How to achieve this color?

I know you guys are the only ones who can decypher this.
The photos are by Joakim Karlsson.

Both natural and artificial lighting has this tone I can't quite figure out.
Can some of the Pro's chime in on how I should go about achieving this?

Re: How to achieve this color?

There really is nothing to decipher. Start with tan model. Mask skin, adjust to taste. If you already have the skin masked out, you can always invert that and adjust the background a bit more on its own. I know it may not seem that obvious, but it really is. It's actually harder to obtain reasonable results if you over-complicate the approach.

Given that you still haven't posted an attempt at what you wish to achieve, I would say that you are your own biggest problem.

I agree with klev, but I also I think they might have used channel mixer to replace green and red channels with blue and set it to luminosity or multiply blending modes for the skin.

Multiply can leave you with very rough looking skin. Starting off with a tan model and good makeup, it should possible to avoid extreme solutions.

By "this tone" I assume you mean the skin tones. If your model isn't already deeply tanned, you can darken the tan with a hue/saturation adjustment layer in Multiply mode. Tweak saturation, hue, and layer opacity. (You can also use a B&W adjustment layer in multiply mode and add a slight tint.) Mask out everything except the skin, of course.
