Photo of Johnna


Johnna Haskell is the free lance photographer behind Johnna Haskell 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 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 loons and moose. One can experience Johnna’s connection to nature through her images which capture natural wildlife behavior.

Johnna has a PhD in curriculum studies/science education from the University of British Columbia, Vancouver, B.C. She completed her MSEd in educational leadership from the University of Southern Maine. She attained her BS degree in animal science at the University of New Hampshire while minoring in studio art and outdoor education.

She is the author of several journal articles on experiential practices in the outdoors and co-edited a book, “Unfolding Bodymind: Exploring PossibilityThrough Education,” and has started the journey to publishing magazines and books as seen on the cover of the DownEast Book about Sugarloaf Mountain.

"I am an adventurer who is passionate about experiencing life to its fullest. You can do anything you put your mind body to achieving. I love the feeling of being "in the zone" while climbing mountains, skiing, photographing, creating, or my new endeavor of paragliding. It is only a matter of perception that aids us in experiencing our potential or living the (im)possible! 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."
