What Is the Best Insurance for Videographers?

Many videographers start with a Póliza para propietarios de empresas (BOP) for their insurance needs. It combines three types of coverages that are important for small businesses. And because it’s a single policy, you’ll save money on your insurance rates while protecting your videography business.
General liability insurance (GLI) helps protect your videography business from claims of property damage and bodily injury. This coverage can help if a guest trips over your equipment at an event and they need get medical care.
Commercial property insurance helps protect your owned or rented equipment and the studio you use to run your company. Think of this as professional video equipment insurance, which helps cover your:
  • Video cameras
  • Lenses
  • Computers
  • Hard drives
Business income insurance can help replace lost income if you can’t open your videography business because of covered property damage.
