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.*
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.

What a personal journey of photographing and reportage as Annie described her works. It's so insightful and personable that you definitely want to retake each of her classes again!! She is the best!
Enjoyed learning her creative process. I found the course inspiring.
This class brought me to tears on several occasions. Annie's style of photography, and her insights into light & shot composition were astounding.
I spent just about all of my career as a producer/director, dealing with multi-camera video shoots to tell stories. Annie’s class has re-energized me to go out with a single camera (I’m going to use my iPhoneX) and re-connect with the basics!
