As the shutters come down on another year, our staff photographers pick their favourite images captured by their own moving shutters
24 December 2012

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.

Driven this week

  • Genesis G70
    First Drive
    22 September 2017
    Based on the Kia Stinger, Genesis' new G70 saloon shows plenty of promising signs that it could be a hit in Europe
  • Lamborghini Aventador S
    First Drive
    22 September 2017
    Still visceral and dramatic as ever, but does the vast number of mechanical changes and tweaks help make the Lamborghini Aventador S more engaging?
  • Renault Koleos
    Car review
    22 September 2017
    Renault’s new crossover sees the Koleos name return, attached to an SUV of a quite different stripe
  • Nissan X-Trail
    First Drive
    21 September 2017
    On our first chance to get the facelifted Nissan X-Trail on UK roads, the petrol proves a viable alternative, although for outright pulling power the 2.0 dCi is the better bet
  • Alfa Romeo Stelvio 2.2d 210
    First Drive
    21 September 2017
    Most powerful diesel version of the Alfa Romeo Stelvio is swift and more frugal than its closest rivals, but makes less sense than the range-topping petrol version
