It’s a privacy issue. I’d suggest "public with unguessable URL", like  
Picasaweb albums, plus limited period.
So you can share it with all participants without password, but avoid  
searchable public display of people who don’t like it.
Additionally I’d suggest to keep a few selected pics on a really  
public site (like news), where every pictured person gave their "model

Oh, there are a lot of good album applications - depends on your  
desired workflow.
E.g. if you’ve full access to a web server, you could use jAlbum  
(album-only app) or your photo management app (iPhoto, Picasa, ...) to  
generate HTML.
Or you use a service like Picasaweb (don’t know if Flickr knows semi- 
public albums).
Or you use an album module of some CMS.
Or you install a standalone album webapp (then chose a PHP or Ruby or  
Python or whatever based one...)
