Professional Indemnity

As soon as you agree to do a shoot you are contractually obliged to produce photos to an acceptable standard.

It is a fact of modern life that more and more people are willing to take matters to court and claim compensation if they are not satisfied with their photos, or if there were other problems on the day of the shoot.

Even if you are found not to be at fault, solicitors’ costs in defending yourself alone can be exorbitant. Professional Indemnity Insurance will provide you with this essential protection.

When you hold Professional Indemnity Insurance with Aaduki you can have peace of mind knowing that you are covered for:

Camera malfunction
Breach of copyright
Loss or damage to your work caused by either you or your processing lab
Operator error
Libel and slander

Public Liability & Professional Indemnity Insurance for £115!

Did you know you could now pay even less for your insurance?

Aaduki Multimedia has signed an exclusive deal with the Societies to provide insurance to its UK members at fantastic prices that are not available anywhere else in the market!

‘Aaduki has always offered value for money policies but these deals are so good that we simply cannot offer them to everyone! You can now get Public Liability up to £2 million and Professional Indemnity up to £75,000 for the amazing cost of £115 but only if you’re a member of the fastest growing photographic organisation in Europe. We also offer great rates for equipment and other covers too!’

This insurance offer would normally cost you over £187.50 so there is an instant saving of over £70 towards your membership fee straight away!

Now is the time to be part of the Societies and benefit from the excellent Insurance and other offers exclusive to our membership.

For the Insurance, call us on 01837 658880 with your membership number and we can provide the cover for you straight away.
