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.

I am an aspiring photographer that to be honest, needed some inspiration. Annie's passion fror taking something that can be complex, and making it seem so simple yet artistic, gave me just that. I loved hearing her story and seeing what photography means to her. The only thing I was hoping for more was actually a little more teaching of how to become a better photographer mechanically.
as a professfessional, it has reminded me of what i loved, taking photos for me,and the excitement of youth!
Inspire me a lots! will watch over and over again...
Enjoyed her Masterclass! I appreciate Annie sharing her experiences in the photo world.
