Our Mission

Full Frame Insurance strives to provide an affordable insurance option, so photographers and videographers can protect their gear and grow their business

Who Is Full Frame Insurance?

FFI was founded with convenience and ease in mind. Typical business insurance is clunky, too slow, and has an unnecessary amount of paperwork. We wanted to change that. Full Frame cuts out the unnecessary paperwork and waiting time, and lowers the costs of photography insurance for our customers.

We understand that as a business owner you are responsible for setting up and booking photoshoots, creating an online presence, editing all your client’s photos, and more. We offer the solution you’ve been looking for with our customizable policies that can include camera equipment coverage, damage to premises rented, and more. As a customer of FFI, you can breathe easier knowing your gear is protected on location, at a studio, and anywhere in between.

Great, fast insurance at a perfect price. We work and shoot weddings internationally so it was super convenient to have fast, easy coverage for the few weddings that we had in the states this year. There were a couple of changes that I needed to make after purchasing a single-day policy and their customer support was super helpful and fast. Thank you, Full Frame!

Just Looking for Liability Insurance?

We’ve got you! Check out all our industries below and find your business niche!

Cyber Liability

Cyber liability insurance protects your business from the cost of first- and third-party claims that arise from a cyber security breach within your business. Cyber crime has become a common threat for businesses both big and small. If you collect or store business information online on a computer, tablet, or mobile device, we highly suggest including this additional protection to your policy.

Professional Liability

Professional liability insurance can protect your business from the cost negligence claims that arise from professional errors and omissions, like giving bad instruction or failing to provide necessary information on a subject. If you teach classes or run demonstrations as part of your business, we strongly recommend this additional coverage option.

Additional Insureds

When you add a person, event, or organization to your policy as an additional insured, they receive protection if they are named in a suit due to a covered business-related loss/claim because of your actions or operations.

Additional insured status cannot be granted to a friend or co-worker as an extension of your policy. Each individual must purchase their own policy to obtain liability coverage.

A written contract, such as a venue, studio rental, or employment contract is required to add another party as additional insured.

General Liability

General liability insurance can protect your business from the cost of third-party bodily injury and property damage claims, like if a client trips on your business equipment and injures themselves. It also protects against the cost of copyright infringement claims, personal and advertising injury claims, and more.

Damage To Rented Premises

This coverage can protect your business from the cost of claims arising from damages done to rented spaces, like a studio or event booth. It’s common for property owners and event organizers to require businesses to list them as additional insureds on a policy before renting a space. Full Frame provides unlimited additional insureds for just $30.

Camera Equipment Coverage

Also known as inland marine insurance, camera equipment coverage can protect your business from the cost of repairing or replacing damaged or stolen business equipment—including camera bodies, lenses, lighting equipment, and more. Our policy can protect against claims that occur at home, on a job and anywhere in between. Full Frame offers multiple coverage options for equipment insurance based on your business needs.
