I won't go as far as to recommend you use Drupal with
the ecommerce and image modules, but I do suggest you check
it out.

In a nutshell, the image module can present galleries,
and the ecommerce module can turn any node at all in a
Drupal site into a product.

There'd be some theme work required to make it easier
to understand than it is by default.
