Free WordPress Photography Theme by SLR Lounge

By Christopher Lin on March 10th 2015

Important: While this theme will still function as intended, it is no longer supported.

We are excited to bring you our newest WordPress Photography Theme!

Around 5 years ago, we launched our first WordPress theme for photographers, which was downloaded thousands of times. Since then, much has changed.  HTML5 was introduced and the world moved towards responsive design.  Flash became obsolete and web design moved towards minimalism.  So an update was overdue!

After a full year of development, we finally finished it. Oh yeah, and it’s still FREE!!! (for a limited time) Here are the main features of the our newest theme.

Responsive Design

Whether you’re on an Desktop, Tablet or Phone, your Website will look great. Use our responsive, mobile-friendly theme!


Live Visual Editing

Our WordPress theme for photographers features a live view of your edits. This allows you see all of the changes you make without having to reload another page.

    I love the theme thank you for providing such a professional theme free and with no watermarkings. I am having trouble though, my plugins with shortcodes aren’t working. Specifically my contact plugin. The shortcodes don’t seem to be recognized in the theme and it just shows the shortcode text instead of loading the plugin on the page. Is there a support place?

    It is a good theme.. but needs more documentation. With a good documentation and some forum support this could be a great tool for photographers.

    Hi guys,… First at all I want to thank you for this awesome theme is really helpful and intuitive.
    I need a little of your support with two things that I don’t know how to do.
    a- I want to display on my index (home page) the list of projects, as on this example that you provide
    How do I configure it?
    b. I can’t setup the contact us form, I mean the form was created but i can’t set an receiver email.

    Thanks in advance

    What a lovely theme! Is this still available for download/purchase? I’m already subscribed to the newsletter so can’t get to the downloads page that way.

    Great theme, love it! Is it possible to disable the search menu item in the header menu or to move it? I want my contact page to be the last option.

    This is great, thank you! Is it possible to set up the portfolio individual page to use the grid layout (pin full) instead of the carousel?

    Love this theme! I spent today upgrading my website from v2, installing and customising. Thanks for helping me look good SLR Lounge ;-)

    Is anyone having trouble using the Portfolio mode for the front page?

    My specific problem is when I make the individual Projects, there is no option to add a “Featured Image” so the Portfolio template I made just has blank squares with the project names in it. I followed Chris’s directions I found on another post on how to make the Portfolio template the Home page….
