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.
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.
If your team is participating in an extreme event and you want to get a dedicated coverage of your team’s performance, get in touch with us. A good coverage brings sponsors and helps the fans experience all these special moments with their favourite athletes.
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.
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.
