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.

Nick has been invited for an interview with the founder and presenter of What’s Your Story, Alex James.
Nick will be appearing on ‘What’s Your Story’ on 26th May, as he chats candidly to Alex about his life, art, and his plans for the future. The episode will be broadcast on you tube, for you all to catch up with.
Alex interviews individuals who have a story to tell which may inspire and help others. She approached Nick several months ago with a view to interviewing him about his interesting life and how his drive and passion for fine art photography could inspire others.
“I’m really looking forward to having a chat with Alex, I’ve got a lot to tell her!” Nick Elliott.

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.

Nick is still hard at it on his Irish Tour, shooting with Simon Collins and Kelly Nordstrom to create unique album artwork and promo material for Simon and Kelly’s new album, due for a autumn U.K. release.
The shoot location has moved inside to Simon’s state-of-the-art music studio near the picturesque Irish town of Kenmare, situated on the Kenmare Bay it is often referred to as the jewel in the Ring Of Kerry. The Ring Of Kerry is a popular scenic drive in Ireland’s southwest County Kerry and takes in coastal and rugged landscapes on it’s circular route.
The landscape of Ireland has proven to be a breathtaking opportunity for Nick to produce his art and source an abundance of shoot locations.
Nick has been blown away with the Irish hospitality and the magical landscape of Southern Ireland.
“This shoot is absolutely amazing, not only the wonderful locations and photographic opportunities that Ireland has to offer, but the elliottstudios team has been made so welcome by Simon, Kelly and the Collins family. We couldn’t have wished for a better trip or hosts. It’s absolutely busting!” Nick Elliott.
Back in Simon’s studio, the team had some valuable down time from shooting and a well deserved drink. Simon and Kelly, proving to be Ireland’s most fantastic host’s, took time out to present Nick and the team with some signed memorabilia for the studio.
“Time for a JD, I think.” Nick Elliott

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

Ask Nick Elliott……….anything.
Q1. Of all the things that you are involved in, what makes you the most excited? D. Penn Cornwall U.K.
A1. What makes me more excited than anything is to tick the boxes of a life long dream, which is to eventually release all the ideas and creative frustrations that have been pent up inside of me my whole life. The concepts that I have had in my head for years and to turn them into reality and make imagery from them that expresses how I felt. It’s the next chapter.
Q2. What do you do when you are not working? D. Forde Coventry U.K.
A2. I spend time with my partner, I like a good walk, watch classic British comedy, and some of the great classic Films, and I can always fit in a nap every now and again!
Q3. Out of all your projects, what was the steepest learning curve for you? A.Feliciano. Italy
A3. My Dark Art Projects have uncovered facets to me that I am still discovering about myself, so I suppose that has become my steepest learning curve. They released many pent up emotions, it felt like a personal unveiling, a liberating experience. Then taking all that emotion and actually producing art from those feelings, I found it so creative because I didn’t and still don’t care of the consequences.
Q4. If you could switch places with someone, who would it be? J.Bell NY USA
A4. David Bailey, without a doubt. He has led many lives in one lifetime and achieved so many great things.
Q5. In photography what is the most challenging image you have captured. I. Mkrtchuan. Sheffield U.K.
A5. My Dark Art was, and continues to be the most challenging of images that I have taken. Capturing my raw physical emotion in self portraits, its very difficult to bring that emotion to a visionary form that I feel portrays my message.
