Aren't there (at least) two issues?:

i) payment to the photographer for use of the image as if there had been an ex ante designed and signed contract &

ii) the separate issue of 'punishment' (such as extra compensation) for stealing someone's image (i.e. property) in the first place.

Yes. Although the second depends on which country the case is heard in.  Different places have different views on how great the punishment should be.
