About Passports to Life

Hi There! I'm stoked to have you here! I'm Peter Rickloff and I am a Travel & Lifestyle Photographer. If I had to narrow down what I'm passionate about, my top two would be travel and photography. My parents instilled in me from a young age the importance of travel and experiencing different places and cultures. I have been fortunate enough to visit more than 50 states and over 40 states in my short 29 years on Earth. I believe that travel changes people for the better, and I hope my stories inspire you to see more of this beautiful planet.
