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
Every time I hear Annie Leibovitz talking I just get emotion about life, that what I learn from her.
I have learnt about the important of seeing and will bring that with me. I will also try to free myself from being too technical in my approach and more work on creating content and telling a story. The personal part of photography and what the picture means to me as a photographer and the subject is also interesting. I will continue to look for beautiful pictures on so many levels
To be honest I just took this masterclass without any real desire to do photography but I was compelled by Annie and how she explains her philosophy . This biggest takeaway for me is that photography is an adventure, always different, helping you to see the world, find yourself and perhaps most importantly capturing those moments with the people that are most special to you in your life.
First, I thought this was an awkward class. Taught by an overly shy person. But a year later it's the one class that I remember most fondly, strange.
