So you have this story, or you know someone who does -- perhaps a parent or grandparent. And maybe you already know parts of the story, or maybe you just know there's a story in there that needs coaxing out. That's my job.

The process is really quite simple. I interview and photograph people in the comfort of their own homes. I set up a camera and tripod, position a bounce flash, and take candid portraits while we talk. From a 30 - 60 minute recorded conversation I transcribe and edit a story of typically 300 - 500 words. I then assist in selecting a portrait to combine with the story.  The components are matted and framed.  



I would highly recommend and urge others to work with Craig Bohanan. My family and I are still overjoyed with the beautiful personal history piece he did on my beloved ninety-four year old grandmother. Craig has a true gift with his ability to find the right story to tell about another. He listened intently to my grandmother’s tales and chose just the right story to record for all of us. His carefully crafted words perfectly captured her personality - her bravery, sense of humor, humility, and love of adventure. The final piece he created of her story and his beautiful photos truly brought tears to our eyes. His work will be cherished in our family for many generations.
