Earlier in the year I photographed for the second series of Antiques Master. Here’s my original blog post which includes an embedded video showing how the Antiques Master team erected a portable studio in the beautiful Townely Hall in Burnley.
Here’s a synopsis for the first episode of the new series from the official BBC2 website:
The country’s leading amateur antiques enthusiasts battle it out to become Britain’s Antiques Master 2011 in this opening episode of the second series presented by Sandi Toksvig and featuring antiques expert Eric Knowles.
In this episode three contestants put their skill and knowledge to the test over three tough challenges at Towneley Hall in Burnley, Lancashire.
Richard Cole, a 25-year-old plasterer, specialises in Chinese ceramics; Anthony Pritchard from Hove has a love affair with English furniture and Londoner Stella Brooker collects antique dolls. But who will take that all important place in the semi-finals and move one step closer to becoming Antiques Master 2011?
Antiques Master airs on BBC2, July 4th at 8.30pm. Hope you like the photographs, it was a beautiful set to photograph.
