If you're a photographer and you blog you MUST take a look at the Professional Photographer Theme Blog Template! I just purchased it last month for my photography blog and love it! If you've seen other blogs that have the beautiful 900 x 600 pixel images - this is more than likely where they got it!
It's super easy to use and Jared has included a ton of FAQs and Tutorials for those that choose the Do-It-Yourself Package (which I did). The ProPhoto Theme works with a WordPress blog and you can use your own domain name. I had no problem getting my fancy new blog up and running in about a day with the tutorials. Best part is the theme is customizable - change the colors, background, you name it - plus you can have a Flash header slideshow without spending a ton!
Be sure to check it out if you're in the market for a fancy new blog and not spending the big bucks. Plus Jared gave me a coupon code to share with everyone! Just use DANNE232B at checkout for an extra $10 off your new ProPhoto Theme purchase!
