Hi there, I'm Tom Ortega


I’m an all around photographer, and graphic designer, a loving husband and a full time dad of one wonderful girl. We live in Brownsville, one of the most historical places of South Texas, along the shores of South Padre Island. Naturally, all my time is spent with family and friends and working on our new studio Colour Space.

The Secret To Meaningful Portraits Is To Get To Know Each Other Beforehand!

Building relationships with my clients has been a key factor in capturing meaningful and authentic portraits throughout my career. I started out as a hobbyist, but quickly gained recognition from friends and neighbors in the community who were drawn to my earthy and cinematic style of photography. As I got to know them better, I was able to capture their unique quirks and family dynamics in a more intimate way. Now, I make it a point to establish a personal connection with each of my clients before we start working together. Whether it's through in-person meetings or online calls, building trust is crucial to capturing genuine emotions and creating a relaxed atmosphere during the shoot. This is the secret to creating portraits that truly reflect the essence of each individual and their relationships.

With over a decade of experience in my field, I have developed a deep understanding of the nuances and technicalities involved in capturing stunning photographs. Over the years, I have honed my craft and built a strong foundation of skills and knowledge that allow me to deliver exceptional results for my clients.
