    I'm also on Wordpress. It's easy to install and easy to extend. There are lots of handy, free plug-ins if you don't want to do coding.

    Clay,

    Thanks for pointing me in the direction of your articles. I was interested to learn of your use of Adobe Lightwave as I had not considered that approach. Could you describe in more detail how you apply Lightwave in your workflow from the scanning end; considering you're starting off with an analogue product in the form of a negative or print?

    Alec Soth just revamped his site using Wordpress and it looks good.

    Did millions of people suddenly disappear? This may have an answer.

    Another fan of wordpress here (www.davideisenlord.com), I used a theme from www.thethemefoundry.com but would also recommend Clay's suggestion of Thesis as it's very flexible.

    David,

    How do you see your theme in relation to 'Thesis'?

    Tom,
    I believe Thesis allows more customization without coding but it might take you a bit longer to get started. Thesis is really more like a "platform" or "framework" for a theme, rather than a hard coded theme. If that makes any sense.

    I did exactly this earlier this year using Word Press and Zenphoto after 5 years of a relatively dead, hard to update HTML self-coded site. WP oriented content management systems (CMS) make updating gallery content a breeze, while the "blogging" features can keep your site alive and current. No $ output to create the site in terms of software using my existing host, plenty of help on line, and a vigorous user community have made me a fan. Most web savvy gurus seem now to be recommending blogging tools over web-design software for site construction of all kinds.

    You can see my results here.

    Thanks to Clay and Ike, I'm a Wordpress user as well. I revamped my site earlier this year (thanks, Ike!), but it's still not complete. I've had other priorities come up in the mean time...

    My website is on Wordpress, based around a premium theme from www.prophotoblogs.com

    I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending the theme. Well worth the money for the time it saves messing with code. It is also VERY easy to customise.

    So ROL, what did you use for the gallery portion of the site? I think my beef with using blog software for this kind of thing is that it ends up looking like a blog, i.e. posts by date and category. Most of the examples I've seen, including the ones at the prophotoblogs site, follow in this vein. Which is great if you want a photoblog kind of thing...
