Hello, I’m Rebecca Toh.


I am a photographer who works around the world shooting for clients such as Facebook, Monocle, Condé Nast Traveler, The New York Times, etc.

I also love to write.

This website collects my thoughts about everything I have learned over the last decade about creative success and my personal exploration of what it takes to live a good and happy life.
