I love to keep myself updated on the last themes out in the market. I am subscribed to most of the newsletters. I want to see what is up there, what is new. WordPress is evolving so quickly and as a result new themes come out in the market on a regular basis. Some of theme are really outstanding. There is a small fee to pay for most of theme but, hey, look at the work done and you realize how $40-50 is really a small amount of money.
There is not really a priority in the list below. It all comes out to the personal taste and to the fact that you want to give more of a blog view or a portfolio view, or a again a travel photo blog view.
This theme is a bit of news and a bit of photo …well better say a visual photo blog. I really like the main page. It gives all the last posts with the photos in a mosaic view. Below, the posts are shown in a more exhaustive view. Connections to Facebook, Twitter and other social environments are all there in a nice clean way
This is a full page portfolio with a blog on the side. You load your best pictures for the home page, you can create you portfolio, organised by section, and you can keep your blog updated on the side. In this case your work is the main attraction of the website, the blog comes second.
Another professionally built photo showcase. What I loved of it is that the photos keep shifting giving straight away a view of the work done by the photographer. The blog side is not as great and not a reason to choose this theme. It is ready made for the IPad and Android Tablets which is awesome
