But for this edition he is doing something different. Throughout his career, whenever he has been on location he has enjoyed shooting images of the places he has been – landscapes- and now he has decided to share a few. All the Bodies - 'In Action', 'At Rest', and 'Intertwined' are still his main focus, as are the portraits of celebrities, athletes, models, performers, and real people. And they are always viewable at the links below.

The 'Bodies in Action' photos feature pro athletes, film and TV stunt people, and spectacular dancers from great companies. Note that in each photo that appears to have more than one person in it, it is actually the same person in tandem with themselves.

Mitchel’s video partner is Sam Schmitz.
