Helping women tell their stories and bringing awareness to heart disease while using creative portrait photography is a project near and dear to Korey Howell, of Korey Howell Photography.
Go Red for Women
After losing her father to heart disease, Korey was introduced to The Go Red for Women campaign by friend and American Heart Association advocate, Diane Graden. She teamed up with austinwoman Magazine and several Austin area women professionals and created the Go Red for Women Photo campaign to help promote other women in the community interested in supporting this worthy cause. As an established corporate headshot photographer, Korey used her talents and client connections as an opportunity to bring awareness to the number one killer of women in America.
The success of the Go Red for Women photo campaign blossomed into a project with Circle of Red, an ambassador program of women who use their influence to educate their circle of friends using portrait photography for billboards, advertising and marketing materials.
The Survivors Gallery
This year, The Survivors Gallery, sponsored by Covert Auto Group, afforded the American Heart Association the opportunity to expand awareness. This gallery is a pictorial expose’ showing the diversity of age, ethnicity and varied diseases and cures available using photos and stories from brave survivors of heart disease. It made its debut at The Long Center for the Performing Arts, was seen at The Texas State Capitol and will be featured all over Austin, TX in the coming year.
As a women’s advocate, Korey is excited to not only help empower women in the community but, she is also thrilled that her talents can be used to help add to the quality of health for women everywhere.
