The Dodgers’ roster has changed over the years, but Soohoo is a constant with the team, chronicling season after season as well as major sporting events in Southern California and across the United States.
“I was born here at White Memorial (hospital) in East LA and have lived in Silver Lake all my life,” Soohoo said in an interview with ABC7 at Dodger Stadium. “My dad graduated from USC. He and my mom used to take me to USC football games.”
Soohoo, a fifth-generation Chinese-American, seemed destined to be a sports photographer.
“I would go to the games, it’s like wall to wall people. How do you get there on the pitch?” he wondered. “There’s no one on the ground. There’s no media at the time, just a few cameramen. How do you get there?”
Soohoo’s love of photography began when he was a student at his father’s alma mater, USC.
He remembers his first game as a photographer for the Daily Trojan: “Walking through this big tunnel. There’s nothing more awesome than walking down that Colosseum tunnel from the street. It was just phenomenal.
Soohoo has turned her passion with the camera into a very accomplished career.
