George Pimentel

Born and raised in Toronto.

George Pimentel’s studio, 1661 Dundas St. West, Toronto

On the weekend I was in Los Angeles at the Golden Globes and I see the Kardashians, Lady Gaga, Mel Gibson, Leonardo DiCaprio, I see them all. And then I come back. This who I am. I feel very comfortable in my own skin down here. This is my Rabo de Peixe. This is my little village – George Pimentel.

George Pimentel is one of Canada’s most recognized celebrity photographers, whose work has been published in every major entertainment magazine in North America. A third generation photographer, George’s father, José, opened one of the first photo studios serving the Portuguese community in Toronto after immigrating from São Miguel, Azores, in 1963. George combines his passion for celebrity photography with his dedication to continuing the family tradition of serving his local working class community in Dundas West.
