Nigel Barker was born in London and educated on the English countryside, which is not really a school at all. His introduction to the fashion industry was in the mid-80s, when he appeared on The Clothes Show, a televised model search in England with a very, very cryptic title. 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. 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. All that and he is very noticeably good looking.
Nigel got his ANTM start when he was intially called in to photograph one of their Season 1 shoots. The Top Model bosses soon came to their senses and offered Nigel a more permanent role as judge.
