I’m Chezaray – aka Cesare Bonazza. I thought my name might be easier to pronounce correctly if I spelled it phonetically.
Guilty as charged and yes, I am Italian! So naturally food, wine, romance and travel are always on my mind. I can really get into cooking a simple tomato and basil pasta dish for friends and family on a lazy summer afternoon.
As a photographer I have had the awesome gift and golden opportunity to be able to travel my whole life – for those of you with the same privilege, you know the world is a beautifully exotic, magical place and I love sharing my culmination of my experiences and the many images that I have collected along the way.
I photograph people - young, famous, happy, chic, tall, serious, short, quiet, fun...well, you get the point. It's the only real job I have ever had and after 30 years with a camera in my hand I wouldn't, no I couldn't dream of doing anything else.
I also love this country and am honored to be able to live here – loving my wife, my two daughters and my four dogs and enjoying the friendship of those I have met along the way.
Thanks for stopping in for a visit and please don’t go away without making a connection, I would love to hear from you. Go ahead and like my Facebook page, follow me on Instagram, connect with me on Linkedin, shoot me an Email or send me a Tweet – it doesn’t really matter how you do it, just do it!
