Basically he is using or mimicking single point source window light. This light is very soft and if it falls on creases within the backdrop material it is slightly forgiving. Personally I find material backgrounds to be too hard to control without crease shadows. My personal choice is to use a painted wall or hang paper. If its just head shots like this, then the paper doesn't have to be so big..
