David Henshaw

David's Portfolio

For more than 15 years David, along with his wife Debi, ran a design and production agency in the UK, retiring to the Spanish island of Menorca in 2006. David has been diving for around 12 years and has always been interested in underwater photography but only for personal pleasure - they were too bad to show anyone else!

In the last 4 years and having spoken with a few professional photographers he was persuaded to take photography seriously and now carries a camera on every dive and has had some success over the last 2 years in international competitions and has also produced several articles for dive magazines. David was appointed as a moderator for the FINS Magazine Group and official magazine contributor to EzDive - the worlds first bi-language (English/Chines) dive magazine.
