(David T. Kindler)

Pearl Gonzalez is a fiercely determined fighter who has had one professional MMA fight after a successful amateur career. She’s tough and can kick you ass, and sweet and funny all at the same time. I’ve shot Pearl a few times now. She’s great to work with since she can do things like kicking and jumping that other people can’t. She also looks great doing about anything.¬†We shot these in the original Sears Tower on the West Side. Pearl walked in and said, “I like this place. It’s gritty and real, like me.” I agree.
