    You may find that using and increasing your business knowledge and keeping photography for a means of escape and personal expression is more satisfying to the wallet.

    Photography as a job does not pay particularly good. Are you going to be satisfied in your photography being bent to what someone else wants or will it be a canker that throbs and tears at your desire to express yourself?

    Ryan,

    I am not sure if it is still the case but the 2 best schools in the US were thought to be Brooks Institute in California and Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) in New York State. Of the 2 certainly RIT would be closest to Philadelphia.

    You might want to look into CUNY and NYU too. Both have photography divisions in the Fine Arts departments. Another somewhat farther north of there is Bard College. Gather up lots of materials and information, then try to visit the schools you are considering. Ideally, try to speak with some people who might become your future professors.

    Part of a Fine Arts degree is connections, meaning the the people who will instruct you will become your first networking opportunities to practice your (future) degree as a business. The other aspect of a Fine Arts degree is honing your creative vision; part of that will be self driven, though a great deal will be inspired by your professors and the other students.

    Best of luck in your future endeavours.

    Ciao!
