You need to use your full real name, it's one of the forum rules.

If you look in the film school section you can get a feel for the courses that are available.

Also no need for the 'pho', it's just cinematography.

Find a school where your regular assignments are to make and submit movies rather than simply study film analysis and history. These schools can sometimes be unaccredited, but a solid portfolio means more than a degree in many cases. Cinematography is a very technical position, so expect to spend a few years of hard studying and several thousands of dollars on equipment (apart from tuition). And you need to work well with others, so collaborate often and make sure you understand the job requirements of the electricians and grips you would be in charge of.

And where do you live, if you don't mind sharing? And what part of the US would you be studying in?
