No probs. Yes, it is all ambient light, which makes a refreshing change from a lot of the work you see at the moment which is lit to the max alla Dave Hill!

Only ambient light? Wow. I have never seen anything like it! Amazing!
BTW, the models must not move between the exposures?

Using a tripod, you would basically take differing shots of the background, varying the shutter speed to expose for shadows, midtones, highlights.

You would then shoot the model in the scene. You would probably need fast glass (v. wide apperture) to avoid motion blur and probably also a higher iso.

Then manually blend the lot together.

I'll have to try it sometime! :-) According to tags on his Flicker page it seems he used Canon 5D Mark II with very fast 35mm f1.4 lens.

I did have a go the other night with missus but the background scene didn't have enough tonal range to make it interesting. I am going to have a play tonight though so will post the results tomorrow

This images was about six exposures in the end which were hand blended in PS. I'm afraid I don't have the originals but individually they weren't much to look at!
