Lesson time 14:17 min
Annie brings you inside a photo shoot with the renowned chef Alice Waters. Learn how Annie built the concept for the photos, conducted research, and prepared for the shoot.
Annie Leibovitz was the first woman to be named chief photographer at Rolling Stone and the last person to take a portrait of John Lennon. In her first online photography class, Annie shows us that what makes a picture stunning isn’t the gear or technology—it’s the story. Annie teaches you her philosophy: how to develop concepts, work with subjects, shoot with natural light, and bring images to life in post-production. See the world through her eyes.

I thoroughly enjoyed my first MasterClass Video.
I found that Annie took us on a journey into her photography and her inspiration. She wasn't teaching as much as sharing, inviting us in. This is not a class of technique but of heart and eye. I found it different to what I expected, but valuable nonetheless and have felt inspired to keep doing what I do.
I'm not a photographer so I was heartened to hear that she's not so much interested in the technology as she is in seeing.
I think I learnt how to see people and places differently.
