President George W Bush has begun his three day state visit to the UK and we're keen to see your pictures.

You can submit single images or a series of pictures that tell a story, a photo essay, as well as video but remember we do need some text to accompany the pictures.

So if you think you have a photograph or video worth looking at, if you found yourself in the right place at the right time,
send it to BBC News Online.

If you want to e-mail it to us, send it to yourpics@bbc.co.uk .

Why not add the above email address to your mobile phone and email address book.

If you want to send your picture from your mobile phone, dial 07970 885089. You can send them from any network or phone. Please send the large full size images (usually 640x480 pixels) taken by the mobiles otherwise they are too small to publish.

Don't forget to include your name and some background information as to what the image is about and why you took the picture as this will increase your chances of selection. If you want more information please contact our Picture Editor at the above email address.

Guide to shooting a Photo Essay

Photos:
Ideally you should aim to take a variety of photographs - it's a good idea to plan the story before you start. A good first photo would be one that introduces the subject to the readers.

Makes sure you take some close-up photos as well as some wider pictures to show the subject's environment but remember to include something in the foreground to add impact.

When you take the picture, remember to look up or down to see what's around you. You might get a better shot if you kneel, or find a position to look down from.

The completed photo essay will have no more than 10 photographs, but you can send us more to choose from.

Make sure you have permission from anyone pictured before submitting the photographs.

Words:
Each picture will need a caption.

Who, what, why, where and when is a good place to start when gathering information for the caption, but where possible quotes from those pictured and a description of how you are feeling will help bring the essay to life.

We don't need many words - no more than 80 per picture.
