Hoss Photography is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year. Having lived in the village since 1988, Hoss qualified as a professional photographer and set up business in 1994.
Since then he’s gone from strength to strength and is well known locally not only for his portrait and wedding photography with so many families over the years, but also for being seen out and about covering events for MyLocalNews.
Local master perfumer, John Bailey, was their first ever client and still uses Hoss to this day.
He is proud to have won at least one award each and every year he’s been in business, in every aspect of photography from portraits and weddings, to commercial and press.
His most recent award was for winning the Christmas Themed Competition at the Master Photographers Association.
Hoss Photography remains dedicated to helping schools and local organisations to raise much needed funds and are always happy to hear from anyone with a good cause.
Hoss gained his Fellowship of the Master Photographers Association and the British Institute of Professional Photography, and later became a Qualified European Photographer which ranks him amongst the top 5% of professional photographers across Europe. He regularly lectures and judges internationally, and was invited by the Prince of Dubai to judge and speak at the Hamdan International Photography Awards.
Hoss said: “When our clients see the results and our status within the industry, they’re surprised that as a husband and wife team we work in a studio in our garden. We’re definitely a hidden gem.”
Their decision to move from their high street studio in Edgware to a garden studio at home was a very deliberate move.
Tracy is Hoss’ wife and business manager. She said: “We wanted to enjoy our time with our two boys while they were growing up; and we also wanted to move away from the rather tired image of photography studios to create a more relaxed boutique atmosphere, and I feel we’ve really achieved that.”
