Hello Paul,
Thank you for getting in touch!

Well, sure: Ecwid store could be configured like this.
We have an article that describes turning an entire store into showcase with a bit of CSS, but I presume it won't help in the case, as you'd want it to keep functioning as a store (and only add one category with showcase), so we'll need to improve this solution.

The good news is: we have the tools that would allow you to do it.
I can suggest the following approach:

1) You could create new root category ("Showcase"), and products representing albums for each customer: as one product can have a number of gallery images attached, this would allow you to create a product for each customer, and add all the photos to gallery.

2) Then we could apply the CSS that hides all that represents online store, but from certain pages only: this way the rest of your store will keep functioning like a normal online store, but these particular pages (category page representing showcase, and product pages representing albums) won't.

It's easy with category page (as there's just one of it): it'll only need one rule, hiding "Buy now" looking like:
.ecwid-productBrowser-CategoryPage-CATEGORY_ID .ecwid-btn--buyNow {
display: none !important;
CATEGORY_ID in this case should be replaced with the actual ID of this category

The same approach, described in the article, works for product pages, except that a rule should be created for each page (i.e. for each product, that should have some elements hidden):

Hope this helps!
