Kristin Klus Photography at Thump Coffee, throughout the month of November 2009.

(BEND, OR) Scenes from Central Oregon by local photographer Kristin Klus are showcased at Thump Coffee in downtown Bend throughout November. Klus’s works bridge the gap between classic darkroom photography and newer digital techniques in the artist’s self-described quest to create photographs as “powerful as nature itself.”

“Photography is my way to share my adventures with the world,” says Klus. “My goal has always been to create photographs as powerful as nature itself by capturing the perfect lighting, angle, and exposure while in the field. The focus of my current collection is on capturing the beautiful landscapes and wildlife that I am so lucky to be exposed to here in Central Oregon.”

A native Oregonian who grew up with a strong love for the outdoors, Klus discovered a passion for photography in a high school photography class, and she pursued both academic training — earning a degree in photography — and hands-on experience working at a camera shop while attending Central Oregon Community College.

Klus’s work has been published in Photographers Forum magazine, and her photography can be found in businesses and private collections throughout Central Oregon. Visit her website at

Thump Coffee is located in downtown Bend at 25 NW Minnesota Ave. For details about art exhibits, coffee cuppings and other events, visit or call 541-388-0226.

Photo Caption: “Historic Old Mill” by Kristin Klus (hand-tinted black-and-white darkroom print, 12”x18”). “This photo was taken nine years ago. The pond has been bulldozed, and new buildings have blocked this angle entirely,” says Klus.
