Reportage Photography, Writing, Independent Magazines and Graphic Design

About & Contact



thingandwhere is the experimental playground and glorified-portfolio-come-vanity-project of Paul Mortimer, an inbound marketing manager and writer. Occasionally, some close friends also put stuff on the blog and help out with thingandwhere projects. This motley crew are: Bharat Tripathi, an architect with lovely hair; Aidan Tate, the world's most well-read semi-skilled labourer and keen walker; and Matt Tomlinson, the youngster of the group who enjoys pies and football.

Paul splits his time between working as a manager at a respected inbound marketing agency and working on various writing gigs for some regular outlets who he really digs (see below), but he'll write for pretty much anyone. Even you!

He also has a passion for independent magazines, some favourites of which can be found in the burgeoning shop. There'd be more choice on offer, but thingandwhere currently lacks the backing to carry a larger range of stock. Hint hint.

Moving on, Bharat works as part of the design team at an established architectural practice near Manchester, and takes the lead role on any thingandwhere design work. Posters and shit, mainly.

Matt works as part of the marketing team at a well known, specialist golf travel company, and is still completing his journalism degree at Leeds.

Aidan is an English Literature boss and spent the past few years exploring the world. This joke makes more sense when I tell you that he has been travelling for a couple of years and bears more than a passing resemblance for Levison Wood.

All three of these jerks need to pull their finger out and write more. They're bloody talented. Though, to be fair, they're also double busy.
