In Germany, courts ruled on a case involving a photographer and the photos of his former lover.

He must delete all the old nude photos of her. He can keep the old photos where she is wearing clothing.

Important to understand this concerns rights over informal images IN GERMANY, done without a contract yet WITH CONSENT.

It's not such a big issues as this pertains to parties that were in a relationship and the images were made/consent was given as part of the relationship. My understanding is that this will have little impact on images taken between a photographer and model without a contract however where there is not other relationship. In this case, the verbal contract rights prevail.
