In this post you will actually find two sources of inspiration: photography (which you must admit is indispensable to any graphic artist), and a specific type of design: that for photographers’ portfolios websites. Right from the start you will surely notice that the photographer’s sites are quite different from all the other creative portfolio sites that we’ve looked at so far. For a photographer, the site should be an almost invisible, in any case, non-disturbing, frame for his photography. This is why extremely minimalist design is preferred or photos tend to expand all over the screen and create the graphics of the site in themselves. Probably because of the nature of photography, which is like capturing frozen memories of fleeting, shifting moments in time, most photographers seem to have a preference for static websites, where you can take your time to concentrate on individual frames or pictures.

Best Photographer Portfolio Website Designs

No more will you find bewildering, shifting backgrounds, that seem to slip through your fingers or that you need to explore step by step! In photographers’ sites clear, global vision is preferred, with a strong focus on the pictures themselves, which become the leading actors on the scene.

Of course, you’ll find unconventional site structures, but this time the tendency is to play with fragments of the photography for instance, or with ways of rearranging it, and to focus on minimalist or conceptual typography and graphics. And, in fact, the photography displayed completely deserves stealing the spotlight! It is indeed a strong visual element of the site and overworking its graphics would actually mean crowding it in this case. You’ll surely enjoy this perfectly balanced show of extremely expressive and inspiring photos and site designs that complement them!
