A Peachy Proposal…

A hot sunny day and a burger on the beach was a welcome prelude to the two heavyweights of the music and rock photography Industry, discussing an exciting new collaboration that will continue Nick Elliott’s Rockumentary series.

As Nick’s Rockumentary projects with Earl Slick and Ed Graham draw to a close, Nick has found himself in the exciting and unique position to choose select individuals within the music industry to photographically document and continue his series of fine art photographic publications.

Great Yarmouth’s jewel in the crown, Jon Peach Is a singer songwriter who has carved an enviable and well respected career within the music industry. Writing and performing with ‘Pray for the Buffalo’ and ‘Junk Shop Poets, Jon has just completed his phenomenal solo project ‘Love Songs For Losers’, which was born out of his passion for beat poetry and storytelling love songs. The Rockumentary, taking approximately one year to capture, allows Nick to shadow Jon during shows, rehearsals, recordings and leisure time.“

“I’m really looking forward to working with Nick we are going to have a great time, do or die it’s going to be fucking fun’!

Jon Peach Singer/Songwriter.

During the production of the Rockumentary, there will be an opportunity for Nick to shoot some surprise guests that Jon will be working closely with over the next year.

“I think this project with Jon will turn out to be a fabulous body of work, plus I think we’ll have a real blast while working together over the next 12 months. Jon has a fantastic look and that is such a big part of the Rockumentary project’s that I do it’s going to make a fabulous book’!

“I’m mad for it”!!
