Manhattan Photography Insurance: Protecting Your Business Gear

Manhattan Photography Insurance: Protecting Your Business Gear 

It’s no secret that digital technology has revolutionized the realm of photography. From new image formats to digital darkroom capabilities, modern photographers are not only expected to be masters of light and timing, but also technology wizards. Modern photographers use high definition cameras, super powered laptops and high quality printers to deliver their goods and services. While photo-editing software and digital cameras have propelled photography to new heights, new technology can be a big expense for professionals. Cameras, extra memory, lenses, printers, image processing software, light kits and back drops are just a few of the most essential equipment pieces a photographers need, especially in the digital era. In fact, one of the largest business expenses a photography professionals encounter are some of the most essential tools of the trade.

Professional photographers use a tone of gear. In fact, their livelihood is largely reliant upon the functionality of their equipment and technology. When dealing with large amounts of business equipment and technology, a lot can go wrong. It is highly important that professional photographers protect themselves and their equipment as replacements and repairs don’t come cheap.

Industry professionals claim that proper cleaning and maintenance can help improve the longevity of your cameras, lenses, filters and other equipment. Dust, dirt or and other particulates on a lens or filter can interfere with your image by producing flare or blurring in your shots. Dust and dirt can also interfere with the sensor or and other mechanical components, which can ultimately cause serious problems. Gently and thoroughly cleaning all physical components can help remove hazardous particulates and increase the longevity of your gear. Even tripods, stands, packs and other equipment should be cleaned thoroughly on a regular basis to ensure that they are free of dirt, crumbs, rust, grime and other functional and esthetic menaces.
