Nick Elliott,The Story So Far….so far

Nick is delighted with the responses and interest shown in a new one hour production by Aturn films documenting his life as a rock art photographer.

Nicks stylish career choices have led him on an unusual journey of life, sprinkled with celebrities and topped with an unmistakable gift of creating art. Despite his desirable lifestyle, Nick keeps his feet firmly on the ground.

“ I believe you should never forget your roots and remember where you came from and who made you. You should never lose your head up your own arse, because no player is bigger than the club“ (Nick Elliott. Rock art photographer)

So when Rob Harvey, radio host and producer, featured ‘The story so far’ in his popular ‘TheRob Harvey DJ daily’, Nick and the Elliott Studio team were thrilled to be included in such a well respected publication.

“It was a very pleasant surprise to see the story featured in Robs DJ daily press” (Nick Elliott. Rock art photographer).

Meanwhile, ‘The story so far’ documentary continues in its production with Aturn films, owned, produced and directed by Andy Turner. Andys previous documentary The Heart of a Lion’, is scheduled to be screened at Norwich open air cinema next week, current COVID 19 guidelines permitting.

‘Nick Elliott, The Story So Far’ is scheduled to finish shooting next year. Watch this space for further updates.

The Story So Far…

Aturn films, owned by Andy Turner approached Nick some time ago with a proposal that was just too good to pass up. Filming has now commenced on a no holds barred documentary about Nick‘s life, his grass root beginnings and his rise to renowned rock art photographer, taking his place amongst some of the most revered photographers the world has to offer.

“I met Nick some 10 years ago through printed media, we have stayed in touch on and off since then.”

The candid documentary delves within the layers of Nick’s personality and allows viewers a sincere insight into what makes this artistic,tick both behind and in front of the lens.

“Knowing how passionate Nick was about his work I knew I needed to document his life to where he is now, warts and all, and show people how life within the art world is full of peaks and troughs”

Andy Turner (Aturn Films)

Nick talks openly about his career as a newspaper photographer, his first studio, how he took the advertising industry by storm, working within the rock art industry, his totally unique and captivating images depicting his beloved Norfolk and his slow descent into a hideously despondent private world, following several personal tragedies that have shaped his future art for good.

“ Nick made me aware of some new exciting projects he was working on that was somewhat different compare to his usual fine art rock photography“

Andy Turner (Aturn Films)

Nick chats transparently to Aturn Films and discusses life events that have brought him here today, events which have impacted on his perception of art, and his relentless passion to make a difference within the creative industry. He discusses his family, his colourful childhood tinted by his Eastend roots, his emotional frustrations within a failed marriage, and his desire to be secluded from the idiosyncrasies of modern day society.

“Nick is one of the coolest and nicest people I know, and following his story over the coming months will bring a rare insight into the mind of a creative at their best”

Andy Turner (Aturn Films)

Filming takes place over the next few months on locations throughout the UK. Once completed, audiences will be able to immerse themselves in this enthralling documentary via Netflix, Amazon prime, and terrestrial TV.

“I feel so pleased and excited about this Aturn film documentary. It’s straight out of the desk and totally unedited. I would very much like to thank Andy for the opportunity to tell my story and look forward to creating something fantastic during our joint collaboration as it progresses”

It’s Rock n’ Roll!

A personal experience of loss by nick elliott

Continuing after dark side of my mind Nick has followed up with an equally thought-provoking exploration of his personal experiences of loss.

“These images are an expression of my own experiences of personal loss. They are meant to disturb you, they’re meant to shock you, they are meant to upset you that’s what loss represents.

Nick Elliott

Nick has produced a collection of powerfully hard-hitting and disturbing images depicting his personal loss. Whilst dissecting his own feelings of loss through the years, Nick has pulled on all of his resources to create a groundbreaking, self expressive and visually shocking display of loss.

These images are like nothing ever before taken by Nick Elliott. There are a total contrast to his rock art photography, which invoke many personal emotions from the artist himself.

The self representation of these images is a total step away from anything Nick has created previously, and it takes him from the viewfinder to the front of the camera.

These images will be exhibited in selected galleries around London and Europe next year.

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.
