About The Artist:

Bengy Toda held his first very own camera, a Kodak Brownie, and started to photograph his surroundings at age seven. Since then, his fascination with photography has never waned.

Toda is a man of many interests and accomplishments such as: being polo player in Manila, England, Spain, the U.S. and Argentina; fishing in local locations and at exciting fishing destinations such as the Great Barrier Reef, Hawaii and Mexico; motorcycling across the nation as well as in Morocco, New Zealand, and Tasmania; car and boat racing in Florida, skiing in Colorado, game hunting in Africa; and even at one point hang gliding in Italy and in the Philippines.

Throughout all this, photography has always been a constant in his life. His passion for photography goes beyond taking pictures as evidenced by Studio 58 Lab 10, his business that produces the many outputs of photography such as printing for exhibits, billboards, marketing displays, among others. An avid outdoorsman and environmentalist, Toda shares many unseen landscapes in the country from way up north to down south in Chasing Mountains. The images transport the viewer to these rarely trodden localities in order to share their beauty.
