes and sense of connection with my art and surroundings, delivers the message I want to convey”. (Nick Elliott)

Thank you for all your questions. Nick loves to answer them. If you have a question for Nick please send it to benicebond@icloud.com

UN TRATTAMENTO ITALIANO

(AN ITALIAN TREAT)

Nick‘s growing Italian fan base are in for a treat next year.

Raffy Clementi heads the Nick Elliott Italian page, she helps organise opportunities within the European fine art market, liaises with Italian businesses for sponsorships and negotiates TV and radio interviews, for Nick and elliottstudios. Raffy continues to make the Italian page a resounding success with an ever increasing Nick Elliott fan base and recognition from main stream musicians and rock bands.

Raffy has organised European sales of Nick’s fine art images, interpreting negotiations between Italian clients and elliottstudios.

After discussions at elliottstudios it has been decided that ‘The Story So Far’, Nick’s documentary charting his career and life should be released in Italy, fully translated with Italian subtitles.

This allows ‘The Story So Far’ documentary, produced by award-winning director Andy Blithe of Aturn Films to reach a wider audience across Europe.

“I’m so pleased about the growth of my Italian following and the interest in my art. Italy has always been a country that appreciates art, fashion and style”. (Nick elliott)

NATTERING AND CHATTERING…

Nick has had several interview invites recently, for dissemination in various local magazines and online news publications.

The Norfolk Broads was the most delightful of locations for an interview with John Kerrison, during a warm sunny day at the waters edge. Nick discussed in great depth his latest projects and recent negotiations for his continued workload at elliottstudios. Nick revealed his future plans for the rebranding of elliottstudios, and the complex process of producing and printing his three new publications containing archived unseen images, one of the publications will accompany his USA and UK tours.

Nick also talked about his exciting new experiences of organising his UK and USA tours, the venues that have been sourced and that have accepted his show, the tours content that sees Nick appearing before an audience to discuss his unique life within the rock industry, his personal life, his childhood, his iconic rock images and his reasoning behind his photographic diversity towards his recent dark art images.

Nick also described his experience of lockdown and how his personal revaluation kept elliottstudios financially viable during one of the most difficult times for self-employed creatives.
