"It's the ultimate backstage pass to life." That's how Cortney Kintzer describes his 30+ year journey as a TV news photojournalist. Covering the news in central Iowa for KCCI-TV, he says every day is an adventure.

   Cortney started his broadcasting career in 1975, in the newsfilm department at WHO-TV, while attending Roosevelt High School. Graduating from Iowa State University in 1981, he eventually became the station's Chief Photographer.

    In 1987 he joined the staff of KCCI-TV, and is now the station's Director of Photography. Some highlights include covering the red carpet at the Grammy Awards four years in a row, shooting an interview with President Clinton in the White House and doing countless nature photo essays.
