Annie discusses why your family and loved ones may be your best photography subjects and what opportunities come from photographing subjects who are close to you.
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.

Thank you Annie for showing us your world ...
I have learned how little I know and that my way of taking photos is OK. I have been given direction and it is up to me to embrace it.
I have purchased numerous photography tutorials and somehow I received an Photography Masterclass notification. Imagine my surprise and delight that Annie Leibovitz was the instructor. Her intuitive and common sense approach has inspired me. I could not get enough of her lessons and wanted more... all classes held my attention and never were they boring. Excellent!!
Thank you for this inspiring and motivating Masterclass. I have had a life long passion for beautiful and truthful imagery but only now do I feel determined to make it a priority in my life. I am mesmerized by and in awe of the spectacular insight and talent of Annie Leibovitz...a truly spiritual encounter. Aside from being her actual apprentice - this was an unsurpassable experience.
