Can I store the location of an image file in a MySQL database?

I'm very new to this so please forgive my ignorance.
I want to create an image database for a photography web site, but I don't want to
store the actual images in the database because as I understand it they can't be
displayed directly from the database and can become very cumbersome.
So I want to know if I can store the file location in the database?
If so what is the best way to do this?
How is the connection made between the database and the page?
I would really appreciate any advice on this.
