Nigel Barker Captures ’8 Hours’ of Taylor Swift for Sony

By  November 09, 2012

There are many sides to Taylor Swift, and in her new collaboration with Sony and photographer and television personality Nigel Barker , we get to see three of them: every-day casual, Hollywood glamour, and performer-chic. In 8 Hours/Taylor Swift, Barker captures the platinum-selling crooner on location in sunny Southern California for — you guessed it — eight hours. “Photographing one of the most famous pop icons of our time could have been a challenge, but working with Taylor was like a dream sequence,” said Barker, who added that “you daren’t put your camera down for a moment for even when she’s exiting the stage it’s iconic…”


Created especially for the Taylor Swift aficionado, the coffee table tome was edited down to 60 pages to comprise the star’s most extensive photo collection to date, with a few short films to spare. And there’s only one way to get it. Sony customers who purchase a Alpha DSLR or NEX camera from one of the brand’s 37 stores will receive their copy of the Sony ambassador collaboration. For those looking for a personalized copy, place a bid at Sony’s eBay auction site for a chance to win one of 10 signed copies from Barker and Swift, with all proceeds going to the Boys & Girls Clubs of America.
