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.

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

1/26/12-Something Historical—Late 1980’s-Vin Scully Interviews Tommy Lasorda at the Old Busch Stadium

Vin Scully interviews Tommy Lasorda at the old Busch Stadium in St. Louis during the late 80’s. Boyd Robertson oversees the interview as he still does for Vin.  The old stadium was one of the prettiest to photograph with those archways at the top. Late day shadows made some gorgeous designs on the field. It was also one of the hottest off that carpet when we visited usually in June or July.     © Jon SooHoo/Los Angeles Dodgers
