London, United Kingdom
Rock photographer Nick Elliott has carved out an enviable reputation for producing powerful iconic pieces of photographic art in his own inimitable avant-garde style.
Before focusing on the music industry, 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 being a resident exhibitor in over a dozen art galleries in the UK, Europe and USA.
Nick was approached by a specialist music book publisher to produce a series of fine art books and released his debut book, TEN-A Decade In Images featuring a collection of the artists that Nick had worked with and had captured performing over the last 10 years at the Cambridge Folk Festival, in 2011. He is currently working on a series of rock 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.
