Pictels Photography by Terry Buckman

My first jobs were as a motor/motor cycle mechanic working on BMWs and Velocettes. Eventually reached the dizzy heights as a police vehicle mechanic at Hampton Garage. Moved into computing for about 6 years at what was then English Electric Leo Computers. Spent 9 years in local government project management. Then went back into computing with companies including ABS Computers (Portslade), UIS Ltd (Epsom), Capscan Ltd and Gultronics. Finished up selling services for Royal Mail (or Consignia)

Settled in Chessington for about 28 years until moving to Wick near Littlehampton (via Tadworth) in 2002. In January 2008 moved to Southwater near Horsham and then in July 2014 we moved to Storrington.

Followed Wimbledon FC from January 1977 and now supporting AFC Wimbledon.

Having rediscovered non-league football I now also enjoy the Surrey and Sussex football scene

In 2007-8 I collaborated with David Bauckham (Nomad) to produce the book 'A Season of Sussex Soccer'

In 2012 proud to have contributed to This is Our Time - Niall Coupers superb book on the history of AFC Wimbledon

Kit and Software

I currently use Canon EOS 750D, Fuji Finepix HS20EXR, Canon 18-55 IS II, Tamron 16-300 Di II VC,  580EX Speedlight and remote triggers. I also have  the superb Fuji FinePix 770 EXR compact.

The Photos

While most of my recent photography experience is football related, I also enjoy photographing bands, birds of prey, pets and other creatures.

High resolution images can be made available for publication, by arrangement, copyright stays with me.


I am happy for a few low resolution copies to be used on club websites, Facebook etc, I only need an email request.

I know what I want to be if I grow up

Born September 1940, hobbies football, motor sport and photography. Married Pam in 1968, 3 children supposedly grown up, 3 lovely granddaughters and a grandson and from April 2020 a great grandson.
I lived in Hampton, Middlesex for many years. Went to Hampton Grammar School but couldn't really justify doing homework while The Goon Show was on. Most of my spare time was spent watching motor-cycle racing or going to local jazz clubs e.g. Eel Pie Island and Thames Hotel.
