In Marquam, Oregon you find yourself in a spectacular pastoral setting, minutes from the forests of the Cascade Mountains and all of their offerings and grandeur, as well as on the eastern edge of the fertile Willamette Valley, not far from the rustic end of the Oregon Trail, amidst abundant farms, wineries, and ranches.

Throughout the spring & summer workshops are offered at the Abiqua studio. Originally built as a produce and meat locker in the '30's, the space has been repurposed for creative endeavors. Complete with high speed internet, traditional darkroom, film, and digital capabilities, strobes, et al... this location is approximately 45 minutes south of the Portland International Airport and imbedded in the natural world.

In every workshop Mr. Deshler relates the creative process to finding your authentic voice with a mix of studio and location experiences designed to enhance and educate your creative muscle while generating new synaptic connections.
