    I'm looking at RIT, Brooks, and NESOP (New England School of Photography). Where else can I look? I need a change. I'll go to photo school, have fun, then go back and get a Business Degree when It really means something to me.

    Maine Photographic Institute. I took a few lighting classes there many years ago and was impressed by the place.

    Brooks is a good school as well. I went there back in the early 70's.

    Edit: Maine photographic workshops....not institute.

    AI of Chicago or Seattle
    School of fine arts in Pasadena

    I can give you all the info on Brooks too, but don't want to influence your decision.

    I know quite a few people who have attended the photo school at RIT (I study at RIT but for something else) and it seems to be a good school for learning technique, processes, the technology and tools. I'm not sure what you really hope to learn from going to school for photography, however I've been told the most valuable part will be knowing what's available to you and how to use it, as well as the connections a good school can build.

    Anywhere in the US. I'm pretty mobile at the moment.

    I just want to make sure it stays in the top tier of photo schools (if that exists)

    Not looking for a fine art photo school, but more of advertising and commercial.
