ICP, Trump and the problem of democracy in the current age.
3

I had a very inspiring meeting with the head of the education department at ICP.

In their online and in house classes the face issues parallel to this forum.   Most people are not interested in interesting and challenging courses.  The more interesting the course, the harder it is to find people willing to sign up for them.  A course on beginning portraiture, or street photography, or how to make a photo book sells out instantly.   This is frustrating.

I suggested that consider a more upscale track that charges more money and might, hopefully attract more artistically serious people.  How many of the people posting here would pay even $100 a year?  
A really serious online group, I think, with education, leadership and up to date technology, would cost about $1500 a year.   For me, and others, that would be worth it.   If one takes photography seriously, one has to take it seriously.
Serious people pay thousands of dollars for photography boot camps.   Those are the kinds of people who can benefit each other.
