From wechat api doc:

curl -F media=@test.jpg "http://file.api.wechat.com/cgi-bin/media/upload?access_token=ACCESS_TOKEN&type=TYPE"

Translate the command above to python:

import requests
url = 'http://file.api.wechat.com/cgi-bin/media/upload?access_token=ACCESS_TOKEN&type=TYPE'
files = {'media': open('test.jpg', 'rb')}
requests.post(url, files=files)
