Ophelia Wynne, lecturer on the BA (Hons) Photography course at Nottingham Trent University, has recently worked on a fashion shoot for luxury American fashion house Marc Jacobs.

Ophelia was approached by Marc Jacobs through Instagram, where they were impressed by examples of her previous work. She flew out to New York, spending two days shooting images for an upcoming Marc Jacobs fashion editorial. The stylish shoot took place in various iconic locations in New York, including inside the Royal Suite of the Plaza Hotel overlooking Central Park, and The Flower Shop, a highly Instagrammable bar on the Lower East Side. Marc Jacobs have since invited Ophelia back to work with them on future projects.
