To put it bluntly, Mitch Tummel was unexpected, if not even accidental. He was a mere kid who liked to have fun on his dirt bike in a humble town by the lake in Michigan. But when he landed modeling jobs, one after another, Mitch proved that there’s no such thing as luck. It was pure talent mixed with hard work and a little bit of charm that gained him his spot in the fashion industry.
At 16 years old, Mitch Tummel was an avid dirt bike racer when, one day, he did a photoshoot for one of his motocross sponsors. That marked the start of many more milestones and paved the way for opportunities to come his way. Soon after, Mitch was scouted by some modeling agencies, noticing his talent in working the camera and representing brands. “I wasn’t sure what to think,” said Mitch. But being one for adventure, he gave modeling a shot.
Mitch Tummel signed with his first agency, and the rest was history. His career took off like wildfire. “I started traveling and shooting and it was a very different experience for me,” recalled Mitch. The adventure and responsibility were new to him. Still, young as he was, Mitch took charge of scaling his career and was determined to make a name for himself in the industry. Today, the model remains as enthusiastic as he had been when he first began his journey.
Mitch Tummel has graced magazine covers, represented brands, did countless fashion shoots, and many more. “It’s been a crazy ride so far, but I set high goals for myself,” said Mitch. “I aspire to continue booking quality jobs, participating in some of the major fashion weeks, and pursuing acting,” he added.
Asked what he is currently up to, Mitch confessed that he is working on a photo book that will feature amazing fashion images and tell the narratives behind each photo. The photo book will be launched in 2021 and will surely captivate the fashion industry. “You never know what to expect or what you might see next,” said Mitch. His photo book will mark a new beginning for his career and further make him stand out in the fashion scene.
Working with fashion experts on high-profile projects boosted Mitch Tummel’s knowledge about the industry. He learns through the process and is always open to trying new creative things. Mitch is hands-on in his projects, from setting up for a shoot to picking out outfits. He admits that it can be challenging at times but nothing that he can’t learn over time.
Furthermore, Mitch Tummel is planning to expand his horizons beyond modeling. He is currently taking up acting development classes and plans on continuing to do so as he moves from Miami to Los Angeles. He feels that relocating to LA will open more opportunities for him. Still, while in Miami, Mitch is learning and trying many things with his two good friends who are social media influencers.
“I have always wanted to do something great,” Mitch Tummel said. “I didn’t find my niche, my nich found me,” he added. Modeling and acting were far from what Mitch had planned for himself as a kid. However, it made him realize that he could be a great and respected name in the industry. In five years, Mitch plans to showcase his talent on the world’s biggest runways and become one of the most coveted models in fashion week.
Despite his immense success, Mitch Tummel remains humble. He continually reaches out and gives back to his supporters and spreads the message that they can reach great things.
