Under US law, i.e., Title 17, US Code:

Copyright lasts 70 years beyond death of the author.

Copyright exists from the time of creation.

Without registration, the author of a "work of visual art" can claim authorship and sue for infringement and receive actual damages, but not statutory damages or attorney fees. A "work of visual art" is defined in Section 101, page 7. Specific to photographs is Sec. 101(2)
