Photographers, and artists in general, need to have an online presence for their business. It could open many doors of opportunity and get their work in front of more people. We have already covered plenty of attractive WordPress themes for photographers. What if you want to use a framework such as Thesis or Genesis to build your site? You will have to pick up an attractive child theme. Stage 2 happens to work for both frameworks.
Stage 2 has everything you need to promote your photos online. It has built-in gallery and portfolio support. The front-page looks pretty clean and good looking. The gallery uses lightbox to provide your visitors with a more dynamic experience. The theme has useful shortcodes and is HTML5 ready. The design is responsive. You even get a responsive landing page template. Want to maintain a side-blog? No problem.
Stage 2 is compatible with Genesis and Thesis 2.x. As long as you are familiar with those frameworks, you are going to find customizing this theme easy. It is image-friendly, responsive, and Retina ready. There is a lot to like about the new design.
