Legends Behind the Lens, sponsored by Nikon, is a series of interviews with sports photographers about their craft and their all-time favourite shots. For my interview, I chose to shoot elite cyclist Julian Pearson climbing the steepest roads of United Kingdom: Hardknott Pass, Wrynose Pass and Kirksme Pass in Cumbria.

A big thanks goes to the whole team: Director Phil Young, editor George Nevin, producer Fran Sharpes, Cameras Dan Magee and Harry Hall, grade – Leo Hallal at Prime & Fire / Factory Media
