About Me

Passion for light, color, movement and shape.
Cinematographer based at Mexico City known for my work in music videos, commercials, short films and documentaries. With a Degree in Communication from the Universidad Iberoamericana with specialization in Cinema, my career started in 1998 as camera assistant and second unit cinematographer on nature documentaries of the Sea of Cortez and Lacandona rain forest for Mexico Desconocido. I have collaborated as Director of Photography in commercials for the courier Mexican company Estafeta, fashion films for InStyle Mexico, in promotional short films for League of Legends, short films and documentaries. My latest work consists on a series of awarded music videos for the classic rock singer and composer Juan Carlos & Black Hat which I was credited for cinematography, direction and production, the documentary feature Voces de Mixquic, and the short film Dulce Alarido.

I have been in the industry since 1998.

Recommendations

I'm happy to recommend JC, I worked with him once, and he was very responsible, creative and reliable.

I'm looking forward to work with him again in the near future.

La Fábrica Films

Juan Carlos was my choice for a series of videos for Food & Wine Magazine. He was fantastic! I would highly recommend him as he produced beautiful cinematography was great to work with.

Juan Carlos Lelo de Larrea was my choice to co-produce, direct, and post-produce a set of music videos for my albums “vol. 2” and “vol. 3” due to his reliability, attention to detail, willingness to understand my project’s needs, and obvious talent behind the camera. He proved himself on all these counts repeatedly throughout the pre-production, production, and post-production period, further displaying capable leadership of his team, commitment, and honesty. The entire experience was superb, and the results speak for themselves - accomplished, artistic videos that exceeded my already high expectations. He stands out in our film industry, and I would recommend him without reservations.

Juan Carlos is an amazing filmmaker with a creative eye and a stylish use of lighting. Would totally recommend him for both commercial and artistic gigs, including corporate videos and music short films.
