Do it like the Pros do with Sidewinder Premium WordPress theme from GraphPaperPress. Sidewinder is a beautiful horizontal side-scrolling photography child theme that uses the Base theme framework for WordPress. This classic and timeless theme wonderfully shows off your best images keeping the focus on your photographs and not on the theme itself.
Professional photographers have no problem displaying landscape-oriented photographs on different devices but displaying pictures in portrait mode can be a bit challenging what with all the extra space around the image. Sidewinder’s side-scrolling galleries addresses that issue allowing you to showcase each image in full. A little chain icon on the lower right of each image acts as a filter for the portfolio. This theme also works well on mobile devices.
Overall, Sidewinder Premium WordPress Theme is a solid photography theme any professional photographer will be quite happy with. Even Scott Kelby thinks so.Sidewinder Theme: $99 | Demo & Download
