Visual research methods, such as using photography, are gaining acceptance in tourism studies. But there is scope to further extend their application to actively involve children in the research process. When photographs are inserted into a research interview, it is commonly known in the social sciences as photo-elicitation, and auto-driven photoelicitation incorporates photographs that informants have taken themselves (Harper 2002). This research note explores auto-driven photo-elicitation’s application to provide greater insight into children’s tourist behaviour within a family group.
