SNAPSHOT is a half-hour magazine-style show that takes the KPBS viewer on a journey around the San Diego region, on assignment with professional photographer Tim Mantoani. Tim is famous for his portraits but what he loves more than anything is meeting new and interesting people. Being a professional photographer allows Tim to access a world that most of us rarely get to see. Nearly every day he explores exciting places and interacts with amazing people.
Tim has an eye for telling a story in a single frame of film but there is so much more to every subject than just that memory captured in time. Tim is excited to share his encounters, whether it’s interviewing a visionary surf board shaper or crossing the border to Tijuana to experience the unique world of Mexican wrestling. Through Tim’s trained eye and engaging personality, we can learn more about the people and places that make the San Diego area so rich with culture.
"AP Photographer - Lenny Ignelzi" - Lenny Ignelzi has been shooting for The Associated Press as a San Diego based photographer for 40 years. In this episode, Lenny sits down with the host of SNAPSHOT, Tim Mantoani, and together they pour over pictures from Lenny's historic career.
From covering presidential visits, to historic fires, to shooting nearly every Padres game and Chargers game for the last 35 years, Lenny has been witness to some of the San Diego's most historic moments.
In addition to following Lenny on Padres home game assignment, Tim shoots a portrait of Lenny on his rare and mammoth 20x24 Polaroid Camera for his historic, Behind Photographs project. Legendary Padres closer Trevor Hoffman also weighs in on Lenny documenting his baseball career.
