Behind The Scenes at Crazy Love

To bring you a small taster of what’s in store in the second music video Nick starred in at the legendary Pinewood Studios last month, we’ve created a short editorial film to take you behind the scenes.

Nick was asked to play his rock photographer self in a scene shooting a model, played by actress Charlie Evans, and the video will promote British Country Music Association award winner Gary Curtis’ single Crazy love.

We’ll bring you the finished video when it’s released in February 2014 but, in the meantime, here is Nick in action to whet your appetite!

Penultimate Signing

Over the summer Nick was working on a project with a bit of a difference shooting a series of images for Scottish hit makers, The Marmalade.

What’s makes this a little different is that the band wanted to make their latest recording, Penultimate, a special collectors item featuring a series of Nick’s images in a limited edition triple-gate folded vinyl with a 24-page picture booklet and fine art print.

Metal in Milan

NickElliott Euro Tour

Earlier this year Nick was invited onto The Metal From Milan Show for an interview with radio host, DJ Nik.

Because of his other work commitments, Nick was unable to attend in person so the interview was done over the telephone and broadcast live.

Talking about life as a rock photographer, his role as Picture Editor with Deep Red Magazine and his forthcoming trilogy of fine art books, Nick was his usual entertaining self.

Nick’s Snap-book

flickr-logo-button-500x500Nick has been looking at producing a ‘snap-book’ of him working for some time so we’ve put together an electronic library of snaps we’ve taken of Nick over the years.

We’ll let Nick explain thoughts behind his project:

“For some time I’ve wanted to do a snap book, just a personal thing, the modern-day equivalent of the traditional photograph album.

“I was initially looking to record some reportage stuff myself but then thought it would be a good idea to include some shots from the archive that have been taken of me.

“It’s not ‘The Nick Elliott Self-Appreciation Society’, they’re just quick grabs taken on phones, compact cameras, so nothing serious really.

“It’s just a record and a bit of fun and I’m planning to update it now and again when the mood takes me.”
