The 29 year old, known as Becky to her colleagues, is a former combat medical technician with 4 Armoured Medical Regiment. Currently based with the combat camera team at Army Headquarters in Andover, she also came runner-up for Best Online Image and also runner-up for her Professional Sport and Adventure Training pictures.
In a benchmark year for the event, a record number of video packages were entered and judges also had to sift through more than 700 still imagery submissions.
The results of the 16 categories were kept on close hold until the evening of the awards, which took place tonight at the National Army Museum in Chelsea.
Becky, from Beverly in east Yorkshire, was named British Army Photographer of the Year after scooping both the winner and runner-up award in the Professional Portfolio category.

Not only did she excel in numerous categories in this year’s competition, she justifiably won and was also runner-up in the most sought-after category of Professional Photographer of the Year, being the first female professional photographer to win this elite prize.Command Master Photographer, Warrant Officer Class One Daniel Harmer
