I am a paid model, my work comes from both agencies and portfolio websites such as purestorm.com. Photographers pay me to take photos of me and my question is am I allowed to use these images on a personal portfolio website that I own? Must I ask the photographer permission to use the photos or do I have some kind of ownership as photographers paid me to take them in the first place or can I simply credit the photographer on my website? (and also keep intact any copyright notices they have put onto images they have taken of me). In the future should I write up an agreement with photographers stating that I would like to use the images created during a shoot on my website?
Would you as a photographer feel uncomfortable with the images being displaying on a model's personal portfolio site?
