working with dark skin tone, help me please

ok , so when it comes to light skin tone I am better with it but when it comes to dark skin tones I think I have trouble with. I applied for a position and got files from someone to work on their photo to show if I can do the dramatic effect with shadows and highlights. I don't know if I can post the photo that this man attached of himself that are amateur, but I need some help and tips on working with dark skin. He wants photos to look like pics on this website

and this one
I figured that even if I don't get the interview at least I 'll get to practice something new and give it a shot applying

Re: working with dark skin tone, help

I know you can't post your prospective client's photos, but I think we might need a little more information about the question. The photos you pointed to are pretty stock head shots with abundant lighting, captured very clean. Is your source material like that? Probably someone here can get you to point B as long as we know where point A is.
