Mark is a remarkable photographer. We were honored and a bit humbled to have hit shoot some frames of us. We will cherish these amazing photos for the rest of lives. Thanks so much for such an incredible offer as there was no way we could've done this without such a great deal.

It's near the Western Ave. Metra station, but other than that the location is isolated. They were prompt and get good results. To get additional prints or images on a CD was rather pricey. ($350 with a discount for the CD).

What You'll Get


Although capturing a friend’s smile in a photograph preserves pleasant memories, capturing tigers in a photograph just makes them angrier. Keep predators out of portraits with today’s Groupon: for $99, you get a photo-shoot package at Marc Hauser Photography (a $1,750 value). Up to eight people can participate in the shoot, including pets. The package includes:

  • One-hour photo shoot conducted by Marc Hauser
  • One 11” x 14” print
  • One 8” x 10” print
  • Two 5” x 7” prints<p>

Marc Hauser immortalizes sitters in a simple, classical portrait style. Subjects can don outfits of their choice—be it finely tailored business suits or the cardboard sweaters they received for their birthdays—to start studio time, during which Hauser mans the shutter for a one-hour snap session. “I do anything to get a good picture,” he once told the Chicago Reader. After entrapping powerful poses and showcasing shiny smiles, customers receive four prints that come in perfect sizes for resting atop a fireplace mantel or carrying to clubs to convince bouncers of their identities. High-resolution digital images from the shoot can be purchased at $250 per image ($350 for up to five; $500 for up to 10; $850 for all), and customers can acquire extra prints for 50 percent off on the day of their session.

About Marc Hauser Portraits


Marc Hauser’s photographic expertise started as a 13-year-old freshman at New Trier High School, when the Wilmette native launched his boyhood hobby into adulthood with an apprenticeship under Playboy-contributing photographer Stan Malinowski. When one of the magazine's art directors visited Stan's studio, he noticed Marc's prints on the table and turned to Stan and asked, "Would your assistant like to go to California next week and shoot Carly Simon?" From there, notable assignments began to sprout, including John Mellencamp in a muddy field for his cover of Scarecrow and Led Zeppelin in a construction site in London.

Marc's style aims to capture subjects in their natural state—such as shooting family members while they're distracted and talking to each other. He often goes to great lengths to capture a unique photograph, such as speaking in funny voices to amuse kids, and barking to get dogs' attention. Above all else, he makes sure his clients feel comfortable so he can focus on getting the right shots, creating unique and striking images captured using simple parameters: shooting in black and white, with one light or natural light, around a table in his studio.

This approach to portraiture has earned Marc more than 100 awards, including Clios for advertising and a Grammy, and has landed him jobs with Rolling Stone, PepsiCo, Artista Records, and Microsoft, as well as acclaim for his images of well-known figures such as Aaron Copland, Mariel Hemingway, Michael Jordan, Dr. Timothy Leary, Sophia Loren, Patty Smith, Woody Allen, and John Waters.
