    What is it that you like or what more specifically is your question? How to achieve that lighting? Like which strobes to buy or how to set them up.. be a little more specific?

    Well use a small aperture, like f/11.
    Get some lights or strobes, play a little with them so that you have a similar light.
    After you take the photos increase the contrast, and maybe the saturation, and play a little with the color balance too.

    Crank up the contrast. Add Noise. Oversaturate.

    But before you ever get to PS, just stand someone too close to a background and use harsh direct strobes.

    Also grab some gels, it will change the strobes and umbrellas doing some of the oversaturating for you.
