Does this sentence make sense?
"I don't want to be taken picture of"
I intended to mean the same thing as "I don't want to have my picture taken".

No, you should use "I don't want to be photographed" instead.

I don't want my picture taken.
I don't want to be photographed.
Please, no pictures.
Please don't take my picture.


All of those listed above would work. But, the sentence "I don't want to be taken picture of" is incorrect.

Your sentence is understandable to me, but I'm not a native speaker, so it is just my conjecture that a native speaker can understand it haha.
EDIT: Sorry I didn't read carefully, ugh. Those two sentences have totally different meanings.
