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 is a master. Thanks for the inspiration
The 'softer' photography side of how to see, the attitude to have, and Annie's overall philosophy was wonderful and refreshing.
The most important lesson that I've taken away from this Masterclass is to be reminded to see as a photographer, to keep taking photographs, to print and look at them, as opposed to obsessing about the technicalities. My enjoyment of photography has been dampened by this lately, and Annie has inspired me to pick up my camera again and shoot.
I enjoyed the philosophical content as well as the high production budget information.
