About Bold Coast Photography

As residents of beautiful Bar Harbor, Maine, we are blessed to have Acadia National Park as our backyard. As photographers, we love capturing the wonder of our natural surroundings. The ruggedness of the people and places of Downeast Maine. The ever-changing beauty of the sea and sky. Life as majestic as a soaring bald eagle and as fragile as the lichen clinging to the bold granite of our coastlines. From antique barns to oceanfront mansions and hushed lakes to cascading waterfalls, we seek to capture the feel of daily life in our island home.

Our creative vision begins with the person behind the lens at the moment the image is captured and is fully expressed in the emotion you, the viewer, experience as you contemplate our work.

At Bold Coast Photography, we believe Fine Art Photography should be affordable to everyone – which is why we have created both prints and note cards using archival quality fine art papers and inks.

To ensure long-lasting quality, we maintain a strategic partnership with a Fine Art Printing and Design Studio located right here in Bar Harbor, enabling us to produce our prints and note cards on Epson state-of-the-art professional wide-format printers using museum quality archival pigment inks and papers. Ours is the only Fine Art Print Studio in the entire Downeast Maine region.

2016 marks the 100th anniversary of both the National Park Service and Acadia National Park.  Bold Coast Photography is proud to announce that it has been selected as an Acadia Centennial Partner and will be part of the year-long, Maine-wide celebration highlighting the previous hundred years of world-class conservation at the park and inspiring and launching the next hundred years of stewardship of Acadia. As an Acadia Centennial Partner, Bold Coast Photography will donate a percentage of your print or notecard purchase to Friends of Acadia to help preserve the Acadia National Park experience for future generations.

Tim Rooney


After a career spent in the Information Technology field as a Professional and Certified Project Manager (PMP), Tim fulfilled a long-held dream to take an early retirement and relocate to Mount Desert Island. He is now a year-round resident of Bar Harbor pursuing his passion for photography and the great outdoors. As a teen, Tim purchased his first “real” camera — a Minolta SRT-101 35mm film camera — and began shooting mostly black and white film that he developed in his basement darkroom. As the years went by, photography took a back seat to career and family. Retirement provided the opportunity to jump into the world of digital photography head first, rekindling his passion. He has never looked back. Tim can usually be found roaming the coastline of Acadia National Park or hiking its many trails or exploring other fascinating sites in Downeast Maine, always with camera in tow to capture the lasting images found here on the Bold Coast Photography site.
