I’ve been shooting these gates in front of the Bushwick Inlet over the past few years. Here are a few shots over the changing seasons.

Regular readers of Greenpointers have seen Spot Dogs NYC a few weeks back, but let it be known I’m an equal opportunity photographer. This particular post features the cats we see on the streets of Greenpoint.
Thank everyone who came to the opening reception for my photography show at Brouwerij Lane, which will be up until April 22. All of the photos in the show were shot in Greenpoint, on black and white film with compact cameras in the later half of 2010.

The majority of these photographs are from the last roll of HP5 I shot over the past two weeks. Here I present a collection of signs that caught my eye.

Happy Friday. Here are a few of my street portraits focusing on some of the men who have lived in Greenpoint for a good while.

Photographs of the Greenpoint water tower by Will Star. See if you can spot any spooky imagery in this first picture, and tell me I’m not crazy.
Spotdogsnyc.com is a “pet project” I’ve kept for the past 4 years or so.
Here is the premise:
- Spot a dog on the street
- Take a photo
I think I started it before I was comfortable approaching people for photos of themselves. Anyways, here are a few from the hood:
I’ll probably be making a spot dogs post here once every few weeks, but if you want to see more, follow the tumblr blog here: http://www.spotdogsnyc.com.
Also, if you’re interested in having your portrait taken with your dog (or without), contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Hello Greenpoint. I’m Will Star, local photographer, and one of the newest contributor to The Greenpointers. I’ll be posting photography from the neighborhood regularly and building out some projects I’ve been working on for the past few years. You can expect posed and candid street portraits regularly, interview projects, and snippets of Greenpoint life through my lens. I like to use a variety of cameras and formats, shooting mostly film, but you might catch the occasional digital photo snuck in here too (not that there’s anything wrong with that).
This set of images feature the dudes who work at Brouwerij Lane (pronounced: Brow-er-ee Lane). They all really know their stuff about the different types of beer they carry and can help you identify what you’re into.
Now, I like shooting here for three main reasons:
- The window light is fantastic.
- The people are cool (staff & patrons).
- They have beer.
And lastly, I have a photo of our fearless leader, Jen G, from the first day I met her. One of my favorite portraits from this spot. (note: she does not work at Brouwerij Lane)
I hope you enjoy the photographs, and I look forward to contributing on a weekly basis.
