The Art Of The Photo

Annie 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 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 on photography—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.

Learn Annie's creative process and be inspired to try new and practical photography techniques.

A downloadable workbook accompanies the class with lesson recaps, assignments, and additional resources.
