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.

Inspirational story from a talented and fascinating woman. I'm not a photographer but I will take some of the lessons and use them in my field as a designer
This is what a "master" can give you; the concentrated perspective of her approach to her endeavors. You may find you didn't realize you were trapped in a box until she shows you the door you had failed to notice.
I now know more about Annie's point of view about how to approach photographic content but not much about how to create this amazing images with beautiful composition.
This class rekindled my passion for why I do what I do as a photographer. I was completely compelled by it.
