There are many insurance options which would benefit your photographers business, and public liability is one of the most significant. This protects you if your work ends up damaging a client’s property or injuring a client or member of the public. For example, you may need to pay compensation if a client trips over your tools and is injured or you accidentally damage a customer’s carpet with your muddy work boots.

Claims such as this can cost a small fortune but having public liability cover means you won’t be responsible for paying any of the resulting expenses. You can purchase this as part of our automatic package, which also covers you for financial loss, legal expenses, and more.

Other relevant insurance policies for a photographers business include employer’s liability, which is a legal requirement for anybody who employs staff, and professional indemnity insurance.  Here at Tradesman Saver we have all the coverage you may need as a photographer and you can get your quote online in minutes.

What’s included with our Automatic Cover

Photographer’s Public Liability Insurance

Purchasing photographer’s insurance can be a bit of a mission. It can be hard enough to find insurance at a reasonable price, but when you start researching into the subject, the sheer volume of insurance terminology to contend with can quickly turn it into an arduous task – which is particularly annoying when you want to just focus on running and growing your business. Fortunately, there’s only one insurance cover you really need to know about to make the right choice when buying your insurance, and that’s public liability insurance. Public liability insurance is imperative when you’re taking out photographer’s insurance – it’s essentially the bread and butter of your insurance sandwich, and it helps to make all the other components work in unison by covering the bulkload of any potential claims you might come up against. Simply put, it covers injury to third parties and any damage to their property, and it can be applied to both clients and members of the public. It covers situations like clients tripping over your equipment, and it’s a really essential cover for the continued health and success of your business.

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.
