Living life off the clock

Our 9-5's limit us all from pursuing the things we are passionate about. For that reason, too many people lose touch with activities they genuinely love doing. We deliver content that reminds and empowers people not to lose those connections. We're realists, & we get it - we've got bills too. But with a bit of diligence, add some creativity & spontaneity, there are opportunities to chase the things you love. Our goal is to help you do that.

Hunter, Angler, Photographer - Kirk Marks

About a year ago we came across Kirk Marks on Instagram and instantly felt drawn to his work. We're inspired by people who work hard at their day jobs, but prioritize time for their avocations as well. To us, that's what it's all about. Kirk is a talented photographer, and a skilled outdoorsman.

Got Skunked, So We Drank Beer

A couple months ago we decided to fish on Ryan’s boat in Lynnhaven Inlet. It’s winter, and the water temperature is in the low 50’s. The fish are lethargic, but still chewing. I had some luck earlier that week catching Speckled Trout and Red Drum, so I was excited about the prospect of us getting on some fish.
