Safeguarding professional photographers: are you protected?


It's often in the back of your mind when you start to tally up just how much your entire photography equipment kit is worth, and start imagining all of the things that could go wrong, and potentially put you out of business for awhile ...

However, professional photographers can breathe a sigh of relief and be secure in the knowledge that their equipment, and the collateral that is essential to their everyday business, is safe and protected. Rothbury Insurance Brokers’ customized Focus Plus plan has continued to evolve since its inception 10 years ago, and now it’s added items such as drones to the list of equipment and situational needs it protects.

Photographers who have delved into the depths of underwater photography — or reached the heights of aerial photography — will be able to arrange insurance for their specific needs. The protection you receive may cover anywhere you are or travel to in New Zealand, and Rothbury can extend this to worldwide cover when required.

The Focus Plus plan, which has the support of NZIPP and AIPA, is all about catering to the unique needs that a professional photography business requires, which include such things as vehicles, buildings and studios, props and lighting paraphernalia, and the equipment you use on a daily basis.
