    Non-Business Camera Insurance?

    Hi all, as mentioned in my Hasselblad sell-a-thon, I'm more fully retiring this year and getting back to photography for the fun of it ... and I may teach a little bit.

    I've always carried a hefty Professional Studio Package business insurance through Fireman's Fund ... which is obviously over-kill now.

    How do you folks insure your gear both at home and on the road?

    Thanks for any insights,

    -Marc

    Are you not still going to need indemnity and liability? You need them for weddings at least do you not?

    Not doing weddings any longer Ben. I have one this year that I booked long ago, but nothing to pay some big insurance bill over.

    I stopped all marketing efforts back in November 2012 ... not that would have made any difference, since I haven't had a call for a wedding in 4 months.

    I'll still need personal liability, but I have that already for $2 million.

    Marc,

    I added a personal property policy to my homeowners....only for camera equipment. Had to show receipts for all the equipment.

    Which reminds me...need to update as most of my current equipment is not listed.

    Covers on the road....

    I have a cameras rider on Fireman's - I just list the dollar amount and don't need to keep updating the inventory.
