One of her first big jobs was to go on tour with nonetheless than The Rolling Stones (1975). It was hard, but a time when she learned a lot and got to be a full time photographer.
She has photographed for countless magazines, namely Rolling Stone, Vanity Fair, and Vogue.
The list of celebrities she worked with is endless. Demi Moore, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Mikhail Baryshnikov, Meryl Streep, and Queen Elisabeth II (see video below) are just a few of the countless names I could mention. She famously photographed John Lennon just hours before he was shot.
I own one of her books: Annie Leibovitz: At Work. It allies great imagery with an explanation of the different stages of her career. I highly recommend it.
Leibovitz has produced some of the most memorable images I retain in my memory. She is a strong reference.
