Annie talks about her approach to studio photography, her strong preference for shooting on location, and the role of environment in her portraiture.
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.

It's changed my perspective about the balance between the technicality of photography and the artistry when one develops their perspective.
Love her calm commitment to the artist's inspiration, patience, and fantastic imagination with her subjects. Can't wait for more.
It would have been good to see more of Annie's hands on case studies like the one with Alice. That was great. Great class and advise overall.
I am not a photographer but I do create pictures. This class was great way to focus and reflect on my own image-making and what is most meaningful and interesting to me.
