Welcome to Sound Originals!
My name is Dan Cassuto. My yellow sidekick is a 2-year-old lab named Duke!
Together, we create fantastic photography and videography for amazing clients in Seattle, Washington and beyond.
(Duke is still learning how to work the camera, but he's becoming an editing pro.)
I launched Sound Originals after a rewarding 10-year journey as a television journalist and storyteller for NBC, ABC and CBS stations - including KING 5 in Seattle.
As a reporter, I covered a different story every day -- from President Barak Obama's visits to bald eagles to dog parks to anything and everything in between.
You can trust me to capture important events, like weddings, with outstanding quality.
Award-winning skills and experience.
I've been fortunate to receive some of the industry's most prestigious awards.
My approach to storytelling is simple.
I've worked on both sides of the camera. You have a right to be particular about how you look. Trust me, I understand!
My job is to help you look great! Flawless lighting. Excellent camera techniques.
Most people tell me they want natural and authentic pictures or video. But they feel awkward during the shooting process. That's normal. I can help!
I have an instinct for recognizing and nurturing powerful, memorable and original approaches to storytelling.
I notice the little things that make a big impact.
Over the years, I've met thousands of people and put together thousands of stories from thousands of locations and venues. I've interviewed everyone from Hillary Clinton to Cindy Crawford. But my favorite stories are always about ordinary people crafted in extraordinary ways.
