Biker dude turned photographer Ryan Paevey (Nathan, GENERAL HOSPITAL) loves hitting the road for an adventure and capturing the amazing views he finds. “I just take pictures of everything,” says the Renaissance man, who sells his photos and more via FortunateWanderer.com. “I’m self-taught. I'm a dive in and do it kind of guy. I just start doing stuff — often without instructions.”

When it comes to photography, however, he does take tips from his college pal Arthur Shchiglik. “We don’t go anywhere without our cameras — I always have mine hanging from my Damn Fine Goods strap — so it always turns into shooting pictures and swapping techniques,” says Paevey, who shares some of their photos in the new issue of Soaps In Depth, on stands now.
“Art’s taught me a fair bit about the hardware and how to use it and I’ve stumbled on a few techniques I was able to teach him,” he confides. “He’s become a great collaborator. ”
Paevey also has fun when he's working at GH, too, as you can clearly see in the special backstage photos below!
