My name is Zach, but most people know me as ©TuffNerd. I do not consider myself a typical photographer and I do not do typical things. I do not pretend to be a brilliant photographer or a great artist, I simply use cameras, computers, models, and my abnormal brain to translate the images comprised of tiny electrical pulses from said brain into existence so that others may also enjoy them.
If I sent you a friend request, it means I see potential benefit in collaboration and I hope you like my work. If you do and want to be part of it feel free to contact me, I don't like approaching people to shoot out of nowhere or sending form letters.
I will still be available for select paid and TFP shoots on a case by case basis, but most of my time and energy will now be devoted to publishing PlayNerd® Magazine, please message me directly if you are interested in modeling for a new sexy sci-fi print magazine, which is my half of the double magazine Coffin Cuties® and PlayNerd®. If you are interested in the horror genre, please contact my partner, Mike Hearse
Studio 3D is now located in the Station North Arts District at the Copycat Building
, near Baltimore's Penn Station.
