Insurance for amateur photographers?

You love taking photos, perhaps spending hours to snap the perfect shot or just simply capturing the joy of life from behind the lens. You’ve invested your hard-earned money into buying the best photographic equipment you can in order to achieve the best results possible. 

It may be “just a hobby”, but if being an amateur photographer is important to you, how would you feel – and how would you cope if your valuable kit was stolen or damaged? Could you afford to replace it? 

What if you were blamed for someone tripping over your equipment or damage to property? Even if you’re not being paid for your work, you could be held personally liable for an injury caused by the activities you carry out.

Our clients often ask us:

Amateur photographer insurance is designed for people just like you – to provide cover for your much loved and valuable photographic equipment and personal liability insurance.

It all depends on the cover you choose. We will help you understand the options available and only pay for what you need.

Personal liability insurance protects you in the event that you are held responsible for bodily injury or property damage to a third party arising from your actions as an amateur photographer.

You can extend cover on your equipment whilst away from home to any territory worldwide (except where the UK Foreign Office advises against all but essential travel, and specifically excluded countries). By designing your cover in this way, you can keep your premium cost down by not having to insure all items away from your home all of the time if you do not need such a wide scope of cover.

Yes, subject to status, the premium may be paid in instalments by 0% interest direct debit, helping you with your cash flow.

Yes, depending upon the type of policy, the amount of cover you have and the terms and conditions applicable, including whether you have cover for items left in your vehicle overnight we can offer a 0% interest direct debit on our policies, helping you to spread the cost of your cover at no additional cost. We will explain the extent of cover and the terms. Your policy documents will specify the details.

If you decide to turn your hobby into your day job, then talk to us about upgrading to professional photographers insurance to protect against the additional risks running a business brings.

As long as you’re not being hired, paid or rewarded for your photography, then amateur photographers insurance will cover you. If you receive any form of payment for your services, then you should consider professional photographers insurance

Our policy provides cover for up to 90 days per trip worldwide as standard (except where the UK Foreign Office advises against all but essential travel, and specifically excluded countries.)
