Need to create WordPress based photo album

I have a WP site and find the format of Flickr a bit unworkable. For example, I want to provide a URL to my tour attendees, and show my photo library after they provide their First Name and an Email address.

Do you know of any WP plug ins that could help me create a virtual tour image photo gallery?

https://wordpress.org/plugins/search/photo+gallery+plugin returns 70 pages of results.

Likely best to test a few + pick one which seems best.

Hi newbieweb,

I hope you have not made your purchase yet. Please DO NOT buy this one:
https://themeforest.net/item/photography-responsive-photography-theme/13304399

I made a mistake of buying it and the support was horrible. When I complained about it they said we don't want to provide support to you and please claim a refund - I think that is out right rude. By the time it happened, I already invested a LOT of time in their useless theme(It was a charity work - I was not making a single penny out of it) and I did not have the luxury of time to go after another theme so I deployed their broken theme. They did provide a fix but then they were very weird when I dropped an email about it. They fixed it in next release but every now and then their updates break my site and I have to do restoration and wait for the next update and see if it gets fixed (TBH, I have stopped updating for last couple of months) - they have the numbers to show but I think it will work if you don't want to do any customization. A slightest of the customization and boom... the fragile code breaks.

I hope this will reach you in time.

Regards,
Chinmay.

I have  used themefusion for a couple sites with good success and typical support. (they get back to you in 8 to 24 hours)  The theme does have a gallery among other things.

Keep in mind, your requirement here is, " want to provide a URL to my tour attendees, and show my photo library after they provide their First Name and an Email address."   I don't know that the link David provides details that option.
