Our next stop was Coventry…

The free event was held at the Ricoh Arena – home of Coventry City Football Club.  As ever, there was a great turn out from a host of professionals from across the photography industry.

Seminar topics covered included; moving beyond  Photoshop, the use of flash photography at weddings and marketing  tips.

‘Befriend a hotel’ masterclass

The Guild of Photographers is holding a masterclass suitable for all photographers.

Commercial photography is a growth market that can be taken advantage of. 

One way to do this is by teaming up with a local hotel.  Savvy photographers offer hotels photos to display on their walls in order to gain exposure, or team up with the hotel to offer discounts to wedding parties.

Photovision Roadshow

Yesterday, the InFocus team exhibited at the Photovision Roadshow at Manchester United Football Stadium.  The Roadshow promotes innovation and excellence in the photographic industry.   The event brought together thousands of professionals from all areas of the industry, from software providers to the Master Photographers Association.

On the day, we spoke to hundreds of photographers about their insurance needs and held a competition to win a year’s free insurance.  Watch this space to see who the winner is!

 

Insurance claim is a drop in the ocean

Last week, one of our photographers got in touch to say he’d had an accident and all his equipment had been ruined.  Rob, a sports and events photographer was standing in the water taking an image of the canoe slalom.  The photographer stumbled and to his horror, all his gear fell into the water.  We knew Rob would be unable to carry out his work until he could replace the equipment.  Rob called us straight away and within 48 hours we we

Wedding goes up in smoke

The story of unlucky couple Andrew Winter and Jodi Dryden hit the headlines this week.  The couple’s house was devastated five weeks before their wedding ceremony was due to take place last year.  They postponed the wedding, only for their reception venue to burn to the ground five months later – and then the royal wedding was arranged for the same day.

Easy insurance claim for top wedding photographer

We received a nice letter from John Paine, a wedding photographer in Dorset (lovely part of the world) thanking us for our role in helping him secure a £3,000 claim after he injured his achillies tendon.

“A big thank you for your expertise, without In Focus I would never have known any different and I thank you for a NO FUSS payout.”

Remember, if you’re insured with In Focus and you have an accident – we’ve got you covered.

Beware the UK bridezillas

BRIDEZILLAS are costing photographers thousands of pounds by disputing the quality of photographs and not only refusing to pay but suing for damages.

The average cost of weddings is now reaching £17,000 and wedding photography around £1,000…..there is a lot at stake before you take into account the emotive considerations and solicitors legal bills defending legal actions.

Weddings are very costly and it is understandable couples expect the highest quality in return for paying high bills.

Another happy client…

We were pleased to help out Simon Watson, a great photographer in Oxfordshire by getting his premium down and making sure he was fully covered for his photography business. He’s a member of the Guild as well – which stands him in good stead.

It just goes to show what you can get if you go to a specialist photographer insurer”, says Simon.

In Focus supports campaign to protect photographers from S44

We’re backing a campaign highlighted by Darren Hector, a brilliant wildlife photographer (check his work out), to help innocent photographers who find themselves in trouble over the Terrorism Act.

 

Professional and amateur photographers are affected by S44 of the Terrorism Act which is all too often being used by the Police to prevent photographers doing their job.
