This is Chilly Sheep, the home of software development and photography services by James Baldwin.

What I do

As Chilly Sheep, I build award winning software and deliver fast, bespoke web development solutions. Whether contracting directly for software houses, or taking on outsourced projects from design agencies, I create successful, elegant web development solutions using the latest Microsoft technologies.

Contracting

I contract in-house with software development companies on the Microsoft stack, building cutting edge Umbraco, C# ASP.NET MVC, ASP.NET CORE and JavaScript web applications following Agile methodologies.

I am currently contracting at Technical Labs as their Head of Development, building enterprise scale systems and overseeing specialist and large scale project roll outs.

Freelancing

I also take on freelance work with a number of design agencies in London and in the West Midlands. I offer either overflow support for their web development requirements as they arise, or in some instances work as their entire remote web development partner.

My work generally consists of taking supplied designs and turning them into content managed solutions, built on the Umbraco platform.

By outsourcing work to me, my freelance partners can focus on what they do best – building strong brands and designing fantastic web sites and applications.

Photography

When not writing software, I also freelance as a photographer and filmmaker. After considerable time spent shooting bands and gigs for leisure, I've found myself naturally specialising in shooting live music performances and creating music videos.

I work with a number of bands and venues, and together create awesome imagery. Visit my dedicated photography site for full information.
