“Nick ranks amongst a handful of truly gifted rock photographers…Bob Gruen, Steve Gullick, Mick Rock, Henry Diltz, Jenny Lens and Anton Corbijn comes to mind” – Gina Higgins, American Noir
Rock art photographer Nick Elliott has carved out an enviable reputation for producing powerful iconic pieces of photographic art in his own inimitable avant-garde style.
Nick had a very successful career in Editorial and Advertising photography, commissioned by top London fashion and advertising agencies including; Saatchi & Saatchi, TBWA, Yellow Hammer, O&M, Young & Rubican, GGT, Carlson Direct, MSBK and Publicis, for major above & below-the-line campaigns such as Liberal Democrats, Coca-Cola, British Telecom, British Airways, Walt Disney, Lloyds TSB Bank, Sheraton Hotels and Jaguar.
After winning several awards, Nick specialised in the music industry photographing some of the most iconic artists in the business and his images have frequently been featured on album artwork as well as being published extensively across the media for over 20 years. Nick’s work is highly respected and his images are in high demand as fine art limited edition prints having exhibited in over a dozen art galleries in the UK, Europe and USA.
In January 2013, Nick also became Director of Photography and Picture Editor at DeepRedMagazine.com, a contemporary, online, music and arts publication, a position he held until its closure in November 2016.
Nick was approached by a specialist music book publisher and released his debut book, TEN-A Decade In Images in 2011. In 2014, Nick released 50Folk, a personal celebration of 50 years of the legendary Cambridge Folk Festival and released third book, Three Weeks One Summer, documenting a project with The Marmalade in 2015. Nick has just released his fourth book Ice Cream & Sun Cream and is currently working on a series of rock art books.
His genius in the studio is only surpassed by his ability to capture the intensity of the live musical performance and Nick is driven by an incredible passion and the desire to create stunning images of the musical artists who have been his inspiration. Exposing the very essence of the performers’ inner most soul in a way that no other photographer can, Nick continues to produce contemporary collections of photographic art that will outlive time itself.
