About Johnna Haskell Photography
Johnna Haskell is a Maine based free lance photographer. Johnna was a science educator, administrator, and university teacher for over 18 years before shifting her passion to photographing the natural world. As a young child, she enjoyed viewing her grandparents’ slides of wildlife. Johnna is a native of Maine and now resides in the mountains of Carrabassett Valley, ME, where she views wildlife and natural landscapes directly through her camera lens.
She has explored the outdoors via canoe, kayak, skis, rock and ice climbing, backpacking, mountaineering, and paragliding. Her current pursuits have been climbing ascents of Denali (20,320 feet) and her last adventure was an attempt to paraglide off the summit of Kilimanjaro (19,341 feet) as one of the first female pilots from the United States for a major charity event.

When she is not traveling the world flying a paraglider or climbing mountains, she turns her eye to the wildlife found all around us with a particular fondness for capturing natural wildlife behavior of loons, moose, the unique floral, or Maine scenic.
Johnna has received many awards of her Maine images of loons, moose, and Eagle. Her work is located in many private collections and featured in local New England galleries.
"My portfolio of images gives a sense of my love of wildlife and nature that I experience when out in the wilderness. Each of my photographs peek into the natural world all around us."
Johnna welcomes the challenge of commission work and is open to travel as she may well be in your area exploring nature.

She completed her MSEd in educational leadership from the University of Southern Maine.
