Top Photographer Show

Nigel Barker Took the Best Part of America's Next Top Model and Turned It Into a Brand-New Show

Despite my 5'0" height, a long-lost (and kinda embarrassing) dream of mine was to appear on America's Next Top Model — so much so that I once dragged my mom to an open casting call for a "short" season of the show. While I never made it past the first few rounds, my life and career later granted me an opportunity that was just as special: a trip to the set of Nigel Barker's new show, Top Photographer, to interview him and a few guest judges.

Just like ANTM, Nigel revealed that the show follows a handful of contestants as they compete in different challenges, which they're later judged on during elimination. Yet rather than models, Top Photographer focuses on — you guessed it! — photographers, who also get an allotted amount of time to edit their photos to perfection before submitting them. The show is sponsored by Canon, which provided the equipment, and presented by Adorama, which will air all five episodes on its YouTube channel AdoramaTV.

Walking around the dramatically lit set, I got to see every contestant's stunning photos, from a shoot they did with Olympic fencer Miles Chamley-Watson to a breathtaking landscape they took from a top-secret location. I also stayed for a portion of the very nerve-racking finale but left before the winner was announced so I wouldn't spoil it for myself. Read on for all the reasons, some of which come straight from Nigel himself, that this show is bound to be a big hit. Then stay tuned for the first episode, which airs Nov. 1.
