At any time in your career it is always flattering to be nominated for a prestigious award. Being nominated for Sports Photographer of the Year at the British Press Awards this year is for me, slightly overwhelming! Only three images are chosen along with their cuttings and in 2014 my three pictures were from the only months I actually worked in 2014!

A surreal image of an athlete competing in a 'Tough Guy Challenge' taken in January, followed by a split second shot of American halfpipe superstar Shaun White crashing out at the Sochi Winter Olympics in February. And then fast forward to November as a maul of arms and bodies made up an image of England struggling against New Zealand at Twickenham. Three images in three months.

An accident in March meant I cannot recall much of 2014 hence I am somewhat overwhelmed knowing my fellow nominees have put in the hard miles from Brazil to Glasgow during 2014. And to those photographers I applaud your nominations.

Shaun White from the USA gets his first run in the final spectacularly wrong as he crashes down on the lip in the men's halfpipe event at Rosa Khutor Extreme Park, Sochi, Russia. Taken on a Canon EOS-1D X with an EF400mm f/2.8L IS II USM lens; the exposure was 1/3200sec at f/2.8, ISO 2500.
