Marvellous Mike

Continuing our TEN-A Decade In Images week in the run up to the Cambridge Folk Festival, here is what ‘Mr Folk’, Mike Harding, has to say about it:

A great book of photographs from one of the greatest folk festivals in the world. As a fellow photographer I am more than a little jealous of Nick’s work. His images capture the atmosphere of many, many magic moments.” Mike Harding

Classy Cara

Continuing our TEN-A Decade In Images week in the run up to the Cambridge Folk Festival, here is what the lovely Cara Dillon has to say about it:

Nick’s talent is in capturing a unique moment in every artist’s performance that takes you to the very place their music belongs. I’m very fond of his photo of me at Cambridge, I look pretty relaxed and I was surprised he managed to capture a rare moment when my eyes were open while I was singing. Very few have done the same so well.” Cara Dillon

Beautiful Bella

Continuing our TEN-A Decade In Images week in the run up to the Cambridge Folk Festival, here is what the lovely Bella Hardy has to say about it:

“Nick’s photographs capture a festival performance feeling which is so hard to put into words; it’s something primal, a feeling fuelled by adrenaline and fear and the way the crowd spurs you on.  It’s an honour to be included in his collection.” Bella Hardy

Rockabilly Richard

Continuing our TEN-A Decade In Images week in the run up to the Cambridge Folk Festival, here is what the fabulous ex-Pulp member, Richard Hawley, has to say about it:

“Proof that I do set up my own equipment! I like this picture – when all the bullshits done with, it’s good to be shown for what I am; a guitarist first and foremost. It was a real privilege to be asked to appear at Cambridge; it has a great history so it’s lovely to be a small part of that. And the audience were amazing – it was a special day for me.” Richard Hawley

Just Julie

Continuing our TEN-A Decade In Images week in the run up to the Cambridge Folk Festival, here is what the lovely Julie Fowlis has to say about it:

“This image instantly catapults me back to my younger days at Cambridge Folk Festival.  Heady days of fun, fear and the pure thrill of playing Cambridge as an artist in my own right. It brings back fond memories and I like the happy vibe that Nick has managed to capture here. It’s an honour to be included. Mo thaing dhut Nick. x” Julie Fowlis

Super Sharon

In the run up to the Cambridge Folk Festival, we thought we’d bring you a couple of images from Nick’s book Ten-A Decade In Images.

First up is the lovely Sharon Shannon:

I have had the good fortune to perform at Cambridge Festival many times since the early 90s and I have great  memories of each one. Nick’s book of photographs captures some of these memories and brings them to life once more. I am honoured to be included in such a brilliant line-up. Thanks Nick.” Sharon Shannon

Ten years in the making…and one year on!

With just a week to go until this year’s Cambridge Folk Festival, it seemed timely to celebrate Nick’s debut book TEN-A Decade In Images featuring images from the legendary event.

A year on from its launch, the book is produced by specialist rock publisher Rufus Stone Limited Editions in two versions of a hand-made, hard-backed book for collectors and lovers of Nick’s work to treasure.

Available in a standard edition of 1,000 with a choice of cover (Joan Baez or Robert Plant) and as an ultra-limited extended HARDKASES edition, limited to only 200 and individually signed by Nick himself, some copies of the books are still available.

If you’d like to purchase a copy, visit: www.rslimitededitions.com/cambridgefolkfes.html.

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.

Irish eyes are smiling

Pete Kennedy, Nick and Lee Williams

It was a sharp, cold day in London this week when Nick went on location to shoot an album cover for the enormously talented, Irish, singer songwriter, Pete Kennedy.

Pete has recently completed his latest recording in Nashville, USA, where his agent Lee Williams, arranged for him to work with some of the biggest names in country music.

Nick devised the concept for the shoot before being joined by Lee, who is also Nick’s agent in the USA, for a packed photographic session on the streets of the East End.
