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 was good to hear that the juxtaposition of TWO photos is sometimes what's actually needed to tell the story. This series is a total pleasure.
The class was good and informative, I enjoyed the way Annie told her story of photography and shared her various experiences it felt very authentic and real.
I enjoyed this MasterClass so much! Loved the actual photos taken. I'm inspired to learn more about photography, and I am already taking more pictures!
Very inspiring. Even as a published photographer I have learned so much from the this class and will take it with me as I continue to grow and learn. Thanks, Annie and Masterclass.
