|Lockwoods New Photography Exhibition\n\nOn Wednesday 16th April starting at 6.30pm a Champagne and Canapés Reception will mark the Grand Opening of Lockwoods new Photography Exhibition by Andrew Bayles
The new exhibition showcases stunning photography from exotic locations around the world such as New Zealand, Laos, Cambodia, China, Hong Kong….and Blackpool! The exhibition also includes specially commissioned pictures of the Ripon area. Local photographer Andrew Bayles has won the Guardian Travel Photo of the Month and been featured in European and US publications.
Matthew Lockwood said, “This new exhibition builds on our recent feature in The Times as No.1 Family Run Restaurant in the UK. We are aiming to provide a great all round experience with our menu, surroundings, service and programme of events.”
Andrew trained as a graphic designer in Leeds. Last year he got married in Las Vegas and set out on a 10 month trip around the world, during which many of the photographs in the exhibition were taken. To avoid carrying a large professional camera, Andrew used a tiny Fuji Finepix Z3.
Andrew Bayles said, “The key to taking good pictures is the same as the key to good food. Keep it simple, use quality ingredients, and concentrate on presentation. Follow these rules and you can take good pictures with pretty much any camera.”
Andrew will be at Lockwoods to talk about his work. Book your table for dinner accompanied by live acoustic music.
