I would suggest you ask him to keep the sky out of the frame.  That's
probably the biggest DFN giveaway.  Next would be exposure - I would
suggest at least one stop under exposed but with snow, hmmm, I'm not
sure, maybe even more.  If it's sunny you should keep the sun as a
backlight.  Next would be lens stuff - he should use adequate
filtration to have aperture roughly where it would be were he shooting
at night.  Finally, maybe he should consider using the same stock he
would use at night.
