 To me photography has always been about telling a story by capturing a moment in time. From a BFA in photography from SUNY New Paltz to an event studio in NJ and night life paparazzo in the Hudson Valley. Falling into the theatre community has been a perfect fit in NYC. It's a world that is all about story telling and creating moments. For me it's an honor to be a part of the city's history and document these projects. 

Promotional. Rehearsal. Production

From conception to the first full production,  the stories we tell have a story of their own. Meetings, rehearsals, workshops, readings and productions of all sizes are full of amazing moments and memories that are easy to miss in the life of a project. Documenting both on and off stage, I love watching a show come  together with my lens on it.

Theater review: Crackskull Row at the Workshop Theater By Helen Shaw for TimeOut NY


"It doesn't take long to realize that not everyone in Molloy's Crackskull Row is alive—or at least, not everyone is alive right now. Generations fade into each other in a tumbledown Dublin house, and fae spirits show up to fix the wonky plumbing. Ah, but something else ain't right here either."

The Reviews Are In

Joe Barros (Bastard Jones, Cagney)

Director/Choreographer

Artistic Director, NY Theatre Barn 

“Michael has the magic touch when it comes to capturing our events and productions. His keen eye for detail, the ease and comfort he brings to our actors, and the fluidity in which he breathes life into the images of our ongoing story are just some of the qualities that make him a huge asset to the work we are doing. His photos unequivocally capture who and what we are so beautifully, transforming our marketing brand over the past four years. New York Theatre Barn has gained vital visibility and exposure because of Michael Bonasio’s extraordinary work."

Tim McCorry (Coyote)

"Michael, these are wonderful! You captured the romantic chemistry between Pedro and Bernadice and the magical power of Coyote beautifully!!!

We are very grateful!"
