The world knows him best as the dashing photographer and judge on America's Next Top Model. But Nigel Barker doesn't just play a photographer on TV. He is indeed a real photographer, and an ambitious one at that. On the following pages we present an unusual fashion feature that Barker conceived and photographed exclusively for American Photo. We also take a close look at a unique career Nigel Barker with Amanda from Photogenics and Melissa Keller from Q Models.

The photography industry will suck you in, and you'll want every little gizmo, and I had to teach myself that what matters isn't the cameras you have but your ability to use what you have. Trust me, you can take great pictures with a pinhole camera or a point-and-shoot with a built-in flash. Terry Richardson does it, and of course he makes a forture at it. You might not like his pictures, but some people think he's great, and so does he. Available exclusively at adorama.com Available...

The Celebrated Celebrity Stylist

In this era of tabloid magazines, where every moment of a star's life is a potential photo op, a new personality has gained unprecedented power the celebrity stylist. Stars are a pretty insecure lot, says Renata Espinosa, New York editor at Fashion Wire Daily. Because they're photographed more now than ever before, they feel they need the help of a stylist to ensure they're not on anyone's 'worst dressed' list. The stylist's role has always been important a trusted expert who reassures the star and helps designers and photographers conceive and achieve their concepts. But as the demand for images of celebrities being themselves has increased, so too has the stylist's influence. Robert Verdi, personal stylist to Eva Longoria Parker, has a show on the Style Network called Fashion Police, where celebs are critiqued on their looks.

History Of Fashion Imagery By Jeanjacques Naudet

Guy Bourdin 1975

Fashion photographers are tastemakers and workhorses, artists and salesmen. Their imagery reflects the culture they work in, but there is no denying their influence in shaping culture as well. When the first illustrated fashion magazines emerged in the 1890s, the ideals of fashion rested squarely with an aristocracy of style. In a large sense, the beginning of fashion photography and its profound cultural impact can be traced back to the 1920s, when a pioneering The 1940s brought war and the...
