So I had the unfortunate experience of losing a family relative the other week and flew out to Florida to be there for the funeral :(
Whenever someone you know passes away, you start thinking about your own time here and what would happen if you suddenly leave this world. What kind of stress that puts on your family. This usually goes back to estate planning with things like life insurance. Life insurance comes in and helps with funeral costs, debts, etc. but what about your business? There are insurances you can get that will take over and refund your clients but does that have to be the only way?
Every Professional Photographer I know has 1 or 2 Photographer friends they say will step in and help cover their events same as if they get disabled, but if something happens to you AND you have a good amount of work, that is ALOT to put on 1 or 2 people. They in turn would probably be reaching out to their photographer friends for help.
What if there was another way? A better way? I'm thinking of something like a God Photography program which would consist of a variety of Photographers who could step up and help in these situations and they in turn would have the same benefits. A program that can come help your family and estate get through these events and take the burden off of them. Photographers would get paid out of the balances due, clients would not have to then find new photographers and insurances don't have to worry about paperwork and claims. A win/win all around.
