Colin Baird is in his final year of a degree in professional photography at Gloucester University.
For his final year exhibition project he is concentrating on water towers in the UK. As a major part of this he would like to photograph the interiors as well as exteriors of towers that have been converted into living or office spaces.
In return, he can offer his images which will taken on a large format film camera.
