Stage 3 Patron

per month
- Download high-resolution copies of my images: Display photos of mine on your desktop or mobile device! Select photos are available to download for personal use via my SmugMug website. Images from my past few months of media coverage of launches are available to download at roughly 3000px in this rotating catalog. A portion of photos created directly for clients are unavailable to download, but I can point you to where those images are publicly-accessible.

Shortly after you sign up for this tier, I manually enable your access to the SmugMug gallery. You will receive an email invitation to quickly make a SmugMug guest account and access the gallery. I do this manually, so it may take up to a day or so for me to complete this process.

About John Kraus

Who I am + What I do
I'm John Kraus, spaceflight photographer based near Cape Canaveral, Florida. I've worked for the past seven years to combine my love of spaceflight and photography into a full-time profession, having covered over 150 launches from the Space Coast and other launch sites around the world. Patreon is a large enabler of this endeavor.

As my career has evolved and my involvement in other projects has grown, I'm less active on Patreon today than I've been in the past, but I still appreciate and welcome all support from my patrons. Whether you're a patron or just here here stopping by, I appreciate your support!
