He planned on continuing his studies in medicine,

entered him into a televised model search on The Clothes Show.

Barker wound up being a finalist on the show,
which started his modeling career.
He modeled for around 10 years in London, Milan, Paris and New York.

Because of his modeling, Barker's love for fashion grew,
and in 1996 he decided he wanted to become a photographer.
Nigel opened his own photo studio, StudioNB,
in the now-fashionable Meat Packing District in Manhattan.
