Annie discusses portraiture and photojournalism, and what makes portrait photography so compelling for her as a medium. Learn why Annie loves the photo series and why a single image cannot truly "capture" a person.*
Topics include: Photojournalism and Portraits • Capturing History • Photo Essays
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.

This class inspired me. My work has gotten better because what this class gave me most was the reminder that I need to find what matters to me in any given situation, That's what I now capture. Not just pretty or dramatic, but what matters!
Before...I used to carry my camera everywhere and take pictures all the time. Although I always thought that it would be a nice job, I just had the chance to do it as part of one of my other passions (archaeology). Knowing how she started in the "industry" and seeing her first pictures I see I could have done more and may be is not late yet.
Brilliant! I could listen to Annie all day. I hoped to see her directing subjects on a shoot but apart from that, it's fantastic!
Brilliant.. I'd love to do WS with her. I mean, a live one....
