Website: who owns photos/content?

I'm curious about who owns the content of a website (photos, text), the owner of the site or the web designer or web developer?

I do a little free lance work for an organization who is getting a new web designer. When I visit the designers website and so go to the sites they've developed, I note that the copyright information on all the sites are for the web designer, not the company.

Is this the way it should be when a company pays a web designer to develop their site? In other words, if I pay you to develop a website for me and I provide the content including images, shouldn't the site be copyrighted to me even though I didn't design the site?
