Our client, a London-based photographer, wanted a new website to show his portfolio of macro, bird, landscape and seascape photography. He was familiar with WordPress and so wanted the website built on this platform.
We considered several plugins that offered photo galleries for WordPress, but none of them offered the ease of use or lightbox functionality that the client wanted.
In the end, we opted to use the new Breakdance plugin, which replaces a conventional WordPress theme, as this had an integrated gallery module that covered most of the functionality required.
The website is built using the the Breakdance plugin. Although it is actually a plugin it works in a similar way to a theme, but replaces the traditional WordPress theme. This works in the same way as the Oxygen builder, which is built by the same developers. Breakdance is a simpler alternative to Oxygen, and is easier for non-technical website owners to manage.
Take a look at the finished photographers website built with Breakdance for WordPress and let us know if you are a photographer that needs a new, fast-loading website for showing off your portfolio.
Here are a few other WordPress photography website examples.
