Annie Leibovitz's iconic photographs have appeared in museums, books, and magazines from Vanity Fair to Rolling Stone—and now she’s your instructor. In introducing her class, Annie reflects on her career and the power of telling stories with photography.*
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 Leibovitz is a strong voice for creative exploration. She's authentic and confident in her approach to visual expression. I love this!
This class was helpful with inspiration and ideas. It also collected important artists to study and learn from. This class demands that you do the work and figure it out on your own, which is appropriate for an art class. Some technical stuff may help tho.
I loved getting to experience Annie's Masterclass! It was a lot of fun and very educational! A couple of suggestions that I have to improve are.... (1) Talk more about the technical aspect.... editing, lighting, shutter speed and aperture. (2) Make it more personal.... have Annie answer people's individual questions.
It shows me to go more on the content side instead of the technical side of the photography and to not let you stopped by rules. Also to get to know your subject it's important for a good photograph on what story the photograph has.
