Over the years I’ve used photography wordpress themes from pretty much all the major providers. I recently found Minimal and fell in love with the simplicity of their themes. In my opinion, too many options on the backend can be overwhelming and I appreciate that Minimal keeps things simple. Another aspect that attracted me to Minimal was the site loading speed. Photo Buyers that are visiting my site need to move quickly through the imagery. If an image, or page, takes too long to load a prospective client may have already moved on. The customer support has also been very responsive and quick to supply a solution for any questions that I have had.
I’m a photographer. I don’t know anything about websites. So when I went to put one together, I wanted something that was simple, sleek, and hassle free. After surveying options like Kokin and Squarespace - sites that are specifically designed for photographers - I kept coming back to Minimal. It had the right feel, the right look, the simplicity, and the charm. It wasn’t easy deciding what route to take, so I went with my gut.
Over a year later my experience has been nothing but awesome. Any issues or questions that I have are answered quickly, and with service that goes above and beyond.
When looking to redesign my website I was drawn to the simplicity of WordPress, but I could not find a WordPress portfolio theme that presented my photographs in a non-distracting way. Minimal had by far the cleanest and most elegant themes for artists and photographers. Having never used WordPress previously I found the interface to be very easy and intuitive. Whenever I encountered an obstacle the support team was very responsive and helpful.
Minimal made it easy for me to create a beautiful online presence for my studio. By offering a straightforward solution and customer support I can trust, I am able to get off of the computer and back into the physical component of my work. My WordPress portfolio theme is clean, focused and defies the typical WordPress theme look.
When I was ready to create a website I spent a lot of time looking through different themes. I knew what I wanted in both the theme and the company that would provide it, but it wasn't easy to find what I was looking for. As soon as I discovered Minimal I knew the search was over. The portfolio theme I chose is pleasing to look at and has an art gallery-like feel, which was important to me.
I can tell that Minimal is run by people who really care about the business they are in and the clients they work with.
