Veteran newspaper photographer retires from The Dallas Morning News


On May 1, people crowded the newsroom at The Dallas Morning News to say goodbye to friend and colleague, David Woo.

"I love you all," said Woo as he tried to contain his emotion. "I can't say enough how much I really enjoyed all of you."

From the crowd and the speeches, it was clear the feeling was mutual. 

Woo spent 42 years as a photographer for The Dallas Morning News.

"When I started, we were shooting film in 1976. Really, no one was doing color," said Woo, who saw technology change from film to digital during his career. "I get excited still to the day to see my name underneath a photograph."
