Welcome to the weekly virtual photography roundup series hosted by Aaron Young from The AC Partnership Program. 

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


1. Snake in the Shadows

Game: Assassin’s Creed Odyssey

VP Artist: @MechXican

First up this week we have a striking shot of Kassandra dressed for the kill. I love the lighting of this capture, the dark background with the snippets of light on her face really gives off Assassin vibes. I love finding stealth focused shots from Odyssey due to it often receiving criticism for its lack of Assassin’s. This shot is worthy of its place in the first showcase of 2023.


2. Assassin Pose. 

Game: Assassin’s Creed Valhalla

Platform: PS5

VP Artist: @Amaya_Nocturna

Just like with Odyssey it is cool when you find a real Assassin's pose in Valhalla. Personally, I focus more on the Viking aspects when playing the game, but I think the cities lend themselves to some very classic shots. I love this one of Eivor. The background is just stunning, showcasing the true beauty of Valhalla. The pose is perfection, that head turn makes the shot for me.


3. From the Dark

Game: Assassin’s Creed Valhalla 

Platform: PlayStation

VP Artist: @artschoolglases

Capture number three matches that of Kassandra with the spectacular black background. I particularly like how the darker outfit and hair blend brilliantly with the atmosphere of the shot. Eivor's pale skin tone allows her face to really shine. Coupled with the subtle green eye tattoo it makes for one marvellous portrait of our favourite Viking.


4. The Ghost of Valhalla

Game: Assassin’s Creed Valhalla

VP Artist: @SGVphoto

Something a little different for photo number four. Here we have a unique edit of Eivor in the Monster Hunter crossover outfit. I am not one for armour sets that don't fit the time period but this one does look awesome. The choice of colour is truly amazing, giving off a real movie poster vibe.

I wonder if this could be an insight into what we might expect from Codename Red.


5. Magnificent Paris

Game: Assassin’s Creed Unity

VP Artist: @ophierian_vp

This week's final shot comes with a touch of class. Assassin's Creed Unity always oozed class when it comes to buildings and this capture proves it. I am really blown away by the details and the lighting in this shot. To the untrained eye this could be mistaken for real life. I am hoping Mirage can bring back some of the beautiful interior's thanks to its smaller scale.

The Ones Who Came Before Photo of the Week

The Ones Who Came Before Photo of the Week:

Judge: Colum Blackett (TOWCB Community Admin // Creator)

  1. Snake in the Shadows

Game: Assassin’s Creed Odyssey

VP Artist: @MechXican

I absolutely love the colours in this shot, and the look on Kassandra's face as she observes her pray beneath a mask. The snake set turns Kassandra into a predator, ready to strike. This shot would make a very cool phone wallpaper.


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 in!
