Get ready to give up your amateur photography hobby.

Canada's Chris Hadfield, International Space Station commander and coolest man in the galaxy, schools Instagramers from 400 kilometres above the Earth in a new YouTube video that has already scored more than 150,000 views since it was uploaded on April 22.

While Hadfield does have a scenic advantage (i.e. overlooking the Sahara), we can’t forget that the man is shooting these wicked photos while in space.

He ends the clip with some space photography wisdom which can be used down on Earth as well.

"The beauty of the Space Station though, is if [the shot] is not here this time, tomorrow it might be, or maybe next week, or maybe a month from now," he says.

"There’s not a race to get the picture. You can be patient. Like a hunter."
