Dear PPA Member,
Be prepared. Yes, that's the Boy Scout motto, but it should be the professional photographer's motto, too.
Owning a business means that when things go wrong, you are the one clients turn to for a quick fix. But can you plan for the unforeseen? No one plans for their camera--only a few months old--to go kaput. No one expects a car to break down on the way to a shoot. No one wants to imagine a client breaking a leg after tripping on your stone garden path.
Do you know what insurance or other types of protection programs you need for each of those situations? This week's Vital Signs touches on those answers. There are so many different programs and policies you need to consider for protection as a professional photographer, especially when normal insurance cannot help.
Hopefully, this article will help you better understand the ways you can be prepared. Here's to a successful (and safe) business!
