Secrets of a society photographer: George Pimentel shares his favourite shots

Secrets of a society photographer: George Pimentel shares his favourite shots
I’ll admit that I am incredibly intimidated by Lord Black. This was taken at the Maclean’s magazine 100th anniversary party in 2005. They didn’t do the red carpet, and we weren’t allowed to shoot inside. But when I saw them, I knew I had to go for it. I was scared, but I just walked up and asked for the shot. I think it was the next day that Black was charged, and this shot ran in papers all over the world. It was a huge exclusive.


Galen Weston Jr.’s Bieber haircut, a commando mission to shoot Conrad Black, and the never-ending battle for fashion supremacy—George Pimentel has seen, done and documented it all. Tonight, the celebrity photographer shares 300 of his favourite Toronto society snaps at a VIP-filled bash at the Carlu. In case you didn’t get an invite, here’s a sneak peek at some of Pimentel’s most memorable shots.
