Bars and their tenders

The October issue of Time Out Sydney is a bit of a teaser for the Bar Awards and Bar Guide which are held and released next week.

It meant some bar hopping for me as i snapped bartenders who are up for awards.

First up was cover stars Anton and Jason from Shady Pines. I set up a paper roll in the bar for the cover.

After the cover, all the Shady Pines bar staff assembled for a group shot which nicely ran over a double page spread.

The week of these shoots i’d bought a new Octobox from B&H which proved useful for these run and gun bartender portraits. I’d just turn up, pop my Canon 580ex flash inside the Octobox and snap a few frames of the bartenders. Easy as, fast and portable.

Mooo! Shady Pines Saloon

The Bar Awards party where all the winners will be announced is happening next Monday night at The Standard. If cocktails, barbecue, paella, and canoodling with bar types is your thing then you can buy tickets here.
