The 'Begin Again' singer was photographed over eight hours by Nigel Barker for a new project.

Taylor Swift has teamed up with celebrity photographer Nigel Barker for a collaboration on a brand new photo book launching this month.

The 'We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together' singer was pictured over one whole day by the America's Next Top Model star as they travelled around southern California, and the results have been collated into an extensive book called 8 Hours/Taylor Swift.

"She's not necessarily known for her sex appeal, but she is someone who is emerging in a way that I've never seen," Nigel revealed to Entertainment Weekly recently. "You'll see her transform from a young girl into this rock and roll superstar, totally in your face.

"It's unbelievable how she's changed and of course how the music is changing and evolving," he explained. "She's one to watch."

The America's Next Top Model judge also praised 'Begin Again' singer Taylor for being so professional during the photoshoot and making everything run so smoothly.

"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," Nigel added. "In one day, we managed to shoot an entire book's worth of images and multiple short films.

Last week Taylor announced her new 'Red' North American tour starting in March 2013 that will see her perform 58 dates across the country and be supported by UK singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran.

8 Hours/Taylor Swift is due to be published for a limited time from tomorrow (12th November) with a UK publication date yet to be announced.
