Ross Ragland Theater is displaying photographs from around Klamath and Lake counties by Terry Spivey, who operates a professional photography business out of Bly. Spivey has lived in the Klamath Basin since 1986, and was born in Idaho.
Spivey’s display is full of photographs from nature, including subjects like wild horses, bighorn sheep and bobcats. He also offers wedding photos, senior portraits and photographs of families and special events.
During his youth, Spivey was encouraged to develop his artistic talents by his mother, capturing elements of nature and wildlife on film. Spivey felt he was blessed with a small amount of artistic ability, and sold drawings and paintings when he was younger.
Later on, he joined the Forest Service, working in a number of positions. Eventually, he began taking photographs for the Service, and decided to start his own photography business in 2005.
His display features around 30 pictures, printed on canvas or heavy duty print paper, matted and framed. The photographs can be seen at the Ragland Theater, Tuesday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., located at 218 N. 7th St. in Klamath Falls.
