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.

I loved hearing Annie speak. That's why I took the class, just to know more about her, how she thinks, what matters to her in photography, what her journey has been. I took notes along the way and will go back and see what I learned, but most important to me was to hear Annie tell her story in her own voice.
Inspiring! It makes me want to grab my camera and fire away!
It's too soon to tell how this class has helped meet to improve, however listening to Annie has encouraged me to be more of a critical thinker.
It is more like an extended interview of her photographic journey than a class like the others on masterclass.com. I am somewhat disappointed.
