Simeon Hook Photography



Simeon Hook lives on Long Island, New York and is an artist at heart. He loves to travel and capture images and has been taking pictures since childhood. What began as a  pastime became a hobby and has now, in his retirement, become a passion. Simeon is mostly self-taught; books, internet, and many trial and error photo shoots as well as individual photography courses. He has traveled extensively in the United States and has visited more than twenty-five countries. While he is interested in all types of subject matter, his background in architecture (B. Arch.) and city and regional planning (Ms. and Ph.D.) coupled with his travel, have predisposed him to “travel photography”, with an emphasis on architecture and landscape. The photos displayed in the “galleries“, many of which are award winning, and published, represent a sample of the more than ten thousand images in his files.
