About John Haldane

Hello! I am a published professional artist living in Asheville, North Carolina. My artwork has been featured in fine art galleries in Arizona and North Carolina, and in calendars, books, and magazines. The magazines include The Scenic, the Laurel of Asheville, The Writers & Artists Quarterly, COSTCO Magazine, Wild WNC News, Camera in the Wild Magazine, and more. I have had articles published in several of the these magazines as well.

My art is unique; created using cameras, software, digital tools, and/or acrylic paints. Sometimes I start with a photograph; sometimes I start with an idea on the computer; sometimes I paint. My art always begins in my head. It evolves in response to music I hear, the weather, or good vibrations (or maybe something I ate). Each piece is unique.

I am a member of the Carolina Nature Photographers Association (CNPA). I have also joined the Friends of the WNC Nature Center, the North Carolina Arboretum, The Great Smoky Mountains Association (Lifetime Member), the Blue Ridge Parkway Foundation (with license plate), and others because I believe in buying from local people and supporting local causes. I have donated art to numerous local charities.

I have over 20 years of experience using Adobe Photoshop and have honed my photography skills with more than 40 years of film and digital camera work.

The Asheville Regional Airport Gallery has twice shown my artwork. Cheddar’s Restaurant in Asheville purchased 3 prints that are on display in their dining area. My piece, “Leaves in Ice” placed in a CNPA competition called “Abstract Appalachia.” I will have a 'Uniquely Asheville' art show at the Green Sage Westgate, Asheville, April 15, 2016 - July 14, 2016. I have received additional awards granted by various organizations and websites including CNPA.

I started painting in the 1980s and recently returned to this medium. I paint in my private studio on Bohemian Lane in East Asheville where I live with my wife, Black Bears, raccoon, opossum, squirrels, rabbits, deer, and many birds (including turkeys).

In addition to this site, my art is available at the Kress Emporium on Patton Avenue in downtown Asheville.

If You Never Ask ...

February 4th, 2014

If You Never Ask … … you’ll never know. It is easy to be shy. It is far more comfortable to keep quiet, stay at a distance, never take chances. We are taught from an early age that gambling is bad and loses far more than it wins. Yet the biggest su... 

Planning

January 21st, 2014

I got to reminiscing about college when I realized that I graduated 40 years ago. Time sure flies! I was remembering my last semester when I only needed one required course and could fill 9 more hours with electives. So I took fun class like “Science... 

Before you enter any photo contests, read the rules... http://grandmemories.us/before-you-enter-any-photo-contest/ … My latest blog at http://grandmemories.us  

I am often asked how I “got the shot” that looks so good. The easy, smart-aleck answer is: I don’t “point and shoot.” The honest, and complicated, answer involves years of experience, accumulation of equipment, and using the right stuff at the rig... 

Forest Fall

Today I'd like to take a hike Into the trees and woods I like With my two cameras in hand To survey this astounding land I'd see the birds and feel the breeze Spot butterflies and colored leaves I'd find the little bubbling creek And all the... 

A View from Behind the Lens

June 15th, 2012

I vote on almost all contests at FAA including those I do not enter. I am very careful and make my best judgments as to which images I deem worthy of a vote. When I enter a contest, I vote for my own because I never enter I contest unless I believe m...
