p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Stepping up website design - best premium WP themes?


I suppose if I'm going to continue taking photos of people, I should have a nice website design with a professional-grade wordpress theme. So, instead of using the free themes all the time, I'm going to purchase a good theme. However, since I only want to purchase ONE theme, I want to make sure it's the right one.

Does anyone have any recommendations based on their experience with WP themes?

And also...did you have to hire a designer or were you able to build it yourself to your fullest satisfaction?

And also...if you built it yourself, did you have to buy a template in addition to buying the wordpress theme/etc.?

I went through prophoto.
I purchased a theme from northfolk.

They have several as in at least 6-8+ different designers/companies creating templates.
Buy one and and upload your info/pictures.
Or ... most of them let you purchase where the designer does all the work.

thirdly, I know several will create a custom site from an existing theme.

There are other companies like prophoto... just need to search I see what inspires you.


I think I am going to hire Northfolk to add a couple of features for me.
I don't have the time.

During spring and fall I don't have time for things like website design, but during this summer I do, and I want my website to look better than it has previously. I want most of all to convert the portfolio section to something much more clean and professional, and overall I'd like my site to be more like a consistent package.


I'm debating several themes right now including a rawfolio design, ProPhoto 6, and Divi.

I've weighed in on this question in the past, but I'll add this time as well that I'm really happy with FloThemes.

https://flothemes.com/

I use a theme called "Cozy", but they have several themes available. They don't do free or cheap themes, just good quality, crisp, clean themes for photographers. Support is good. You can pay them extra for customization if you'd like and they do good work there, as well. If you're familiar with CSS/HTML and other code, then you of course can customize on your own. Their code is well structured and not pretty straight forward to fumble through.

Also happy with FloThemes. This is my 3rd year with them. Great support on their FB group, too.

Has anyone tried Squarespace? I know it's not Wordpress but they say it's great for SEO.
