Videographer insurance

What is videographer insurance?

You’re the one hired to capture the moment. You work with a broad range of camera angles, across a range of devices to get eye-catching footage that makes audiences sit up and pay attention.

Maybe you create short video content for social media campaigns, or longer-length work for adverts. You could film weddings or special events like festivals, expos or conferences.

You could create short video content for social media campaigns, or longer-length work for adverts. You could film weddings or special events like festivals, expos or conferences. Whatever you do, you’ll use a broad range of equipment, expensive cameras and devices to do it.

Protect them with AXA’s business insurance for videographers, which’ll offer cover to protect you in case of third-party injury or damage, and legal expenses cover to help with lawyer’s fees and compensation costs.

Why do videographers need insurance?

No matter how hard you plan, accidents can happen. Perhaps a camera is damaged or stolen when you’re travelling to a shoot?

Maybe a guest is injured on a set as a result of your rigging equipment, and you’re found to be responsible. Would you be able to pay legal and compensation fees out of your own pocket?

Business insurance for videographers can help protect you against the risks of third party injury or damage, as well as covering you and the work that you do.
