Russel Daniels has long been a SLUG staple. An incredible, versatile photographer, Daniels got his journalism degree from the University of Montana before working with the AP in Chicago and San Francisco. Daniels has been shooting for SLUG off and on for roughly 15 years, and enjoys shooting documentary projects. When he’s not taking beautiful portraits and environmental shots, Daniels works on remodeling his home, traveling around Utah and recording music with his girlfriend on a 4-track. Check out his photos in this month’s Localized and at!
