I don't know about you, but I find those "Master Class" advertisements pretty moving all on their own. People with real authority in their fields offering to let you in on their secrets and tell you what they know. I mean really, Herbie Hancock teaching jazz and Helen Mirren teaching acting? Kinda gets me verklempt. I enjoy the ads and always watch new ones to the end.
I'm not recommending this per se, because I don't know anything about the organization or the classes...haven't taken one, haven't looked into it. But none other than Annie Leibovitz is teaching an online class in portraiture, and, well, wow. I don't know, but I think I'd pay $90 for that. I did quite enjoy her book At Work (now out of print and getting expensive...I hope you bought it when I told you to.)
Gotta think about it. Maybe after Christmas.

Marco Maroccolo: "These courses are very well done—I tried some. From a technical point of view, shooting, location, and lighting are exemplary. The importance of the teachers who teach speak for themselves; I would like to recommend one of the first courses that they did, the one taught by Werner Herzog; in all probability it is not for everyone, but considering the duration and the number of pearls of wisdom profused by the director there is absolutely no proportion to the cost of the course. I think it is also of great interest to photography enthusiasts because it mainly talks about how to tell a story through images."
