Cinematographer based at Mexico City known for my work in music videos, commercials, fashion videos and documentaries. My career started in 1998 as camera assistant and second unit cinematographer on nature documentaries of the Sea of Cortez and Lacandona rain forest. I have collaborated as a Director of Photography in commercials for the courier Mexican company Estafeta, fashion films for ELLE and InStyle Mexico and in promotional short films for League of Legends. 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.
I have been in the industry since 2000.

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, of "Juan Carlos & Black Hat"
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.
