Does My Kit Fit? David Wren on tour with O’Neill Wetsuits UK

Posted on Updated on

We first met David Wren while he was working with one of our Think Tank Photo retailers, London Camera Exchange, in Guildford. We met up with him at the start of his summer tour with O’Neill Wetsuits UK & Butta as their official photographer.

“Travelling around the UK with the UK O’Neill wetsuits team and Butta for their summer tour #busvibes is great. The tour is sponsored by Olympus and we are visiting different surf spots and sponsoring surfing events across the UK throughout the summer, which is great fun!

Here, the boys from the band Sunset Sons treated us to a gig on the bus deck and we held a wicked SUP race, where the winner took home an O’Neill wetsuit.

There are six of us on the bus with all our gear, working & sleeping in close quarters! So, we have to be selective about our gear as there is not a lot of space. Everything I have with me I need, and nothing that doesn’t get used.”

Here’s David’s Camera & Video Gear which he fits in the Think Tank Photo Airport International v2 roller:

David also uses these Think Tank Photo accessories to keep all his accessories tidy and quickly findable:

Olympus are Sponsoring our summer 2015 O’Neill Wetsuits UK tour, which has given me the chance to play around with the fully waterproof & shock prove Olympus Tough TG-4. It’s remarkably good for something so small compact, with fast focusing & frame rates in the water. I can shoot in raw and 1080p HD video with the TG4 and the quality is extremely high for the sensor size, which has definitely exceeded my expectations!”

Passenger clothing is sponsoring me and I’m enjoying getting to surf as often as possible on the tour and the picturesque sunsets from our wooden shack !!”

David has just got the Think Tank Photo Retrospective 30 canvas shoulder bag for when he needs to take a little less gear out and about with him, so we’ll see how he’s getting on with this later in the summer…
