Down East Magazine 60th Anniversary Issue Cover

This has been such a great summer for us here at Irvin Serrano Photography. One of the things that has made it special is that after seven years of living in Maine, we got our first cover on Down East Magazine. You can see our image on the cover of the 60th Anniversary Issue on newsstands through August.

I shot this image of The Bubbles in Mount Desert Island while touring the park with some close friends of mine visiting from away. In that way it holds a special meaning to me as a reminder of a great time spent with a childhood friend.

In this issue you will also find a piece titled "Making Tracks" about the state of cycling in Maine, written by my talented writer friend Joshua Bodwell. If you have not had a chance to visit Mount Desert Island yet, I encourage you to do so. It is a place you won't easily forget.

Maine Home & Design Magazine Cover Feature

I am so excited to share with you the images from Maine Home & Design Magazine's August cover feature.  We spent two days photographing in Southport, Maine the beautiful work of a great team led by the Knickerbocker Group.

This home was impressive in many ways, the size of the residence, its design, location and the materials used in it were amazing. Above all, what was evident was that the Knickerbocker group and other partners such as Urban Dwellings who collaborated in the Interior design and JC Stone just to name a few, took great pride in their creation. The project showcased superb craftsmanship unrivaled by many of the projects we have visited.

We are very happy with the images we created and hope you like them as much as we do. If you live in Maine, pick up a copy and have a look at the great layout created by MHD's Art Director Heidi Kirn. As always, It was great collaborating with the team at MHD on this feature.

Down East Magazine Drive-in Behind the scenes

Last month we had the pleasure of collaborating with Down East Magazine to create an image for their Best of Maine issue. We teamed up with Down East's visuals Editor Mark Fleming who came to us with the concept for the shoot. Mark is a great photographer in his own right, so it was great to have him on set art directing since he didn't only know what he wanted visually but also understood what it took to achieve it.

I wanted to share a short behind the scenes video of the drive-in shoot. We were hoping to have clear skies but this being Maine, we weren't that lucky. So we had to improvise and make it happen regardless of the weather. At the end of the day, we were happy with the results rain and all.

I also want to thank The Saco Drive-in for allowing us access, Motorland Vintage America for providing the vintage car and our models Emily and Mike for their help. The video was shot by Kevin Sennett. We look forward to collaborating on future projects with Mark and the crew we had that day at the shoot.

Hope you enjoy the image!

Peaks Island Cover

We have had a great summer so far, so much going on. First and foremost, I am so excited to share that I got married in July. On the work front we have been really busy and unable to post as much as we wanted to. So here I will share the June Cover of Maine Home and Design Magazine that we photographed, along with other images from the feature. I have been wanting to share this one for a while.

Keep your eyes open for other posts where we will share other covers we have shot this summer, along with work created for a couple national publications which I cant disclose just yet.
Happy summer to everyone!
