Full Bio

Mikey Gribbin is a photographer with a passion for fine art, travel and nature photography. These passions stem from his adoration for the outdoors and a love for hiking in the back-country with his wife at his side.

In 2014, Mikey received his Bachelors of Science Degree in Digital Art and Design from Full Sail University. While attending school, he continued his education outside of the classroom by directing a music video for Hard Rock Records, shooting photos for Redbull and building a multimedia brand called No Anchor. He received recognition for his photographs through online curators such as 500PX and National Geographic. In 2017, he participated in his first exhibition and was featured in Outside Magazine the following year. Since then, Mikey has entered and won multiple contests and has begun building a name for himself.

Unique landscapes and natural scenes with rich contrast are Mikey’s subjects of choice. His favorite photos are of the rare and uncommon. Places that present a challenge, whether creative, mental or physical, wield the most fulfilling and enthralling experiences, which, in turn, set the stage for the incredible photos he brings home from his travels. Mikey takes a conservative approach to fine art photography. In his editing, he exercises creative freedoms occasionally, but most photos undergo very basic adjustments such as exposure, color, distortion and minimal cloning.

Apart from having a family someday, Mikey has many aspirations, including the progression of his photography career and eventually the opening of his own gallery. Until then, he strives to build his repertoire and portfolio by entering contests (most recently winning a Tesla Model S), taking part in exhibitions worldwide and shooting as much as he can.

Mikey finds inspiration from the likes of Jeff Mitchum, BeJamin, Michael Shainblum, Joshua Snow, Ted Gore, Jack Brauer and many others. 

He currently resides in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho with his wife and true love, Emily.
