I am a photographer, but I am also a teacher and a guide. I have taught philosophy at university for nearly a decade, I have written books about our minds and our bodies: the philosophy I taught and wrote about is the same that makes my photography special.
Please refer to the Services tab for my Winter 2020 price list.
The technical skills and the gear of a photographer do matter when it comes to headshots, but their ability to unlock and read a person before she sits on the high stool in front of the camera is even more important: as a doctor in philosophy, human nature and all of its facets are my matter of choice – and it reflects in all of my photoshoots.
Working with Tom is fantastic! We call him for all of our photo shoots and product shoots
Tom is definitely a fantastic and talented photographer. He took some extremely beautiful pictures for our engagement portrait. He is passionate, creative, and responsible during the entire shooting. My wife and I are over satisfied for the photos. Tom also worked super quick. I can’t believe he finished editing in 2 days. I recommend Tom to whoever looking for a talented and responsible photographer. More...

Me and my husband love our wedding photos taken by Tom. He is very passionate with his work and he also makes sure that he satisfy his client like us. We are amazed. 🤩 Definitely worth it and highly recommended. Good job! More...
First of all I must start by saying that Tom went above and beyond anything that I could have imagined, that a photographer would offer to their clients.
It's the little things (attention to detail, his proffesional advise and the willingness to assist) that puts him above any other photographer I've ever worked with.
He captured our secret engagement and produced some truly stunning images! His attention to detail was superb and he helped me pull of a very special occasion that my fiance and I will never forget!
The end product was stunning, Tom captured the emotions of the moment as well as the beautiful background and turned around the photos within 24 hours! Couldn't not recommend him highly enough! More...
I'm glad I chose Portrait Philosophy for our company head shot photos. Tom was really responsive, professional and on time!

Highly recommend him! More...

Hands down. The best shoot I ever had.
He really brought so much out of me.
I felt really comfortable working with him and was able to be myself.

Tom helped me take some headshots and it was real pleasure working with him. He's very talented and will go above and beyond to get you what you're looking for.
Tom was so much fun to work with and our engagement photos are absolutely stunning. I would definitely work with him again and we will. We took our photos at the beach and he had many different ideas for poses and lighting and captured breath taking pictures that we will treasure forever. You will not be disappointed. More...
Absolutely incredible photography, super easy going to work with and very professional. I’m definitely looking forward to working together again!
Tom with Portrait Philosophy was great to work with. He actually came to my home for the photo shoot which made it very easy and comfortable for me.
The photo shoot experience was very comfortable and friendly. Tom is very creative and came up with great suggestions in terms of poses, what was appropriate for me to wear and the locations for the photographs. He took his time to make sure I was relaxed and simply myself. He captured about 200 photos which we both went through all photos and selected the ones I liked the most. It took less than 24 hours for me to receive the photos to my email address. I must also say that Portrait Philosophy's service is not only very professional but it is also very affordable.
I highly recommend Portrait Philosophy to anyone in need of a photo shoot for any occasion. More...
The best portrait photographer, he understood exactly what I was going for and followed through with a result that exceeded my expectations. Wonderful!

Working with Tom was very easy. He understood right away what I wanted and also offered ideas that turned out great. He communicates well and promptly. I recommend!!
Thank you Tom! Your talent and professionalism was beyond appreciated at our family reunion on the beach! It's not easy capturing grandparents, adults, teens, toddlers and babies, you made it look easy. We were able to enjoy and carry on with our reunion without any interruption. You were discreet and professional. You were calm and patient throughout the whole day! THANK YOU, our family will have these precious and priceless photos that you shot. We love every single one of them! You are hired for our next reunion!! More...
From the call to discuss the possibility of him shooting our family reunion at the beach, to the delivery of the photos, the whole experience was professional, detail-oriented, and high-quality.
Cell phone pics are great and all (and he'll take some for you if want yet really unnecessary) but having a pro like Tom execute his craft will give you results you'd thought were only reserved for professional models.
I highly recommend. More...
Wonderful and creative as well as professional!!!

Tommaso Bertolotti will take the time to make you look the very best. Let him guide you through your shoot and you will be happy with the outcome. If you are unsure where to find a good location to shoot at, Tom knows great places. He is professional and fast on delivering the touched up images. I can only recommend Tom to anyone looking for great pictures at a decent price. He is passionate about his craft and really cares about his clients. More...
