Getting insurance as a photographer
When you’re hired for a photo shoot, you’ll work with your clients to carefully plan the key moments that need to be captured. But things don’t always go to plan on the day. Sometimes the images aren’t what the client wanted, logistical problems could get in the way and your equipment could be accidentally damaged or stolen. Hiscox photographer insurance provides peace of mind for you and for your clients, whatever happens.
Why insurance matters for photographers
Not being on the same page
Photoshoots occasionally go wrong – as a professional, you’ll go through the plans with your client several times, but there’s always the chance that the results aren’t what they wanted. If it turns out that there’s a misunderstanding or a discrepancy with something you thought was agreed, you might find the client takes legal action against you.
Dealing with the unexpected
As a photographer, it’s highly likely that you spend a lot of time travelling between jobs. You can’t always account for traffic or for being let down by public transport and while that’s the same for any profession, as a photographer, it could mean you end up missing vital moments. If you miss the cake cutting at a client’s wedding, whether it’s your fault or not, they may well make a claim against you.
Lost or stolen equipment
Camera equipment is the most important part of your set-up. If it’s stolen from your car on the way to a location shoot, or it’s damaged in an accident, your entire business is at risk. Photography equipment insurance means Hiscox will be there to help with the cost of replacements or repairs.
