Hello, and thanks for checking out my website! My name is John Kraus; I’m a 17 year old photographer from Satellite Beach, Florida. I’m a senior at Satellite High School, a violinist in my school’s symphonic orchestra and a member of my school’s journalism program. I’m a huge Orlando Magic and NBA fan too!

I work as a photojournalist under AmericaSpace, a space news website covering American spaceflight. Under AmericaSpace, I cover most launches from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station (CCAFS). Along with other members of the media, I set up cameras at the launchpads prior to the launch of whatever rocket calls that launchpad home, and I retrieve them post-launch.

Sometimes I shoot launches off-site to take advantage of the beautiful scenery the Space Coast has to offer.
