Acclaimed 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. He’s shot everyone from Alice Cooper to ZZ Top for over 20 years.
Nick has photographed some of the most well known artists in the music business—and not just rock. He’s also photographed artists like Emmylou Harris, Beth Nielson Chapman, and the Quebe Sisters Band. Rock, Pop, Americana, Blues…it has all been seen through the lens of Nick Elliott; and his images have frequently been featured on album artwork, as well as being published extensively across the media.
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.
Now, Nick is looking to capture more of America’s music through his lens. “Over the years, I’ve been privileged to work with some of the greatest country and country/rock artists on the planet, from Joan Baez and Emmylou Harris to Steve Earle and Rosanne Cash,” says Nick, from his home in England.
Nick has worked with the biggest names in music, but what artist would Nick Elliott most like to photograph in Nashville? “It would be great to work with an artist like Alison Krauss – I shot Robert Plant a while ago and really loved the stuff they did together.”
Currently working on a series of rock books, in Spring 2011 Nick released an official, limited edition book of the last decade of the Cambridge Folk Festival, featuring fine art images of artists performing at the famous festival over the years.
Exposing the very essence of the performers’ innermost soul in a way that no other photographer can, Nick continues to produce contemporary collections of photographic art that will outlive time itself.
“I’m very excited to introduce my style of contemporary rock photography to more artists in Nashville, and am looking forward to working with artists who want to bring in something a little ‘rawer’ to their image.”
