some of the previos answers are very LONG WINDED! mate, simply: mi companero me pidio que le trajera una foto de mi... pidio is he asked me in the past indicative and trajera is to be past subjunctive. it's gotta be subjunctive cause the subject changes from you to him.

My friend asked me to bring a photo of myself to him.

Mi amigo me pidió que le llevara mi foto.

Do you want me to bring you a photo of myself?

Thank you

¿Quieres que te lleve mi foto/una foto mía'

There is nothing grammatically wrong with "una foto de ti", but a native would say "una foto tuya" instead.

Thank you all for responding, however, I'll clarify what my intentions were: I had a soccer game this Sunday, and in order to play, I need to give a photo of myselft to my friend. What I was trying to indicate was that my friend asked that I bring HIM a photo of MYSELF. I wanted to know how to say: My friend asked me to bring a photo of myself to him. and on that same subject, how would I ask him: Do you want me to bring you a photo of myself?

Thank you

Tengo un partido de futb'l este domingo, y hoy mi compañero de futból me pidi? *que le traigo una foto a mi*. Quiero saber como lo hablaria.

Estoy un poco confundido. Lo que escribiste dice: I have a football (soccer) game this Sunday, and today my teammate asked me that I bring a picture to myself. I want to know how I would say it.

I am not sure if you meant to say that he asked you to bring a picture to him, or it you asked him to bring a picture to you. It would either be "le pedí", I asked him, or "de mi", of me.

In asking how to say it I would say "Quiero saber cómo lo diría."

So, if I were asking my friend to bring a picture of themself I would say:

¿Me podrías traer una foto de ti este domingo? Could you bring me a picture of yourself this Sunday?
Fisrt of all, since it's "me pidió" I believe it should be "me trajera" (past tense).

The "a mi" obviously does not work (after le traigo/trajera) and one has to assume that "de mi" was intended but this does not resolve the issue of "who is the subject in the photo". Your suggestion involves turning what was an indirect quotation into a direct quotation (in addition to choosing one of the possible interpretations). If one retains the indirect quotation, two possibilities would be "una phota suya/mía" (or de él/mí).

One other small correction: It should say "me pidió que le traiga una foto de mí." You have to use the subjunctive here because of the verb "pedir." If you haven't learned about that yet, don't worry, I just felt like mentioning it. tongue laugh

Also... I would've said ¿Cómo se dice eso en español? to ask how to say/ask something in Spanish.
