If you go to brisbane itself, it's not much to offer for photography. As mentioned, the sandstone building is UQ is quite nice. You can also take some nice pictures on the brisbane river with the "CAT", sunset at Mt Cootha, Southbank on weekends to take kids swimming in the man made beach, friday night market at Eagle street pier.
For more exotic locations, head out to places like Gold coast, sunshine coast etc. A lot depends on what you like to shoot.

There are a lot of old churches in Brisbane city, two Botanical Gardens, one at the foot of Mount Cootha and another next to QUT in the city, Queen Street Mall is a bustle of street activity on late night shopping day on Fridays. There is a Riverside Flea Market on Sunday mornings at the Riverside, as well as at Southbank, and King George Square.
The Gold Coast is an hour's drive away, the Sunshine Coast is two hours away, as are various National Parks in the area, such as Lamington National Park. Get a Lonely Planet guide and you'll not go far wrong.
