I’m kind of in a predicament here. Been looking for something I could get into as far as a rewarding career as an Agoraphobic, and thought I'd found one.

Spent months, upon years, searching from one thing to the next. I thought “photography” might be a good fit. Even, bought all sorts of camera/photography equipment in the hopes of turning a hobby into a possible career.

However, the problem I find myself in here is, I still have a difficult time getting myself out of the house. Sure, there are things/ compositions I can take/shoot in-doors, yet I was really hoping to get into out-door, nature, macro, astral, wildlife, landscape.

Yet everything, all my equipment, just sits there. Collecting dust.... I was wondering if there are any other agoraphobics out there who might be going/ or have gone through/ dealt with the same thing? If so, if I may ask, how did you overcome this?

Hi - I don't have agoraphobia, but I just saw your post asking for help. I can't help but wonder if you have sought therapy for agoraphobia? If not, that might be a good idea. Do you think you could start photographing things just outside your own door? You could even set up a scene with some items inside your house and just see what that felt like. I enjoy taking pictures (wouldn't call myself a photographer) and I think it would be a rewarding career, but also one that would require a lot of travelling, at least into the outdoors and wildlife areas for your interests. Have you ever thought about looking into an online job? Just some ideas.
