Today we’d like to introduce you to Lenny & Lucky Conner. Luckyvirgo is a Los Angeles-based brother duo team. consisting of a photographer (Lenny) , and creative director (Lucky).
Gentlemen, please start us off – tell us some of your story.
Our mother purchased a camera for Lenny when he was 15 years old. Her goal was for Lenny to explore his surroundings, and become more active as I entered high school. From there his younger brother Lucky became his first subject to shoot. Lucky eventually became his muse for all creativity. By combining our talents we have built a family based business that we are very proud of, and with over 20 years experience we’ve specialized in using that creativity. By producing images in editorial, events, fashion, head shots , and some iconic images. Luckyvirgo Photography “your creative & artistic source”
Has it been a smooth road?
There are obstacles on any journey to success. we have experienced financial situations in regards to updating new equipment as new technology changes.
Has there been people or an institution that has played a pivotal role in your career?
Our mother Paula has played a huge part of who we are as photographer/creative directors because she instilled in us at an early age the creative side she had learned in school by teaching us arts and crafts, fashion, music, current events, etc even though she worked two jobs sometimes 3 jobs as a single parent she made sure time with us was well spent which factored an outstanding bond between the three of us. my brother and I were latchkey kid, our mother insisted that we explore a different side of our personalities in creativity instead of being in the streets where we may have possibly been involved in gangs etc.
The second person who has been instrumental in our creativity is a personal friend of ours who believed in our photography from the day he was introduced to it. Director Anthony Hemingway has been a wonderful mentor and has always taught us to strive for success through what we produce. He’s been a great influence and inspiring. Our ultimate goal is to one day own our own studio in the Los Angeles area, and follow in the footsteps of legendary photographers Herb Ritts!, and especially David LaChapelle!.
What kind of work do you look forward to most?
Our favorite type of project would involve anything dramatic and creative with the use of oversized props, all types of models, a great location. with a touch of David LaChapelle with an overall look of Luckyvirgo.
If you had to go back in time and start over, would you have done anything differently?
Stayed and completed college from A to Z. Sometimes in life, we are sidetracked and are to take care of our responsibilities. I believe all in life happens for a reason.
