I use a shell script for things like that. For example,

1. create a list of raster to export in a text file:
     ls /LOCATION/MAPSET/cellhd > list.txt

2. create a script "export.sh" something like:
     while read f
             g.region rast=$f
             r.out.tiff -t input=$f output=$f

3. run the script:
     ./export.sh < list.txt
