Everyday Carry of a Student from Palm Beach, Florida

This week, we speak to Joel (@joel_henson), a Student & Photographer from Palm Beach, Florida. His EDC is eclectic, functional, with a bit of fun on the side. Find out what his favorite gear is - it may surprise you!

Featured Tools:

Mint: Altoids
Carabiner: Camp Brand Goods
Lip Balm: Burt's Bees
Pipe: Handmade Wooden Pipe
Notebook: Word. Notebooks
Flashlight: Coleman
Camera: Zeiss Ikon Vintage Camera

Background:

Joel is a Student and Photographer currently studying music. He loves playing the drums and his guitar. Outside of music, Joel is also an explorer at heart. He tells us that he loves the ocean and adventuring out to obscure and unknown places. He has a bit of a spontaneous side and enjoys capturing his significant life moments through photography.

It's no surprise that Joel got into EDC through photography. After seeing many down-shots and flat-lays by photographers he follows, he began to do a few on his own. He also loves the sense of personalization and style that each EDC shot portrays about each individual.

Favorite EDC Tool:

When asked this question, Joel did not hesitate to tell us that it's his pipe. It was hand-carved by his roommate, personally designed for him. It's a one of a kind item that really adds a lot of character to his EDC.
