I'm a content creator on the YouTube platform that specializes lifestyle & travel photography, cinematography. With a love for technology, I have built a brand that brings these passions to life, as well as my passion for the art of coffee. Outside of educating my audience my audience and creating reviews for brands in these fields, I also create visual media content for brands and businesses that can be used across their own platforms.
I'M SIDNEY BAKER-GREEN
The Love of My Life
I used to joke about being the single male wedding photographer. Honestly, calling myself a hopeless romantic is an understatement. I grew up in a generation that really didn't believe in love. But all of my prayers were answered when I met Olivia. Now I was oblivious at first. I had no idea she liked me. In fairness, I wasn't used to people liking me... I wasn't used to people taking an interest in me. Little did I know, our little text conversations here and there would change my life completely.
QUEEN OF MY HEART
We Were Dancing
Overtime our conversations got deeper, and slowly I opened up to her with the certainty that she would run away and that I'd end up back at square 1: alone. But.... she didn't. She showed me unconditional love, and more importantly taught me what unconditional love truly looks like. Her kind heart and kindred spirit turned my entire world upside down... little did I know that it would shape my approach to weddings. When my first wedding of the season approached, I realized something hand changed, I shot that wedding not as a photographer doing his job, but as if it was my own. And then things started click....
Dancing With Our Hands Tied
I FELT why the details all the way down to the shoes were important: when I am old and my brain starts to lose it's potency, I want to be able to know for certain that I can remember the best day of my life in it's entirety. I FELT why the true meaning of tears of joy: because sometimes tears are the best way to express how you feel. But most importantly, I SAW THE BEAUTY IN MARRYING YOUR BEST FRIEND: because I could finally relate to what it means to have someone in your life that loves you to the ends of the earth. When I approach a wedding, I'm shooting for your future children and grand children, I'm shooting for grandma who couldn't make it, and, most importantly, I am shooting for you, becuase this is your legacy

THE CREATION EXPERIENCE
From simple social media campaigns, to highly detailed on location content creation campaigns, my diverse skill set and range of equipment allows me to uniquely serve each brands needs.
Each brand, business, and influencer has a unique story. Often times, a lot of blood, sweat, and tears has gone into the work that you do. I approach each campaign with those things in mind, and strive to create quality content that engages your core audience, and attracts your ideal client. Treating each campaign as if it for my own business.
After you inquire, you'll receive a welcome email that contains a media kit, and where we will go over the details of the proposed project. The media kit contains the details of my analytics. The numbers that are most important to any brand or business looking to work with a creative artist. The media kit includes info such as watch time, ranking of videos, engagement rates, SEO strategy on different platforms, and all the other details that are pertinent to a collaboration. We will then schedule a phone call / Skype call to go over the details of project.
After going over the numbers, the next step is to define the type of campaign best for the project. Some brands are in need of reviews on a platform such as YouTube, and some brands only need social media content for their preferred platform. However, other brands are in need of on location destination shoots or concept shoots that helps build hype and generate talk about their product / services in a organic lifestyle fashion. My skill set & equipment allows me to tackle these campaigns with ease.
After we have defined the type of campaign, you will receive an all in one email with a proposal that has a break down of the itemized price list, a contract outlining the terms of our collaboration, and the payment portal. If we have a big project such as destination shoot, we will then plan out the logistics and timeline of the shoot.
This is the step where we start creating content! This step will look different depending on the type of campaign. On location destination shoot tend tend to span for a few a days, while social media content plans may span from a day to year long contracts. The execution of the the campaign will be discussed and defined during the logistics talk.
The final step in the process in delivery of the visual media products! This step can happen once or multiple times depending on the duration and terms of the campaign. Photo content is delivered in an online gallery where you are able to download the media files. Video content is delivered through a cloud based service that allows for easy access and sharing. If the project is a month to month / year long campaign, then photos will be updated in the gallery as new content is generated, and videos will continued to be delivered through cloud based services.
Each brand is uniquely different, and each project will require a different amount of time, a different execution, and different planning. Therefore, I do not offer quotes without working with the brand and collecting all the details of the desired project.
Of all the make or break decisions a business must make, marketing and digital media is vital in our age of social media. Make no concessions when it comes to executing a visual media strategy that will attract the client truly made for your brand.
