The Selkie theme is a Multipurpose Blog & Portfolio Theme created for the Photography niche. With this theme, you get two for the price of one. You can either run a shop, a landing page with a blog theme, or just a regular blog without the shop and landing page. This makes this theme a business theme for professional bloggers or amateurs looking to make a little extra money.
The homepage has a big widget with the ability to upload a background image with overlaying text and a call-to-action box. This is a great way to show off your camera work or describe what the blog is all about. Get creative with this huge widget.
Under this widget are several more widgets of different sizes to set up. You get a sticky menu bar, side column, and a footer widget. There are detailed instructions that will help you mimic the demo version plus tell you how to get the shop up and running.
