Annie shares how she approaches working with a subject for a photo shoot, including refuting the popular notion that it's a photographer's responsibility to put a subject at ease.
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 got so much out of this class. I am an experienced photographer so I was mainly interested in her workflow and thought process. I loved seeing her on set and working with others. I got some amazing tips for my future shoots and just thinking about them from a different angle.
I have been working as a photographer for 10 years and i have been feeling lost in this industry. This class has help me to go back and re -discover why i choose this path. Thank you so much
I have always admire Annie, so going through her full journey was really special, thank you for this class.
Annie opened my eyes to the other side of photography. Not escaping the technical side but adding to with the knowledge of people, place, and light.
