Nick’s new book “From nothing to Kings Lynn in 30 days“ is hot off the press from elliottstudios publishing.

The project took just two months for Nick to complete and the result is another fine art publication triumph.

“ It was a total pleasure doing a one off project like this, it took me right back to my days of motorsport and reminded me very much of my own racing days.”

Q & A. PART 12…

Q1. What is the one thing that you know now that you wished you knew when you were 20 years old? (Jason D. Essex UK)

A1. It’s not wrong to be different and be your true self. (Nick Elliott)

Q2. How do you improve your photography over the years? (B Angus Lincoln UK)

A2. My photography has improved because I no longer care, because caring means conforming and I have never conformed creativity to anything in my life. (Nick Elliott)

Q3. What does producing your images mean to you? Great fan of your work. I’m looking forward to seeing your Dark Art. (D Ellis London UK)

A3. The importance of my work to me, is immeasurable really. Each image is an expression of emotions, feelings, attitudes and moods. It’s an addiction rather than a want, to produce art, and when I can’t it makes me restless. ( Nick Elliott)

Q4. What type of cameras and lenses do you use? (JD Barker Norfolk.UK.)

A4. I’ve always used a combination of Canon, Roliflex and Mamyia cameras. My lenses are Canon EF. (Nick Elliott)

Q5. Can you tell me what tools you use to post produce and edit your images? What makes you realise you have a great image? (H Graeme. Hindleveston. UK)

A5. I edit through Photoshop. I always do 2 edits, first one to chop out the shit and the second to narrow it down tighter to see if the image will work as I initially saw it. When I see the shot I normally see it in black-and-white, not all images work in colour and vice versa. The image is about a statement and style and that interpretation can get lost if not post produced correctly. It’s about a deeper understanding of shadows, light, subjects, angles and individual style.

“Although Photoshop is the tool I use to edit and post produce my images, my eyes and sense of connection with my art and surroundings, delivers the message I want to convey”. (Nick Elliott)

MEMORIES ARE MADE OF THIS

Rock art photographer Nick Elliott and Andy Blithe, CEO, director and producer of Aturn Films, took a trip back to Nick’s hometown of Peterborough to continue the filming of ‘The Story So Far’, a documentary based on the unique life of Nick.

The emotional visit started at Nick’s family home in Stanground. Once noticing filming taking place , the owners of the property kindly invited Nick inside to walk the familiar floorboards and stand in his childhood bedroom where all his dreams of photography began. Outside Nick was thrilled to meet his old next door neighbours who still reside there and have seen many changes to the street.

Filming continued at Nick’s Secondary School, the Stanground Academy. It was here that Nick met up with fellow photographer and old friend, David Lowndes. The pair had lots to reminisce about from their editorial photography days when they worked side by side at East Midlands Allied Press. David did a photo shoot to accompany Nick’s interview for the local publications, ‘Peterborough Today’ and ‘Peterborough Telegraph’. Nick was honoured to be invited back to visit the Stanground Academy in the near future to deliver an inspirational lecture to its students.

No trip down memory lane would be complete for Nick, without visiting the Peterborough Lido, Peterborough’s historical open air swimming pool. Although the pool itself was closed to the public, Vivacity kindly organised for Nick to enjoy a private visit. Nick was an expert swimmer, and was even considered to represent the UK in the 1972 Munich Olympics. His swim training and abilities all started at the Lido under the watchful eye of his dad and several professional coaches.

The last stop of the day was a visit to the East Midlands Allied Press building, where Nick’s career began as a editorial photographer for the local newspapers and magazines.

It was a successful day of shooting ‘The Story So Far’. Many thanks to Nick’s PA, the capable Annie Brookes for her organisational skills to make this day a triumph. Listen to Nick talk in greater depth about this exciting and sentimental day in upcoming posts.
