This article provides a review of photo-based landscape perception research approaches that can be used for assessment of tourists' visual landscape perceptions. The paper contributes to academic research by presenting and reviewing photo-based methods previously used in landscape perception and preference enquiries, in relation to their aptness in on-site tourism studies. The paper is concerned particularly with approaches relevant to advancing theory, allowing respondents to make their own classifications rather than relying only on constructs provided by the researchers. The focus here is on the fieldwork and its preparations, not on techniques for analysing the data collected.
