Mitch Tummel fully embraced his incidental switch to modeling and has been living the life ever since. While he grew up in a small town in Michigan, Mitch’s favorite thing was action sports and sports in general. From a very young age, he was racing dirt bikes, and he nursed the idea of making it his full-time career. He set out to launch his dirt bike racing career, and he began to win some major events. Everything turned around when one of his sponsors offered him the opportunity to shoot for winter apparel.
Mitch Tummel knew nothing about modeling, and he never considered it a path worth following. He didn’t give it any thought, and he went on with his racing activities. About a month later, some of the photos he took for the winter apparel collection were posted on the brand’s website and social media pages. In a few weeks, some big modeling and management agencies began to reach out to Mitch. Being someone who never shies away from new opportunities, he talked to some of the agencies and signed his first modeling contract in 2017 when he was just 16.
This kick-started Mitch Tummel’s foray into new terrains. He soon started his first test shoots with Retina Conspiracy, and over the past three years, he has collaborated with many large companies and agencies. He has gained a large following as a model and fashion personality, and he has featured in lots of magazines and fashion editorials. Mitch, although becoming a model overnight in an unplanned fashion, has fully embraced the calling and is excelling at it.
He took a break from work late 2019 to complete his senior year and graduated shortly before the COVID-19 pandemic hit. Some of his plans once the pandemic fully blows over include creating an editorial book with some fashion photographers. He is also focusing on acting workshops with plans to break into the acting world in some years or even sooner.
Mitch has gotten the opportunity to travel all over the United States since his modelling career kicked off. He has also met a lot of people and gained insights on new things to try his hands on. His podcast, The Mitch All In is one of his favorite projects at the moment, and it is gradually gaining traction.
Versatility is one of Mitch Tummel’s strong suits. He puts in his utmost best to everything he tries his hands on. He loves showing off the cool side of him by posting updates about his career and activities on his social media pages. And he has made himself very open and approachable for anyone that needs insights on starting a career in modeling.
Mitch effortlessly connects with people, which has helped him get through so many doors. He also spots interesting projects easily, and his hunger to accomplish big things keeps pushing him to do more. He has transitioned from dirt bike racing to modeling, and in a few years, he will try out acting. Mitch is taking no prisoners as he is focused on etching his name on the right side of things. He has big goals and a lot of ideas which he hopes to accomplish. He wants his audience to see him as an inspiration to never give up. “I want everyone to get a cool insight into what’s possible through me and to not give up on their goals. It is important to be open-minded on new opportunities in life! Make sure to enjoy it and have good surroundings. You have one shot,” he says.
