As the shutters come down on another year, our staff photographers pick their favourite images captured by their own moving shutters

Autocar's world-beating photography is one of the ingredients that keeps Autocar ahead of the competition. Our road tests and features are shot by our very own snappers, Stan Papior and Stuart Price, alongside the best contributors in the business.

Here, Stan and Stuart take a look back through their archives to deliver their favourite shots of 2012.

Meet the snappers:

Stan Papior - Chief photographer Stan recently celebrated 25 years as an Autocar lensman - a remarkable achievement given the gruelling weekly schedule of motor shows, press launches and group tests. He’s been responsible for some of the most iconic images ever to grace the pages of this magazine.

Stuart Price - Stuart is never happier than when he’s dangling precariously from the boot of a moving photographer’s car in a bid to capture that perfect tracking shot. When he’s not sharp shooting, he’s a long-suffering Aston Villa FC fan and enjoys expounding his theories about the mysteries of the universe.

Nice photos spoilt by huge water mark right in the middle! So much for enjoying them as wallpaper! Discreetly putting them on the side or at the top/bottom of the shot actually advertising the magazine and source would have been far more beneficial, as they are, they only hinder enjoyment of a good photograph.

Trust your readers.

These photos are perfectly awesome! How I wish I can also have the same photos. I am just a new photographer and I know I have a lot to learn. Nate Hill, aspiring photographer.

    Peugeot's given the 308 the engine from the 208 GTi 30th and some chassis upgrades; we find out if the changes bring a bit of old-school Peugeot hot-hatch magic to this likeable family hatch.

    The Seat Leon X-Perience is the closest thing to an SUV that you can buy with a Seat badge for now, blending estate practicality with off-road ability
