NANPA Photographers Equipment Insurance

Photography can be a difficult calling. Expensive equipment, unpredictable conditions and the always-elusive perfect moment make the final product uniquely rewarding, and uniquely yours. The last thing you need to worry about is equipment damage or theft when you’re trying to focus on the job at hand. Luckily, Rand Insurance and Chubb have a solution designed just for current NANPA members who are U.S. residents.

Program Coverage Includes:

  • “All risk” worldwide coverage, exclusive of mysterious disappearance
  • Unscheduled protection available for items valued under $500
  • Leased/borrowed equipment included up to $1,000, with higher limits available (subject to underwriter approval)
  • Coverage for newly-acquired equipment for 180 days or until policy expiration
  • Coverage may extend to computer equipment used for photography imaging
  • Low $250 deductible per occurrence

The NANPA Photographers Equipment Insurance Program protects against breakage, fire, vandalism and theft (barring mysterious disappearance). It also includes extended warranty and maintenance contracts in loss assessments, and even optional blanket protection for unscheduled items under $500 in value—all at very competitive rates.
