Michael has been working in the photography industry for almost 10 years. While photographing paid assignments, from commercial ad campaigns to weddings, Bonocore realized his passion for traveling with camera in hand was too great to ignore. He started visiting locations all over the globe, documenting not only the beautiful landscapes of the countries he visited but also the lives unfolding in the local communities. Bonocore began working with international non-profit organizations to help bring awareness to the causes that he was passionate about. Bonocore has brought workshop teams to teach children the art of photography in countries such as Cuba, Nicaragua, Peru, Jordan, Tanzania, Uganda, Morocco, Thailand and India. He has documented the work of elephant sanctuaries in Thailand and he has helped bring awareness to Women’s Cooperatives in the Middle East. His passion for travel and photography has led to his new career as Travel Editor for Resource Magazine, where he founded Resource Travel, an independently run website that specializes in telling inspiring travel stories.
Michael loves photographing his home state of Idaho, showing the beautiful landscapes and scenes for clients such as Visit Idaho. He founded Boise Photo Workshops to teach others how to best capture Idaho's incredible beauty through their camera lenses.
