You can get a prophoto template. Yes a lot of people have it but it's SOOO customizable that you can make it look totally your own.

I like the platform pro theme from page lines. A lot of customization for a little.

Finding the same theme is very rare. When I was looking for themes. Some sites will list how many times each has been sold. Even for themes that are above 8000 sales.... I have never seen even ONE instance of it through normal web surfing looking at sites to get ideas. The only part that matters is what do your local competition have, and make sure it is different. If you are in WV.... does it really matter if some one in Utah has the same theme? I highly doubt people looking for a photographer in WV will stumble upon the guy in Utah. Most likely because they will have some sort of locating word to there search.

DC and Baltimore are part of my market area.


My village called. I was told that they missed me.

Speedotron users, untie!

The chance that you will have a website that closely matches one of your local competitors is low. Research other local photographers and build something different. Your clients most likely will not be searching other states, countries, or even cities when looking for a photographer.

A template can be changed totally to your liking.
I used the template Agentpress from Studiopress: http://www.studiopress​.com/themes (external link)
And here is what I made of it : http://LetPicturesTalk​.com (external link)
Just open both sites. Do you expect somebody using that template and making one that looks like mine? I doubt that. Wordpress is very flexible.

There are lots of nice-looking themes out there for way less than $500, and there are often sales/promo codes. I've looked at ThemeForest.net, ProPhoto blogs, and finally settled on a template by IntoTheDarkroom.

Should not matter. I doubt you will find someone with the same website, no less one that also has the same target audience.

The standard license is only for your sole use with whatever you're doing on your website. The extended license is if you plan on using that theme (or portions thereof) in something you're selling commercially or providing to a client(s).

Here's a good link that defines the differences: Themeforest License Differences (external link)

Overall, it's like someone wanting to buy a print off you for $80 (standard), or some corporation looking to use that same image on their advertising campaign for $1200 (extended). No, you do not eventually have to purchase the extended license if you're using it for your own website.

No one is looking at your theme. They are looking at your photos.

WE look at tons of sites daily so we think everyone else does as well. They don't.

Thats my site and its built on a theme used my quite a few music photographers. I could literally send you 5 right now.
