Feature Cars: Phill Lander’s VW Syncro and Doka


09 Feb

Our photo shoot on Phill Lander’s VW Syncro and Doka is out now in issue 41 of VW Magazine Australia. Be sure to pick up a copy at your local newsagent and check it out.

Phil’s Syncro T3 was bought brand new in 1990 and has a tiny 58,000 original kilometers on the clock! It’s truly a museum piece, despite Phill driving it all over the country when he first bought it. The Doka was a tradies work hack and has couple hundred thousand on the odometer, but you wouldn’t know it. It’s also in pristine condition and drives like a dream.

As always, we’ve got a series of FREE desktop wallpaper images for you to enjoy. Simply CLICK HERE or on the thumbnails below to visit our Flickr page where all the goodies lay in wait for your visit.

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: Tony’s 1967 1300 Volkswagen Beetle


14 Nov

Our first photo shoot for VW Magazine Australia came out last week: a feature on Tony’s immaculately restored 1967 1300 Volkswagen Beetle. Photographing unmodified vehicles is certainly something new to Hosking Industries, but we enjoyed the change and the feature looks great.

Tony has a long history of modifying Rotary-powered Mazdas, but with a young family and a few more years under his belt, the Beetle is now the automotive love of his life. Be sure to read the entire story in the November-January issue, which is on sale now.

As always, we’ve got a series of FREE desktop wallpaper images for you to enjoy and strobist fans will find our lighting information and EXIF data on each image’s caption, too (although only the detail shots used off-camera flash).
