WE ARE A CREATIVE PHOTOGRAPHY TEAM


Specialized in covering motorsport events and photographing fast-action sports


About us


We are Anton Anestiev and Yana Stancheva, two creative photographers passionate about motorsports, extreme sports, adventures and travelling.

We’ve photographed under our brand Actiongraphers a wide range of events and sport disciplines – rally raid, hard enduro, snowboarding, skateboarding, motocross, superbike, NASCAR, drift, trophy events etc., but offroad rally raid is where we thrive and where we spend the biggest part of the year, travelling between Europe, Africa and the Middle East.

We’re a trusted partner to some of the most popular brands supporting motorsports, such as Red Bull and Monster Energy and every year we complete dozens of projects for them, from whole championships to special events and athlete’s photo shoots.

We’re also a long-term partner to multiple media outlets and deliver high-quality editorial content from the event we cover.

Over the years, we’ve established ourselves as one of the leading photographers in the rally world and trendsetters in motorsport photography, and our work has been featured in books and media publications.

Outside of motorsport photography, in 2022, a photo made in Kenya while covering the East African Classic Safari Rally brought Anton Anestiev award in a prestigious National Geographic contest.

Who do we work for?

If you’re an event organiser, you know how important is the proper coverage of your event. We are specialised in covering motorsport and extreme events from the desert of Saudi Arabia to the icy peaks of Canada.

We work with magazines and other types of media to help them get the best editorial content for their readers. Our photos have been regularly published in various magazines in Europe and USA.

Sponsors

If you’re an event sponsor, we can help you get the right selection of images that puts the focus on your branding or sponsored riders during the event. We’ve been working closely with brands like Monster Energy, Red Bull, Dacia and Nissan to help them get the best shots from their events.

What our clients say


Dr. Björn Schulz
It is not often to see the pure soul of a rally and the dynamics of a car being captured in the perfect moment! Yana and Anton live for that moment and can transport it to the spectator with an ease! It is always a pleasure to work with those professional, positively crazy, Bulgarian Photo Enthusiasts!

"We just love your photos and the way how you capture emotions and the essence of situations. The warmth radiating from the photo with Alex Kovatchev and us during the opening ceremony is exceptional. It captures what the Breslau Balkan is all about – at least for us."

It's not often you get to see the masterminds behind the lens of a camera, so I am pleased to know the talented photographers from Actiongraphers who spend the whole day out in the field while we race making sure they find the perfect shot, then in the evening they go back to their hotels and work till late hours editing and making sure we get to see their work and proof of our days work... Without them we wouldn't be able to portray or showcase our sport. Thank you for what you do and for always capturing the moment, I may say it's always picture perfect.
