If you are a photographer and want to share your work with the right audience, then there’s no better option than a digital medium. Your photos deserve a portfolio website to showcase your hard work and ultimately earn from them.
So how do you start making a photography website? One way is to spend a hefty amount of money to let the professionals do it all for you. The other is to do it yourself. But how does a non-technical user use the latter method without being technically sound and well-acquainted with coding programs?
Well, it is possible through a more innovative option. In fact, you can launch your photography website in just a few minutes with a couple of clicks.
Wondering how? Skip to this section to learn the steps to get started with the revolutionary Cloudways Photography Bundle.
Let’s walk through the struggles that non-technical users typically face while building a photography website and learn how the Cloudways Photography Bundle simplifies all the complexities for you to be the best choice for all users.
Why Creating a Photography Website Is Too Technical for Beginners
Building a photography website from scratch can be a big scary thought for beginners. But there are multiple page builders and themes that make the job easier, no?
Well, it is not as easy as it sounds. Even getting started with these codeless tools requires you to make complicated choices about the right website builder, plugins, and themes. Choosing the right theme, plugin, or website builder requires some degree of customization and technical knowledge to decide what would work best for your photography website.
Sure, there are hundreds of listicles that may guide you on the best-selling tools, plugins, or themes, but it is a difficult task to ensure they’re optimal for your photography website.
If you listen to the wrong advice, you could end up with an average photography website that eventually fades away in the ocean of other mediocre websites. Or worse, you could choose plugins or themes that clash with each other, leading to site errors that drive potential clients away.
What you need is a smooth performance from a portfolio website enriched with the right elements to stand out above the ordinary and mark its presence, ultimately generating more leads.
The chances of making such a website are minimum with the traditional approach. You want a modern tool that packs all you need in one place. Here’s when the Cloudways Photography Bundle jumps into play.

Our research team and experienced technical professionals collaborated to test and shortlist the best plugins, themes, and all the other elements needed for an ideal photography website. That’s right – it’s all the needed ingredients in one bundle to deliver a complete solution.
The Cloudways Photography Bundles includes the following plugins essential for a photography bundle, among many other plugins:
Envira Gallery Lite
Envira is a robust plugin that allows all users to create stunning photos and video galleries with its easy-to-use drag and drop builder.
We included this plugin in our bundle since it is user-friendly and optimized for maximum speed. Gaining immense popularity among photographers, bloggers, and designers, its pre-built templates and responsive forms make it a valuable tool for all photographers.
With Envira, you can import your Instagram images, add the Pinterest Pin It button, integrate WooCommerce, easily organize your albums, add watermarking, and perform all the other activities needed for a seamless photography website experience.
The Cloudways Photography Bundle includes the responsive Blocky theme and the Blocksy Companion plugin to accelerate the building process through its vast starter sites library.
It enables users to use the extra header builder features and have ample control over their website’s performance via additional options. Also, you may activate the extensions ecosystem to turn on and off specific functionalities as needed.
Stackable is yet another plugin in our bundle that lets you build dynamic websites with powerful yet lightweight custom blocks, interactive UI kits, and ready-made designs. This plugin converts the Gutenberg editor into a page builder, allowing you to create attractive photography websites.
Its pre-built block designs and UI kits allow you to kickstart your designing process. We have specially included this plugin in our bundle as we don’t want our users to get tangled with design intricacies. Instead, you get to use ready-to-go designs that you can customize to suit their requirements.
Moreover, this plugin transforms your page-building experience by letting you integrate a variety of popular tools, including WPML, Toolset, Google Fonts, Blocksy, and more.
Your photography website will require contact forms on one point or another – but again, a non-technical user may not know how to add them. We have made it easy by including WPForms in the Cloudways Photography Bundle so you can create all types of stunning contact forms instantly.
With the easy drag and drop contact form builder, every beginner can build their own forms or use the existing templates and simply fill it up as per their needs.
Moreover, this plugin’s contact forms are very responsive and mobile-friendly. Want to decorate your form with even more elements? You can customize and extend the form via section dividers, custom CSS, and HTML blocks.
