Annie Leibovitz Shoots a Dozen Portraits for Real Estate Ads

Corcoran's 'Live who you are'

Headshot of Tim Nudd

The Corcoran Group wanted some nice portraits for its latest "Live who you are" ads. So, naturally, the high-end real estate company went with a high-end photographer.

Check out 12 new ads below, shot by Annie Leibovitz, featuring well-known, talented, affluent individuals in their own homes. The ads were shot in Manhattan, Brooklyn, the Hamptons and Palm Beach, which are the markets Corcoran serves (and are auspicious places to photograph nice-looking homes—and nice-looking people, for that matter).

The subjects range from singer Jimmy Buffett to NBA player Tyson Chandler to ballerina Misty Copeland (above, in her second high-profile ad gig in a month).

"Annie Leibovitz is the preeminent documentarian of our day," says Corcoran president and CEO Pamela Liebman. "For her to lend her experience and skill to Corcoran and our campaign is a very powerful gift. People will look forward to seeing each of the 12 sensational portraits as we unfold them over the next few months."
