The Crew 2 Photo Op Guide
Want to find the Photo Ops and complete the objectives? This The Crew 2 Photo Op Guide will tell you where to find the different photo opportunities and what photographs you need to take in order to complete the Photo Op objective and receive the rewards.
When checking the locations below, head to the area marked by the player icon (red circle). The actual icon for the Photo Op’s is always slightly higher than the location itself. If you are struggling with any specific objectives, make sure you pin the Photo Op from the activities menu’s to keep the objectives on the screen.
How To Take The Correct Photograph
When you are given an objective to photograph something, you need to make sure you are photographing the correct objective, and that objective must be the focal point of the shot. Check below for two examples. If the shot is of the correct objective and it’s going to count, the objective will be highlighted in green in the upper left. If it’s incorrect, it will be grey.

Wildlife Photo OpsUnlike the other Photo Ops, the Wildlife Photo Ops are scattered throughout and can be found in multiple places. We have just listed the ones we discovered that were the easiest, the target found closest to the Photo Op message. The best way to do this is to ensure the objective is pinned so it shows on your screen. Then, when you are driving around, wait for the objective text to turn grey. This will indicate that you have visible sight of the animal, you just have to find it with the camera.
Take a photograph of nearby Ox, they look similar to cows.
