The Best Free & Premium Minimalist Portfolio WordPress Themes

  (by )

If you’re a photographer, designer, artist, model, or architect, then you should considering creating a website to showcase images of your work.  WordPress, a free content management system, is easy to use, and there are tons of great WordPress portfolio themes available for you to choose from.

To help you find a great theme for your WordPress site, I’ve chosen several of my favourite free and premium minimalist portfolio templates.  If you really want to put the emphasis on your work, then minimalist portfolio themes are the way to go!

Minimalist portfolio themes have simple colour schemes and layouts, so visitors will focus on your work, not the template.  Plus, many of them include amazing features and effects, such as sliders, galleries, and transitions designed to show your images off in interesting and dynamic ways.
