As a Professional Photographer be it a Wedding, Commercial, Fashion or Advertising Photographer, you will inevitably encounter the general public. Noways most studios and locations will require you to have Public Liability to protect them against any damage you might cause to their property.


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.


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.

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.
