Broken Camera? Broken Lens? Don't Panic: Take Advantage of PPA's Photocare Equipment Insurance - PPA Today

Broken Camera? Broken Lens? Don't Panic: Take Advantage of PPA's Photocare Equipment Insurance

Sometimes when you're out photographing, the unexpected happens. Hopefully, it's usually a
good surprise, like catching a perfect moment during a wedding totally unplanned or posed. However, we know that there are also surprises that you don't want to happen--like equipment breaking during a photo shoot! 

Replacing broken equipment isn't always economically feasible, and equipment insurance can also be expensive. So where do you turn?

Luckily, PPA members (U.S. and Puerto Rico-based Professional Active or Life members) can get up to $15,000 of equipment coverage paid for by PPA. You read that right--it's all included with your membership fee and you pay no additional premium to receive this coverage. Sounds pretty sweet, right?

PhotoCare Equipment Insurance will cover loss of equipment due to fire, theft or breakage. There's only one thing you have to do to be covered! Log in to and visit the MyPPA section. If you're eligible, you'll see "Your current PhotoCare equipment insurance status" with a "Activate my PhotoCare" link to click. Once you've opted in, you're covered! 


Do it today! You'll be thanking yourself for opting in if you end up with a broken camera, broken lens or other broken equipment at a photo shoot. PPA is proud to offer this program so that you can be more and continue to do what you love even if the unexpected happens! 

Questions? You can read up on all the PhotoCare details and FAQs. Or, contact our customer service department at 800-786-6277 and they'll answer any questions you have. You can also check out tips for protecting your equipment on the PPA Today blog.

So, opt in now  (right now--we'll wait)... so you're not caught by surprise and left with a sore wallet if you suffer broken photography equipment or loss due to theft or fire.
