Becky has always been attracted to water, but her curiosity about what lay beneath the waves became an obsession from a young age. She always knew documenting the underwater world is what she wanted to do. Becky is an Emmy Award winning underwater cameraman, photographer and technical diver whose work can be seen on major networks including National Geographic, Discovery Channel, and The Travel Channel. She specializes in bringing back video from challenging aquatic environments from filming in caves, under ice, shipwrecks to sharks. Becky has over 20 years of diving experience logging thousands of hours underwater allowing her to be comfortable in a variety of environments. Filming underwater can be challenging and dangerous to divers with little experience in technical environments. Her decades of training and experience means she is comfortable, safe, and can work with a team to produce a stunning product.
As a cameraman her projects have taken her all over the globe from documenting historic wrecks in over 300 feet of water in Japan and the Great Lakes, to rappelling into caves, filming under ice in the Bering Sea and even diving cage less with Great White Sharks. She’s been the Underwater Director of Photography on documentaries for National Geographic and RED BULL shooting cave exploration and capturing these beautiful environments in 4K. Her experience working in remote locations around the world and facing the challenges of filming in extreme environments has earned her a reputation of producing quality images in challenging situations.
For 4 years Becky worked closely with Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution's Advanced Imaging and Visualization Laboratory using the latest in HD and 3D technology both above and below the surface. With them she participated in several projects with the National Park Service and NOAA. They worked on documenting famous wrecks such as the USS Monitor, the U-869 and the 2010 Titanic Expedition. She also worked on NOAA's Battle of the Atlantic Expedition and "Project Shiphunt" documenting virgin wrecks in over 300 feet of water in the Great Lakes. To Becky there is no greater honor than working on an exploration project and using her Journalism background to learn and tell stories of discovery.
Becky is extremely passionate about sharing the underwater world with others whether it’s through her imagery or teaching someone to dive. She is a SDI/TDI Technical scuba Instructor and holds certifications in cave diving, tri-mix, rescue, and several closed circuit Rebreathers.
