Annika Howe
Executive Producer/Owner @HoweHaus

Executive Producer & owner of HoweHaus Inc. Annika Howe helps photographers bring their creative projects to life. She especially values international projects with a positive social impact. Projects for Nike, Adidas, Leading Hotels of the World, Visa & BMW have taken her across the world and back. She’s known for her warmth, cultural savviness & resourcefulness. Initially honing her diplomacy by working in the German Parliament and her resourcefulness as a freelance tv journalist throughout Europe, Annika then moved Stateside, working for a commercial film production company. Those years working in film production organically led to producing photo & video shoots as well as a geographic move to New York City. Giving back to the community & fostering the next generation is of great importance and she can often be found moderating panels, hosting talks & facilitating workshops to support the international media industry & female entrepreneurs. she founded TheProducer.com
