First thing I note is he has desaturated most of his shots. Probably done some dodging and burning or set a color overlay and reduced that with a mask.

You should check out the tutorial at this site:

I think the results are very close to what you want and only require a little tweaking.

I just had a quick try!

Here is the original and the trial I have done

I got it to look like this using the previous technique, not quite right but sure a step in the right direction I think......

If anyone else wants to have a try be my guest

I think it's a great try. You may want to get your mask a little more tight around your main subject though.

Actually, scooter, I like the image you did better than the guy's work you were trying to emulate. His pictures all seem too murky with that effect. He should be doing vampire fashion or perhaps coal miner equipment photos.

Used my Illustrated Look and then a Hue/Sat. adjustment layer/Colorize to match the first sample and used the mask to bring back some color.
