The past month I’ve been doing quite a bit of shooting as house photographer for the Bavarian Bier Café in both Brisbane on Eagle Street Pier and on the Gold Coast at Broadbeach. It’s been great meeting and mingling with a fun bunch of staff and patrons. Below are a handful of photographs from both venues, I’ll be shooting again at Eagle Street Pier this Thursday night so if you’re around town be sure to drop in for a beer… Prost!

A Sunday funday with my nephew Sammy & Benny down at the local skatepark. So stoked to see the little guy trying to be just like his dad… sessioning skateparks is in his genes!
Nestled between modern high rise apartments and businesses of the CBD, hidden behind the facades of some of the last original remaining remnants of a bygone Brisbane, would you believe lies a private service station complete with old rusty jerry cans and a fully funtional fuel bowser. I imagine Rock’N'Roll George pulling in for an oil change and top up before cruising the streets of Brisbane in his ’52 FX Holden back in the day.
Each side of the retro fuel pump is leased by two separate car rental companies and is used daily for convenient, mind you ‘premium priced’ refuelling of its inner city fleets.
I originally visited the site over ten years ago then with my trusty old film slr, though since have never returned thinking it would have most definitely met its demise like so much of the other CBD’s early heritage structures. Recently strolling casually past the roller door with my camera, I was able to slip on in to capture a few frames with the kind aid of an employee with a key.
Here’s to the inner city servo and lets hope it stands to see another 10 years!
