Photographer, Baystills

San Francisco , California , United States


Hey! I'm Santi.

I'm a former SF Chronicle photo intern who now freelances with them and other local publications. I'm also a New York Times institute alumni.

I strive to capture the climax of a moment in an informative and visually striking image. I head into sensitive situations with compassion and respect and I make sure the proper story is told.

"Arrive early, stay late," is my motto and I never leave a scene without strong, story telling images.

I'm a member of the National Association of Hispanic Journalists (NAIH), the National Association of Photoshop Professionals (NAPP), Canon Professional Services (CPS) and the Sports Shooter community.

Previous clients include the American Heart Association, World Journal, SF Weekly, SF Bay Guardian, Tsing Tao Daily, El Tecolote, El Pollo Supremo, Bay Area Dinner Show, San Francisco Youth Ballet Academy, City College of San Francisco and Lick-Wilmerding High School for news, portrait, sports, food, event and commercial photography.

I hope to hear from you soon to create outstanding visuals for you.
