José Pimentel

José immigrated to Canada and, along with his two brother-in-laws, opened a studio called Custodio at College St. and Augusta Ave. in Toronto. After many successful years, the team separated to open their own studios. He chose to set up across St. Helen's Church, because he knew that being near a church was an ideal location for life-changing events that would require a photographer.

The studio was run by the family which consisted of José, his wife Maria, and their four children. José is now retired, and his youngest son George, has taken over the family business.
