Travel Essentials: Adam Johnson

In the past year alone, Vibralux Denim has released more stunning video profiles on their all-star team than arguably any other brand in the business.Through the lens of media guru Adam Johnson, the blade world has witnessed Brian Freeman’s breakthrough section, Alex Broskow’s smooth sailing through the streets of NYC, the ever impressive performances of Chris Farmer and John Bolino, a highly anticipated Haffey section and Don Bambrick’s best video profile ever. In short, more incredible footage than any other team could ever dream of producing in just twelve months.

With a team spread out all over the USA though, this comes at a cost and AJ probably spent more time on the road than most people will in their entire life already. Through countless tours, too many legendary videos to count, and several trips across the pond, the Vibralux mastermind has gathered more valuable knowledge than people twice his age. As he was about to embark on his latest filming trip, we took a look at his luggage, and asked AJ to share some of his best tips on how to travel wise: watch, read and learn, kids!
