Hi! My name is Humberto Boncristiani and I am the founder of Humberto Boncristiani Photography (Infocus4U.com). I started this company listening to some of those little voices that came from my heart; those deep desires that we can’t really explain, you just have to do it, and I couldn’t be happier.
Let me tell your story!
When you hire a photographer, you often know the moment, feeling or emotion you want to capture. It's my job to find precisely that and tell your story with my photos. That is my obsession; to capture who you are in a shot that will last forever. I also thoroughly enjoy the opportunity to photograph people during their most cherished moments in life. I offer products for weddings, engagements, family/senior portraits, pets or other client specified photography needs. Please click here to see how it works.

I started photography at the age of 17 as I was finishing high school and needed a little money. I began as a photographer's assistant, setting up equipment, holding light modifiers, cleaning cameras and lenses, etc. I was very excited thinking about how I would use the money to keep alive my desire to become a biologist (my other passion). My efforts paid off and I got into college. While there, with no money to buy my own camera, I joined photography classes and borrowed equipment from friends to take my photographs, until I finally got my first DSLR (Pentax), which was stolen later on. A little upset (to be honest I was a lot upset!), I decided to concentrate efforts on my scientific career and use my photography skill for scientific purposes. I got my Biology Degree, then my Masters Degree, then my PhD. Yes, I love science; however, something was still missing…
During many years doing research, I had the opportunity to master digital photography skills. The ability to use photography to help answer scientific question brought my understanding about light to another level. DSLR cameras are simple when compared with the precision required to control light for an electron or confocal microscopy.
My client photography work during that time was doing weddings (as second shooter) and portraits for clients, which gave me the chance to learn how to understand people and what they want from photography. Every one is different and must be treated as such to achieve optimal results.
I soon began to realize that photography was much more than a hobby to me. It is a real passion and I always found ways to integrate it into my life. I decided that my photography deserved a place of honor in my life, and Humberto Boncristiani Photography (Infocu4U.com) was born.
I joined PPA (Professional Photographers of America) in 2013. I passed the rigorous certification test (5% of professional photographers achieve this) and today I have a very dedicated and serious team working with me. I define my style as free style, fun and adaptable to people. I prefer to shoot outside, rather than in a studio. The results from natural light, or seeing the clients in their favorite places (their home or places important to them), although technically arduous, provides me with the perfect setting to capture real passion in my storytelling photos.
