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 can't tell you how much I enjoyed this class. Very inspiring. After all these years to get inside Annie's world a bit - no words. Thank you Annie!
As an admirer of Annie Liebovitz, I am grateful for her willingness to share her masterful insight, ideas and inspiration. Thank you.
Nice introduction. I'm happy to discover your work and your "photography philsophy". Impressive carreer.
I learned what it means to "see" and have a lot more confidence when approaching sitters for portraits whether they're experienced or not!
