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 was like a heart to heart from a warm, real instructor. I appreciated leaving out the usual, and diving confidently into the meaningful, the beyond
I think I learnt how to see people and places differently.
Listening to Annie share her background and philosophy gave me confidence that being true to my unique perspective was the most important thing going forward -- to not only becoming a good, skilled photographer but also to experiencing personal joy from the experience.
I've enjoyed very much the philosophical approach of this class - it is not about the technical aspects of photographing but about the psychological process.
