What is a headshot?
It’s a hint at your identity. It’s an expression of who you are, how approachable (or unapproachable) you are, and prepares people to meet you.
It shouldn’t be 2 or 5 or 10 years old because people are likely to be shocked when they actually meet you.
So why not have the best headshot you can get?

About Your Headshot Photos
Our Headshot Photography Process
Everything begins with a consultation. We'll talk about your audience, why you're choosing to do this now, what impression you want to create, and the persona you want to project.
Your headshot session is designed to deliver the best results based on your goals. We guide you on choices of wardrobe, makeup, and hair.
After your session, I'll custom-edit your images, providing you with professional photos for your use.
Headshots are always delivered electronically in a form suitable for web and print, based on the package you choose.
A wonderful eye for artistry, a great atmosphere. His photos are an absolute treasure. Time in the studio is fun and relaxed whilst getting the best of professional quality. Highly recommended. – Karissa
We guarantee that you will be satisfied. If you are not, for any reason, we will refund your session fee and replace your art.

Frequently Asked Questions
We recommend solid colors, usually darker or neutral. Bright colors – particularly white and yellow – draw the eye away from you. Patterns can also be distracting and will be eliminated during painting if you choose that option. The style – formal, casual, dressy, costume – depends on what you want to get from this.
HThis will be covered in our consultation. We strive for everything – wardrobe, shoes, accessories, jewelry, and hair and makeup styles – to be in harmony. There are no hard and fast rules for this.
We work with some of the best HMUAs (Hair and Makeup Artists) in the Austin area. If you choose to have us arrange that for you we pass through the charges directly from the artist to you. We do recommend tipping as well.

Directions to the Studio
Take Burnet Road to Polaris Avenue. Polaris Avenue is only on the east side of Burnet Road and is the first left south of Research Blvd/183. It is across the street from U-Haul and there’s a sign for Buddy’s Place on the corner of Burnet & Polaris.
Turn onto Polaris and drive past the island in the middle of the street. Take an immediate left into the complex and you will be facing Building D. Take an immediate left and an immediate right and you will be in the parking area between Buildings C & D and looking straight at Building B. Park anywhere in this lot. Walk to the walkway in front of Building B and turn right. The studio is the last door on the left and the signs above the door and on the window say Doc List Photography.
If the lot between buildings C & D is full go around Building D to the lot between Buildings D & E (you’ll see the roll-up garage doors on the backs of the businesses in Building D). Go to the walkway on your left between Buildings D & B. The studio is the first door on your right.
