Photography is open to all levels and abilities, but you are correct that the very latest equipment and software costs a lot of money. Having a lot of money doesn't make you a pro, even if it does allow you to buy pro equipment. Money can't buy you a good image; that is a skill set you can learn with experience with relatively cheap equipment and software. In fact there is excellent software out there that is free to download and use, and the principles for using most software packages are the same.
Second hand equipment can be found on the highstreet and there is an abundance of bargains to be had on the internet. Photoplus is not geared at the pro market. Look at most of the "how to" articles that the staff write and you will find that they generally use a camera body that could be three or four years old and affordable software such as Elements.
Lastly, market forces determine the success of a product and Photoplus isn't any different. If a particular demographic is heading up the majority of sales, then that speaks for itself.
