Winning: Four Silver Awards at 2014 AIPP NSW State Competition

02 Jun

The 2014 AIPP Epson NSW Professional Photography Competition took place a couple of weeks ago in The Rocks, Sydney. Hosking Industries’ Ben Hosking entered six of his automotive images into the Commercial category of the competition – the first time he’s ever entered a photo competition. In the audience to watch the judging process, he watched as four of his six entered images were scored 80 or higher to receive Silver Awards (70-79 points equates to ‘professional standard’, 80-84 = Silver, 85-89 = Silver with Distinction etc). The other two images were in the high 70s.

This was enough to place Ben as one of two finalists in the Commercial Professional Photography category! He’ll now be entering the four Silver award images into the 2014 APPAs (Australian Professional Photography Awards) to see how they go on the national stage. Below are the four winning images.

Photo Book: Automotive Photography Vol. 2 Now Available

03 Feb

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, 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!

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! Picture of the Day: Robert’s Mazda FD RX7
