You beat me to what I was going to say. $87k is going to get you one hell of a business degree and possibly MBA. Take photography classes as an elective. Or take them at a community college or as weekend classes. There's plenty of classroom opportunities to learn photograhy while persuing a degree that can be used in different markets/industries.
