About Me

Picture taker, music lover, blogger, metaphorical, ironic, symmetrical, dry wit, impatient, people watcher.


Desi Baytan is a portrait & lifestyle photographer, based in the Bay Area.

When I'm not taking photos, you'll find me exploring San Francisco on my bike with my dog, Oreo, in a pannier scouting for adventures and great company.


10 + years in photography industry from  food to fashion, to lifestyle to portraiture, whether in-studio or the great outdoors.

I'm equally adept in analogue and digital cameras, and use both according to the needs of the project.
