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.

Annie is the most generous, humble and insightful Master photographer - in all her comments, suggestions and lovely anecdotes of her life and work. I was re-inspired to pick up my dusty old cameras again and try to find myself in photography! Thank you so much Masterclass and thank you Annie
Ms. Liebovitz is amazing. Mesmerizing. Her art is so personal and can never be replicated. I just study it and learn.
I was looking for techniques and ideas which would lead me to improve my understanding and my approach to framing and composing a photograph. Annie's lessons exposed me to so many considerations I can explore in my journey to improve.
The class rekindled my interest in the photographic image, and I think it will help me focus on content and to stop obsessing about the gear.
