Hi, I’m Sibu and I am a Chicago based professional photographer.

I began my journey in photography ever since my first SLR in 1998. Being an avid birdwatcher, nature & landscape photography was what got me started. And for the last few years, I’ve been professionally taking Weddings, Portraits and Dance & Theatre performances. For me, the camera is a sketch book, an instrument of incredible intuition and soulful spontaneity! I specialize in custom portraiture with great attention to detail and uses both natural and studio light to deliver a perfect picture.

My style of photography is best described as eclectic & fun, much like telling a story (photojournalistic), where I capture memorable moments for the purpose of documenting, cherishing and sharing. I am a Canon Professional Services Gold Member and I  shoot exclusively with Canon Professional grade equipment.

I draw a lot of inspiration from my extremely creative wife Sapna Sibu, and our two utterly loving and creative kids, Isha and Emil.

Performing Arts

Performing Arts Photography is highly challenging due to the fast moving artists, dynamic stage lighting, synchronized choreography, capturing the perfect pose at the right moment and above all, capturing the unique expressions.
