Santiago Mejia

Photographer, Baystills

San Francisco , California , United States


Hey there! I'm Santi.

I'm a New York Times journalism institute alumni and a former photo intern at the San Francisco Chronicle who now freelances with them and local media companies.

My goal is to capture the climax of a moment in an informative and visually striking image. I go 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 proud member of the National Press Photographers Association (NPPA), National Association of Hispanic Journalists (NAIH), National Association of Photoshop Professionals (NAPP), Investigative Reporters and Editors, Canon Professional Services (CPS) and the Sports Shooter community.

My photos have been published in the San Francisco Chronicle, Los Angeles Times, Houston Chronicle, Huffington Post and more.

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