About Eric Muetterties Photography & Studio 52

Self Portrait

What we do:

We specialize in photography and video of products and people, both in the studio or on-location. Attention to detail and listening to you and what your needs are is very important to us, so that you get the best imagery for your budget.

Precision masking of very complex and/or transparent objects from the background.

Our transparency masking technique is unique in that it allows for adjustment of the amount of “see-thru” that transparent objects have. This allows for a background image to show through and the amount of opacity to be adjusted, to your requirements, after the fact.

We are very security conscious! All processing and retouching of files occurs in-house, protecting your product images and proprietary designs from theft or piracy. We do not ship files overseas or to outside retouchers, unless that is something you require. Files are delivered via secure FTP. No one else is going to see your products before you want them to be seen. We sign NDA’s all the time and are very conscious of your product line being secure from corporate theft.

Micro-macro work using medium format equipment is one specialty of ours. We have photographed objects as small at 1/4 inch square and produced hi-resolution, very detailed images of very small items. Our focus stacking equipment and related software allows for sharp images at very shallow depths of field.

SF Bay Area Studio Facility:

We have a 1000 sq. ft. studio located in Dublin, California, a short 45 min. drive from Downtown San Francisco and a short walk from the Dublin BART Station. Why be stuck in SF when you can enjoy a relaxed reverse commute in the Valley? Parking? Right outside the studio door! Stoneridge Mall - 2 miles away.  San Francisco Outlets - 5 miles away, all kinds of stores within a mile or two for that one prop or piece of clothing you forgot to bring for the shoot.

Why the name Studio 52? You'll have to come in and we'll tell you the story...

"Love what you do and do what you love"
