James Whiting is a man of many talents. Photography, journalism, skating and running; there’s a lot that keeps him busy. As a photographer he’s worked extensively in his hometown of Melbourne, documenting the day-to-day with a keen eye that knows how to look a little deeper.
Recently, this work has taken him internationally to projects in L.A, travelling there on four separate occasions in 2017.
We caught up with James to hear his thoughts on travelling as a creative, how that influences what he looks for and where it’s taken him.

We’ve tapped into our Insiders around the world, talked to you, our customers, looked at the latest industry news and insights to predict these five travel trends for 2018.
1. A new kind of family travel 一种新型家庭旅游
Back are the days of National Lampoons style vacations. Modern family dynamics will innovate and reinvent family travel. Multi-generational holidays are making a comeback – Millennials are sucking it up and going on cute vacays with the families more often. This will continue to evolve this year. Often overlooked, Gen Xers might not be the largest market out there, but they are the generation with the most money and time to spend on travel.
过去都是在国定假期才会旅行。现代家庭加入了创新并重塑了家庭旅行。多代人假期正在卷土重来 – 千禧一代正在吮吸它，并与家人更频繁地度过温馨的假期。今年将继续发展。无名一代（出生于1970年代的美国人，Gen X），可能不是最大的市场，但他们是最有钱和最有时间旅行的一代。
