So I just had this thought, as I'm currently a senior in hs about to go to college and figure my life out. My ultimate passion in life is filmmaking and it's what I'd like to do for a living(god willing) in the near future. Sadly, my inspiration to make films kinda got halted in the past 4-5 months due to the fact that I've really picked up steam exploring. While exploring is extremely fun for me, almost an addiction, it's honestly not that productive. After all, it's just a hobby. But since I spend a significant amount of time doing it every week, I can't help but wonder if there's any merit to it when it comes to deciding one's career.
My main question is can UE have a significant effect on what people end up doing in life? For example, I've been thinking more and more about architecture thanks to the hobby boosting my interest in buildings. While famous explorers like illsight have certainly made a living directly from urbex, I'm mostly talking about what urbex has inspired people to do with their lives, if anything. Hopefully this makes sense, but I can clarify anything.
constants are changing...
Not an expert.

I would think being a film maker who is in to urban exploration would lead to a ton of opportunities.
Just shoot miniature documentaries every time you explore.
Personally I work in a sales job. Urban Exploration is something that I use often when there is a lull in conversation. Even indirectly if someone mentions they're in to architecture, or history, photography, etc. it gives me plenty to talk about and relate back to the individual.
The truth of things is almost every experience can be tied in to something else if you look at it in the right light.
Urban exploration has you challenging yourself, honing your wits, doing research, engineering yourself in and out of situations, physical exertion, and many other aspects that apply to almost any situation if you think about it right.
If there were big profits in it be being done by many film producers.
A niche market means small profits... try adding an angle to it like haunted by ghosts.
Than you be another lord rick, probably in debt or poverty or a brief cloud of pink mist in an Area 51 minefield
Really if this hobby were that mainstream we all be fucking tourists here at that point.
UER could have a chain of pay for admission "abandoned" sites to "explore".
Maybe even time shares to camp out at over 300 different sites
world wide... blah-blah-blah
swell... I hate tourists
Just when I thought I was out... they pulled me back in.
