The Barnsley Chronicle is currently in consultation with its two photographers over possible redundancy.
The newspaper says it would hope to retain the pair’s services on a freelance basis should the proposal go through.
The Chronicle says it is receiving more submitted pictures from readers, with reporters also taking photographs to accompany stories.
Editor Andrew Harrod, pictured above left, said: “We are in the process of consulting with our two photographers about the viability of their department.
“Such consultation may result in their redundancy – although we still see a valuable role in our products for experienced press photographers.
“If redundancy is the only option, we would hope to retain their services in a freelance capacity.
“Like most newspapers, we are receiving more submitted pictures and, for some time, our reporters have been making use of tablets, smart phones and cameras to submit their own photos with their stories.”
