If you’re a photographer with a WordPress site, there are so many different options you can use to display your photography and create a portfolio. One thing you should definitely do to ensure that your photos get the page real-estate they deserve is to use a theme that was specifically designed for displaying photos. Here are some of our favorites:
Gridsby is a WordPress theme with a grid layout that was inspired by Pinterest. It’s great for displaying your photos as a full collection rather than individually. The theme is fully responsive.
Panorama is fully responsive and allows you to feature several full-size photos on your home page (the images can also function as links). The home page images also come with nice CSS effects for smooth transitioning between feature images.
Yuuta is a simple theme that you can use to feature your full-size images as backgrounds of your posts as they appear on the home page of your site. The images will take up the entire width of your page, so they’ll be beautifully displayed. The theme is also fully responsive.
Divina is a theme designed specifically for photographers. Use it to display your photos in a clean, minimalist grid that enlarges the photos when they’re clicked on. The theme is responsive and features a sidebar.
The Aperture theme’s full-screen slider is a great way to display your full sized images.
Grid layouts are great for displaying photographs, so here’s another one. This one has a modern, clean design that will display your posts’ featured images on the home page of your site.
