My name is Mickey Grebe and I'm a pet photographer, dog lover, and former Texas A&M student located in Houston, Texas. I grew up in the best state in the USA and continue to do what I love here.
My love for dogs goes back to my childhood and my first dog, Daisy. Daisy was an English Bulldog who taught me what it's like to love unconditionally and how incredibly influential a dog can be. Ever since Daisy, I have had an undeniable love for all dogs and a passion for all animals furry, scaly, and feathered. Now, I have a Dalmatian named Louie who is my animal sidekick and best friend. Louie has taught me to be more responsible and more active in my life, and for that I am incredibly thankful (except the time he decided he wanted to run a marathon).
I first started working with dogs during undergrad as a kennel technician. To me, it never felt like a real job, because I'm constantly surrounded by the things I love most. Going to work is one of my favorite parts of the day because I get be surrounded by a slew of different breeds and an array of personalities. Currently, I run the What's Up Dog Daycare facility in Spring Branch where I get to hang out with the same amazing dogs every week.
I started taking professional pictures of dogs in March 2018 and it has become my life's passion. Before I'd ever thought of making this hobby into a career, I used to take pictures of dogs on my phone at my job. After realizing how much I loved it, I decided to take the next step and start using a DSLR to take dog pictures. I had no idea what I was doing, but I loved doing it. Since then I've learned so much about photography, editing, and dogs, and each day I am still learning more. My passion has taken me to photograph dogs in locations like Big Bend National Park and New York City. Since starting, I've been fortunate enough to have a private session with Texas A&M's first lady, Miss Reveille. I hope to push my photography further in the future by traveling to more exciting places and photographing as many dogs as I can.
