Patrick Stuart Baker was born in the city of Presidio, Texas. It is located in Presidio County, close over the Mexican border. In Spanish, the word means "fortress." His paternal grandpa was Andrew Baker, and his mother was Lilian Baker. They were one of the few white people in the town. Latinos made up more than half of the population.

Baker was fifteen years old when his father died in the year of his death. He chose to continue the excursions as an homage to his father. He obtained his first camera at the age of sixteen and started documenting the places he visited. His mother started to realize how lovely he was after showing them the images. He pursued photography as a hobby for a long time before deciding to pursue it professionally.
