InFocus Insurance Blog Launched


Here at InFocus Insurance, we’re often asked to supply advice articles by industry titles or asked our opinions on topical issues affecting the photography industry. 

We thought the time was right to launch or own dedicated blog where you can catch up with the latest news and views.  Check it out at:

Is your studio covered?

Here at InFocus, we’re insuring a growing number of studio photographers who come to us for a competitive quote.  In response to this we’ve launched a specialist policy, InFocus Studio, especially for studio photographers working in all areas.  Whether you’re a fashion, commercial, industrial or social photographer, we’ll make sure you get the best quote.

Do photographers need run-off cover?

Before you close your business, make sure no-one can ruin your retirement. We normally recommend twelve months cover as a minimum and six years as the ideal. Cover bought for longer spells isn’t that common but it’s a growing area for us. The risk of claims usually tails off with time unless you have a Groomzilla on your books! No-one wants to be stung by a claim from their past.
