Editor In Chief – Michael Bonocore
Michael has been working in the photography industry for over 7 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 of the local communities. Bonocore began working with international non profit organizations to help bring awareness to the causes that he was passionate about. Through the workshops he leads for The Giving Lens, he has taught children the art of photography in countries such as Nicaragua, Peru, Jordan, Thailand and India. Also in Thailand, he has documented the work of elephant sanctuaries 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 Travel. You can see more of Michael’s work on his website, Instagram, and Facebook.
