Welcome to Firetog.com
My name is Mike Jones and this my personal website. The contents of this site consists of photographs that I have taken since I started shooting models in 2007
I'd probably class myself as a Fashion Photographer, partly because I enjoy shooting fashion shows and also doing fashion shoots, but in truth the genres I shoot go way beyond just Fashion and also include Beauty, Portrait, Swimsuit, Glamour and Nudes.
In any given year the focus can shift from one genre to another or be an eclectic mixture of all of them. For example in 2015 I shot mostly Fashion, whereas 2014 was mostly Swimwear and in years prior to that Portaits and Glamour were the primary focus.
If you are offended by nudity then this website is probably not for you as some of my concepts include a hint of eroticism. Folders that include nudity are clearly stated as NSFW.
Photography is currently just a hobby, something that I do on weekends for fun. I treat each shoot as a small project, I enjoy the process of conceptualising the shoot, recruiting a team of like-minded individuals who want to collaborate with me and of course taking part in the shoot itself.
From 2008 to 2016 I was actively shooting and on average I was doing about 25 shoots per year, mostly in the spring and summer. However, in 2017 I had other priorities that meant I wasn't able to devote much time to the hobby and as such my turnover of shoots was greatly reduced.
Going foward I hope to be able to find a better balance and would like to do a least one shoot per month.
If you are someone that would like to collaborate with me, whether you are a model, designer, MUA, hair stylist or fashion stylist then get in touch and let me know what you have to offer towards a collective collaboration.
Navigating the Website
In terms of navigating this website, for a quick overview of my work there is a section on the Home Page called Firetog Favourites. This is not all of my favourites as it is kid friendly and does not contain any NSFW images. The folder contains around 200 of my favourite "safe" images.
There is another section called By Genre which, similar to the Firetog Favourites section, is a collection of my Favourite images but sorted into various Genres.
There is also an Archives section which has shoots in Date order. It's a selection of my larger shoots, where all the images from that particular shoot can be found. Also, within the Archive section is a Models section, which is a list of some of my favourite models and a selection of images from each of their shoots.
For those looking for technical data about an image, there is a Photo Data button on each image. The button is hidden by default but can be made visible by first hovering the cursor at the top of the image so that the drop down menu appears, pause the slide show and then select the option named Show Caption/Info. The Photo Data button will appear in the bottom right.
New content and Website updates occur infrequently, usually about once per year. However, the most recent shoots will appear on my blog (blog.firetog.com) shortly after the shoot has taken place.
Thanks for visiting my website, I hope you enjoy it.
