Welcome to the weekly virtual photography roundup 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

 

The Battle


Game: Assassin’s Creed Odyssey


VP Artist: @coalabr14


This week’s showcase begins with an epic battle shot from Odyssey. I am really enjoying the mood of this capture. It has a very cinematic style and reminds me of the Gladiator movie. Kassandra looks like a true warrior, deflecting the Athenian shield while her sword is on fire. I wish these battles were in Valhalla. Would have been great to be part of a shield wall.

The Ones Who Came Before Photo of the Week:


Judge - Colum Blackett (Col_96) from TOWCB Core Team


I love how Kassandra and her flaming sword take centre stage in this shot, captured during one of the large-scale battles which Odyssey recreated so well. For me, this shot looks good enough to have been an official promotional image for the game, and uses colour particularly well to create an atmosphere. Kassandra almost certainly executed her attacker moments later.

 

Surprise


Game: Assassin’s Creed Valhalla


VP Artist: @m_nt_13


A bit of comedy for our second shot this week. This capture just brings a smile to my face. My daughter does the same thing to me if I don’t pay her attention. All jokes aside this shot is fantastic, it is the perfect mix of timing and positioning. I applaud m for originality here, really brings something quirky and different to our VP showcase. 


 

Women of the Creed


Game: Assassin’s Creed Valhalla


Platform: PS5


VP Artist: @Amaya_Nocturna


It was International Women’s day on Wednesday and what better way to celebrate than this beautiful capture of Eivor. I am always a sucker for black background shots, I feel it elevates the subject so well. The lack of colour in general here adds to a vintage feel that compliments the classic Assassin look. This shot would make a stunning phone wallpaper.


 

Enter the Creed


Game: Assassin’s Creed Valhalla


VP Artist: @Virtual_Polly


Valhalla often receives criticism for its lack of Assassin’s, however I enjoyed exploring the hidden Bureaus. This shot certainly shows off why they are such a delight to uncover. I like the angle of this capture as it encompasses the fiery Assassin symbol with Eivor stood in the centre. I love the shadow work, especially Eivor’s. This photo is full of mystery and intent, and it makes me want to fire up the game again.


 

Edward Kenway


Game: Assassin’s Creed Valhalla


VP Artist: @FrameHoldPhotos


I had to end this week with a celebration of everyone’s favourite Pirate. It is very much a pirate’s life for this seafaring Assassin. Edward brought about a change to the formula and the reception was favourable. I love this capture, a beautiful celebratory shot in the modern format. The sea, sand, outfit and sky are a pleasure to look at. Happy Birthday Edward Kenway!
