The 14 Best WordPress Photography Themes of 2016

The Best 14 WordPress Photography Themes

As of today, the leading WordPress design companies and authors are focusing on WordPress photography themes due to the huge demand. Seems like most of the market is creating websites for showcasing work online, which can be done with a portfolio-like themes. Take a look at Themeforest for example (an Envato company), and notice the sheer amount of photography WordPress templates, landing page etc.

There is no doubt that the WordPress content management system is a good choice for any individual or company to start with (and stick to), but an appealing theme will make or break the way you and your visitors think about your new venture or portfolio. Picking a premium theme that will dazzle visitors, while is easy to install and maintain is not a hard task like you would expect it to be, as we gathered the best WordPress photography themes you could think of right below.

UPDATE: we recently updated some of the photography themes below for 2016.



You might expect to pay top dollar for premium websites, but to be honest, the common price point these days is around $50 per theme – at the biggest marketplaces and leading theme creators. At other places you can even get bundles of 80+ themes for as low as $39. We listed themes from a variety of sources so prices might change, consider the cost and compare themes so you can make a wise decision.

If you are  novice WordPress developer and you do not know how to setup your first website, I’d recommend on reading the “Complete guide to WordPress” which you can find using Google.

1. The Divi Theme – Stylish photography with minimal fuss

We couldn’t start a visually-orientated theme list without mentioning the Divi theme. This multi-functional work of art is as versatile as it is functional. Even the most amateur website programmers will appreciate the ease of set up, but where things get really interesting is when the advanced features are accessed. In most cases however, you’ll probably be content with implementing your own photos, images and text – all of which are so easy to do that you could have your website done in just a few hours!
