What insurance do photographers and videographers need?
Public liability insurance
It's often a contractual requirement for in this line of work, but if you are interacting with the public and clients your top priority should be public liability cover. This ensures that you’re protected in the event of any personal injury or property damage claims made against you.
Photography and video equipment insurance
Another essential cover, contents and equipment cover protects all your specialist photo and video equipment and other kit, including laptops, phones, documents and cash. Most of our claims are settled within 48 hours so we will get you up and running again in no time. It also includes worldwide cover if you temporarily travel abroad.
Professional indemnity insurance
Our professional indemnity insurance is one of the most innovative covers available online. It provides advanced, all-round protection for photographers and covers mistakes arising from your services. It includes compensation payments if your client suffers financial loss, fines, contract disputes, legal costs, IP and copyright disputes.
Media liability insurance
Automatically included within our professional indemnity and cyber insurance, media liability is important for photographers as it covers for negligence in media content and advertising, including websites, blogs and social media. Importantly, it covers claims for IP infringement, breach of confidentiality, right to privacy, and breach of comparative advertising regulations.
Employers' liability insurance
Employers' liability (EL) cover is a legal requirement for UK companies, regardless of whether your team is made up of temporary or part-time staff. It gives your team reassurance, while protecting your business.

This will depend on the individual covers and cover limits you select, but our cover for photographers starts at £7.58 a month.
Do freelance photographers need insurance?
Though not a legal requirement, freelance photographers may find that certain contracts, sets or venues require you to have a certain level of cover, generally including public liability insurance and professional indemnity insurance. Many photographers also choose to take out contents and equipment cover.
Do I need public liability insurance as a photographer?
Public liability insurance is a popular cover for photographers. This is because a lot of photography work involves working with and around members of the public; from clients to models. An accident involving you or your equipment and a member of the public resulting in injury or property damage could land you with expensive legal fees and compensation costs.
Why is professional indemnity insurance important for photographers?
Professional indemnity insurance for any professional working under contracts with clients or other businesses. For example, if a client were to sue you due to being unhappy with your work (even if you feel you fulfilled the terms of your contract), you may benefit from the protection of professional indemnity cover which would cover the associated legal fees and compensation costs.
