We all want the best camera – so surely we need the best camera insurance to go along with it. After all, we sink serious cash into our photographic kit, and if the worst happens and it gets lost, accidentally damaged, or even stolen, you want the proper protection in place.

Public liability insurance is also necessary for some photographers, covering you in the case of a member of the public (or client) getting injured or their property damaged as a result of your photography. This type of insurance is wise for wedding, portrait and event pros, or those running workshops in a public space.
