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.

It has been an honor to learn of the instincts, impressions and talent of Annie. An absolute joy to take her class.
I love photography and found Annie perspective and process very interesting. I loved that she was telling her story and her life work, made think about how I photograph. Going to do her assignments, great class.
I liked seen that she doesn't wear any makeup, it seems to me that that fact alone brings the sensation of honesty
Great course! Not technical but very inspiring....
