A self-taught Australian-based photographer is gaining recognition for his incredible, unconventional wedding pictures that professional photographers mistake for photoshop. The first time Peter Adams-Shawn ever snapped an “eyescape” was in 2011. Adams is known for his skill of capturing reflections in a wedding guest’s eye, or an eyescape.
People are in such disbelief that the head International Loupe Awards judge had to apologize to Adams for thinking it was a composite.
Adams offered a photographing tip to Techly, he wrote:
“One other secret – the best frames I’ve captured have had the subject smiling. This relaxes the shot, brings natural creases in the eyes, and even this close, you can tell the subject is smiling.”
He describes his style of photography on his website. Adams wrote:
“I have a very distinct shooting style. I like to making things up as I go along … it keeps things fresh and most importantly creative. I like to try new concepts knowing that they won’t always work, but when they do I think they are well worth it.”
The first “eyescape” Adams captured was in 2011. It was a reflection of a bride doing her hair in the eyes of a young flower girl.

Adams’ photos are 100% real.
The innovative photographer is now experimenting with reflections and bubbles in his next project.
