Everyday Carry of a Commercial Photographer from Brooklyn, New York

In this week's community feature, we have Tom (@notoriousedc), a Commercial Photographer from Brooklyn, New York. His gear reflects the on-the-go nature of his work, opting for functionality and versatility in his everyday carry. Read on for more!

Featured Tools:

Knife: Spyderco (LynchNW Titanium Delica)
Flashlight: Olight i3e EOS
Multi-tool: Leatherman Juice S2
Multi-tool Knife: Victorinox Swiss Army Knife Vagabond
Pen: Fisher Space Pen


Before shooting photography on his own, Tom was a photo assistant where he was expected to handle any situation and fix any problem on the job. Thus, his first foray into EDC gear was a Leatherman Wave. He chose this tool because of its versatility, something he needed for his work. From then on, Tom made it a habit to carry his EDC gear with him wherever he went.

Since then, he tells us that his EDC gear has changed up a bit but a few staples of remained. Now, he carries at least a knife, small Swiss Army Knife, multi-tool, pen and a flashlight. He carries his tools in a custom pocket organizer that he made for himself. Nice going Tom!

Favorite EDC Tool:

Although Tom has a fondness for all his gear, he tells us that his Leatherman is his favorite tool because it's so versatile. It can cover all the bases whenever Tom needs to travel light.
