I work as a freelance building surveyor for a local authority in south wales (via a recruitment agency)
As part of my work I tend to take quite a few 'before and after' shots of refurbishmant and new extensions of buildings such as schools and community centres.
I'm am now setting up a Ltd company and would like to use these photographs in an advertising brochure.
Out of courtsey I checked with the Section Head, however he gave a very negative response.
Where do I stand in this? - I took the photos therefore don't I own the copyright?
(the photos do not include any people in them and are mainly external shots of buildings and access ramps - pretty boring stuff really.)
Any help welcome.
