@jessicakobeissi | Creating From Scratch with Jessica Kobeissi

The Darkroom Podcast

In this episode of The Darkroom Podcast we got a chance to chat with YouTuber and photographer Jessica Kobeissi in the Epidemic Sound Studio.  Even as a teenager, Jessica was building community and exploring her artistic talents through PaintShop Pro and Neopets. With a massive following on Neopets, Jessica was inspired to build her own website, teaching herself how to code. She began releasing design tutorials and even ran advertising through her website as a 15 year old. Jessica got her first camera soon after, inspired by other artists on Facebook and began shooting portrait work from day 1 in her backyard. Since then, she has amassed over 1.6 million subscribers on YouTube where she helps her viewers grow their skills while bringing the photography community closer.  With a heavy focus on portraiture work, Jessica gives her advice for any artists looking to find their speciality and begin standing out in our saturated world of content. Jessica brings such a unique energy and perspective to any discussion so we're excited to share this episode with you!
