Thieves should be shot in the head. And not with a camera.

A lady photographer had 6k worth of equipment stolen from the church just after a wedding ceremony. It happened in a small town just outside of Glasgow. Thieving scum go to weddings too and never take the day off.

What is the insurance policy with this and other thefts... I've heard of stuff getting ripped of from togs houses, cars, and as the video depicted from the receptions.

If its stolen from your car is it covered by car insurance?
If its stolen from your house is it homeowners insurance?
From the site - extra policy for gear required?


Gear: Some Canon stuff, some Sigma Stuff, some Tamron Stuff, but not enough stuff!!!

I can identify with this... had my first dSLR stolen from a wedding a few years ago. I was a guest, not the main photographer. I had the DJ announce that it was stolen, and ran around asking everyone if they had seen it. Of course, no one had. I don't trust anyone anymore.

Car insurance will only replace it if you have business insurance on it, that you are using your car as a business..same with home insurance..if you have a business in your home and didn't tell the insurance co. then anything stolen from the business is not covered..at least that is how it is here.

I cant speak for every insurance company but mine (State Farm) covers my camera equipment under my homeowners policy regardless if its in my home, car, or somewhere where I'm using it. They draw the line between hobby and business use at the point where your income from photography exceeds 50% of your total income. At that point a rider covering the gear is necessary. Check with your own insurance company to see what their coverage is.

It looked to me like the photographer was nowhere near his equipment. Leaving the camera unattended at an event like that is just stupid on the part of the photographer. I'm sorry that the couple's images are gone but the photographer bears some of the responsibility here too...
