23-year-olds Brady Kenniston, Craig Vander Galen, John Kraus and Trevor Mahlmann are part of a community of young photographers capturing rockets launched by SpaceX and have all vaulted to popularity thanks to their detailed shots.

They each became photographers through modest means, but all had an interest in the stars. Galien began five years ago by finding a digital camera “in a dusty corner of my garage” where he “started shooting just for the fun of it.” Mahlmann joined a NASA social group and borrowed a camera where he got to watch a commercial launch in Florida that captured his interest in launches. Kenniston and Kraus both began taking pictures while in high school for the yearbook and a little spending cash, respectively, near Florida’s Space Coast, where they lived. After having their photos tagged and acknowledged online by Elon Musk, their careers as photographers have soared.

Check out some of their shots above and head on over to CNBC for full coverage.

In related news, Apple is rumored to release an iPhone with a triple-lens rear camera in 2019.
