I spy with my little eye a SLUG photographer whose name appears on nearly every other page in October's issue of SLUG. We've kept David Newkirk busy shooting portraits of Sister Dottie Dixion, various studio engineers, ad images and everything in between. Newkirk started toying with photography right after high school, but only recently became serious about it over the last two years. SLUG snagged him approximately nine months ago and assigned him his first SLUG cover shoot last May. We dug it so much we let him shoot October, too. When SLUG Mag isn't consuming Newkirk's free time with last-minute assignments, he can be found skiiing, biking, drinking excessive amounts of coffee or running his own business making custom concrete countertops and furniture.
