Scotland's Water : An editorial portrait of Renee Martin-Nagle

Not so long ago I was asked to shoot portraits of Renee Martin-Nagle, PHD Researcher at University of Strathclyde and specialist in transboundary aquifer governance (I know!) for American alumni magazine 'Pitt Law'. Now legal conversations make me nervous no matter what the subject, it's a genetic twitch of being Australian we are born believing the law is there to be out smarted. I was expecting a short shoot littered with polite conversation. But I hadn't banked on Renee...

Renee is a breath of fresh air happy to chat her past in aviation law and the passion she now has for the environment, not to mention her new found love for Scotland. It was a pleasure working with her. We wandered off to Roslin Glen, just outside of Edinburgh working around the River North Esk it was a great location with an adventurous lady.
