I was recently contacted to do a shoot for a website. The site is paying me for my work (barely), and I asked if I could use some of the images in my portfolio. I was told that I can't because the owner of the site doesn't want anyone to have copies. These shots would really add something new to my portfolio, do I have the right to use them for self promotion? I haven't been asked to sign anything yet, and plan on reading through anything I am asked to sign. I just think that for what I'm being paid for the work the least they could do is allow me usage. Just want to know what I can and can't do. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
