My name is Yessica Duque, and I’m an award-winning food photographer and food stylist based in the Netherlands. 

Proud owner of YD Backdropspersonal brand I launched in 2020 focused on backdrops made for product and food photography.

I’ve been working in this beautiful industry since 2016, and it has been an incredible journey! I’ve had the privilege of collaborating with important brands in the photography industry such as Tether, B&H, and SIGMA Benelux as a Brand Ambassador.

As a food photographer, my work involves imagery for outdoor campaigns, commercial photography for important brands, social media, and PR for restaurants and Chefs in Europe.

In the past 6 years, I’ve amassed international certifications from many top programs and my adventurous style, sumptuous palette, and rich storytelling that emanates from my photography have gotten me nominations, awards, and widespread acclaim from the most prestigious and coveted awards in the food industry.

My expertise in Food Photography and Food Styling is backed by Le Cordon Bleu ParisLeiths School of Food and Wine in London and Food Styling for Media The International Culinary Center ICC New York.
