    Hi everybody
    I am searching a photography FREE (or very cheap) theme taht should look like a typical portfolio website, meaning that I don't need and don't want to have classic blog features such as comments, categories, tags etc etc.
    What I need is a static homepage with a large image (or a grid of multiple images), a simple menu (home, about, galleries, contacts) and a standard gallery structure.
    You can have a look at my actual flash website to see what I am looking for to have in WordPress
    Any suggestion?
    Thanks

    Thanks esmi, but as I said I don't want to have all those blogging features at all.

    But how do I set up a gallery, I mean a classic photo gallery where you can browse from one picture enlarged to the following one?

    You could install a gallery plugin. Or build your own photo gallery.

    I would rather go for a plugin, I am not very expertised at coding.
    So what you mean is that I can choose any theme and turn it's appearance and functionality into a photo gallery by using plugins and deactivating blog features (such comments, tags, etc)???

    Yes - although you may find that a photoblogging theme lends itself far more easily to the kind of overall look & functionality that you want.

    Yes, when I said any theme I meant to say a "any photoblog theme" in fact; thanks for your hints!

    Hi esmi
    I eventually choosed a Graphpaperpress theme, Fullscreen
    At this point I don't know how to create a gallery, do you have any suggestion about what plugin could be best at this goal?

    As you are using a commercial theme, you need to seek support from the theme's vendors.
