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.

Before...I used to carry my camera everywhere and take pictures all the time. Although I always thought that it would be a nice job, I just had the chance to do it as part of one of my other passions (archaeology). Knowing how she started in the "industry" and seeing her first pictures I see I could have done more and may be is not late yet.
I like hearing her theory on everything but i would have loved to see her actually working on set. Seeing her work her magic. She is an amazing photographer. i thought the course could have been better in teaching portrait photography.
I am a writer and photographer. Annie has always been an inspiration because she is a storyteller-every photo tells a story, some simple, some complex. I learned how to trust my instincts, how to keep it simple and the treasure of natural light.
Loved Annie’s honesty and vulnerability after so many years of work. She shared her love of a challenge, of an assignment as a new opportunity to tell a story about a person. Thank you Annie!
