The Story So Far…

Aturn films, owned by Andy Turner approached Nick some time ago with a proposal that was just too good to pass up. Filming has now commenced on a no holds barred documentary about Nick‘s life, his grass root beginnings and his rise to renowned rock art photographer, taking his place amongst some of the most revered photographers the world has to offer.

“I met Nick some 10 years ago through printed media, we have stayed in touch on and off since then.”

The candid documentary delves within the layers of Nick’s personality and allows viewers a sincere insight into what makes this artistic,tick both behind and in front of the lens.

“Knowing how passionate Nick was about his work I knew I needed to document his life to where he is now, warts and all, and show people how life within the art world is full of peaks and troughs”

Andy Turner (Aturn Films)

Nick talks openly about his career as a newspaper photographer, his first studio, how he took the advertising industry by storm, working within the rock art industry, his totally unique and captivating images depicting his beloved Norfolk and his slow descent into a hideously despondent private world, following several personal tragedies that have shaped his future art for good.

“ Nick made me aware of some new exciting projects he was working on that was somewhat different compare to his usual fine art rock photography“

Andy Turner (Aturn Films)

Nick chats transparently to Aturn Films and discusses life events that have brought him here today, events which have impacted on his perception of art, and his relentless passion to make a difference within the creative industry. He discusses his family, his colourful childhood tinted by his Eastend roots, his emotional frustrations within a failed marriage, and his desire to be secluded from the idiosyncrasies of modern day society.

“Nick is one of the coolest and nicest people I know, and following his story over the coming months will bring a rare insight into the mind of a creative at their best”

Filming takes place over the next few months on locations throughout the UK. Once completed, audiences will be able to immerse themselves in this enthralling documentary via Netflix, Amazon prime, and terrestrial TV.

“I feel so pleased and excited about this Aturn film documentary. It’s straight out of the desk and totally unedited. I would very much like to thank Andy for the opportunity to tell my story and look forward to creating something fantastic during our joint collaboration as it progresses”

A personal experience of loss by nick elliott

Continuing after dark side of my mind Nick has followed up with an equally thought-provoking exploration of his personal experiences of loss.

“These images are an expression of my own experiences of personal loss. They are meant to disturb you, they’re meant to shock you, they are meant to upset you that’s what loss represents.

Nick Elliott

Nick has produced a collection of powerfully hard-hitting and disturbing images depicting his personal loss. Whilst dissecting his own feelings of loss through the years, Nick has pulled on all of his resources to create a groundbreaking, self expressive and visually shocking display of loss.

These images are like nothing ever before taken by Nick Elliott. There are a total contrast to his rock art photography, which invoke many personal emotions from the artist himself.

The self representation of these images is a total step away from anything Nick has created previously, and it takes him from the viewfinder to the front of the camera.

These images will be exhibited in selected galleries around London and Europe next year.

Dark side of Nick Elliott’s mind….

9503FA56-035E-475B-9DC1-A3D72CD4014E Over the past 18 months Nick has been exploring a revolutionary art project set to take the photographic fine art world by storm, with an innovational look into the dark side of his mind.

“I’ve taken my creativity to another level. This is totally different to anything I’ve ever done before. I have developed emotionally, physically and personally, it’s kinda liberating really”

Nick Elliott

Nick has explored what makes him tick, and delved into his innermost personal thoughts to capture this innovating concept through the medium of photography, creating exquisite thought-provoking pieces of art.

Nicks images depict his extremely personal neoteric, harrowing conceptions and the restlessness of his creative mind.  Shocking but compulsive viewing.

These images are expected to be exhibited alongside his loss project in selected galleries around London and Europe next year.

IMG-20131003-00739

Last week Nick was invited for an interview with journalist Eric Secker who was looking to produce a three page feature on Nick, his life as a rock photographer, and his work, for lifestyle publication King’s Lynn Magazine.

After a very interesting chat, Nick had the opportunity to view what a lovely town King’s Lynn is source some possible locations for future shoots on the Norfolk coast.

The interview will be published in the November edition of the magazine and, of course, we’ll share it with you shortly.

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.”
