George LaGrange Cook (1849 - 1919) was a photographer in Charleston, South Carolina. He was the son of photographer George Smith Cook, who took photographs during the American Civil War.[1][2] The Gibbes Museum of Art has a collection of his photographs.[3] He took images of buildings, residences, and streets, and portraits.

When his father moved to Richmond, Virginia in 1880, he took over his Charleston studio[4] at 281 King Street. He later relocated to 265 King Street.[5] His brother Huestis P. Cook took over their father's studio in Richmond after his death. Huestis is known for his photographs of African Americans.

Cook produced a series of photos titled Cook's Earthquake Views of Charleston and Vicinity after the 1886 Charleston earthquake.[6]
