    It is a very elaborate, very knowledgable use of lights in the first place!
    And if that is arranged and set up with the necessary knowledge, then not too much post processing is necessary. Only some to make them stand out the way they do, upping the contrasts some more, and sharpening the photos to the point of almost oversharpening them and voilĂ .
    But this person KNEW what they were doing BEFORE they released the shutter.

    some of it looks like HDR or a Dave Hill effect. It is Photoshopped I believe so.

    It's definitely a combo of lighting and post processing. They look sort of HDR-ish; the last one is definitely HDR. The others, I'm not 100% sure (99%). It also looks like a high pass filter was applied in photoshop.

    I'm sure the photographer took great pictures to begin with but they look very photoshopped.

    And if? That doesn't diminish their quality in any way. It enhances what must have started out as good photography. It only shows that this photographer knows all there is to know to create some outstanding photos. Arrangement, composition, lighting, exposure to begin with. And all the pp-techniques to make his photos perfect.

    One of the keys for getting that 'look' in post processing is managing the mid-tone contrast.

    One of the tools that allows mid-tone contrast control is found in either Adobe Camera Raw (ACR) or Adobe Photoshop Lightroom (LR3) is the "Clarity" slider.

    Another couple of time honored techniques they used were Dodge, Burn, and vignetting.

    So they used a combination of good composition, good photographic technique, good lighting technique, and good post processing skills to make those images.
