Business Best Practices - Photographer's Insurance

One of the most important components of your professional photography business is insurance. It protects you, your equipment, and your clients and should be a part of your business operations.

This workshop will cover many risk exposures photographers face, including general liability, professional liability (errors & omissions), failure to deliver photographic products liability, loss of business income, equipment coverage (with an explanation of actual cash value versus replacement cost value), data extraction coverage, mechanical breakdown coverage, etc.
