Jowdy Photography Clicks
as APA Special Friend
For 11 years, this company has captured the happenings of the APA's Annual Congress, Fall Forum, and more. Now, Jowdy Photography is on the other side of the camera lens as the recipient of the APA's Special Friend Award.
A surprised Jeremy Plemel had to step away from his duties photographing this year's Congress award ceremony to accept the award on Jowdy's behalf.
The company first worked with the APA at the 24th Annual Congress and has been a strong supporter ever since, capturing more than 25,000 images at Congress events alone.
"We enjoy a great relationship with the American Payroll Association and its members, and we are thrilled to accept this Special Friend Award," Founder and President Jeff Jowdy said. "We are honored and humbled that the APA would honor us in this way. We have worked for many associations over the years, and this is the first time anyone has done this for us."
Jowdy started the company in June 1987 out of an apartment in San Antonio and keeps its headquarters in San Antonio today, with other offices in Dallas, New York, and San Francisco.
The company now has some 133 employees and, in addition to the APA, counts the Dallas Cowboys, Southwest Airlines, New York Life, Deloitte, Toastmasters, and the New York Yankees among its clients.
