About Christine



Christine Cook is a recognized photographer, teaching coach of photography, active competition juror, and speaker.

“Whether the subjects are wild horses in the American west or chunks of ice on the sands of a volcanic beaches in Iceland, dynamic movement and interplay are always revealed. No element of her work is ever separate or static.” – Jack O’Brien, Curator, Naples Art Association

“We have been so lucky to have the honor of hanging Christine’s photography pieces on the walls of our non-profit organization, where we teach literacy skills to individuals who come from … around the world. Her beautiful photos of children and families from other nations brighten our offices, and serve as a daily inspiration and reminder that, no matter where you are from, you are an individual worthy of opportunity and respect. Thank you, Christine, for sharing these beautiful images with us.”
– Elaine Mayrides, Executive Director, Literacy Volunteers of Collier County, August
