Tradesman Saver’s Public Liability Cover For Photographers

Our standard cover is:

  • Up to £5 million cover for public and products liability
  • £10,000 cover for any financial loss (£50K cover optional)
  • Worldwide liability cover for temporary work abroad for up to 14 days (excluding the USA and Canada)

Taking out photography insurance with Tradesman Saver gives you access to five separate policies in one automatic cover package, including legal expenses and financial loss. Photographers public liability insurance is potentially the most crucial of them, offering you financial cover in the event that your equipment causes harm or damage to a third party, or third party property. Without this protection in place, you could be forced to pay a huge amount in compensation but, even if your camera, lights or tripod is to blame, our public liability insurance can prevent you from being out of pocket.

Our additional cover can be bought as extras for your primary policy, giving you a tailor-made plan to suit your needs. Employer’s liability insurance, for example, is legally required for all businesses who hire other staff. Possibly the most important insurance policy for any photographer, though, is tools and equipment cover. Since you can’t do your job without your camera, this policy will help you finance any replacement gear in the event of damage, theft or loss.

It Shouldn’t Happen To A Photographer

Here are some examples of claims:


Example 1

You’re taking photos at a wedding and have your tripod out to take a bridal group shot. You place it to one side after you’re done, to take photos free-hand, but unfortunately one of the guests trips over your tripod, injuring themselves. They sue you for compensation. Fortunately, your public liability insurance can really help here – it will cover the costs of the compensation and legal costs for you, so you don’t get left out of pocket.

Example 2

You’re hired to be the photographer at an event. You nip to the toilet and leave your camera in your equipment bag, but when you return, you find your camera is missing. Your tools & equipment insurance is your saving grace in this situation – your insurer will pay out the cost of replacing your equipment, so your business doesn’t have to suffer because someone else has sticky fingers.

Is my photography equipment covered abroad?

Am I covered if I leave my camera alone while working?

Yes, our policy provides cover for your equipment anywhere in the UK on an all risks basis. The only thing to be aware of is that there is an increased excess of £250 for any losses from an unattended vehicle.
