Crown copyright act clearly states that as I am employed as a photographer any images I create in connection with my work are the copyright of my employer.

However, i am sure that I have read somewhere that as the author, I still retain the right to display my work in a non profit way, i.e. portfolios, etc

could someone please clarify if this is correct, if so a direction to the relevant chapter and verse in the CCA would be great.

Cheers
Andy

Rights of the author are generally called 'moral rights' - see Chapter IV of the Copyright Designs and Patents Act.

I don't recall any mention of portfolio use though. It's probably best to check with your employer anyway, even if it is just as a courtesy.
