Marc Hauser has captured the portraits of numerous celebrities during his illustrious career, including Michael Jordan, Woody Allen, Sophia Loren, Julia Roberts, Dennis Rodman, and recently Lollapalooza musicians. Although sessions with Hauser usually start around $1,200, this philanthropically-oriented Groupon covers up to five corporeal beings, whether they be children, adults, pets, or eldritch whisperers from the outer regions, all without dishing out the kind of dough with which celebrities bake. There is an additional charge per extra person, pet, or cardboard standup of Yoda. Following the shoot, you will receive one high-quality, 8"x10" fine art print of the portrait to hang on the wall, spam message boards on the internet, or staple over the actual face represented in the picture. Extra prints will be available for purchase.
