Book: Volume 4 – Automotive Photography is HERE!


11 Feb

It’s been about 18 months since I published Volume 3 of my imaginatively titled Automotive Photography photo book series, so that meant it was about time to put together Volume 4! I’ve just uploaded it to my online store and it’s now ready to order (not that I really expect anyone to want a copy, considering prices start at $123 plus gst!). CLICK HERE to buy.

For everyone else who just wants a look inside, you can see the online preview below:

The book is a 160-page, hard cover, bound, large format item and if you tick the premium option, it boasts top quality lustre pearl paper, premium end papers and a nice glossy dust jacket! However, again, at over $200, it’s really only meant for my own amusement. Either way, have a look and enjoy!

Photo Book: Automotive Photography Vol. 2 Now Available

Automotive Photography Vol. 2

To celebrate Hosking Industries’ fourth birthday, we knuckled down and finally finished the second volume of our Automotive Photography series of photo book, imaginatively called ‘Automotive Photography Vol. 2 2011-2013’.

It’s simply created through Blurb.com, but comes in at 160-pages like Vol. 1 and features a hard cover, dust jacket and Blurb’s top line of paper. It’s not cheap, but there’s nothing like having a real book of your own work in the house to look through and look back on down the track. While we don’t expect anyone else to want one at around AUS$200 a copy, you can have a look through the entire book for free by CLICKING HERE or on the image above. Hope you all like it!

2011: Australia’s Year in Music – We’re Included!


08 Aug

For the second year running, one of our images from the previous year’s concert shooting in and around Sydney for the AU Review has been included in their annual Australia’s Year in Music book. Last year we had a few images appear, but this year just one made it, with a shot of Suicide Silence on stage at the Bald Faced Stag Hotel in Leichardt, NSW on September 10, 2011.

I remember the gig vividly: they were originally meant to be playing the Roundhouse, but the gig got moved at the last minute to this tiny sweat box on Parramatta Rd. The night outside was freezing, but step a few feet inside the front door and you were dripping with perspiration. The show was all-ages and the room was full to the brim with angsty teens and twenty-somethings. I arrived just as the support band was finishing up – hormone-drunk dudes flailing their arms around wildly and moving around in some retarded attempt to form a circle pit, but probably just hoping to hit someone.

Suicide Silence had been here the previous year for the No Sleep Til’ Festival and they put on an excellent show there. It was no different here at the Bald Faced Stag, where as headliners, they owned the show and punished the rabid audience with a set comprising songs from their catalogue at deafening sonic – and subsonic – levels. I think singer Mitch Lucker enjoyed being so close to the crowd: with no mosh barrier, but a high stage level, he could get up close and personal without too much fear of jumpers.
