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.

The class helped me to be braver and learn that it’s ok to be enthusiastic.
It has helped me a lot to get to share the experience of someone like Annie. Ive worked in another profession but have always liked photography. And now Im dedicating to it! Love to see her passion for this art and her philosophy. Wonderful experience, thanks to the organizers and to Annie,and the development of technollogy, Agustina from Argentina.
Annie is a true master. She teaches us how to think and experiment. After all, photography is not a technical work, it's art, it requires creativity, it requires your heart.
This masterclass helped me to understand 3 important things; the importance of communication with the subject the importance of not stress planning a session when you let it flow can work better the importance of giving yourself the freedom to experiment. Thanks Annie for everything shared!
