This one is targeted at the traveling photographer or the photography blogger. It achieves the difficult task of combining both a beautiful photography showcase with space for other content, such as your journal. The name of the theme speaks for itself. It’s a really clean design that compels you to look around the site and see what else it has to offer.
This is an instant classic. A truly immersive full-screen theme with a smooth slideshow and a variety of options to showcase your portfolio. You can take the traditional road with this one and let your photography speak for itself or you have the option of adding more detailed descriptions. And the seamless integration with social networks will have you sharing your photos on Facebook in no time.
This theme certainly has a premium feel. Its ultra-modern design and attention to detail is what sets it apart. It has thoughtful features, such as password protected content, and striking visuals to make your work as a photographer pop. Many features for showcasing your work are available. The only issue you’ll have is choosing just one.
A super modern theme that gets to the point quickly with a beautiful horizontal slider. Showcasing your work doesn’t get any easier than this. Captivating transitions all around the site create an immersive experience – and that’s what a photography site is all about, creating an experience for the customer not just serving them with the images.
Finally, this one I’d put under the category of portfolio themes for photography studios. It’s great for the freelance photographer but where it shines most is with studios. It has a layout built to showcase project-based photography and it does this well. It provides really versatile options for project descriptions and comprehensive “About” pages that would fit a photography studio perfectly, making this theme perfect for showing not only your work but your business as well.
