If you are a trained photographer or just a keen enthusiast, then you will be well aware of how much the photography equipment costs – anything from the film to the cameras and developing equipment – all of this can easily add up will in to the thousands. This is why it is vital to keep your photography equipment safe – and when I say safe I mean from damage and from the risk of been stolen.

If you are taking your equipment with you on a journey, ensure that all of it is secured in place so it cannot move around in your transport. Often camera lenses get broken on route to a location more so than on location.

When out and about, make sure that your equipment is kept with you at all times or if not, left with someone that you can trust. Many insurance companies will not pay out for equipment that has been stolen whilst left unattended.
