Sorry, it's actually the organization that creates it that gets copyright, not the individual. So if you're an employee of a company then the company own the copyright. However if you're a freelancer working for another company, you're a separate organization, not an employee so you own copyright. This means that if you're an employee and build a personal site in your work time, your employers own the copyright. However if a company brings you in on a project as a freelancer, unless specified in your contract, everything you create for that company, you own.
