Amélie's creative journey consisted of studies in fine arts and 3D, working as a model, exploring various dance styles and martial arts, and riding motorcycles. When she travels, she likes to take pictures that are off the classic of what would be expected of a certain landmark. She finds it interesting to bring a new vision of something everyone has seen so many times, and believes the same applies for in-game photography. Amélie will be looking for in-game photos with out-of-the-box composition or mood, that makes it look like it could be an indie music video or a sleek high fashion ad.
Jonas is a French journalist, photographer and photography director. Since 2019, he has been working as Managing Director at Blind Magazine and has previously worked as editor-in-chief at the magazines L’Œil de la Photographie and Camera. Recently, he has developed interest for in-game photography, and will be looking for the best stories games can tell through images taken within Ubisoft games.
Jack Harrison (aka VirtualTourism ) is a virtual photographer from England whose in-game photo from Ghost Recon Wildlands was a top-20 winner of the 2022 Ubisoft Photomode competition. His passion for photography blossomed in 2017, when he discovered virtual photography through his love for video games. In his view, a good in-game photo lies in strong composition, lighting, engaging subject matter, and emotional impact.
Shauna has been part of the video game industry for nearly a decade, and currently works as a Community Manager for Ubisoft in Newcastle Upon Tyne, England. She studied Game Design, production, and photography, and has recently created a community on X for virtual photographers where she runs weekly themes for members to share their photos. Her favorite in-games pictures are the ones that give the world a new perspective and grab the attention to detail in a way which makes you unsure of which game it was taken from.
