How was the photo taken?

Another stunning set of photos Neil has just shared with his fans on Facebook. I'd love to know how #1 of 13 in the new trombone player series was taken. Not just the specs (though definitely those too) but how Neil selected that spot, what he saw if anything in the ambient light, how he told man to stand, did he tell man to look serious or thoughtful or what? Did he tell him to slightly tilt head or did that just happen? Is that great rim light behind left ear natural or added (hidden flash) light? Etc... Etc.... And what light did he use with what softbox and how close did assistant hold it (I don't think this is all ambient as there are catch lights in eyes).
