NEWS: Belator Media has moved from California to Pittsburgh, PA. Providing photography services to the Pittsburgh area with some editorial events in New York & Washington DC.

Steven Styles is a photographer and published photojournalist, specializing in event photo stories and sports photography. He lives with his family in Pittsburgh, PA. 

His passion for photography began with film in his youth, and quickly moved from a hobby into digital, professional images, sports and editorial photography. 

Steven Styles has professionally chronicled numerous commercial events through photo stories for a variety of clients: the Farm to Fork Festivals (and other events) for the Sacramento California Visitor's Bureau, events for The City of Sacramento and mayor's office, events for Chabad of Sacramento and The Jewish Federation, as well as corporate events such as a ground breaking for a Great Wolf Lodge theme park.

Steven Styles has been a credentialed sports photographer since 2016, and has photographed numerous NBA, MiLB, MLB, MiLS, AmGen, international professional teams, including basketball, baseball, marathons, soccer, cycle racing, boxing and bull-riding events: The Sacramento Kings, The LA Clippers, The Maccabi Tel Aviv BC, The San Francisco Giants, The Sacramento River Cats, Sacramento Republic FC, California International Marathon, AmGen Tour of California among others.

Steven Styles' freelance photojournalist work has covered three state governors (including being a credentialed member of the California Capitol Press Corps since 2016), covered two presidents at credentialed events, state senators, legislative sessions, political events, spot news, protests, civil unrest, an exclusive photography shoot for a news magazine featuring California governor Gavin Newsom. 

Steven Styles uses Lightroom for minimal correction but does not 'photoshop' images, and can provide out-of-camera for editorial purposes. Steven shoots raw, JPEG fine and 100% manual and prefers natural light wherever possible. 

The perfect client wants their events covered in a high-photography/ photojournalistic style... taken in real time, with natural, non-posed images that foster a genuine human connection.
