2018/19 de Boulle Magazine


JUDSON BAKER Baker has been taking pictures since he was 14. Straight out of high school, he shot his first al- bum cover, for the Denver rock band The Fluid. By 24, he had moved to Italy and was spotted by Marco Reati of L’Uomo Vogue, who commissioned a 10-page fea- ture spread for the magazine with the model Josh Holloway. He went on to shoot editorials for Arena, Details and Marie Claire mag- azines as well as campaigns for major fashion brands such as Val- entino and MaxMara. With por- traits that include Beyonce, Usher and Gwen Stefani, Baker has an impressive portfolio of celebri- ty photography, too. In 1994, he started the Art Department agen- cy in New York with agent Jordan Shipenberg. After 15 years in New York, Baker decided to move back home to Texas. Taking after his father, who was a champion bull rider and horse trainer, he now lives with his family in Dripping Springs, with cutting horses of his own.

CHANDRA NORTH Growing up, Dallas native North had aspirations of becoming a professional ballerina. In her teen years, she was also a bit rebel- lious: While her classmates would be attending practices or a school dance, she would hit up under- ground nightclubs. One day, a male model told North she should give modeling a try. He was right: North signed with the Dal- las-based Kim Dawson Agency and ultimately catapulted to the top of the industry, working for almost three decades now with renowned photographers, editors and brands. She has worked for and with Missoni, Vogue, Chanel, Shiseido, Steven Meisel, Richard Avedon, Kevyn Aucoin, Valentino, Versace, Harper’s Bazaar, Chris- tian Dior and countless others. She has walked international runways and has graced the covers of vir- tually every major fashion maga- zine. We are thrilled — and lucky — that she calls Texas and Dallas home again.

NIKI TAYLOR The south Florida native began modeling at 13 and immediately captured the heart of America — and then the world — with her girl-next-door charm and beauty. Her first cover, at 14, was Sev- enteen magazine. Her second? Vogue, at 15. In 2016, she returned to modeling, and her covers now number more than 400. Her cam- paigns have included CoverGirl, Versace, Escada, Jean Paul Gaulti- er and many more. She has been a television interviewer, launched a fragrance and started a foundation for the advancement of women in business. In an era of questionable notoriety, uncertain values and here-today-gone-tomorrow celeb- rity, Taylor continues to be rec- ognized worldwide for her grace, charm and on-camera charisma, as well as her ongoing efforts for he welfare of others.
