Stumbled across this guitarist and really like this song, However i cannot seem to figure out if it's in standard tuning or alternate tuning, and also what style of music is this? he's not playing a classical guitar or using classical technique.

I would just call it Fingerstyle acoustic guitar.

I don't have a guitar with me so I can't tell for sure whether he is in an alternate tuning or not. The shapes he's using aren't too common in standard tuning. You could pretty easily find it out with a guitar, he plays a lot of open strings.
