We have the same clause in our contract. The way it was explained to me is that we can use our photos any way we want; including printing them out and giving them to people. We could even sell them, if we wanted to. The photographer also has rights to the photos and can use them to showcase on their site and in their portfolio, if they want to.

I would suggest clarifying with your photographer so you understand exactly what that particular usage of “ownership” means. Because you’re right—it sounds different than my “rights” package.

I’ve never heard of “ownership” for photos?!?! I would ask your photographer.

You either have “full copyright” or you have “printing license” to print and use for your own personal use.

You only get “full copyright” if your photographer sells it to you for $$$$.

The “ownership” part of your contract is misleading, you definitely need clarification.

We had “ownership” which means we own them ie having full copyrights over the pics.

Just as an FYI, be sure to print out the photographers ownership/copyright statement b/c when I went to print my photos I was asked to show the statment.
