The project 50 years on the job a fine art coffee table book by Nick Elliott Rock Art Photographer has been picked up by one of the Nationals. http://www.holdthefrontpage.co.uk took the story up late last week, and here it is!
by David Sharman Published 13 Sep 2023
A photographer has postponed his planned retirement after celebrating half a century working for a regional newspaper.
David Lowndes has stated his intention to “stay on” at the Peterborough Telegraph, where he began his career as a photographic assistant and trainee photographer in September 1973.
David, pictured, revealed last year that he originally planned to retire in September 2023.
He has served as the paper’s sole photographer, on a freelance basis, since 2014.
Speaking to HTFP, he said: “I am staying on at the newspaper, maybe – if they will have me – for a couple of more years while I am fit enough.
“I started at the Peterborough Evening Telegraph in September 1973 as a photographic assistant/trainee photographer. There were seven photogs using medium format cameras and hand-processed black and white negs and prints.
“We obviously served through the best time in the industry – the seventies and eighties before new technology and mobile phones with cameras appeared.
“Years later the newspaper went ‘morning edition’ and then weekly and by 2014 the photographic department was disbanded, leaving me as the sole photographer for the paper.
“It has been a privilege to document half a century of history in Peterborough, I have enjoyed it immensely and met many people – which is why it is so difficult to hang up my camera.
“A project coming up, with the help of Rock Art photographer Nick Elliott, is to produce a pictorial book to celebrate my 50 years.
“It should be completed by the end of the year which will be followed by several exhibitions, talks and book signings to highlight Nick’s images of me and my work.”
More to come.

Who would’ve thought it!
A conversation that took place a few months ago over our regular meet up for an Indian meal in Peterborough now turned out to be a massive 12 month long project. The project will celebrate the 50th year of my dear friend, David Lowndes’ service as press photographer for the Peterborough Telegraph…
The project came about when Dave let me know that September this year he would be celebrating his 50th year working for the paper as a press photographer.
Dave and my friendship goes back that far. We work together on the Peterborough Evening Telegraph when it was the evening paper way back in the 70s, and Dave actually replaced me when I left in 1976 to pursue my present career.
I really didn’t have to give it much thought on what I’d like to do as a personal gift to Dave for his time, our friendship and his service to the world of newspapers.
We spoke briefly and decided that we would produce a fine art coffee table book documenting his 50th year on the paper and also to take the lid off the man’s personal life what a lot of people actually don’t know about
Since then the project has got a massive response we now have an agreement from Waterstones bookshop that will be carrying the book for sale this Christmas, along with a Tour Exhibition that will be visiting four venues throughout the next 12 months starting on March the 29th at the Peterborough Museum and Art Gallery, who will be hosting a Q&A along with book signing, meet and greet, plus exhibition show casing 22 images from the final publication.
We are so pleased to also welcome an exclusive sponsorship deal that will be involved in the whole project over the full 12 months.
They’ll be lots more news on the actual plans for the project as we move nearer to Christmas 2023.
I am so so excited about this project we are still in the process of shooting the images for the book but that’s expected to be done by around about late October.
It’s been totally wonderful to spend some quality time with a very dear friend and a respected colleague and we’ve had a lot of laughs on the way.
Good times indeed!!!

After it taking so long to actually make the Nick Elliott Podcasts show a reality, I’m so glad I did!
Over the past three or four months, since starting the very first show, it seems to have gained so much momentum. We have many followers and we are now well approaching the 500 download Mark! Unfortunately, sometimes it’s a case of just a lack of time, making these additions a regular event, but when I do the same and are turning out to be very successful.
Make sure you continue to listen.

Finally after nearly a 3 year break, due to the on going pandemic issues with the dreaded Covid, the last time I was in at Siren, I was making the 55th Sound and Nick’s Vision Radio Show. This last week I was invited back to the SirenFM Studios as a guest to talk about the forthcoming premiere of the documentary “Nick Elliott The Story So Far.’’
The launch of the film, with a very special VIP premiere is to be held at The Forum, Norwich on Saturday May 20th with Alex Lewzcuk being on that very exclusive guest list. He decided that we needed to have a chat live on air on his Mid Week Drive Show hosted by Alex each Wednesday Evening on the station.
We were joined by a a few special guests while tasting some hand made environmentally friendly chocolate, along with interviews and chats with a few of the regulars from around the globe.
It was great to get back into a proper studio again after such a long time. I do think that Zoom has it’s place when doing interviews over a long distance or internationally. But you just can’t beat live radio.

