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 with AmericaSpace, a space news website covering American spaceflight. I am credentialed under AmericaSpace to cover most launches from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station (CCAFS) as a media member. 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. I also shoot from a few miles away during each launch, and retrieve the camera(s) I set up at the pad after that.
