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 has been an honor to learn of the instincts, impressions and talent of Annie. An absolute joy to take her class.
Loved this course! Although some people expected to learn about the technical side of photography and a step by step guide, I think this course is an inside of one of the most brilliant creative minds of all times.
I know nothing about photography and I have always admired Ms Leibovitz's work. Her creative process is fascinating. I found it so refreshing - she's not that into the technical aspect of things. You would never guess that. Great class.
Interesting, poignant, and the class of a true master.
