Hailing from Colorado Springs, renowned photographer Atiba Jefferson first made his way on the public scene pursuing his passion for skateboarding and photography. Acquiring a staff position at international skateboarding publication Transworld SKATEboarding early in his career, would later help Jefferson hone his craft and prepare him to launch his own skateboarding publication — The Skateboard Mag — with close friends J. Grant Britain and Dave Swift in 2004.

For our latest Essentials segment, Atiba offers us a look inside his Bravo Backpack for a gander at the daily necessities responsible for aiding one of the sharpest individuals behind a lens. Consisting of mainly utilitarian accessories, the Colorado native limits his cherished essentials to no more than what is needed to get the job done, a cameo made by the highly-coveted Leica M6 gives proof. While music is essential for many of us, Jefferson does not stop at listening, but also takes part in composing sounds with the help of the Akai Ipk 25. Jefferson’s SOL REPUBLIC headphones and earphones, coupled with his Sol Republic Speaker, are nods to his avid nightlife of DJing with twin brother Ako Jefferson under the moniker “The Blackouts.” Enjoy Jefferson’s Essentials above and stay tuned for our next installment.
