Nigel Barker, renowned high fashion photographer, makes his debut as a suave, expert judge on AMERICA'S NEXT TOP MODEL.

Barker was born in London and educated in the English countryside. His introduction to the fashion industry was in the mid 1980s when he appeared on "The Clothes Show," a televised model search in England. This launched his successful modeling career, which took him all over the world working for fashion giants such as Giorgio Armani, Valentino, Gaultier, Kenzo, Donna Karan and Ralph Lauren.

After a decade in front of the camera, Barker followed his dream to become a photographer and moved to the other side of the lens. By 1996, Barker had launched his own photo studio, Studio NB, in Manhattan's fashionable Meat Packing District.

Barker's work has appeared in a wide variety of publications such as Oyster, Interview, Paper Mag, (t)here, Black & White, Instinct, Forum, Angeleno and Playboy, among others. Barker's clients include Saks Fifth Avenue, Nicole Miller, Gortex and Bulgari, to list a few.

Barker has been a great help to many models over the years, carefully nurturing their careers while satisfying clients with his keen eye for casting the perfect person for each project. Because of his background, Barker brings a unique sensitivity to the relationships he forms with his subjects. He plays the role of a director, pouring his energy into coaxing out the inner beauty in every subject he shoots. Barker is the quintessential photographer, always keeping his camera ready. He wakes up in the morning and thinks about the pictures he wants to take, and goes to bed at night imagining the pictures he'll take tomorrow.
