Next week, an individual with deep pockets will make the winning bid on a photo opp unlike any other. High School for the Performing and Visual Arts grad and famed celebrity photographer Mark Seliger is donating a photo shoot as an auction item for the school's Feb. 24 benefit luncheon.

This rare opportunity will place the high bidder in the company of some pretty big names — Bruce Springsteen, Jerry Seinfeld, President Barack Obama and Julia Roberts. Seliger's work is regularly published in GQ, Vanity Fair and Rolling Stone. Between 1987 and 2001, Seliger shot more than 125 covers for Rolling Stone. 

Luncheon chairs Gina Fish and George Lancaster are over the moon that not only did Seliger agree to accept the honor as HSPVA 2015 Distinguished Alumnus but he also volunteered to contribute the portrait to the fundraising effort. Bidding begins at $5,000. Not a bad starting price to be among the ranks of Christy Turlington, Kerry Washington, Jay Z and others.

Seliger's appearance will be particularly interesting as he will arrive in Houston straight from the Academy Awards where he is set to shoot exclusively for Vanity Fair at the ceremonies and the swank VF after party.

Tickets to the luncheon at River Oaks Country Club are available here.
