Nigel Barker is a judge on The CW's "America's Next Top Model" (ANTM). He also hosts the Oxygen reality competition series "The Face."

Nigel 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 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, he 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, including GQ, Town & Country, Seventeen, Oyster, Interview, Paper Mag, (t)here, 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. His photo credits also include Lucky, Tatler, Cover, Ted Baker, Lands' End, Nine West, Lexus, Leviev, Jordache, Beefeater, Pamella Roland, Ford and Sony.

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, he 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.

On the big screen, Barker recently appeared in the movie comedy "Arthur," alongside Russell Brand, Helen Mirren, Jennifer Garner and Greta Gerwig, as a photographer.

Additionally, Barker is involved with the USO and is a celebrity ambassador for the Make-A-Wish Foundation, the Do Something organization, the United Nations Foundation and Fashion Targets Breast Cancer.

Barker currently resides in New York with his wife, Cristen.
