Annie Leibovitz’s MasterClass is officially live today! You can now enroll and begin her MasterClass on photography here.
Annie Leibovitz is one of the most influential photographers of our time. In a career spanning over 40 years, she has produced iconic, thought-provoking editorial work for Rolling Stone, Vanity Fair, and Vogue as well as creating award-winning advertising campaigns. Her numerous honors include the International Center of Photography Lifetime Achievement Award, the American Society of Magazine Editor’s first Creative Excellence Award, and the Centenary Medal of the Royal Photographic Society in London. She has been decorated a Commandeur in the Ordre des Arts et des Lettres by the French Government and designated a Living Legend by the Library of Congress. Exhibitions of her work have appeared in museums and galleries all over the world.
In Annie’s first-ever online class, students will learn what she looks for, what she sees, how to work with subjects, and how to use light. Annie takes her students on a photoshoot with Chef Alice Waters and then back into her studio to explore creating concepts and digital post production.
“I’m enamored with photography and its latitude—all the different possibilities of how to use photography. I’ll never tire of going out to take photographs. It’s always an adventure.”—Annie Leibovitz
“Annie is a rebel. She teaches you how to break the rules to take stunning photographs. It’s easy to get wrapped up in the latest technology, Annie shows us that what makes a picture stunning isn’t the gear — it’s the story. If you want to learn how to use f-stops, this isn’t the class for you. If you want to learn how to take photos (no matter how technical you are) that make people cry, smile, laugh or get stopped in their tracks — this is your class. There isn’t another class like it.” —David Rogier, CEO and Co-Founder of MasterClass.
