Fashion and portrait photographer Michael Grecco recently photographed Will Smith for the final Sports Illustrated cover of 2015. Smith recently starred in the critically-acclaimed movie Concussion, which "shines a light on football's darkest corner and the future of America's game."
In the video below you can see Grecco working in a studio environment with Smith. Using a Sony A900, Grecco captured a variety of portraits of Smith. For the SI cover, he wanted a serious portrait that showed Smith as Dr. Bennet Omalu, the person that he portrays in the movie.
