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.

This masterclass helped me to understand 3 important things; the importance of communication with the subject the importance of not stress planning a session when you let it flow can work better the importance of giving yourself the freedom to experiment. Thanks Annie for everything shared!
It gave me a new perspective on photography plus very useful tips and insights.
Wow. An important question, but for me, at least, it is too soon to answer.
Not to judge my practice of photography as being good or bad, not to think it should be a certain way other than what it is, that by caring about it, being deliberate and thoughtful, I can make something beautiful for people to see.
