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.

This was great! Thanks for sharing with us Annie!
Start with your family; they are important to you, and their photos will last longer than them.
This class has been great! I have gained deeper knowledge of composing an image and telling the story. All my thanks.
I got so much out of this class. I am an experienced photographer so I was mainly interested in her workflow and thought process. I loved seeing her on set and working with others. I got some amazing tips for my future shoots and just thinking about them from a different angle.
