Professional Photographers of America unveils improved equipment insurance

Professional Photographers of America (PPA) announced improvements to their PhotoCare equipment insurance, giving member photographers robust protection against costly repair and replacement fees. The improved insurance now includes:

  • Full replacement value of stolen or damaged equipment
  • Flat deductibles for repairs and replacements of photography gear like cameras, lenses, lighting set-ups, and computer hardware

With up to $15,000 in total coverage, PhotoCare insurance is included with PPA membership at no extra cost. Previously, the policy did not cover the full replacement value of equipment, and deductibles increased with each claim filed.

“PPA is always looking for new ways to help photographers be profitable, and sometimes that means building on our existing membership benefits,” said Kristen Hartman, Director of Membership. “Many photographers join PPA because of the equipment insurance included with membership, and we’re thrilled to say that the improved policy is truly one of the best available anywhere.”
