12 WordPress Themes from Elegant Themes Perfect for Photographers

Elegant Themes offers over 87 different themes to choose from when you sign up. Not all are made for photography so you have to go through them to find something that works. I’ve done that and found 12 that are perfect for photography or a portfolio website. I still think Elegant Themes is the best deal in the industry as far as what you receive for the price. For as low as $69 you get access to all of their themes. You can of course opt for the developer license which I have done for $89 per year that gives you access to their plugins as well. Yes, you are free to use their themes on as many website as you like. They do not place any restrictions on how many times you can download or use a theme, nor do they limit the number of domains that you can install their themes to. So if you change your mind about a theme you installed you can download another one of their themes and install that. You’re never stuck with just one theme design.

So, here are the twelve themes I find great for photography websites.

1. Vertex Theme

Vertex is a responsive theme so it adjusts accordingly to display nicely on mobile devices.  The homepages is designed to engage your visitors and tell your story through galleries, sliders, testimonials and team member bios.

10 Quotes by Famous Photographers

I found some awesome quotes from famous photographers and wanted to share. I really liked these and decided to create some graphics from them. Hope you like them. You might have heard of some of them, but if there’s any you haven’t heard of I suggest googling or searching on Bing for them.
