    All of these look fantastic and are suited to different types of photographers – great selection there. I use WordPress for my own site and whilst I don’t use any of these themes, I’m happy as Larry with the one I do use! It’s such an amazing platform for photographers.

    Very nice themes. I’m surprised you didn’t mention Thesis as one of the themes under $100. The nice thing I like about Thesis is that, although it’s not specifically built for photographers, it is very customizable, has a clean layout, is very SEO friendly, and most of all, their support is second to none. Price is $75 and that includes lifetime upgrades and support. If WordPress gets a new version, they are on top of it. And their own new releases work flawlessly.

    Hi Stuart
    Yes, I couldn’t agree more. We’ve used Thesis for a long time and love what they have to offer. The main reason I didn’t include it here is because they don’t have one specific for photographers. Yet it does have all the bells and whistles you could ever want. Thanks for the info!
