Introducing Lookbook: a beautiful photography mosaic


Lookbook is a vertical mosaic styled portfolio WordPress theme designed to beautifully showcase the breadth of your talent upon landing on your website. We developed Lookbook to help your visitors develop a more intimate connection with the scope of your work and your artistic voice.


Lookbook comes with a new ‘lookbook’ feature that enables your visitors to curate samples of your work through your website. These images are bundled in a protected PDF and emailed to the user for closer inspection. This helps your visitors intimately engage with your artwork while allowing you to generate a mailing list of potential fans and clients.

  • Photo Mosaic – Lookbook uses featured images to showcase your work in an eye-catchingly beautiful mosaic directly on the front page of your website.
  • Minimalist Menu – Lookbook has a minimalist menu with icons that appears when clicked, allowing your visitor’s browing experience to focus on the photographs you’ve chosen to feature in the front page of your website.
  • Lookbook – Your visitors can create small protected PDF lookbooks showcasing your work.
  • Develop a Subscriberbase – The Lookbook feature requires your visitor to input his e-mail address in order to download the lookbook he has curated. This helps them develop a more intimate connection with your work and allows you to start developing or expanding your newsletter subscriptions. If you don’t have one this would be a great way to start a list!
  • Simple set up – No more fumbling through complicated code or dense customizations. Use the theme customizer to personalize you site with different fonts, colors, logos and backgrounds.
  • Responsive Design – As with all of our themes, Lookbook is welcomed by devices of all shapes, sizes and origins.

E-Commerce Integration

Sell Media, our free e-commerce plugin for photographers, is neatly integrated into Lookbook, making it an incredibly powerful theme to sell prints and digital downloads through. Using Sell Media you can easily create a shop or create galleries for your clients to browse through prior to downloading or purchasing your work.

How will you use Lookbook?

Are you trying to find a way to present your work and wow your clients? Trying to set up a new photo gallery? Lookbook can help. We’re really excited to see what you guys will do with the theme. If you have any suggestions or comments please leave them in the section below.

    Looks good! Does the Subscriberbase let itself to be exported somehow? I would like it to be able to append to my mailchimp list for example

    Wow! I love the integration with the Sell Media Plugin! Nice work guys. Now… Which site do I want to use it on first? Hmmm. *Running fingers through beard.

      Thanks Matt. I’m totally jealous of the beard. I’ve tried for years, but simply cannot grow one.

    Nice. There’s a visual error in the phone size demo. If you scroll towards the bottom, you’ll see the boxes get jumbled. Thought I’d let ya know. Nice theme though 🙂

      Thanks for bringing this to our attention. The iframe demo switcher is to blame. The demo switcher is a total PITA to work with, but, the UX is nice so we keep it there.

    Scrolled down on opening demo page (home page), looked great. Scrolled back up and dude in striped shirt is decapitated, just below chin. Probably a minor tweak will fix this expertly designed work.

      Decapitated? Deadly! We’ll look into this.

    Love the theme and how it works.Is there a way to create custom pages as well e.g. Blog and About pages?

    1. Graph Paper Press Avatar

      Yes, there sure is. There is a Blog page template and a Sell Media page template. It also includes custom templates for Sell Media items and archives, too.

        Would be nice to see the blog page template in the demo, if possible.

    I am installing the theme right now for my concept art portfolio. Excited about it. Love the look!

    Is there a way to customize the Lookbook pdf?
    Add a logo, change fonts, etc?

    During testing, I also noticed that not all the jpgs that I saved for a lookbook are actually showing up in the PDF, some just show the filename, not the jpg, even though it all shows neatly online, while editing the content for the Lookbook prior to have it sent.

    My website is currently in maintenance mode, so I cannot show it to you. But maybe you are aware of this and know why it might happen?

    The Lookbook feature would be highly appreciated by my clients, but only if the selected images really show up in there.

    All the files are JPGs of at least medium quality. Wildly different sizes (pixels), though.

    I am transitioning the content from my previous theme “Gridspace” – which unfortunately is quite a bit of work because GS is based on blogposts & portfolios while LB is based on blogposts alone.

    Love the theme. Thinking about switching to this theme from Sidewinder, but is there any option to change the menu style or location?

    Hello there!!! Well you are really doing an significant job
    for WordPress users. If anybody wants to grab more and more traffic to their
    website, he/she will have to choose right WordPress theme like theme must
    possess responsive and retina ready features.

    As you have mentioned beautiful photography theme which I
    have just seen its demo also. Seriously it is an awesome WordPress themes and I was actually looking forward to download that type of WordPress themes. I have seen plenty of websites such as wordpress(.)org, nulledirectory.com or freewptheme(.)com as well. But you have actually displayed a nice WP theme.

    Quick question, how do I change the number of posts on the first page before the “older posts” link appears at the bottom? Is there a way to have it continuously load posts and never ask you to click “older posts?”

    1. Dave Avatar

      I currently have 10 before the “older posts” link shows up.

      1. James Avatar

        Did you ever get this figured out? I have the same question.

        1. Dave Avatar

          Yep, to fix this, go to Settings > Reading > Blog pages show at most. Set posts to the number of images you want to see on the home page. It is controlled by Word Press, not the theme.
