Photographing Sarah Donohue, a James Bond stunt women

Recently I had the pleasure of doing a photoshoot with Sarah Donohue.

Although you may not know the name, the chances are you've seen her.

If you remember the scene at the start of the James Bond film, "The World is Not Enough".  There is a boat chase down the River Thames that ends at the then Millennium Dome (now O2).   Sarah is driving one of the boats and is the stunt double for actress Maria Grazia Cucinotta.

Extracting a little bit from her bio, "Sarah holds the titles of European U.I.M Powerboat Champion and A.P.B.A American National Powerboat Champion as well as being the World's most accredited Female Powerboat Champion."

All rather impressive really, and as such I think she's my most famous subject to date.
