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.

Inspire me a lots! will watch over and over again...
Like a philosophical level of Annie´s work. I did expect a bit more technical info on composition... But I really enjoyed it!
I immensely enjoyed hearing straight from Annie what works best for her and how to find ways that work best for us. Thank you Annie for your time.
As a professional photographer and Director of Photography taking the class has given me some new ideas on how or what I may want to accomplish on future projects.
