Someone breaks into your studio and steals your expensive photography equipment


Business Personal Property coverage will replace stolen or damaged contents and repair the damage from the incident, up to the limits you select. Your insurance covers your loss at what it would cost you to replace the items, up to $1M or more based on your needs.

You are on your way back from a photo shoot and are involved in an accident. Your camera is damaged.

You take pictures of a wedding, but when you develop them, you notice that most are not turning out


Miscellaneous Professional Liability* provides protection for the legal obligations arising out of professional errors, negligent acts or omissions.

You are sued because someone visiting your office slipped and injured themselves on a mopped floor


General Liability provides coverage for injury to others at your premises and helps protect you from lawsuits (available up to $2M per occurrence; $4M aggregate)

A fire destroys the roof of your studio and you cannot operate your business until repairs are made

A pipe bursts and leaks all over a filing cabinet containing your critical documents

your trusted resources for business insurance

We know most photography businesses are small businesses just like my agency.

Sometimes during peak seasons - like wedding season or the holidays - you might have between 20-30 employees, but that might not be the norm. We understand that your photography studio sometimes includes additional photographers, a business manager, who oversees all aspects of operations, hired hairdressers and make-up artists who prepare clients for photo sessions, sales people, and photo assistants. In short, you have to trust a lot of people so you have the best shot at growing your business. 


We know small business. We are small business. We care. And we want to help.


Not only are we a team of commercially certified agents, we are also small business owners, too. Through our agencies, we help protect over 3000 photographers. Contact us today for better protection and value for your photography business.

"I use Allstate with a specific agent who specializes in photographers insurance. They have reasonable pricing with coverage customized for your needs. Fantastic service when I managed to tip over my tripod having my 5D and Nikon 500mm F4 wind up in the lake. Even though I pulled it out in a matter of seconds, it was a total loss and never a problem getting the claim resolved. The agent is Howard Burkholz and has a wonderful team."

"Allstate just gave me a settlement offer on Wednesday and it was more than I was expecting, so I am a very happy. Thank you for all your help and checking in, it was much appreciated. Out of the 4 insurance companies that I have been dealing with in this horrible loss, you are the only one reach out to see how things are going. I will make sure everyone on the San Francisco photographers FB group know how well you and Allstate took care of me."

“Thank you so much for coming out to our Phoenix Chapter meeting last night and speaking with us. Your presentation was fantastic and we all gained a wealth of knowledge for our business. Your business insurance presentation clarified and demystified so many aspects we thought we understood on this part of our business. We appreciate your taking the time to share with our group and look forward to working with you in our ASMP Phoenix Chapter.”
