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

Earl Slick and the founder member of the Sex Pistols, Glen Matlock throughout the summer have been playing to packed venues across the UK as they continue their tour together.
Nick caught up with them towards the end of May at the Waterfront in Norwich picking it up halfway through the tour. Not one more punter could be squeezed into the venue. And The Philistine‘s performed effortlessly to a cheering crowd.
Nick was invited by Earl to do what he does best and shot the whole show, these images will be released sometime next year in a very special picture book project that the two have been working on for the past four years.
Some well known faces in the crowd included Dave Donley and the wonderful Jess Smith, who was Earls guitar tech on the night.

“It’s always a pleasure to catch up with friends that are such iconic legends in the music business. They have had such a massive impact on mine and other peoples lives over so many years.
