Because we showcase upcoming models on the pages of Gladys, I am a fan of America's Next Top Model and have always wanted to meet Mr. Barker. It exceeded my expectations.  Getting to work with Nigel, Cristen, their children and our entire team at our New York City photo shoot was a dream come true. I was impressed to watch Nigel play both subject and photographer for our Cover shoot.

Renowned photographer Nigel Barker and his family To Appear As Gladys Magazine’s Spring 2010 Celebration Issue Cover Family
            Nigel Barker was born in London and educated in the English countryside. His introduction into the fashion industry was in the mid 1980's 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 Giorgo 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 variety of publications including Oyster, Interview, Paper Mag, Black & White, Instinct, Zink, 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.  He's brought this wealth of experience to his new book,  "Beauty Equation" which be released during the 2010 Fall Fashion Week.  He currently resides in New York with his wife, Cristen, son Jack and daughter Jasmine.
