Internship won’t let me use my work samples in a portfolio  February 12, 2013 – 06:10 pm

I intern at a high-end design company where we create one-of-a-kind visual art. I am an unpaid intern. The studio manager has told me that despite me creating artwork for the company, I have no rights to use it in my portfolio ever. She also said that many of the techniques I’ve learned at the internship I cannot use when I move on. This was when my internship was ending and I wanted samples for my print portfolio. Is this true?

I obviously would steer away from copying work I’ve done to use at another company, but as far as my portfolio goes, I feel like I should be able to show people photographs and samples of what I’ve worked on while I was at the company. It isn’t really possible for me to recreate the work I’ve done outside of the studio because I don’t have the resources. They are using painting and drawings that I created with my own hands and then used their resources and guidance to reproduce. Many of these samples are what they show to clients to give them a sense of the studio’s capabilities.

Essentially, my question is, what can an unpaid art studio intern expect in terms of being able to show physical representation of the work they’ve done?

It’s true that the work that you create for your employer belongs to them, and they say how it can be used.

I know that there are anomalies, and I know that not every star system is necessarily like ours, but what I am hoping to find out here is why, specifically, we don’t believe that most stars have a distinct probability of having orbiting planetary bodies.
