We’ve worked with Williamson Carson for well over 18 years now and I can safely say that their care and attention to detail in dealing with our film shoots has been massively  instrumental in the success of the company.  I’m not sure that any other brokerage has a better understanding of the intricacies of our business than Tom and his associates. We feel very lucky to be working with them and we look forward to continuing the relationship for many years to come. We regard them as trusted advisors, consummate professionals and, most importantly, really good friends.

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.
