The totems of Salford University’s Allerton Building, and other works by William Mitchell.

"I don’t give a hoot if you don’t like them, just as long as you look at them"

If you’re a photographer or curator and would like to collaborate on a piece; if you're interested in booking me as an alternative tour guide; or if you’re neither of those things and are simply curious about places I’ve been to and would like to know more, then why not ask me a question; drop me a line; say hello…

I can also provide help with location scouting throughout Greater Manchester
