About Me


Years ago I began freelancing for a local newspaper. My assignments varied from photographing people to events and food. My photojournalistic style of photography has imprinted itself into my photography...natural and real.  My work has been published in AAA and Style magazines, the Folsom Lake Entertainer, Roseville  and Foothills magazines and Marshall Medical's For Your Health magazine, travel brochures, dining guides, advertisements, menus, a book and other print media as well as on billboards and a food truck!

As my background is in Marketing, I photograph from a marketing perspective.

1. Capturing people really enjoying the event is a key goal, so that the following year the photos draw even more attendees. 

2. Your restaurant's unique features and dishes are highlighted in the best possible way, keeping your branding in mind.

3. The lifestyle images I capture look natural and tell stories.

I love to collaborate with you to create your unique vision.

Since I am an advocate of animal rescue (having adopted two cats and a dog from shelters), during my spare time I volunteer for animal shelters photographing cats and dogs. I can be reached at (916)804-1654 or mbelgal@yahoo.com.
