If you're running a Linux-based ATV installation, I can help some. I don't know how (or if it's possible) to do it with Apple's OS. Maybe someone else can chime in here.
In a nutshell, you'd need to ssh into the ATV, change to the root user, and add something like the following to /etc/fstab:
//server/directory /mnt/media smbfs username=foo,password=bar,user,uid=xbmc,gid=xbmc,fmask=0664,dmask=0775 0 0
//server/directory is the share path to your Mac that contains the iPhoto Library.
/mnt/media is where you want to mount the share on the local filesystem. You will need to create the directory if it doesn't exist.
Then you should be able to see the share on the ATV after a reboot.
If all of that seems really foreign to you, it's probably better to go the other route I mentioned.
