Peter Sibbald began freelancing for the Kingston Whig Standard in 1983 and three years later launched his magazine career covering the Boston Marathon for TIME. Since then, he has worked steadily on assignments in North America and Asia for many of the top US and Canadian magazines.

In this era when traditional publishers are being gobbled up by internet, television and telecommunications mega-corporations, he remains an outspoken advocate for photographer’s rights, their fair and reasonable compensation, and their retention of copyright. He has been an active contributor to the group Editorial Photographers since the spring of 1999. He is also a member of CAPIC (Canadian Association of Photographers and Illustrators in Communication), the Society of Environmental Journalists (SEJ), the Canadian Journalists for Free Expression (formerly the Canadian Committee to Protect Journalists) and a letter writer for its affiliate the International Freedom of Expression eXchange Clearing House (IFEX).

Peter and his family are based in a rural community just north of Toronto.
