Yes it was violent
Sharing intimate images of one's partner without her consent is a criminal offence in itself. Not only that, but the abuser is ignoring his girlfriend's wishes and using different forms of psychological violence and manipulation (belittling, guilt-tripping, invalidating, insults, etc.) to get what he wants.

Selling photos of a nude person for the sexual satisfaction" of others is a form of prostitution. Pressuring someone to do so is a form of pimping and sexual exploitation."
Link between domestic violence and prostitution
The link between intimate partner violence and prostitution has yet to be extensively researched but European and North American studies have already shown that up to 80% of pimping activities begin in the context of an intimate relationship (often simulated by abusers, but real for the victims).
