Insurance Packages for Photographers

Why Aon?

Aon have been protecting Photographers in Australia for over 20 years and are a recommended insurance partner for members of the Australian Institute of Professional Photography (AIPP). We’ve developed a tailored, comprehensive and affordable insurance package system to meet the varying risks of amateur through to professional photographers. As photography equipment is often not included in your standard home and contents policy, ensure your precious equipment, including drones, are covered with Aon, for theft, loss and damage whether you’re working at home, in a studio, or onsite with a client.

We currently offer 3 insurance packages which you can quote and buy online:

1. Equipment insurance only.

2. Equipment insurance + add-on $20mill public liability.

3. Complete studio package insurance (cover for your equipment, public liability and your studio).

To get started with either 1, 2 or 3, simply choose the equipment cover level you’d like below.

Purchasing new equipment?

Need another lens? If you buy more photography equipment, we can cover it too – as long as it’s bought within the policy period.

Are drones covered under my photographer’s insurance policy?

Yes, we happily announce that we include cover for drones as part of our photographer’s insurance policies for equipment and public liability. We can cover drones up to 5kgs and up to $5,000 in value.

With the equipment insurance, your drones will be covered for damage and theft everywhere in the world, and even when in use. The drone cover included as an extension to the Public Liability policy will ensure you’re covered should you injure someone or damage others people’s property whilst operating the drone.

Drone claims on the policy will attract a higher excess of $1,000 compared with the standard $100 seen with all other equipment. There are also some conditions applied to ensure you are complying with CASA regulations which we will include in our documentation to you when you apply for the extension.

Add-on: Our Public Liability cover

When you’re on a professional job, you’ll need to prove that you have public liability cover, so we’ve negotiated a top level cover of $20M. All you need to do is choose the level of equipment cover you require above & then in the quote and buy system, click package B to add Public Liability cover to your purchase.

Add-on: Our studio cover

If you’re a photography studio owner, you’ll benefit from ensuring your studio itself as well. With our studio cover package, your studio and everything in it will be covered against damage and loss (including fire, theft and glass damage). To purchase this policy, all you need to do is select the level of Equipment cover you require above, & then in the quote and buy system, click package C which includes studio cover as well.
