im not a ps guru but i think that pic didn't need much editing. the guy in the picture most probably took that pic using a webcam, with a white light in front of him so that his face looks bright.

OK,i'm not sure how to get it 100% like that one you showed (if i had a before and after it would have been easier). I've tried fiddling around and come up with a few ways that MAY help, not too sure.

Firstly, try going to image>adjustments>shadows/highlights then set the shadows about midway and the highlights very low. Click OK. Now go to image>adjustmens>hue/saturation and then set the hue and saturation to your liking (when i tried it i set the hue to 22 and saturation to about 11 or 12).

Something else you might try is image>adjustments>exposure and fiddling with those options then also changing the hue/saturation as above.

You could also go to image>adjustments>match colour and fiddle with those options (also followed by the hue/saturation options).

You could then try going to image>adjustments>curves and then choose the preset called 'Cross Process'.

If all else fails you can download an action-colour pack from any of the numerous PS-resource sites (google Photoshop Actions then just search for a colour pack, they are extremely popular). Some of them have some awesome colour-schemes and are easy actions to apply.

Don't know if this helped at all, hope so though.
