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.

Annie brings you into her studio and onto her shoots to teach you everything she knows about portraiture and telling stories through images.Explore the Class
I learned a lot about the way a photographer develops by watching Annie talk about her work now and over the years and how she was influenced. This was the most helpful part of the course to me.
I really enjoyed this class. I wish that you had more classes with visual artists. I would love to take a class by a painter, or sculptor, or installation artist
There are great photos that aren't sharp. It's fun and challenging to use only one lens, or shoot with a toy camera or antique cameras.
Inspiring! Gives me courage to look for deeper meaning and connect with my family, people, the world. How refreshing to know she is just a person like all of us.
