7+ Free HTML Photography Website Templates for 2021

Even in the era of Content Management Systems like WordPress, Joomla, etc., HTML is not losing its grip from the web. People still prefer it because of its simplicity. They have to give up on additional functionalities that are offered by other ways, but HTML still grabs its position among top ones.

For creating a website to showcase your photography work, you need an HTML template covering this niche. To help you further, I am adding a compilation of free HTML photography website templates here.

Most of the features of every template are same. You will find a difference in design and related elements, and that too not on a big level. If you want to use a better looking, better performing and feature full template, then you need to go for premium ones. And, I have already shared set of premium HTML templates for photography niche.

Spirit a Photographer Flat template


Flat design was really big back in 2014 and still very popular today. If you want to get in on the action, then Spirt template could be what you are looking for. The template is fairly minimalistic, but I can honestly say that I am impressed with the use of spacing and solute features. Such as the blurred background under their featured image. The menu and float icon looks fantastic on both PCs and smaller devices.
