Welcome to the Urban EDC Showcase! Each week, we feature one member of the EDC community and the gear they rely on every day. Want to be featured? Submit your gear photo.
This week, we talk to Jason (@jasonhamre) who works as a product photographer. Jason specializes in photographing knives (lucky guy) for product catalogues, and his work has probably influenced a fair share of us into adding yet another blade into our collection. Read on to find out all about Jason’s simple yet highly capable everyday carry.
My name is Jason Hamre but everyone calls me Hammer. I'm a product photographer based in Gladstone, Michigan. I specialize in e-commerce product catalogues, specifically in the knife industry for the last six years. I currently produce the in-house product photography for DLT Trading.
When I have free time I love watching movies and my hobbies revolve around photography, woodworking, and weightlifting.
I'd always been engaged in making sure I was prepared for the day, but I didn't discover the community until I was in my early 20s. I took my first EDC related photo in April, 2010 and as they say, the rest is history.
Favorite EDC Tool:
Out of all the items that I carry daily, my camera is my most favorite. Photography has always been a passion for me and pursuing that passion every day is what drives me.
Next On Your Gear Radar:
I haven't augmented my daily carry for some time, so the next gear acquisitions I'll be making will most likely be photography related, like a Nikkor 14-24mm 2.8G ED wide-angle zoom.

Feminine but not girly. Quality over quantity. That's the ethos behind Victoria's (@sh_e.d.c) carry. A musician and photographer from Orange County, California, Victoria first got into EDC after gifting her friend with a blacked out ZT, and that led to her first Spyderco Para 3 – and as they say, the rest is history. Read on for Victoria's full rig rundown, and find out what other knives she has her eye on!
