Rodrigo is a frequent collaborator with Martin Scorsese, Ang Lee, Oliver Stone, and Alejandro González Iñárritu. His first collaboration with Iñárritu, Amores Perros (2000), is widely hailed as the cinematographer’s breakthrough, and spurred Rodrigo’s relocation from Mexico to Los Angeles. This movie, along with their next two projects, 21 Grams and Babel, are regarded as the three films that have led the renaissance of Mexican cinema. Out of all the Iñárritu films he’s worked on, Rodrigo has said that Biutiful is the one of which he’s most proud.
Other notable films Rodrigo has DPed include Passengers, Argo, Martin Scorsese’s The Wolf of Wall Street and the upcoming film Killers of the Flower Moon and Julie Taymor's The Glorias.

Rodrigo is currently in pre-production for his first film as a director, an adaptation of Pedro Peramo by Juan Rulfo, which is considered the most important Mexican novel of the 20th century.
