5 best photography WordPress themes

Thanks to everyone who’s contributed so far. Would love to see a few more contributions before the week is out! :slight_smile:

We’ll be compiling a list to publish around this time next week.


3 of my favorite Photography WordPress themes are the following.

Milano WordPress theme by @BeantownThemes

We feel our theme is perfect for the photographer who is looking for a super minimal and clean style layout which will let their work shine. Along with the unique homepage layout(s) the theme offers unique layouts for menus, blogs, WooCommerce and more.



Emilie WordPress theme by @cmsBlueTheme has 4 homepage styles so photographers can choose between different fullscreen or grid layouts. The theme also offers a unique fullscreen menu layout.



Fullscreen WordPress theme by @tommusrhodus is a great solution for photographers looking for a nice fullscreen homepage layout. The theme also features a unique layout for the navigation and image category sorting.



@DomHennequin , is there any similar pick - up for “WooCommerce / eCommerce WordPress themes”? :wink:

Definitely in the future :wink:

Hey everyone!

Thank you so much to each and everyone who contributed to this thread.

It’s already proving to be valuable for customers, and is ranking well when searching for photography WordPress themes, which should be great for your items.

A big shout-out to @Aether-Themes who ended up being our chosen curated list. We had to whittle it down to 5 to make it more palatable for readers and not crowd them with too much choice. That said, we’ve included a link from the article to this thread if they want more curated options, which should again work as some nice exposure for the items and authors posted here.

Feel free to keep the curations here going as I think it has the potential to have a lot of lifetime value for customers. And we may well want to come back to this topic in the future and publish another community curated list from it.

For now thank you all for contributing and congratulations again to @Aether-Themes and the other featured authors.

Thanks for choosing my list! I hope some of these themes get more deserved exposure. :slight_smile:


A bit old conversation but,

I’m looking for a new WP-theme to display my work with.

My field is photojournalism and I need something clean, simple, fast that focus on the images.

I still don’t own any of the themes in this list :blush: but after days of reachers, email conversations and hours on their demo I will definitely choose one of these four clean and beautiful themes :slight_smile:

After some more thinking I ask my shelf a very important question regarding photography themes. Why is there “always” no chance to make adjustment on the way the images are displayed? If I like to show my images in Lightbox theres very small amount of settings I can change :frowning:

Will update this post when I’ve decided on a theme, if it’s possible to find a good one that has everything I need…

I’m sure all mentioned themes are very good, but I really want to be able to achieve what I want with the theme I buy.

Here is my latest update: Finally I decided to go for a new theme by @fox-themes and the name of the theme is Napoli. My page is still not done but the theme works great and is very easy to understand. Fox-themes is working hard right now to make everyone happy and get new updates out, and so far most user seems happy with the theme :slight_smile: Give it a try I’m sure you will like it.
