Becky is a 5 time Emmy-Award winning underwater cameraman and photographer whose work can be seen on major networks including National Geographic, Discovery Channel, and the Smithsonian Channel. She is co-owner of Liquid Productions, Inc, specializing in capturing images in extreme underwater environments from caves, under ice, deep shipwrecks and wildlife. Her projects have taken her all over the world from the Arctic to Antarctic and many exciting locations in between. Recently Becky organized and lead a successful expedition to be one of only a handful of people to ever dive inside a Glacier in Alaska.

Her biggest passion is shooting haunting images of shipwrecks in the Great Lakes. She combines her artistic style with powerful stories of tragedy, mystery and survival to ignite the viewers imagination. water. She’s constantly pushing the limits of technology and trying new creative techniques to capture the beauty of the underwater world. In the past few years she’s also been working on producing high quality 3D photogrammetry models which showcases shipwrecks in a new way to divers and non-divers and bring those shipwrecks to life. In March 2023 she opened an exhibit at the Wisconsin Maritime Museum showcasing 50 shipwreck images from the Great Lakes and interactive 3D models of wrecks along with video and 3D printed models.

Becky started diving in 1995 at the age of 12 and instantly knew she would do this the rest of her life. Her father passed away when she was 13 teaching her life is short and to follow her dreams. Growing up in Florida she was introduced to cave diving in the picturesque springs at 14 years old.  Learning how to shoot in little to no light, overhead environments and being task loaded was what started her passion for trying to capture images of places or animals that few people have ever seen. She became a full cave diver at 18 and a NAUI Instructor #35708 that same year. She taught recreational scuba through college while also expanding her technical diving education by doing trimix and diving deeper into caves in the following years. She began her journey into rebreathers in 2007 and began teaching CCR and technical diving in 2013 throughTDI. Today she is a mixed gas Rebreather Instructor teaching on two units.

One of her biggest passions is diving & documenting shipwrecks in North Americas Great Lakes.  She’s filmed ships in 1-100 meters of water in each of the five Great Lakes. She’s worked with the National Park Service filming shipwrecks in 3D in Isle Royale National Park and worked on exploration projects searching for new wrecks in Lake Huron and Lake Michigan. In 2011 she was worked with NOAA, WHOI & SONY on a documentary called “Project Shiphunt” searching for shipwrecks. They found the Schooner M.F. MERRICK lost in 1889 and ETURA in over 95m of icy cold water off Presque Isle Michigan. In June of 2015 Becky was part of the first team of divers to document the ALICE E. WILDS found by Shipwreck Explorers in Milwaukee Michigan in 100m. The team was the first to lay eyes on the shipwreck in over a century! She was also one of the first divers to help document and do the first photogrammetry model of the Agustus Handy discovered near Cheboygan Michigan in 2021. Becky’s passion for the Great Lakes has only grown fiercer over the years and visiting more sites and capturing hauntingly beautiful imagery on these historical wrecks is one of her favorite locations in the world. Her images have been featured in dozens of magazine articles both in the USA and internationally. She thrives on the challenges and is driven by always experimenting with creative techniques to tell a story and have eye catching images.

Becky has also participated in several other expeditions to explore virgin wrecks in a remote area of Japan, and documenting deep sea mounts off the coast of Brazil with scientists. She filmed the exploration of Weeki Wachee Cave system in 2009, and participated in the Phantom Springs Cave Project in Texas in 2012. Her background in cave diving has led to underwater Director of Photography jobs shooting in 6K for RED BULL, National Geographic, and BBC. Her extensive diving experience in a variety of environments has earned a reputation for being able to safely capture footage in challenging underwater locations and work with teams.

Becky has a degree in Communications from the University of Tampa and started her career in Broadcast news covering everything from the Presidential election in 2008 to major hurricanes. That photojournalism background has stayed with her and she actively writes for over 8 magazines and has the covers of many of them each year. Her images have also been used in Museums, ads, billboards, several books and educational materials. She is currently a “Friend of the Brand” for Seiko Watches and appears in many of their ad campaigns and commercials.

Becky feels fortunate she’s been able to combine her two passions in life of diving and photography.  She’s been actively diving for 29 years, 24 of which have been technical diving. Becky is on the US Antarctic Program’s Scientific Diving Control Board She is a Fellow in the Explorers Club and in 2013 she was inducted into the Women Divers Hall of Fame. She leads expeditions all over the world to capture unique images that inspire others to explore our planet!
