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.

When I was 20 – that was 2006 – I quit university to find my own way in the world.

In the years since, I have tried and failed at many things – at one point I was a cafe-owner, a late-night radio DJ, an indie magazine publisher, a newspaper columnist, an aspiring freelance writer. All sorts of different things.

In 2013, things finally took off for me when I decided to become a freelance photographer. Since then I have been able to live and travel purely on my income from photography.

Life is short. It can end tomorrow for all we know. Knowing this acutely is the reason why I strive always to live the life I want to live.

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, happy, meaningful life.

Through my writing, I hope to give freely and spread a little more positivity, joy and courage in this world.

If my writing manages to help just one person move in a better direction in life, I believe this blog has done its job.



Other things about me

I am an aspiring minimalist.

I love freedom. And solitude.

I believe strongly in the power and importance of authenticity and honesty.

I enjoy thinking about how to think.

My favorite things in the world are books and bookstores. (I’m sort of a nerd.)

I love learning new things, breaking old rules, and seeing things from a different point of view.

This is what I’m doing now.

Currently living in Singapore.

I am on Instagram and Twitter sometimes.
