Rodrigo Prieto  

Cinematographer, Known for "The Irishman"

Rodrigo Prieto is a Mexican cinematographer. He has been associated as the lead cinematographer for Martin Scorsese and Alejandro González Iñárritu, among other directors.

Prieto is noted for his unconventional use of the camera often combined with strong moody lighting. In 25th Hour, Prieto utilized overexposure and other techniques to create original dream-like images to signify that the events shown on screen are memories or visions. Similarly innovative photography could be spotted in Frida, featuring strong colors and sharp imagery blended with atmospheric yellows and browns, as well as his experimental use of infrared during a battle scene in Alexander. Prieto also is interested in evoking naturalism, most evident in The Homesman and Brokeback Mountain. Prieto not only shot Brokeback Mountain, for which he was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Cinematography, but appeared in a cameo role within the film as a Mexican gigolo whom Jake Gyllenhaal's character, Jack Twist, meets.

Prieto is listed as the cinematographer for Scorsese's The Irishman released in November 2019. In December 2019, Prieto announced that the shooting schedule for Scorsese's 2020 film “Killers of the Flower Moon,” would start as reported by IndieWire stating: "Scorsese’s recurring cinematographer Rodrigo Prieto not only verifies the rumor but also confirms that “Flower Moon” is gearing up to start principal photography in March 2020."
