Biography

One of Mexico's top cinematographers, Guillermo Navarro was destined from a young age to work in film. An avid photography enthusiast since his early teenage years, he began working professionally while still extremely young. His sister was a film producer, so he worked as a still photographer on various sets. This piqued his interest in cinematography. He got his start in Europe, but Hollywood soon beckoned via fellow Mexican filmmaker Guillermo del Toro. The two began a long and fruitful collaboration with the 1993 horror feature "Cronos." As del Toro's star rose, so did Navarro's, and the cinematographer was soon working on popular movies of the 1990s and the following decade, such as Quentin Tarantino's Elmore Leonard adaptation "Jackie Brown" (1997) and the family comedy "Night at the Museum" (2006). Throughout this time, Navarro continued working with del Toro. The cinematographer helped bring to life the director's hit films "Hellboy" (2004), a comic book adaptation about a genetically engineered demon who fights bad guys, and 2006's "Pan's Labyrinth," a dark supernatural thriller set in civil war-era Spain (for which Navarro won an Oscar). He has also shifted genres, lensing the 2008 rock and roll documentary "It Might Get Loud."
