Dávila founded and directed as a CEO and Art Director two advertising agencies for almost 7 years. While doing that, he studied a Master degree in Neuro-ligüistic Programming. In late 2012, just before moving to Madrid, he shot down his agencies and decided to refocus his career. In Spain, he studied a Master degree in Strategy & Innovation at the Istituto Europeo di Design and later on a Master degree in Fashion Photography.

The Impression, Rolling Stone, Forbes, Vein Magazine, The British Journal of Photography, Nylon Magazine, Grazia, Nakid Magazine, NEO2, ICON among other important media names, magazines and brands have chosen Lucho Dávila experience, trusting his deep passion for image making.
This expertise has got him invited to give lectures and workshops in several universities in Ecuador. He has been invited to Cuba to give a lecture at FORMA Design event, asked to be a juror for CLAP Iberoamerican Awards on Advertising Artworks, among other collaborations.

Davila’s understanding of the brand and advertising background allows him to completely communicate the client’s vision into a set of images or moving images. At the moment he’s fully compromised with fashion image making, commercial and editorial.
He also collaborates with Spain based NGO Terrachidia, where he voluntarily works as Art Director of media and graphic content to support NGO’s work through visual communication at the M’hamid Oasis on the Sahara Desert.
