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.

This class has shown and confirmed to me that I'm on the right path in life. It has shared how one can view the world through and image. That you should truly focus on the images that mean something to you and just go ahead and put the work in. Without caring about what others think. Thank you to master class and Thank you to Annie for sharing such beautiful insight and stories. -Evan Thomas
