Public Liability & Professional Indemnity Insurance for 110!

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 110 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 180 so there is an instant saving of 70 towards your membership fee straight away! Plus we will throw in a photographic gift worth up to 65 for the price of the postage and packaging and don’t forget the free Legal Help-line cover The Societies offer as well!

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

With the advance of HD DSLR the HDDSLR-TRAINING CO has put together a course that will make you the envy of other wedding photographers bar none. The course is delivered by Lee Curran a director of photography formally of the BBC. From Top Gear to BBC1 drama he knows a thing or two about filming.

He uses the Nikon D3s for filming on a daily basis so knows how to get the best from the HDDSLR. The course is practical and hands on and will show you what the next big wow factor will be in the next year. Early adopters will be at the forefront of the revolution so this course is a must.

HDDSLR is here to stay and is the most exciting development since the shutter button. Find out how to make a sequence, which your clients will treasure forever. Photos are great but photos and sound are even better. The course isn’t designed to produce a wedding video, this course is to enhance your clients wedding photography experience and to push your professionalism to a higher plane.
