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's perspective and creativity inspired me to take a fresh look at how and what I photograph. Her insights gave me permission to go to the next place in my development. The advice to go back and look at "early" photos impacted me has been revealing and permission giving.
The classes gave me knowledge in telling stories through photographs and showing emotion and how powerful that can be to the viewer.
It was an amazing experience! I think Annie just make you look the art that is photography, and she makes you forget about all that technical side of it, and just push into believing in you as an artist, as a creator, it was a beautiful thing to watch and read. Thank you.
I became more self-concious. Found out many things in common with Annie: thoughts and ideas, way of work. Now I feel that I'm on the tight way
