it seems as though he gels the lights, then adds a subtle colour shift in PP that compliments those in cam colours, from the "clint eastwood" style ones. + some everyday d & B

3 years in school? If you are mediocre photographer without pretty much any knowledge about studio lighting, it's possible to become good with lighting in a year without any schools. Just read everything you can from the internet, buy few well known and acclaimed dvd's about the subject and when you have learnt and know what kind of eguipment you need for your reguirements, buy it and then start experimenting and learning, while constantly reading more. All information you need to learn to be good at lighting is on the internet. It's up to you if you can pick up the good stuff out from all the crap and how you use it to learn.

Re: How to get the Patrick Hoelck look?

Even Helmut Newton had his photos processed by other people, he only supervised them. So wondering (all much worse is decrying them) whether the photos of any professional photographer are processed in PS seem to be pointless. If the photographer wants to do his job, he can't afford spending many hours in PS and the post production is a must in a commercial world. Post-production was, is , and will be a part of the business.
But to get a great photo it still means many hours of studio work (and photographer's talent).
Just my two cents.
