Photos on a phone belonging to the younger brother of NRL star Daly Cherry-Evans led to him being charged for trespassing and climbing Brisbane CBD buildings, his lawyer says.

Darcy Troy Cherry-Evans, 20, was expected to enter a plea in the Brisbane Magistrates Court on Wednesday, but the case was adjourned after he engaged lawyer Adam Magill.

Mr Magill said the matter would be negotiated and had it adjourned to September 14.

Outside court, Mr Magill said the charges stemmed from photos on his client's phone.

"He was taking photos from high areas ... it appears from the angles it's from high-risk activity areas," he said.

Mr Magill said he would be speaking to the prosecutor's office as some charges seem to double up.

"A lot of them (charges) in my opinion are duplicitous," he said.

Cherry-Evans is facing four counts of unregulated high-risk activities and six of trespass.

The charges relate to allegations he unlawfully entered and climbed four city buildings in Charlotte, George, Turbot and Eagle streets between March and May this year.

He's also accused of twice trespassing at a railway station in Spring Hill.
