Annie Leibovitz

Our Inspiring woman of the day is iconic photographer Annie Leibovitz. Her career began in 1973 as a staff photographer for Rolling Stone magazine, which was just the beginning of a career that has captured some of people's most intense and intimate moments. She has scaled buildings for the sake of a great picture, been on tour with the Rolling Stones, raised three children, and given us some of the most memorable photos in the world. (Who could ever forget pregnant Demi Moore?) Check out this great article from Vanity Fair, and pick up Annie's book, At Work where she explains how many of her famous pictures came to be.
