7/23/12-Something Historical–St.Louis Cardinals Through My Years by Jon SooHoo/©Los Angeles Dodgers,LLC 2012

 During my time shooting for the Los Angeles Dodgers, one of my favorite photos was of our own Vin Scully posing with St. Louis Cardinals broadcaster Jack Buck prior to Buck’s passing years ago.

In the middle of this photo is the original TJ, Terry Johnson, conducting the playing of the Budweiser Anthem from the press box at Old Busch Stadium. Sitting next to TJ was sportswriter Gordon Verrell (L)  and former Dodgers PR Exec and my former Spring Training roommate, Jay Lucas.

 I was fortunate enough to get this photo at Dodger Stadium while waiting for the anthem to be sung when the singer did it from centerfield. While out there waiting, both Mark McGwire and Eric Karros made their way to centerfield as part of their warm up. When they came to shake hands, I asked them to pose and to this day it is one of my favorite moments. I went to SC with McGwire and Mr Bruin himself went to UCLA.


This photo was taken during batting practice in the early 90’s of Tommy and Vin at Old Busch Stadium. Old Busch Stadium had a wonderful charm about it. The gorgeous arches made some wonderful designs on the turf when the sun shined through them, some really cool photos could be achieved. One of the huge drawbacks of the place was the carpet that was used instead of real grass. The heatwave during a hot afternoon would cause a lot of issues for photographers as it would cause a lot of blurry photos especially from my manual focusing lenses. I didn’t need any help with blurry photos as I could do plenty on my own.

These are just a few of my favorites involving the St.Louis Cardinals and the Los Angeles Dodgers.

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
