Success! I used iFile and removed the read access from "User" which won't allow Windows Explorer to recognize the connected iPhone. Easy enough for me to re-enable when I need to backup the pictures and I was still able to take pictures and view the camera roll on the phone which is already password protected.
Thank you for the help!!
EDIT: Loaded up iTunes on a foreign computer and no other functionality is affected. When I'm at my own computer will test backing up though it's my computer and I'll probably just re-enable the permissions
