David Fenwick

Wildlife, Marine and Botanical Photography

I am a horticulturalist with over 25 years experience of the trade, specialising in the amenity and landscaping sector. Recently I have broadened my horizons over the past five years due to ill health and now also specialise in both website design and wildlife photography as well as horticulture.

Born in Liskeard in 1965 to parents of Lincolnshire decent, I was brought up in the Plymouth and Saltash area, and attended Drake Primary School and Sutton High School for Boys in Plymouth, Devon. Old Suttonian Association

As a teenager I had numerous hobbies and had a keen interest in both natural and local history, participating in pursuits such as metal detecting, bottle hunting, natural history, rocks and mineral collecting, sea fishing and athletics. Just don't ask me to run 800m in under 2 minutes now.

To me horticulture is not a profession but a vocation and I love gardening and working with plants, and I was incredibly fortunate also to be able to attend both Pershore and Cannington Colleges when younger.

I currently live in Heamoor, Penzance, Cornwall, with my partner Carol and our border collie Susie. We both photograph a wide range of subject matter on our travels and place the best photographs on our websites; we both very much enjoy wildlife photography, beachcombing, rockpooling and fishing, when able, and when the tides are right.

I am not currently taking on work, whilst I address a recent dignosis of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, which I have suffered from since 2006, which has recently worsened.
