Arthur BleichTONY BONANNO is an internationally renowned photographer based in Santa Fe, New Mexico who travels worldwide to shoot architecture, travel, documentary, corporate events, editorial and fine art photography. His clients include Johnson & Johnson, the National Park Service, Intel, the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum, Schering-Plough, HGTV, Schott AG, and the Southwestern Association for Indian Arts.

Tony has served as the official photographer for numerous political figures including former Governors Bill Richardson of New Mexico and Arnold Schwarzenegger of California. He also photographed the President of the United States and First Lady for the Intel Corporation. He is versatile and able to tackle assignments with a fresh view; more so, he is able to communicate his "seeing" process to others, such as students he teaches at the Santa Fe Photographic Workshop.

His recent editorial work includes images published in Antiques magazine, the Boston Globe, International Herald Tribune (Paris), Revolution, Red Dog Journal, Rangefinder Magazine, Horses in Art, Scuba Diving, Organic Style, Santa Fe Showcase, Santa Fe East Side, Boy's Life, Sotheby’s North by Northwest, Santa Fe Magazine, New Mexico Magazine, Photo District News, Revolution, Flight Training Magazine, Solutions - The Schott Technology Magazine, and many other publications.

His fine art work is targeted towards collectors and the corporate environment. His photography has been featured in galleries throughout the US and Mexico. He was the recipient of the prestigious Leo Diehl Award at the Creative Arts Center in Chatham, Massachusetts and has been a feature artist at the Cape Cod Museum of Natural History.

Foreign travel locations at which he has done assignments include Europe, the Caribbean, Central America, Mexico, Africa, and Australia. Though many photographers have photographed in Cuba, Tony’s work there captures the essence of the beleaguered island with a blend of blunt documentary photography mixed with compassion. His acclaimed “Hooves & Dust” series captures the beauty and rhythms of running horses so realistically you can almost taste the flying grit. Bonanno has been called “a photographer’s photographer.”

Tony has a state-of-the-art digital imaging studio in Santa Fe. He served on the Board of Directors of the New Mexico chapter of the American Society of Media Photographers from 2002 through 2010. He is a member of the Stock Artists Alliance, Editorial Photographers, the Society for Photographic Education (SPE), a Business Partner of the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum, and a member of both Canon Professional Services and Nikon Professional Services.
