SNAP is a San Diego based apparel company owned and operated by working photographers. Our goal is to bring you fun and creative apparel and accessories, inspired by our love of photography. 

Our Story

SNAP began in 2006 when photographer, Tim Mantoani, applied for the trademark for the name SNAP. At the time, there were several applicants in line with priority for the mark. Slowly, one by one, they faded away until the trademark was approved in 2013. Over the course of several years, Tim has been working with a talented group of designers and art directors to design the introductory line of products. 

We hope you enjoy our products as much as we enjoy making them. Keep Snappin'!

Self Portrait through 20x24 Wisner

A camera, like a guitar, is just a box with a hole in it. Until it is placed in the hands of a true artist, it will not make  music, only noise.
