If you’re in the photography or arts trade and you want a website that looks as good as your best work, Shopify has a number of themes designed to show off your creative talents. As with all Shopify themes, these templates come with the eCommerce tools you need to sell your images or artwork – with a design for every style and budget.
Each theme in this list uses showcase images to illustrate your creative artwork on a homepage designed to grab attention, keep visitors on the page for longer and encourage them to buy your work. Many of these themes come with multiple styles to suit your brand image and highly customisable options to give you more control over the overall look of your website.
VineYard is an elegant eCommerce theme originally designed for wineries and stores, although its stark use of contrast and clean lines make it perfect for showcasing bold or black and white photography and artwork. This highly rated theme uses slick transition and animation effects to bring your work to life and entice visitors to stick around for longer.
Colour is a style preset of the Clean theme and it works a treat for displaying professional photography and artwork. The team at Clean Themes place full focus on your work, with a minimal combination of images, text snippets and subtle lines. This fully responsive theme makes your artwork looks its best on all devices and a simple two-click buying process means your work sells faster.
Vigo Shop is one of the most popular and versatile eCommerse themes at ThemeForest – making it ideal for all types of online professionals, including photographers and artists. Vigo Shop costs just $50 for a regular license and Xlent Themes offers a free installation service – ideal for Shopify first-timers. This theme is feature rich too, with custom widgets, product video options and MailChimp support for your email marketing efforts.
Vintage comes as one of the style presets of the Minimal theme, officially supported by Shopify. The Vintage preset uses chunky headings around large images in a clean, fully responsive layout for multiple devices. You don’t have to settle with the original design if you have something else in mind though, with additional layout settings, product views and typography options to help you make this them your own. Best of all, this theme and its three other style presets are absolutely free.
Startup is a bold eCommerse template with tons of attitude and ideal for photographers and artists who want to make a statement.
