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)

Q1. Who do you create your art for, yourself or the buyers market? (M. Padilla. Rome)
A1. I always create my art for myself. There are boxes for me to tick of statements, expression and attitudes that are personal to me. It’s important that I shoot what I need to, in order to feel fulfilled creatively. (Nick Elliott)
Q2. Your new series ‘2 go mad in Norfolk’ looks really good fun. When will it be available to view? (J. Glover. UK)
A2. We are hoping that it will be sometime around spring 2022. The correlation of the shows is presently in edit. If you would like to keep updated with the shows go to nickelliott.info for more details and release dates. (Nick Elliott)
Q3. How often do you workout? In your photos you look pretty fit. (J. Hale. UK)
A3. Depends when she’s in the mood!!! (Nick Elliott)
Q4. What question do you always hate to answer but get asked the most? Big fan of your work, by the way. Are you single? (Kathy Shaw. Florida )
A4. Hi Kathy, the question that I hate the most is ‘What equipment do you use?’ As I’ve said before you can use any camera and still create pieces of art. Thank you for liking my work I appreciate your support. No I’m not single , very much spoken for. (Nick Elliott)
Q5. What’s the strangest thing about you and how do you hide it, if you do? (B. Gutierrez. Italy)
A5. I suffer from OCD and yes I do work hard to keep it under wraps. (Nick Elliott)

Dead Reynolds’ new album ‘Breathe with Strangers’is just months away from it’s formal launch in September. Nick and the elliottstudios team have been fortunate enough to have received an invite from the band to help them celebrate at the much anticipated launch event and after party.
The black tie event will be an album lunch show like no other, held in the Victorian Ballroom at the Dukes Head Hotel Kings Lynn. It will be hosted by special guest Alex Baker of Kerrang Radio, who will also be spinning the decks and cracking up the rock songs for the after show party celebrations. Nick’s album artwork will feature on the band’s ‘Breathe with Strangers’ album.
“It’s always a true pleasure to work with such a wonderful group of talented musicians like ‘Dead Reynolds’. They have a totally fantastic fuck off sound.”
Nick and the team are really looking forward to the new album and helping the band celebrate it’s success. No doubt there will be some pretty awesome shots on the night of us all playing hard.
Now that lockdown has finally eased, Nick is looking forward to working closely with Dead Reynolds on their up and coming tour and their new material.
Keep checking back for the latest updates.
