Guillermo Navarro was raised in Mexico City, where he attended elementary and high school. He has a sister, Bertha Navarro, who works as a film producer. After graduation from Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico, he studied film in London and Paris. As a very young boy, he started showing interests in photography and began taking photos. Except that, under the influence of his sister, he started working professionally in film. Few years later, he became a freelance photographer. His first important work as a photographer was on a film, which was produced in 1975 by his sister.

In 1991, Guillermo joined the Hollywood film set, when he was appointed as cinematographer on the film “Cabeza De Vaca”. Since then, his career has only gone upwards, and so has his net worth. Two years later, he worked on the film entitled “Hronos”, directed by Guillermo Del Toro, and later the two would work together more frequently. In 1996, Guillermo worked on the film “From Dusk Till Dawn”, directed by Robert Rodriguez, and starred Quentin Tarantino, George Clooney and Juliette Lewis. This increased his net worth considerably, and he soon began to work on other high budget films. The same year he also worked on films “Spawn” and “The Long Kiss Goodnight”, and then Guillermo worked as a director of photography on Quentin Tarantino’s film entitled “Jackie Brown” (1997), and in 1999 he worked on photography for “Stuart Little”. Soon afterwards, in 2000, he became a member of the American Society of Cinematographers (ASC).

In 2001, Guillermo was appointed as director of photography for another Robert Rodriguez film, entitled “Spy Kids”, and the same year he was cinematographer for the films “The Devil’s Back Bone” and “Broken Silence”. During the 2000s, his name eventually became widely known to the film world, when he won the Golden Globe Award for his work on “Pan’s Labyrinth” (2006), which was directed by Guillermo Del Toro, after working on films “Zathura: Space Adventure” (2005), and “Hellboy” (2004). Thanks to his work, in 2007, he was nominated for a Mexican Oscar.

To speak further of his successful career, Guillermo worked on “Hellboy II: The Golden Army in 2008, and on the documentary “It Might Get Loud”, which centers around the electric guitar, and its famous virtuosos Jimmy Page, Jack White and The Edge. In 2011, he was director of photography on the film “I Am Number Four”, and “Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1”, which also added to his net worth.

In recent years, Guillermo has worked on films “Pacific Rim” (2013), “Night at the Museum” (2014), and his latest work, the film “London Fields”, which is scheduled for 2016 release. Guillermo has also tried himself as a director, having success in numerous TV series, such as “Narcos” (2015), “Hannibal” (2013-2015), and “Damien”, which will come out in 2016.

Overall, Navarro has now worked on over 60 films in some capacity, and half-a-dozen TV productions in a full-time career stretching over just 25 years – he is obviously well regarded.

When it comes to Guillermo Navarro’s personal life, little is known about it in the media, except the fact that he has with his wife four children. Currently, they live in Santa Monica, California.
