All Risks Photography Insurance

All Risks Photography Insurance covers you for physical loss and damage to your equipment. As a photographer, you should ensure your cameras and equipment are insured on an ‘All Risks’ insurance policy.

What is All Risks Photography Insurance?

An 'All Risks Photography' policy is broader than a specified perils policy. Typically, an ‘All Risks policy’ covers ANY ‘loss, damage or destruction unless specifically excluded. Under a traditional specified perils policy, your equipment is ONLY covered for specified perils such as fire, theft, flood etc. Your claim must fall under a specified peril to be covered by the policy.

Under an ‘All Risks’ policy, ANY damage or loss to your cameras is covered, except a short list of exclusions such as vermin damage, general wear and tear etc. Under an All Risks photography insurance policy you have peace of mind your photographic equipment is covered for damage such as accidental damage, water damage and even accidental loss.

Under the photography insurance policy provided to our clients, ‘All Risks’ also means your equipment is covered not only in your studio and home but anywhere in the world unless otherwise stated. If your current photography insurance is not ‘All Risks’, it may not be covered outside of the studio or home.

Tom Carson and his team have been by my side from the get-go, guiding me through the intricacies of production insurance. I like it when he says to me “you don’t need this” or “you should have that” – it’s what you expect from a professional; solid advice, honed from years in the industry, that you can rely on utterly. – Catherine Collins Productions UK Ltd, Review From Trust Pilot

I've been dealing with Williamson Carson for over 20 years having been introduced to them through the Association of Photographers of which I'm a member. When I've had a claim, however complex, it has been dealt with quickly and efficiently and they very much work for you. They really understand the industry and just happen to be a great bunch of people to deal with.

Tom Carson & Williamson Carson have been my insurance brokers for over 15 years. The advice and cover they provides is both comprehensive and realistic. Tom's many years insuring the photographic and film industry means he is never fazed when I throw him last minute curve balls on shoots & on the 2 occasions I have needed my insurance it was dealt with swiftly & professionally. I highly recommend Tom and his team.
