Testimonials

Gina Higgins (American Noir)

"As a traditionalist, Nick ranks amongst a handful of truly gifted rock photographers…Bob Gruen, Steve Gullick, Mick Rock, Henry Diltz, Jenny Lens and Anton Corbijn come to mind - all original in their own ways, but each with a keen awareness that in addition to natural born talent, in order to stand above average, to be noticed, to be great, to be an ‘artist’ as opposed to a ‘craftsman,’ there is one essential quality that will always separate the ordinary from the extraordinary....Passion." - Gina Higgins, American Noir

"To work with Nick has been an absolute pleasure and he brings a total visual concept and imagery sympathetic to his subject matter with an ease and understanding second to none. He has an eye for detail I have never experienced before and is articulate and professional every step of the way, turning a vision into a reality. His live work is simply stunning and I am proud to have been on the other side of his camera. If there's a secret…it belongs to Nick!" - Sandy Newman

"Nick's talent is in capturing a unique moment in every artist's performance that takes you to the very place their music belongs. I was surprised he managed to capture a rare moment when my eyes were open while I was singing. Very few have done the same so well." - Cara Dillon

"Nick can't half take a decent pic...we soon invited him back to the Corn Exchange to snap Def Leppard. To use some of his own cockney talk - he's a diamond geezer...who takes a mean photo!" - Neil Jones

"Sound and Nick's Vision is more than a radio show. More than a podcast. More than a journey into the musical inspiration of one of the nation's premier photographers. Quite simply it’s an audio driven, life-changing, musically fulfilling, pot-pourri of perfection!" - Alex Anthony-Lewczuk, Founder Siren 107.3FM

"We've thoroughly enjoyed having Nick Elliott as a guest on Endeavour. There aren't many people with stories of having been there, done that, worn the t-shirt - or in this case taken the photo! We always strive to create the best output we possibly can and work with people to that end goal. Often it gels together at both ends and becomes something far greater than you could've imagined. This was one of those occasions. We can't wait to work with Nick and his team again in the future." - Dylan Taylor, Director/Station Manager, Endeavour Radio FM
