Yes.

"[...]early in the history of photography, there was a series of
judicial decisions that could well have changed the course of
photography substantially. Courts were asked whether the photographer,
amateur or professional, required permission before he could capture and
print whatever image he wanted. Their answer was no.[^31]

The arguments in favor of requiring permission will sound surprisingly
familiar. The photographer was "taking" something from the person or
building whose photograph he shot - pirating something of value.[...]"
