Action Plus Gears Up For Olympics, Launches New Website

Sports Imagery specialist Action Plus announces a number of changes leading up to the Olympics


Action Plus Sports Images are celebrating some significant milestones as we come to the summer of the 2012 Olympic Games in London. Firstly, the company has passed the 500,000 number of images in its digital archive, which is supported by over 10 million off-line images. All of the Action Plus images are sports related and cover over 300 different types of sports.

Importantly, as the image database has grown, Action Plus has launched a brand new website ( ) which provides the company and our clients with the ability to grow infinitely for expanded event coverage, faster and deeper search capabilities and secure downloads of single images, galleries of whole event coverage. Launched to provide superior services starting with coverage of the 2012 European Football Tournament in Poland/Ukraine, it will also serve the company well for the upcoming events at Wimbledon, Eastbourne, The R&A Open Golf and most importantly the 2012 Olympic Games.

In addition, specific galleries for larger events are now displayed directly on the home page for ease of access, while all recent events are displayed in a simple and easy to find page. Action Plus has obtained accreditation for all of the Olympic Games events with special interest in the events at the Olympic Stadium, Sailing, Equestrian, Marathon, Football (all 5 locations) and other external event locations.

Commenting,  MD Stephen Hearn said “With the Summer events including such an Iconic opportunity as the 2012 London Olympic Games,  we felt the need to provide our clients with a faster and better service online. The new web site provides that service and together with our newly implemented web-based image processor, we are now making pictures from events available within 5 minutes of them being shot by our on-site photographers.

In addition, we have expanded our pool of photographers to over 30 professionals and that expands our ability to cover more and provide faster turnaround”A significant milestone has also been passed early this year as the company celebrated its 35th year in business. With over 35 years of coverage of all the largest and most important events in the sporting calendar each year, ask us for that special image as we probably have it or can find it in our archives.

Action Plus recently moved its operations offices from London to Tring in Hertfordshire with all telephone, email and other contacts staying the same. Tel: 0207 403 1558.
