No. Photographs are automatically copyrighted, the moment they are created, as is anything else that qualifies for coypright protection.

I think I understand your approach perfectly. You want stuff you can't afford, so you try to justify taking it without paying for it.

If that were true, then, by your logic, there is no reason for you to even desire anything that is still under copyright because everything has already been created. Find something in the public domain. By your logic, whatever you want must be there.

That would be because you want stuff you can't afford, and want to take it anyway, without paying for it.

The French Revolution did away with copyright. Basically, nothing new was published until it was brought back. Your approach was tried. And failed. Spectacularly.
