Making it as a professional model can be extremely difficult given how competitive and saturated the market is now. Considering that Mitch Tummel has effortlessly entered the modeling circle and risen so quickly to elite ranks, he only proves that he was meant for this career. Today, he’s aiming for the stars as he prepares to become one of the biggest names to enter male modeling.
An up-and-coming fashion and lifestyle model and growing social media influence, Mitch Tummel has what it takes to succeed. Only a few years ago, he thought that road to success involved dirt bikes. He’s an excellent sportsman who grew up around the Motocross road in Michigan Lake. But a chance encounter with a modeling scout would take him on a new route. “It was for a shoot for their new winter apparel,” remembers Mitch Tummel. “I didn’t even know modeling was much of a thing, and I never gave it any thought to try it myself.”
Today, his irresistible charisma and natural charm in front of the camera has turned him into a fully-booked and highly in-demand professional model, posing for some of the biggest photographers, magazines, and online publications. Moreover, Mitch has a solid work ethic and works hard to be the best at whatever he puts his mind to. Hence, the successful run in modeling as of late.
Mitch’s first modeling contract came to fruition just when he had hit sixteen years of age. Since then, he’s been off to the races. His most significant break came in 2018 after he would get the chance to travel across America on a photoshoot tour with Louisiana-based photography icon Retina Conspiracy, who has over 17,000 followers. Mitch would gain the attention of some of the most prominent magazines and publications, getting calls and bookings from Fashionable Male, Vent Magazine, Pretty Male Models, Vanity Teen, and many others.
Since his shift from dirt bike racing to modeling, Mitch Tummel has come a long way and now has various brands, projects, and publications in his portfolio. Moreover, he has grown a loyal fan base and increased his social media exponentially in the last few years. He now has over 152,000 followers on Instagram and another 19,700 on TikTok.
Although the journey has been more than enjoyable, Mitch admits that there have been some challenges. He has traveled a lot for work, given that there aren’t many modeling opportunities in Michigan. The model also had to adjust significantly to the grind of shoots, coordinations, outfitting schedules, and so on. But Mitch has brought his competitive spirit into his modeling game, always ready to take on a challenge and give it his all.
All in all, Mitch has done a tremendous job of maintaining a thriving modeling career while also continuing his studies and dirt bike racing. He has also started working on other projects, including a podcast called The Mitch All In, where he shares his journeys and adventures and teaches people the essential principles and lessons that have brought him to where he is today. Mitch is also currently taking up acting classes and hopes to start landing acting jobs soon.
