Every week I will be picking our top 5 favourite Assassin’s Creed shots and showcasing them on The Ones Who Came Before website, in order to promote virtual photography and talented content creators within the community.
Aaron is a keen virtual photographer and loves to post his journeys through Assassin’s Creed on Twitter.
Keep an eye on the site as more weekly shots are added, we are looking for captures across all Assassin’s Creed games.
Tag your photos to the #TOWCBWeeklyCapture for a chance to be featured.
This week’s theme: Assassin’s Creed
The Eagle Bearer
Game: Assassin’s Creed Odyssey
VP Artist: @G_Assassin90
First up this week we have Kassandra rocking the Ikaros armour set. This is one of my favourites from the game, the colours and the mask just work so well on Kassandra. This shot is all about the lighting, I love the shadows and the angles. That black background is really making the shot for me. A wonderful capture from G-Assassin, check the link below for the full set.
Game: Assassin’s Creed Origins

Continuing with the bird theme, we have an elegant shot of white Senu soaring through the sky. I adore the simplistic nature of this capture. Excellent placement of the camera to hide the sun behind the body of the bird, creating those incredible rays of light. The eagle has been a symbol of the Assassins from the start and looks set to continue in Mirage.
Coming In To Land
Game: Assassin’s Creed Origins Platform: PS5
VP Artist: @BasimIbnIshaq_
It seems this week I cannot escape eagle shots. Senu once again features for photo number three. I have to say I think this is one of the best captures from Origins I have seen. The framing is on point and the timing is something else. I love how Bayek has his arm out ready to receive his companion. This reminds me of the awesome Origins CGI trailers we saw in the build up to release.
The Ones Who Came Before Photo of the Week:

This image is a great depiction of the feeling you get when playing Origins. Bayek alone in the desert, nothing but the next target to guide you and with Senu always by your side and always graceful. Plus, the composition as Senu's head guides your eye to Bayek brings it all together.
Egypt From Above
Game: Assassin’s Creed Origins
VP Artist: @missroseplays
I should have put out an eagle theme for this week! Next up we have a glorious shot of Senu gliding through the air. The depth of field here is perfect, you get to see Senu in all her glory without missing the majesty of the golden topped pyramid and the surround environment. The love that has been shown for loyal Bonelli eagle this week amazes me.
Game: Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Platform: PS5
VP Artist: @Jaque_Ar
Our final shot this week perfectly wraps up the showcase. We can see Eivor taking a leap of faith and diving straight into the weekend. I can't quite make out the outfit, I believe it could be Basim's. This shot is all about the sun and those golden rays. The Vistas in Valhalla are so beautiful, and this capture is showcasing one of them impeccably.
And that sums it up for this week’s Assassin’s Creed virtual photography recap list!
Thank you for checking out this week’s photo collection. This would not be possible without the
virtual photographers out there so a huge thanks to them. Until next week keep those shots coming
