Fresh out of grad school, I landed my first job at an advertising and marketing agency in Palo Alto. It’s one of the best experiences I’ve ever had.
Agency life leaves a mark. It changes the way you think, the way you plan and execute, and the way you interact with people.
A few weeks ago, I photographed team members at Traction, an SF-based marketing agency and consultancy. It was like going home again. I loved every aspect of it: the vitality, the banter, and the ideas born of minds in flight. It just felt so familiar.
Nostalgia aside, below are some black and white headshots we captured. I hope you like them.
When you have a second, visit Traction at www.tractionco.com. You may experience a homecoming, too.

It was dramatic and perhaps a little too moody. After all, Dr. Prasad is a smiler. Truly. Here’s a fuller collection where you can see him under the influence of color.
