Happy Birthday to Us: We’re Four!


01 Feb

Woot! We just realised it’s February 1. That means it’s Hosking Industries’ fourth birthday! Established on February 1, 2010, Hosking Industries was officially lodged with the government as a company for founder (OK, so it’s just me!) Ben Hosking to operate under, having gone freelance after seven years with Express Publications in Silverwater, NSW Australia. And boy, have those four years gone fast!

A quick glance at our records shows that in that time we’ve photographed just over 170 cars and bikes, written more than 550 articles for publication and shot over 30 gigs (we’ll be celebrating our birthday by photographing Periphery and Animals as Leaders tonight!).

The last 12 months saw us pick up a number of new clients, including Heavy Duty magazine, Cruzin and Gasoline, Muscle Mustangs, Vette, Camaro Now and VW Magazine Australia. Perhaps the biggest new client we hooked up with has been Custom Made Media Australia. With CMMA we’ve been able to work with Australian Home Technology and limit’d, as well as taking the helm of their new photography magazine, InFocus Australasia – an iPad native publication that is doing very well so far, 10 issues in.

To all our new and existing customers, a huge thanks for your continued business and support. Here’s to another four successful years!

Feature Car: ‘Eleanor’-Inspired Mustang Fastback


06 Nov

We almost fell over when we first saw the cover of issue 16 of Gasoline magazine carrying two of our photo shoots on the front. One of those was this incredible ‘Eleanor’-Inspired Mustang Fastback that was unveiled at the 2013 MotorEx back in July.

The subject of an intensive two-year rebuild that saw the car worked on almost 24/7, there’s very little of the original car left besides some of the core beneath. And watch those body lines, because they’re sharp! Pick up a copy of issue 16 of Gasoline from all good newsagents – and probably some bad ones, too.

CLICK HERE or on the thumbnails below to view and download six FREE desktop wallpaper images of the Mustang! Photography fans will find our EXIF data on each image as well as our lighting information. Enjoy!
