A collection of award-winning photographs of army life have been released by the Ministry of Defence.
The pictures, which appeared in the annual Army Photographic Competition, were taken by professional and amateur soldier photographers.
ITV News' Nina Nannar met some of the soldier photographers:
The shots show troops in frontline action in Afghanistan, training in the UK and taking part in both sport and parades.
The overall winning picture (below), shows soldiers climbing on board an aircraft at the end of a mission in Afghanistan.
The photograph was taken by Sergeant Mark Nesbit, 40, from Leeds, who said:
Having spent most of the last 12 months working with video, my stills portfolio isn't as extensive as I would like but my camera and 50mm manual lens went everywhere with me looking for the opportunist shot. I am very happy to have been recognised for my photographic work.
Other pictures include colleagues of Captain Heather Stanning celebrate as she won rowing gold in the London 2012 Olympics.
The winners were invited to a special award's ceremony at the Imperial War Museum in London.
