Becky Schott

Becky is a 5-time Emmy-Award winning underwater cinematographer and photographer whose work appears on major networks including National Geographic, Discovery Channel and Smithsonian. She is Co-owner of Liquid Productions, Inc that specializes in capturing images in extreme underwater environments including caves, under ice, deep shipwrecks and wildlife.

Becky’s projects have taken her all over the world from the Arctic to Antarctic and many exciting locations in between. She documented new wreck discoveries to cave exploration, science, archeology, and organized an expedition for Seiko to dive inside a frozen Glacier in Alaska.  She’s earned a reputation for being able to bring back quality imagery from harsh conditions. 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 viewer’s imagination. She’s documented wrecks in all five Great Lakes and each year spends 6-9 weeks in different locations. She’s constantly pushing the limits and trying new techniques to capture the beauty of the underwater world. She’s been working on photogrammetry and producing 3D models of shipwrecks to showcase them to divers and non-divers.

Becky has been diving rebreathers to depths of 400ft for 17 years and uses a sidemount CCR for specific shoots. Many of her projects are in deep and challenging environments where time is short and capturing a single image can take the entire dive. She’s a frequent contributor to several magazines and her photography has been used in many books, museums, and in advertising. Becky has been actively diving for 29 years and technical diving for 25 of them. She has been an Instructor for 2 decades and is currently an active TDI Mixed Gas Rebreather Instructor. She leads expeditions all over the world to capture unique images that inspire others to explore our planet!

Becky has a degree from the University of Tampa and in her spare time, she’s participated in dozens of exploration projects around the world which earned her a place as a Fellow in the Explorers Club and in 2013 she was inducted into the Women Divers Hall of Fame.
