If it's in recovery mode, the data is already gone. All you can do at this point is restore the phone, then restore your last backup.

Something went wrong during the update. It happens. Do you not back up your phone on a regular basis?

After more searching on the forum, I found something that helped me:
I had the same problems as described in the earlier posts. After my shock about my Photos I searched for a solution.
1.) Download Tiny Umbrella 6. Link is on the right site of this website http://thefirmwareumbrella.blogspot.com
2.) Install and connect iPhone
3.) Software is showing a connected iPhone in recovery mode. In the top of the software is a button "Exit Recovery" Press that
4.) My iPhone got out of recovery and seemed like to install ios 6 again. Finally it restarted with ios6
5.) All my apps was still their, but my photos wasn't. I looked at my iPhone storage and all my Phone was full of "other data"
6.) I used an iPhone File Manager to get access to my photos again...
Worked for me, but I can't gurantee that it is working for all of u guys....

For me it was just a case of clicking the button 'Exit Recovery'. Phone is back to its former glory, I'm just copying all photos down.
I would've been probably safe anyway as I have the 'automatically back ot to this computer' ticked. So I assume that there would've been a back up from the day before or so (I'm syncing every day)....
