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.
Featured Masterclass Instructor
Annie brings you into her studio and onto her shoots to teach you everything she knows about portraiture and telling stories through images.Explore the Class
Entertaining stories, less about lens selections and compositing. Perhaps that was the insightful point.
Practical insight with plenty of creative process too. Love learning Annie's POV and willingness to share. Well worth the cost.
"Inspiration", this is the one word, that I will say.
It was wonderful to hear Annie describe her journey through photography and realize that she's as normal as the rest of us, with flaws and fears. I didn't need to hear how she technically creates her images, so that was fine for me. I wanted to hear her honest approach and how she views her life in photography. And that's what I got. Thank you Annie for sharing your photography life with us.
