I want to do something meaningful with my life.I enjoy mechanics, mathematics, art/photography. I thought accounting would be a good goal, but I don't really want to sit in a cubicle and crunch numbers. I want to see the world and create things. What are some career choices or companies/organizations that involve my interests(Math, Mechanics, Arts, Photography) and what type(s) of degrees would I need to achieve to earn a high paying, respectable career in either or all fields?

Your interest in creative endeavors and your strength in STEM can set you up well in entrepreneurship. I would recommend that you look into creative start up companies. One way is to read through Popular Science, Popular Photography, or other things that interests you, and see what (small) companies are mentioned. Research those companies a bit, and see if you foresee yourself doing that kind of work, and what kind of skill sets are needed to do that kind of work.
Since you are good at math and mechanics, I would strongly encourage you to study something technical. The core analytical fundamentals are more suitable for classroom learning.
The reason I mentioned small companies, is because smaller companies often allow you to be jack of all trades freeing you from the cubicle drone atmosphere, even though you might still work in a cubicle.
