Models. Singers. Dancers. Chefs. Fashion Designers. Comedians.

And, starting tonight, you can add Photographers to the list of reality competition subjects.

Top Photographer with Nigel Barker will air on YouTube channel AdoramaTV for five straight Tuesdays at 7pm ET. Host Barker, a professional photographer himself, is better known for being a judge on the long-running America’s Next Top Model.

The first four episodes, whose length was not announced, will be followed by live-streamed Q&A sessions with the following guests:
