Top Photographer with Nigel Barker
Adorama, one of the world’s largest photography, video, audio, imaging and electronics retailers, announced today the launch of a brand new reality web series competition for every type of photographer: TOP PHOTOGRAPHER WITH NIGEL BARKER. Open to all photographers across the nation, from professional shooter to hobbyist to iPhoneographer, five contestants will be hand-picked by Nigel Barker himself to compete in the AdoramaTV original series, where they will be challenged to prove they have not only the skills, but the vision to become the next Top Photographer.

“We will be casting a large net across the country looking for photographers from all walks of life and interested in all types of photography,” states Nigel. “Obviously technical ability will be assessed but most importantly I will be looking for passion, drive and the illusive ‘eye’ that all top photographers have. Top Photographer is going to pit a few of the best shooters we can find from all around the country with the aim of singling out just one to win the title of Top Photographer. And in a world of photographers, that’s no small feat.”
“Technology these days is so advanced, yet so accessible, it gives everyone the ability to become a photographer and share their own unique vision with the world,” comments Lev Peker, chief marketing officer, Adorama. “But not everyone has the platform to get their work noticed. Through this competition, we hope to give all photographers out there the opportunity to let the world see what they see behind the lens. We’re very excited to see how they tackle the challenges Nigel and Adorama have created for them, and to let others tune in to the fun on AdoramaTV.”
Airing in November, the finale of TOP PHOTOGRAPHER WITH NIGEL BARKER will conclude with the final two contestants competing for the title and the grand prize, valued at $50k, which includes a photography equipment package as well as a photo exhibition event in New York City hosted by Nigel Barker, to take place after the finale airs.
