Actor Headshots | Judy Winnick Portrays Miep Gies

I recently had the opportunity to do an actor headshot for actress Judy Winnick for her newest role portraying Miep Gies. Unlike a regular actor’s headshot that presents a natural representation of the actor, character headshots are created to show the actor or actress in the portrayal of a general character type, or as in Judy’s case, the portrayal of a specific character.

In addition to costume and makeup, character headshots like this may include additional props that help tell the character’s story. For Judy’s shoot she brought in a small desk, diary and a photograph of Anne Frank we used to help tell the story of Miep Gies reflecting back on these historical events.

The story of Miep Gies is one of incredible heroism. She not only helped hide and care for Anne Frank and her family during WWII, she is the one that saved and protected Ann Frank’s diary from being lost to the world.

Along with the actual headshot, I worked with Judy to create a poster, flyer and cards for her, and venues where she performs, to be used for promoting her performances. Here’s the promotional flyer and cards we created.

Having seen her performance of the story of Irena Sendler, I can personally tell you Judy is an incredible actress. Her shows are both entertaining and educational. She does some performances locally here in Denver so if you get a chance, any one of her shows will be something you don’t want to miss!

Denver actress Judy Winnick is on the Colorado Humanities Chautauqua Speakers Bureau and has performed internationally. During her teaching career she received on of Colorado’s Distinguished Teacher Awards.

I unreservedly recommend David, for both the quality of his work and the ease of the process. I came to his studio believing that a flattering photograph was unachievable, he put me at ease and quickly proved me wrong.

I had an amazing experience with David! He gave me such amazing photos, and his editing is spot on.
