None of us would let a self taught Doctor do surgery on us would we? I know that is an extreme example but formal education in any field is important.
I am a keen amateur photographer I have been doing it now for over 30 years. I do photography because I enjoy it... Would I enjoy it as much if its work? I don't think I would.
The occasional sale of my web site is good for the ego.
You admit you are not "Self taught" but that you are learning from others the same as taking advice and looking at photos here.i personally am self taught as i work ALOT when im not working im out n about with my gf but brought a camera one day now glued to here and youtube trying to find better easier ways to do shots and so on

What Im saying is no matter how technical one is I doubt you can teach or learn the artistic side of photography the same apply s for oil/watercolour painting. One can easily pick a paint the dots painting against a artist painting
Just go out with one simple prime lens and keep shooting till YOUR happy as you will never please everyone.
