How would i go about achieving these skin tones

Hey guys,
I recently came across this photographer thats goes by the name RVDS and his skin tones are awesome! I wanted to know if anyone had any idea how he achieves them? I did actually contact him asking him if he could point me in the right direction to learn not just plain out tell me and i got abit of a rude reply aha. Any help would be great (:

My guess is that he's using a custom camera profile and a custom white balance for a start. That would account for the extremely clean tones. He's using some very slight Diffuse Glow in the skin and probably fading back quite a lot, as it's just there...

These are all shot with a warm white balance sure, but the key is golden/brown gradient maps. Would bet my grandmother's tortoise on it.

I wrote a response in reply to a similar thread here. If that's not understandable at the moment, a quick google turned up this simple tutorial too. Over on ModelMayhem you might find this thread invaluable too.

All the best.
