Yes, you can access remote file shares without having OS X Server. With OS X client, see the Sharing pane in System Preferences. It's also possible to use Network Attached Storage (NAS) devices, such as Time Capsule or any of various devices from other vendors.
FWIW, I personally wouldn't put my iPhoto library on a share, though, as WiFi is pretty slow, and can be slightly flaky.

I have several hundred iPhoto libraries (plural) in that 1+ TB of backup drives--the collection has long outgrown one library, as well as the storage capacity of my primary laptop. And it's a PITA to connect the drives to the laptop directly, by firewire, and be tied to it while things transfer back and forth. It would be much better even with a slow wireless connection via sharing or server setup.
This weekend's project will be to try to set up the old laptop for this use.
