    Hi, Anglika
    in another post I was told that "in this photo there are me and my father" is ok, though it is more common to say....
    1)What do you think about that?
    2) if the sentence above is acceptable I don't understand what's wrong with sentence number 2
    3) I notice that your first suggestion changes the word order of my sentence number 1. is my choice not acceptable or you told me the best way to write it?
    Thanks

    A native speaker probably wouldn't begin such a sentence with "in this photograph". It's entirely possible, but it's not the way everyone would say it.
