    Interesting "Photoshop lawsuit:" Annie hires Paolo Pizzetti to scout and shoot backgrounds for a "high-profile shoot," then she can't manage to travel to Italy "because of time constraints." I wonder what the client thought of hiring Annie Leibovitz for a shoot, and then finding out she did it without ever leaving New York.

    I guess if you hire a photographer to shoot people in front of the Trevi fountain you have to make sure that your contract specifies that she actually go to Italy to do the job.

    Interesting, since Leibovitz is bankrupt. She could settle for $100-million -- doesn't matter to her.

    She never went into bankruptcy.

    I am glad to see someone having made it rich through photography and in a position to help other photographers.

    Not yet. Let's check back in a few months and see how things are going for Annie.

    From the article you linked to:


    In a deal announced on Friday between Leibovitz and Art Capital, the lender dropped its lawsuit against her and extended the maturity date on its loan.

    The company would not disclose how much more the American photographer will now have to repay nor by when, although it is understood to be a matter of months rather than weeks or years.



    She needs to scrape together $24-million within "months". There has just got to be a reality TV show somewhere in Annie's financial turmoil.