Nick has been developing a virtual online gallery where a selection of his fine art images can be displayed in the most initiative way and reflect the quality of his creations.
Nick has chosen seventeen previously unseen images of guitar legend Earl Slick, from his Rockumentary project that lasted several years. Nick had been documenting Slick for a new publication, crammed full of professional, onstage and candid shots of Slick. Over the duration of the project the pair have cemented their friendship and endeavour to meet up every time Slick comes to the U.K.
The virtual gallery displays a small proportion of those images of Slick in a unique 3D virtual style. Nick plans to change the images every three months to keep his visitors captivated by displaying his fine art rock images and some of his new conceptual pieces.
“I think this is a great way to display and promote my fine art. I’ve been looking to do this project for a long time and have found the perfect suitable platform, that does justice for my work.” Nick Elliott.

Nick and the elliottstudios team have been working flat out to prepare for a very special exhibition showcasing some of Nick’s most outstanding fine art images. The exhibition will include narrative from Nick, and filmed by elliottblithefilms. It will be predominantly designed for broadcasting across the USA via Nicks USA Representative to selective galleries. However the finished video can be viewed in the U.K. at a later date.
The exhibition will be recorded at an undisclosed location at the end of the month. It will display a large amount of Nick’s fine Art images, including some that have been carefully chosen from his unseen archive.
“ This is a really special exhibition experience. It allows the elliottstudios to showcase my work in a very unique way that will be kicking”. ( Nick Elliott)
As previously stated Nick’s U.K. fan base and fine art collectors, need not worry about missing out, as they will have the opportunity to see the exhibition at a slightly later date.

Slán go fóill, as they say in Ireland translates into the endearing phrase, ‘Goodbye, stay safe and see you very soon’, which is exactly what Nick and the elliottstudios team are planning for.
After a wrap was called for the very successful commissioned Irish Tour, shooting Simon Collins and his album collaborator, Kelly Nordstrom for album artwork and promo material, it’s now time for the team to head home and back into the studio where all the hard work starts.
Nick now has hours of editing and post producing over three hundred images taken on the Irish Tour. Each image can take up to an hour to post produce and bring it to the uniquely high, photographic fine art quality that is associated with Nick’s creations.
Prior to his departure, Nick and Simon discussed further collaborations, which will see Nick and the team travelling back to Ireland in the late Spring, Summer and Autumn, for further commissioned shoots for Simon’s next three albums. Simon is also keen for Nick to document an upcoming project between himself and his father, Phil Collins (lead singer and drummer for Genesis) which will take place in Phil’s hometown of Geneva, Switzerland.
“It’s been an amazing experience to work with two such talented musical geniuses and professionals. I’m looking forward to seeing the guys again and creating some more face melting art with them.” Nick Elliott.
Andy Blithe, who accompanied Nick to Ireland, took the opportunity to add more film footage to his documentary, ‘The story So Far’, chronicling the life of Nick due for release at selected cinemas and TV later this year.

As Nick’s Irish Tour draws to a successful close, it was time for a little down time to relax and enjoy the local surroundings with some of its charming characters.
Nick has been on a commissioned shoot on location in Kerry Ireland for several days. The purpose of the shoot was to supply album artwork and promo material for Simon Collins new album, out for an Autumn release in the U.K. Simon, Genesis drummer and son to Phil Collins, has been collaborating with Kelly Nordstrom, acclaimed Canadian guitarist, to produce a progressive rock album from Collins Irish studios.
Nick, has travelled to the Emerald Isle to capture some atmospheric fine art images of the duo at several prominent locations around The Republic Of Ireland. Accompanied by Andy Blithe, who is continuing Nick’s documentary of his life story, ‘The Story So Far’ and also documenting the Irish Tour, which has been hailed a resounding success by all participants.
The last day of the tour was an opportunity for everyone to to enjoy some relaxation after several hectic days shooting.
Simon Collins was keen to take Nick and the team to the local pub for some traditional Irish cuisine and beverages. Attracting the locals attention, it gave everyone the opportunity to swap some stories and even Nick swapped T- Shirts with an enthusiastic fan who recognised our world renowned photographer and Simon Collins.
Discussion’s are now taking place for a return trip for further commissioned shoots regarding Simon’s future albums that he is now working on.

Mulgrave Barrack, (Killarney National Park, County Kerry, Ireland) is Nick’s shoot location with the talented musicians Simon Collins and Kelly Nordstrom.
Mulgrave Barracks is an impressive site, and curiously has the appearance of an ancient castle ruin. The historical truth is in fact that the Mulgrave Barracks was a home built for the Royal Irish Constabulary (RIC) in the nineteenth century. Now left in ruins it has become the ideal location shoot for Nick to produce some of his unique fine art.
Rain has not dampened the spirits of anyone on the shoot, only added to the atmospheric photographic art that Nick is creating. The shoot is expected to stretch into the night, so it’s a busy day for all concerned.
The activity around the Barracks has already attracted some onlookers, and fans of Simon Collins, (Genesis drummer and son of Phil Collins) and Kelly Nordstrom (Canadian Rock Guitarist).
The finished images will be used as album artwork and promo material for Simon and Kelly’s new album which will be out for release in Autumn in the U.K.
