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.

never thought of taking pictures could be an art of philosophy. the lesson i have learned is that the pictures should have or could tell some stories that moves the viewers and have some sort of resonance between.
I think the most valuable lessons in this materclass was just to listen to Annie’s experience and process. A lot of information can be learned from that alone. And that’s essentially how photography works: Observing other people’s work and understanding their process, helps to formulate a personal foundation from which you can build your own work.
The class has taught me a great deal about photography composition as well as what it means to be an artist using photography
Wow, by being part of Annie’s journey thru the different classes in a way it’s validated my journey, made me appreciate the opportunity I have to photography people, whilst learning and perfecting my craft.
