In Illinois i had to register my business name (doing business as) with the county, a one time registration. I also needed a business license for the city I live in which is an annual fee. This is required even if you are operating out of your home. I got a small business insurance policy from the same place I have my home owners state farm. As part of that I got an equipment coverage piece for anything that may be lost, damaged or stolen while on location shooting. Big thing is the liability coverage in case you would damage someoneelse sproperty while you are shooting.
