Hi, I'm Jeff. I have a degree in Art/graphic design and have been working as a freelance web designer for over 10 years. I started using WordPress in 2005 and since then started developing websites solely with WordPress. I think it's the absolute best. Because I regularly build websites I wanted to create a resource where I could post news and finding related to themes for photographers in one place. Hope you find this site useful. If you have any questions or suggestions please feel free to contact me using the contact page. Make sure you subscribe for updates. RSS feed!
