The Montfort theme is a 3rd party Genesis Framework Theme created for the photography industry. This is a gorgeous theme suited specifically for photography with images being displayed beautifully all over the blog. The homepage consists of custom widgets that make this theme perfect for anyone in the photography industry. The first widget under the navigation bar can be used for a brief introduction to your history in the photography industry and to the right of this area is a responsive slider displaying images that you have taken.
You have an autoresponder box that consists of widgets to display the latest blog posts and any services that you may provide. You also have the ability to use this theme as an online store. Do search through our Genesis Framework category for free customization tips.

Please keep in mind that you will need to have the Genesis Framework already installed on your blog. The cost of the framework is $59.95. This will get you a lifetime membership and free updates for the framework, which is an awesome deal.
If you are a developer, you know you can customize these themes on your own for your clients and add more money to your packaged deals. The Pro Plus StudioPress package is perfect for professional bloggers and developers. Check out the details below.
