Are there any photographers in the SF Bay Area who specialize in wacky/zany/surreal portraiture?

I'm not even sure if what I'm looking for even exists, but I've recently decided to get new portraits done, and this time, I'm not looking for something staid or staged-seeming -- which is the feeling that I get from most portraits -- at all. If possible, I'd like to be depicted in a variety of crazy and/or silly situations; by 'crazy', I'm being very general, and perhaps intentionally so, because I'm not even sure what I'm looking for. I just don't want to have my picture taken among the Embarcadero with the Bay Bridge in the background, or whatever, like I've seen in so many portraits. I also realize that what I'm asking for is probably more a function of whatever tools the photographer has at hand, however their studio might be set up, or the locations they have access to, etc., and that's partly why I'm asking here. In lieu of this, 'artsy' would work too.
I'm looking to spend $500 -- maybe a bit more or a bit less, depending on contingencies, but I'm thinking this should be more than enough. Recommend away!!!
