Nick has started to develop his own personal podcast, for release in the next few weeks.
As Nick has become increasingly in demand over the last few years. His unseen rock images are now being distributed amongst galleries, his controversial Dark Art Projects are causing a stir with fine art collectors, London exhibitions are being organised, and several commissioned projects with high profile music artists, are only a select few of the commitments that Nick and the elliottstudios team are in the process of organising.
With such a hectic calendar, Nick finds there are a lot of topics to talk about. Nick’s personal podcast will include broadcasts from location shoots, his travels, current projects, personal opinions and views on anything that this outspoken rock art photographer wants to discuss.
Sometimes controversial, but still full of the humour, this personal podcast is well worth a listen to catch up with everything that is Nick Elliott.
“ I can’t wait to start getting these podcasts released, I’ll talk about anything and you can keep up with what me and the team are up to.” Nick Elliott.

Several weeks ago Nick was commissioned by the heavy rock band Unholy Alliance, for a rather special shoot at the disused airbase, RAF Sculthorpe in Norfolk.
The talented and well respected band have been together for four years and have been rocking audiences around the U.K with their energetic performances. A USA tour is on the cards for September this year which is generating much excitement amongst their overseas fan base.
Ady Bailey’s, distinct lead locals heads up the band, with Nick Jackson-Wynch on lead guitar and support vocals, Richard Griswell, drummer and Michael Tatler, bass guitar. Rising from the ashes of the bands past association with English Dogs, Unholy Alliance continues to demonstrate their creative superiority with original compositions, angry, demonstrative vocals and impressive musical abilities. Unholy Alliance have already notched up two successful albums and continue to go from strength to strength in the music industry.
The band arrived at the bitterly cold, shoot location after a long drive from the North of England. After a brief wardrobe change, it was down to business. Nick seized the opportunity to create some adventurous and unique shots of the band that epitomises their music.
“Sculthorpe is a great location and opportunity to shoot some really exciting images of the band. It’s got a lot of atmosphere and unique hidden corners to get something really face melting for the guys.” Nick Elliott
The shoot went onto the evening time, and Nick continued to shoot with the use of all available light, a technique which he is well know for in his creative fine art.
Once a wrap was called, Nick, the elliottstudios team and the band all went for a well deserved and very tasty meal at one of Nick’s favourite restaurants.
“It was great to work with Unholy Alliance, they are a top bunch of guys. Let’s do it again sometime.” Nick Elliott

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.

After arriving in the beautiful Republic of Ireland yesterday for a commissioned shoot with the talented musicians, Simon Collins and Kelly Nordstrom, it was an early call time for Nick today.
After checking the location of the shoot yesterday evening, it was time to prep the photographic equipment this morning, in readiness for this much anticipated shoot.
But first, Simon Collins, son of Phil Collins introduced Nick to the Collins family before a truly welcoming Irish Breakfast to start the day off in style.
“Myself and the elliottstudios team could not have had a better welcome from Simon, his family and Kelly. Our accommodation is top drawer and I’m blown away with how kind everyone is here. After getting here we went to meet the guys at Simon’s studio and had a pretty pucker meal afterwards.” Nick Elliott
Andy Blithe is also accompanying Nick in Ireland to continue ‘The Story So Far” documentary, chronicling Nick’s life story and his unique talent for producing photographic fine art of mainstream musicians within the music industry.
“I’ve pre recced several additional locations this morning. The original location is stunning but the surrounding area is fantastic with so many other photographic opportunities that we are spoilt for choice. It’s absolutely wonderful. The weather is squally, but it will add to the atmospheric images that I’ve story boarded for the shoot. Definitely going to get a few face melting shots today”. Nick Elliott

Nick has packed his bag and is headed to the Emerald Isle today as his Irish Tour kicks off to a rather frisky start at Luton Airport.
Staff at Luton Airport took such a shine to Nick and his unique attire that they insisted that he take it all off going through customs, much to the amusement of the elliottstudios team.
Nick is being commissioned by Simon Collins to shoot his new album artwork and promo material at various locations around the Republic Of Ireland near the musicians hometown. Simon, the British-Canadian drummer and lead vocalist of the talented rock band Sound of Contact and son of Genesis drummer and singer Phil Collins, contacted Nick for this very special shoot.
Simon and his album collaborator, and fellow Sound of Contact band member, Kelly Nordstrom an award winning Canadian guitarist, will be the subjects of Nicks commissioned shoot, to the wonderful backdrop of the breathtaking and magical landscape of Ireland.
Simon and Kelly have forged a notable and award winning reputation within the music business and continue to work with many mainstream music artists, including Genesis.
Simon has been busy during the lockdown period producing his latest album which has had a cathartic effect on him. The album comes from Simons experiences of personal hardship and struggle during various life changing events, including his divorce and band break up.
Nick has taken his studio team with him, including Andy Blithe, to document the Irish Tour and contribute to the fly on the wall documentary, The Story So Far, documenting Nicks life, produced and directed by Andy. The duo will also be broadcasting live podcasts.
Nick and Andy will be meeting Simon and Kelly later tonight at Simons studio and home, then it’s all off for a well deserved meal and a Guinness or two
Shooting starts tomorrow. Keep your eyes peeled for live updates on nickelliott.info
