Insurance to shield every shoot

We know your equipment is the lifeblood of your business. And when you rent it out, you have to trust others will take as much care of it as you would. Sometimes, this just isn’t the case – so it’s crucial that your kit is properly covered, both in your care and out on hire.

At PhotoShield, not only can we provide Fraudulent Hire cover for the assets you hire out* but we can also offer a generous level of alternative hire cover. This means, in the event your equipment gets damaged, you’re covered for the costs of hiring in alternative equipment to keep your business running.

Plus, we make it easy for your clients to take out cover at short notice, even when most insurance brokers are closed – enabling you to take more bookings. Simply direct your clients to , who offer an online 24/7 short period insurance system. Custom-built for the creative sector, this system allows your clients to buy cover instantly online and automatically generates the relevant documents – giving both you and your clients the peace of mind you need.

* subject to meeting the conditions under this section within the policy. You can find out more about these conditions when applying for a quote.

Client Spotlight
Victoria Jane Photography

Photo description: This is actually a photograph of my Daughter. She absolutely loves dance and sunflowers, so we thought we would combine the two!

The sunflower field was only in the next village, so one evening we took a drive there with the camera, flashes and trampoline (to give her the height above the sunflowers).

We took quite a few images, however this is my favourite.
