Greg Blankenship / Gregory’s Greenhouse Productions / Knoxville
Lenz Photography LLC of Knoxville presents Greg Blankenship of Gregory’s Greenhouse Productions.
As many of you know, the Lenzes bought our first house this past May. We were lucky enough to find the perfect location close to downtown Knoxville with a large detached garage that we converted into our new photography studio. Now, we mention that because whether you’re a friend, family member, or client, the first thing everyone usually comments on is all the amazing plants! From the front yard, to the large planter pots outside the studio entrance, to the dozens of plants in the sunroom gallery we have really put some time and effort into decking the place out with as many plants as possible! A portion of our prolific plant collection wouldn’t be possible without Greg.
The first time we met Greg was at the local Farmer’s Market where we purchased two of our most unique plants, our pineapple plant and pencil cactus. After chatting a bit with Greg, we learned that he was responsible for all the beautiful planters you see around the downtown area.
The company began as a dogwood tree nursery in 1991. Early on, I incorporated some landscaping and lawn care into his nursery in order to generate the cash needed to become established in business. Over the years, I started building greenhouses and learned how to grow many different types of plants. Even though it was a struggle, throughout all the hard work, the love for the community and the love for plants kept the business alive. Today, Gregory’s Greenhouse Productions has about 6,000 sq. ft. of greenhouse growing space and an additional 3,000 sq. ft. outdoors and about 80% of the business is wholesale.
Being able to photograph Greg in his environment was an amazing experience that combined two of our favorite elements into one: plants and photography. And we can’t forget about meeting his cute pup, Beemer! We truly had a blast creating portraits of Greg while competing to see who could come up with the most quick-witted comedy. Thank you for an awesome session, Greg, and thanks again for the plants! We would give Gregory’s Greenhouse Productions two green thumbs up!
