The Best Photography Website Templates

Last Updated February 28 2024

The best photography websites are a showcase for photos. They are designed to be clean and uncluttered for the photos to take center stage—like in real-life photo galleries.

Of course, there’s more to a good photography website than just a collection of stunning images surrounded by whitespace. It is also a place to share your unique approach, client testimonials, and other important details that give potential clients a deeper understanding of your work.

Moreover, a good photography website is also a good website, i.e., it has easy-to-use navigation, it is responsive/mobile-friendly, it has CTAs at obvious places, it can have ecommerce to sell photos, it can have a blog to tell stories behind pictures, etc.

The best photography website templates are made keeping all the above in mind. I went through hundreds of them to make this collection of the best photography website templates.

I have ensured you get to see the whole range of templates:

Beaumont: a Squarespace template.

Beaumont has the clean and simple yet sophisticated design language of Squarespace that users love. It’s great for photography websites and other portfolio websites where the work’s photos (for example, art, graphic design, UI design screenshots, etc.) are the focus.

The Beaumont homepage doubles as the work section with its two-column, big portfolio item thumbnails. Individual portfolio items contain full-screen width images and a simple description as placeholders — but as with any Squarespace template, you can change it as you like. The minimal design—white background with black text surrounded by plenty of whitespaces—is reflected in all pages, including About and Contact.

Ortiz: a Squarespace template.

The header title of the Ortiz template demo reads “Ortiz Photography,” making it clear the template is for photographers. However, it also has the qualities to make great personal websites - a well-designed About page, an individual’s photo and other details in the hero section, an About section on the homepage, etc.

I won’t classify this template as minimal, but it looks sleek and has ample negative space to let each section shine. The demo colors, typography, and photos look eye-catching. At the same time, the functional elements are also taken care of - the hierarchy is ideal, there’s space for testimonials and portfolio items, the navigation bar has links to the most important pages (Gallery and Book Me), and the call to action buttons are appropriately placed throughout the website.

Reseda: a Squarespace template.

The Reseda template has a certain style: It has bold titles on one side and lightface descriptions on the other; the photos/portfolio items are arranged in an atypical fashion (i.e., not your typical grid); the design looks a bit cluttered, yet it is technically clean.

Its visual focus with neutral colors and ample whitespace makes it a great template for highlighting photography. Moreover, simple typography and clear categorization of collections contribute to the template’s modern and professional feel.

Nevins: a Squarespace template.

Nevins is very similar to Beaumont in that its homepage doubles as the portfolio pages and has a simple photo grid to showcase work. The main difference is Nevins’ demo includes smaller thumbnails and three columns instead of two. Similar to Beaumont, individual portfolio items contain full-screen width images and a simple description as placeholders.

In addition, Nevins also has a blog page that’s labeled as “Behind The Lens” on the demo. It’s minimal and great for photographers who want to tell stories behind their shots or projects.

Tepito: a Squarespace template.

This Squarespace template is perfect for showcasing portfolios and introducing the person behind it. It has a minimalist design, monochromatic color palette, clean typography, and simple layout. It’s ideal for professionals, artists, freelancers, and creatives who want to highlight their work in a visual manner.

Matsuya: a Squarespace template.

Matsuya’s web design style is minimalist, with an emphasis on visual content. It uses a grid-based layout to display images in various sizes (sort of a masonry grid), making it a good choice for photo galleries. You can click on any image to see it in full size.

The monochrome palette helps keep the photos in focus. Plus, the simple navigation, with a clear menu linking to different photo categories, helps visitors go through the work with ease.

The template is ideal for creative professionals to showcase their work and includes social media links in the footer.

Quinn: a Squarespace template.

Quinn is a modern and clean portfolio template with bold typography, ample white space, and high-quality imagery. The large, red “PORTFOLIO” title immediately draws attention, while the minimalistic layout keeps the focus on the work.

The straightforward navigation and monochromatic color palette add a professional and edgy feel to the design.

This template is suitable for creative professionals who need to showcase their work in a visually compelling way. It includes sections for selected works, latest projects, and a client list, plus contact information and social media links.

Charlie Knox: a Wix template.

This modern Wix photography template’s homepage is like a splash page with a full-screen photo and space for a title. But it has a navigation that takes you to all the important pages of a photographer’s website.

The template has pre-built pages for both portfolios and albums, i.e., you can show your work in the form of photo galleries of particular projects (example: a gallery of photos from a particular wedding) as well as individual photos under particular categories (example: portraits, wedding photos, etc.).

Connor Kane: a Wix template.

This Wix template showcases modern and minimalist web design. It emphasizes visual content with ample space, bold colors, and simple navigation. It’s ideal for professional photographers or visual artists who want to showcase their work in a gallery-like online space.

On the functional side, this template allows you to showcase your work front and center while giving visitors the option to explore further work under the particular presented project. Plus, of course, it has the usual pages: contact, about, and links to social media profiles.

Elizabeth Bach: a Wix template.

This template’s minimalistic background and gallery-style presentation make it a great choice for professional photographers who want to showcase their photo gallery front and center. Visitors can learn about each photo by clicking on it.

Benjamin Diaz: a Wix template.

This vibrant and playful-looking template has a masonry grid layout that uses contrasting colors against a clean white background to draw the viewer’s attention. It’s demo work, of course, but if your photos are as good as the demo, your site will look as good as the demo.

I’d say it’s great for showcasing creativity and artistic flair. The unconventional placement of images and bold typography reflects an artistic and contemporary brand identity.

The contact information and social media links at the bottom, plus a simple and accessible contact form, make it easy for clients to connect.

Joe J.R: a Wix template.

This Wix template is a visually appealing design that highlights high-quality imagery with a clean and minimalist aesthetic.

It’s suitable for photographers, artists, and creatives to showcase their work in various categories, as the categorization in the template demo is straightforward and that would reflect in your actual site. Moreover, the cohesive color scheme and use of whitespace create a professional and polished look.

Wild Life: a Wix template.

Obviously, this template is meant for wildlife photographers. Still, it’ll work for anyone who wants to showcase a photography portfolio, sell their work, share their bio, and publish about their work through a blog.
