Do the homeowners or photographers own the rights to photos of the property?

Link to article here:

https://www.thestar.com/life/homes/2018/08/17/do-the-homeowners-or-photographers-own-the-rights-to-photos-of-the-property.html

I found this an interesting article. Let's assume that there were no prior written agreement which specifically addressed ownership and use of the photos beyond their original intended use. What is the "default" state of the ownership and use of the photos?

If a photographer is contracted to take photos of a home, does the homeowner ultimately retain rights? There are several parties involved, in this case: the homeowner, the real-estate agent, the stager and the photographer.
