  8. Soren from Vacation tips Says:

    Hi Anders and Mark,
    This is a very fine and useful list of WP themes for photographers and others wanting pictures online with blogs. I was searching for the download url for the new Fotofolio theme and found that with all the other options here, so thanks for that. As the SEO ability seems to be the general week point of most photo blogs, I hope the Fotofolio theme will be able to deliver better performance with some extra plug-ins, and besides that I think the Fotofolio wp theme is one of the most elegant solutions to display your selected photos.
    I will mention your list and url to my 2.000 subscribers of my ezine http://www.stockphotonews.com/

  13. Joe Ellis Says:

    If it’s not too spammy, I’d like to make a note that I have also recently released a free photoblog that uses the YAPB (Yet Another Photoblog) plugin. Feel free to check it out here:



  14. Jeevan Says:

  19. bob Says:

    when will theme developers realise people want a gallery AND a blog – how many of these themes have both? None of them.

  20. Pepi Says:

    Amazing themes. I will definately use one of them in my future photography blog…

  21. 8207h32 Says:

    wow.. amazing list..

  22. ThemeSage.com Says:

    The AutoFocus theme is a really cool example of a great and unique theme for photography and really what’s possible with WordPress.

  23. Lynn Weaver Says:

    I am glad you mention AutoFocus. Not only is it beautiful, it is flat-out awesome–easy to use right out of the box, but also intelligently designed and therefore customizable. Designer Allan Cole is very thoughtful about feedback and questions, too.

    By the way, Horizon does not appear to be a WordPress theme at all.

  24. FourPx Rathnaraj Says:

    Awesome work. The themes are lovely. The designer is very thoughtful. thanks for the great work and looking for more themes……..

    These themes are amazing. The only thing about certain themes is some of them have bad upload times because of the images. I wish there was more of a use of AJAX and loading icons so that the downloading looks more seemless for WordPress themes in the future.

  106. Thomas Says:

    Hey, this is a great list.

    I only saw that you missed one I thought should be added.

    Snapshot by Woo Themes is GREAT with a very functional back end.

    You can see this theme in action at http://PopWP.com

    Or the Gallery theme by Chris Wallace for Smashing Magazine, which you can see at http://InfoPosters.com

  107. Curt Says:

    These are all really nice themes!

    I currently use #19 – Reflection as my WordPress theme. It’s simple to setup and easy to maintain. The YAPB plugin for posting photos integrates photos seamlessly. It includes drop down links for your blog entry, comments, categories and EXIF data. Sidebars are optional but can be setup, I have one setup. The theme is compatible up through WP 3.0.1 (current version at this time)

    See it live at http://www.curtfleenor.com.
