We're all very proud of what we have achieved so far and we're very grateful to the community for their continued support. We try and keep reinveting ourselves and The Captured Collective to bring you new ideas to feature your work the best way we can.



The Captured Collective was founded in 2016, as gamers ourselves we share the same passion for visual art and photography (both real & virtual).

We wanted to create a sharing hub that features a large variety of visual arts, supporting and showcasing the community’s beautiful work. Showing different techniques and ideas that help inspire artists to try new things and help them to grow. Since The Collective supports these mediums we feel it creates cross inspirations within these art forms.

As we continue to grow we expanded to Twitter. Supporting the community with retweets and features. This is when we  introduced themes as a way to further inspire the community to try new things and help them grow and improve their skills.

The Captured Collective is now a small yet strong team of three sharing the same passion for visual arts. We’re all very proud of what we have achieved so far and we’re very grateful to the community for their continued support, especially the Japanese community.

We invite you to take part in our weekly and monthly theme challenges on Twitter,  Instagram and now BlueSky!

The Captured Collective has always been less about the numbers and more about the people. We highly encourage all of you to share your work with us and the community using our tag #TheCapturedCollective:

  • Real Photography
  • Virtual Photography
  • Visual Art Mediums

Be kind. Play Safe. Stay True. 


Around the world of Games

Who better than the Virtual Photography community to capture the many facets of beauty and life of our real world. The Captured Collective’s Virtual Geographic pays tribute to the creators and the deep passion developers bring to the world of video games.

Through this community project, we highlight the work of all Virtual Photography artists within the pages of a quality magazine. This is why, in order to reach a wider audience and be accessible to everyone, we called on the Japanese community to translate our first edition, as well as the following ones. We even plan to translate our next issues into French as well, thus covering three major languages.
If you are interested in the project and would like to help us expand our magazine into other languages, contact us!



The Captured Collective has always welcomed all forms of art, to keep Virtual Photography and real life Photography on the same level of creativity and imagination, one inspiring the other, one learning from the other.

Our community counts very talented people and our goal is to put them on stage so the whole world can meet them, be inspired by them and learn from them. We all have the same passion for video games and POP culture and so many different ways to express it.

Be Photography your initial hobby or your new battlefield, whether you’re already a pro or just an amateur, share your shots with us now! Take part by tagging #TCCphotography every day.
