I'm Wil Best, born and bred in Portland, Oregon! If you are outside of the Portland area and interested in working with me, you will either have to come to me or we will have to arrange compensation for my travel and time.
Nudes I'm perfectly comfortable with, its mostly the idea of assuming positions of popularly glorified "Erotic" sexual expression that I fear can distract from the subtle (though still strong and clear, if not contrasted out of detail) sexual nuances, from the true beauty of a person who is completely comfortable in their own skin.
Have been stepping into more spiritual themes lately and would like to continue expanding into and working creatively in that direction- my recently powerful influences include but are by no means limited to Taoism, Tantra, Zen Buddhism, and Hinduism.
My idea is that by choosing to invoke and embody in ourselves avatars and heros of our classic legends, we encourage grounding that form of being more deeply into ourselves, and so I would like to do a series of shoots with various artists depicting myself in the forms of an array of gods, avatars and heroes who have inspired me.
some roles I'd like to play are:
Rama/Krishna/Vishnu/Shiva, (-these are different expressions/incarnations/avatars of the same god/being)
Neo from the Matrix
A Jedi Master
A hermit in the mountains
a monk in a monastic ruin (maybe the mossy house in lower macleay park, or perhaps another ruin you know?)
a couple in tantric embrace
a chinese emperor
a witch doctor
the hanged man of the tarot, and/or many other cards of the major arcana, for that matter.
if you have any questions, would like info on rates, or to discuss parameters and boundaries, please feel free to contact me!
Thanks very much for your time, and I look forward to working with the Best of you!
