Could someone tell me how does one create this type of photographs? Here is a sample picture of what I'm thinking of.

Is it the shutter, if so is it very slow or very fast, or maybe aperture? I am a bit of an amateur but looking to explore many different ways to take pictures, so thanks for any suggestions.
Thanks.

I don't think there is anything in particular regarding aperture or shutter speed taking high contrast shots. In this case the photo seems heavily processed (too much in my opinion). I suspect the contrast was manually increased on the post processing stage in CS3 or other image editing program. If you want to overexpose your photo - just use shutter speeds longer than what your light meter suggests.

It looks to be a more intense processing of B&W.

The technical terms for shots with high or low contrast etc is called High Key and Low Key...

You can do some searches around google and find examples of both.

so from what you are saying, this is a post processing effect?

& maybe some black levels increased..
But increasing or decreasing the exposure is just a matter of a click. (in RAW editing softwares)

It can be. You could pull it off with lighting though. Like film days. Strobes and exposure metering. Make the shadows underexposed while blowing out the highlights...
