John Cooke

Guest Photographer

Always passionate about Cape May, John Cooke has been a full time resident since 2004. And he’s no stranger to the sunrises here. You can blame that on his seven-year-old Golden Retriever Joy.

You’ll often see him downtown loading his Canon camera with pictures of sunrises, landscapes and Cape May visitors.

An unofficial ambassador for all things Cape May, John now regularly blogs at, actively tweets from @cookecapemay and has an avid Instagram following by the same name.
