When I ran across these medium format chromes that I took with my Pentax 67 a long time ago, I couldn’t pass up sharing these today since I can count on some grief from them about publishing them here.

3/22/12-Something Historical–Team Travel Early 2000s with Leica M6-Photography by Jon SooHoo/Los Angeles Dodgers

I bought my first Leica in 2000…an M6 with 35/2 lens and shot behind the scenes in black and white film. Between the lines is only so interesting photographically that I wanted something else. Given my access by the organization, I felt it important that I record Dodgers life off the field as well. I learned this by watching my friend Michael Zagaris, team photographer of the San Francisco 49ers and Oakland A’s and all of his behind the scenes black and white images of the 49ers during the Joe Montana, Jerry Rice era. Baseball is such a long season and anything I can do the capture the organization in a different light I will.

And these two have been traveling together for a long, long time. Vin Scully sits next to retired team traveling secretary Billy Delury in Pittsburgh 2001. © Jon SooHoo/Los Angeles Dodgers

As much fun as it is to photograph our players on the field, I find as much joy in shooting everyone else along the way since it is a history of humans I want to record. These behind the scenes will continue as long as I am allowed to.

With tremendous regret I have moved on from the film Leica M6 to the digital Leica M9. To keep up with the hungry needs of our impatient society who crave immediate viewing of everything through social media, I can no longer have film sit in the can until I return from road trip. I hope to return to shooting black and white film someday….but not really. I wouldn’t know how to shoot a camera without being able to look at the back of it for review.  JS

2/4/12-Something Historical–1988 Informal Reunion in Oakland-July, 2001

Interleague play brought us to Oakland in 2001 where I was able to get this group shot of members of the 1988 World Champions.

In it are John Shelby (L to R), Jesse Orosco, Mike Davis, Manny Mota and equipment man Super Dave Wright.

Whenever I can, I try to get members I run into along the way to get in these group shots.

It is my goal to get a reunion together of the entire 1988 team someday.  Center fielder John Shelby said it is time to do something. He said “Even my minor league championship team had a 10 year reunion”.    © Jon SooHoo/Los Angeles Dodgers
