Photographer-Nigel Barker
He planned on continuing his studies in medicine, but Barker's mother, a former Miss Sri Lanka, entered him into a televised model search on The Clothes Show. Barker wound up being a finalist on the show, which started his modeling career. He modeled for around 10 years in London, Milan, Paris and New York. Because of his modelling, Barker's love for fashion grew, and in 1996 he decided he wanted to become a photographer. Nigel opened his own photo studio, StudioNB, in the now-fashionable Meat Packing District in Manhattan. Barker's photo credits include GQ, Interview, Lucky, People and Paper. StudioNB's advertising clients include Beefeater Gin, Sean John, Pierre Cardin, Nicole Miller, Ted Baker, Lands' End and Frederick's of Hollywood. Barker is currently a judge on Tyra Banks' reality show, America's Next Top Model. He was also an official judge for the Miss America Pageant in 2007 and also serves as executive producer for the VH1 photography-based reality contest, The Shot. Barker made a special appearance as a photographer on the third cycle of Canada's Next Top Model, and in Episode 10 of the first cycle of New Zealand's Next Top Model. Barker appeared as guest judge and photographer on the first cycle of Mexico's Next Top Model. Barker is currently working on a book on beauty which is scheduled to be published in the Fall of 2010
