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!
