READERS are being given the chance to show off their photography skills by joining the new Hampshire Chronicle Camera Club.

The club, launched on Thursday last week, is to give local photographers the chance to have their images published and potentially seen by tens of thousands of people online and in print.

These images are a selection posted in the first week of the club.

You can join our dedicated Facebook group where members can share their best snaps and tips, get feedback and ask for advice.

You can send us scenic pictures, weather shots or wildlife images - even snaps of your pets - all we ask is that they are specific to our circulation area.

We will run regular spreads of members’ work in the paper, with full credits in the captions.

All we ask is that you provide a brief description of the picture, plus where and when it was taken.

There will even be special prizes for pictures from events taking place across the Winchester district.

To join the club, search for ‘Hampshire Chronicle Camera Club’ on Facebook.
