Thank you for visiting this page!
My name is Rob Greebon and I’m a full-time professional landscape photographer based in the Texas Hill Country. My job is to provide unique and high quality prints and digital files for my clients. I drive endless miles, hike and scout out the best locations, both near and far, and hope for the colorful sunrises and sunset we all love.
I currently have five books in publication (Big Bend National Park, Texas Wildflowers, San Antonio, and two from Austin, Texas). I also work with Texas Highways Magazine (cover, October 2019), Texas Parks and Wildlife, colleges and universities across the state, and many developers.
Over the years, I’ve fine-tuned my skills while photographing some of the most remote locations in Texas, especially those in Big Bend Ranch and Big Bend National Park. I also strive to maintain strong
relationships with the state parks, as evidenced by my collaboration with TPWD. Since I live in the Hill Country, I have worked with several local parks, including Enchanted Rock, Pedernales Falls, and Westcave Preserve.
Over the years, I’ve continued to grow my network of clients. I currently enjoy good working relationships with several of the state’s leading magazines, including Texas Highways Magazine (both the magazine and calendar), Texas Parks and Wildlife Magazine, Backpacker Magazine, and several national publishers. Other clients include the University of Texas, Texas A&M, West Texas A&M, the Milago, Fox 7 News, the Audobon Society, McDonalds, Chilis, Hyatt Hotels, law firms, hospitals, and more. In the Archer Hotel in north Austin, one of my wildflower images is shown in repeating patterns covering 120 feet in length. The Phillips 66 plant in Houston has over 60 of my prints hanging on their walls on large canvas. I’ve won the Texas Hill Country Alliance photography contest a few times, and have had other images place in the top three in past exhibitions.
For prints and canvas, I work closely with a local printer in Austin -- Steve Porter at DTW Art and Framing. Steve and I have worked together for over 10 years and he does excellent work. I trust him with my livelihood because of his eye for detail and genuine attention to each file I send him, thus ensuring all clients walks away happy.
That said, I do have another side. I am a fourth generation Texan and reside in Dripping Springs with my wife and two girls -- precious little princesses who are growing up too quickly. My waking hours consist of either working/editing photos, driving to a location to camp and shoot, or toting my girls to after-school practices. My older daughter plays on a championship soccer team and takes vocal lessons from Mairead Carlin, former singer with Celtic Woman, and my younger plays soccer and is a math whiz (she did not get that from me!) Keeping up with kids is a lot harder that I thought it would be - from soccer tournaments to science fairs - and my girls did not come with a manual. Most of the time I think I’m inadequate as a dad, but they seem to love me anyway. Taking care of my two little ones and my wife is something I wouldn’t trade for anything. And they are still sleeping most mornings when I have to leave to shoot somewhere.
As I am always on a quest for good light and color in the sky, ninety-five percent of my images are taken at sunrise or sunset. It is not easy to roll out of bed an hour or two or three before dawn. Most times I’d much rather stay in the sack where it is nice and warm. Still, I know my efforts are often rewarded with the quiet solitude that comes with the advent of day. It's a bonus when your work can rejuvenate you.
Yes, I prefer to be outside most of the time.
I’m a detailed person about some things (photography, digital processing, planning travel, cooking). Other things, not so much.
I am fortunate enough to have shot from many of the highest high-rises of the Austin skyline, as well as the tallest peak in Texas (Guadalupe Peak) several times, Emory Peak (tallest point in Big Bend), and the iconic El Capitan (Guadalupe Mountains National Park), and even Oso Mountain (the highest summit in Big Bend Ranch State Park – and there is no trail leading up!). Conversely, I've climbed and shot from 31 of the tallest peaks in Colorado, including the three highest summits in the Rocky Mountain State.
And speaking of Colorado, I also operate website for the Centennial State, as well. We usually spend our summers up there, as well as a little time in the winter when snow is on the ground, and I hope to be spending more time up there as my kids get older. It is a beautiful state with a lot to offer, ranging from canyons in the western half of the state and prairie land on the eastern slope to high Rocky Mountain Peaks running down the center.
My images have been purchased for commercial use by law firms, real estate agencies, and hospitals, as well as by numerous individuals for personal use. I've even won a few awards along the way. If you have any questions or are interested in licensing or purchasing prints or digital files, please do not hesitate to contact me. My printers and I will work to fill your needs for photography, whether it is for prints and display, for marketing, or website use.
Safe travels to everyone!
