Dennis McCarthy was born and brought up on the shore of Skaneateles Lake, in Central New York. He visited the Thousand Islands while scuba diving in the 1970's. Since then, he visited the area yearly until he retired with his wife Kathi and permanently moved to Cape Vincent, NY on the St Lawrence River. A graduate of Rochester Institute of Technology with a degree in Electrical Engineer, he worked in product development for large international and small entrepreneurial corporations. One common element in the companies he worked for was industrial design, were he learned to appreciate texture, shape, style, color and form in presenting a product. Today his passion is photographing the Thousand Islands in all seasons. What started as a way to show friends pictures of the River all year, has turned into a 20 year collection of photos that document the beautiful Thousand Islands in all it's seasons.
