A picture is worth a thousand words, or so the old saying goes.
One might be less inclined to think along those lines as a “traditional” blogger. After all, blogging’s popularity was built upon a foundation of the written word. But we are now entering a brave new era in which image-driven media is becoming more and more prevalent.
And that’s not even to mention the simple fact that images can have a completely different (and unique) impact when compared to words. Whilst you can use words to convey thoughts and feelings that might not be possible with imagery, the same is equally possible with images. One simple photo really can have as much of an impact as a thousand words, and in our impatient society, that can be a powerful tool.
With that in mind, in this post I have compiled a collection of the best free WordPress photography themes available. They all do a great job of presenting images you place on your site as focal points. So why not give your fingers a rest and let your camera do the talking for once? Enjoy!

thanks for share. Themes so nice.
Thanks for the feedback — glad you enjoyed 🙂
Hello the digiphoto theme is a fake free theme. Register and not free download …
Maybe not free, but the “slider” used is free. You can get it at http://www.bkosborne.com/jquery-waterwheel-carousel
Brand-new @ this. I don’t seem to be having any trouble getting Digiphoto for free, but don’t have the “slider” function. I have downloaded your carousel…but where do I “put” it?
Thanks for these. It was great share.
They’re trickily not free, do your research better.
photocrati is a good mention, but not free, ive bought it, its pretty impressive, cant wait for nextgen 2.0 😉

We appreciate that Chris!
Please share it
Nice write up Tom. I’d be really interested in your thoughts on Photocrati’s take over of NextGEN… I know it’s been a while since that happened but I noticed they seem to be making updates at a steady rate, and growing their business quickly. As it relates to this post on Photography themes, what do you think of the Photocrati themes on offer?
Scott Wyden Kivowitz
Thanks for the mention in your comment. It would be great to see Photocrati on this list, but our theme is not free. Regarding NextGEN – we are working hard on NGG 2.0 and a premium version. There is a lot of amazing things to come!
