The secret of his style of taking a photograph is actually very simple. The key point is not to let the chin and the neck slur with each other without any clear line between them. Apparent chin line will make your face appear haggard and it will look more attractive. It is a very simple attempt; you just need to point your face forward a bit. But if you shoot from the side, you can slightly lower down one of your shoulders (that faces the camera) then direct your face to the front and put it little bit sideway.
