Want to take better travel photos? Wondering what the best camera insurance for travel is? I got you!

You’ll very rarely find me travelling without a camera in hand and a few lenses in my bag.

As a photographer, nothing feels better than capturing the people, places and moments I experience – and being able to share them with others.

I’m in my travel photography element when capturing emotions, personalities and fleeting moments. From a child smiling at her mother to a leopard emerging from its hiding place, I’m happiest when taking portraits and wildlife photography.

A bit like my general travel style, my photography focuses heavily on immersive travel and ethical wildlife encounters – and helps me transport you on those experiences with me.

Finding the right camera insurance for travel

Did you know that your camera insurance might not be valid when you travel?

Camera insurance is designed to protect your gear – but often that only extends are far as your home country.

If you’re travelling further afield, your camera insurance might not be enough. If you’re travelling long-term, it almost certainly won’t be.

I covered everything you need to consider when buying camera insurance for travel in this post.
