With rapidly increasing production costs for photographic shoots it is more important than ever for photographers to protect themselves against re-shoot costs should they be unable to produce the required images due to reasons beyond their control.
We have a reshoot policy for photographers designed using Chubb’s expertise in the film industry and Williamson Carson’s vast knowledge of the photographic industry.
We have a Liability Cover with Hiscox Insurance Co, a leading UK insurer.
It is a legal requirement to have Employers Liability cover to protect anyone you employ.
This would include models, assistants, volunteers, work experience people or anyone else under your care or control.
Cover is available to re-instate Images following loss or damage of the photographers’ book.
The insurance extends to cover while your book is in the possession of your agent, advertising agencies, photo editors or others.
We have a specially designed Professional Indemnity policy for photographers, agents and stills producers with Hiscox Insurance Co, a leading UK insurer.
The policy is designed to protect against any errors & omissions that may be made.
The main covers under the policy are:
A) Negligence or breach of duty or care.
B) Infringement of intellectual property rights including copyright, patent, trademark or moral rights or any act of passing-off
C) Dishonesty of your individual partners, directors, employees or self-employed freelancers directly contracted to you and under your supervision
With image copyright now belonging to the photographer, libraries are becoming increasingly important as a source of income in both the short and long term
We can offer cover for your loss or shortfall in income suffered following part or total destruction of your library, including assistance in reinstating your library.

The company has been handling insurance for my photographic business for a number of years during which time I have had to make two claims. Both times the claim has been handled with great efficiency, the latest being settled with payment agreed in 36 hours. You can’t ask for more than that. It gives me great peace of mind to know that any problems can be taken care of without additional worries following the accident.
