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: World of AC

 

1. The Way of the Medjay


Game: Assassin’s Creed Origins


VP Artist: @_Virtualtourism


First up this week we have the symbol of honour, courage, and loyalty. The Medjay are the sworn

protectors of the Pharaoh's and Bayek is the last of his kind to hold the role. This shot gives me 'Dark

Knight Rise’s' vibes with the sign of hope etched into the wall. Jack has a knack for capturing these

sorts of shots. Checkout the set below as they are all stunning.

2. Woodland


Game: Assassin’s Creed Valhalla


VP Artist: @NoviKaiba23


This week's second shot just needs to be framed and put up on the wall. I can't get over how

beautiful this photo is. It also amazes me how games can look like this; the world building is

phenomenal. I love the colours, especially the deep red of the flowers. The rays of light breaking

through the trees make this shot so magical.

The Ones Who Came Before Photo of the Week:


Judge: Michael Doyle - TOWCB Strategist


I love that this image is a metaphor for the brotherhood. The atmosphere of the image is calm and unassuming, whilst the shadows cast by the ancient trees give off a sense of protection for the wildlife they shelter beneath them. The misty air beyond the tree line, hiding what possible mysteries lay beyond. Everything together, including the elegance of the Stag, mirror the principles of the brotherhood.


 

3. Ikaros


Game: Assassin’s Creed Odyssey


VP Artist: @WallyDaGreat66


Next up we have a wonderful collage of Ikaros shots. It's strikingly put together, showcasing The

Eagle Bearers favourite companion. I am impressed with the variety of angles that Wally has used to

capture the eagle. It’s great to see different kinds of VP and I am always blown away by what this

community produces.



 

4. League of Assassin’s


Game: Assassin’s Creed Odyssey


VP Artist: @KeenEyeVP


I had no choice but to feature photo number four. I love absolutely everything about it.

The atmosphere is tense, the outfit devilish. In a game based around a Spartan this shot shows that

the Assassin look still rules. This sort of capture makes me so excited for Assassin's Creed Mirage's

photo-mode. Checkout the others in this set to get a feel for how Troy created this shot.

5. Sunset


Game: Assassin’s Creed Odyssey


VP Artist: @RenanVP_Alt


This shot brings the article to a fitting close. What a fantastic sunset in Assassin's Creed Odyssey. The

positioning of this capture is just beautiful. It feels like you are sat on the water watching the sun go

down. The little details of the landscape caught in the background really help make this shot. Posted

for the #MinimalFriday theme, I think Renan has perfectly fulfilled that brief.



 

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!
