How to make colors like Jordan Voth

Hello everyone,

It's my first message on this forum, i'm a french photographer (beginner level i think), and it's been like 10 hours that i'm working on photoshop or searching on the web how to do colors like these:

This guy is really good, colors are saturated, tones are deep, but realistic. Skins are nicely colored, i don't know how to say it, but all his tones look fantastic.

Don't you think so?

I am trying to achieve, but no way

What do you think of this?

Thanks in advance, whatever will be your answers.

Sorry to be on other guy asking how to do an effect or a specific processing.

He sells actions on his website. Those might help. His colors look more desaturated, actually, not saturated, at least to me.

Thanks for sharing his site url. He has a gift for making his subjects look like they're really having fun

Desaturated, you think?

Maybe but tones look very deep at the same time!

Ok i will try!!

What kind of cross processing mshi ?

Thanks for your answer, there is hundred of people asking him how to do his processing, maybe it isnt simple at all?

Once i will have the solution, i'll make actions for the forum.

Download some of his images and open them up in PS. Using INFO to sample and gather data will reveal the method.

Mshi: Ok finally there is not much informations available with the INFO lead. There is nothing about layers, ...

Just camera raw tweakings and exifs.

But thanks!

I didn't know you're totally new to Photoshop. Open his image up in PS, and then go to Window-->Info for the tool.
