I have been searching the forum for advice on setting up a portrait studio. My concern is primarily equipment needed. I have set up and run a business for 4 years so I know what I need to do in terms of advertising, legal, sales. I do not know exactly what equipment I need. I have: Nikon D2x 2-4 G flashcards, 1-1 G, 1-512 MB ring flash, sb-300 50mm lens,17-100 mm wide angle, 70-200 mm zoom, macro tripod 2-600 watt strobe w/ softboxes, portable backdrop stand, G4 intel based imac, photoshop,aperture tripod, (need a new one though) I plan on providing family,senior,baby, and business portraits. I know its just the nature of threads to quickly get off topic so I think this would be most useful to me and other readers if the experienced pros that understand stocking a portrait studio would simply list the items they find most useful, rather than delve into long explanations of what each item does, why its needed, or other aspects of starting a business. I'm sorry if this sounds demanding or whatever, I don't mean to be, really. I just feel more people would read it if it looked like a simple itemized list. Hopefully this will lead to more people posting as well. Of course I understand if some people feel the need to elaborate so please feel free. I've been a photographer for 6 years and went to a 2 year school to get an AA in photography, so I understand how the equipment works,etc. I guess my biggest worry is that I will buy a bunch of stuff I don't really need and will never use. Thanks you so much for all the advice.
