    Hello to everybody,

    I am not a professional in photography, so I will need some help.

    I need to have a photography studio, so that photos of models can be taken there.

    I need to know your recommendations on:

    -best price-quality digital camera (its name and specifications and model)
    -necessary studio light equipment for taking photos in this studio

    The approximate size of photo studio would be around 30 sq. meters.

    If I need to provide more information for you guys to help me set up this photography studio, I will be happy to provide you some.

    Speaking about my budget, it is average....I understand it is a relative word, but still. Your suggestions and recommendations would be very much appreciated. Thank you in advance.

    Alex.

    Yer throwing a needle into a haystack. There probably isn't a "best" camera. Do your own research instead of asking generalized questions.

    Right. Makes me wonder, if you have to ask all of this, what are you doing trying to start a photography studio in the first place?

    Any modern DSLR can do portraiture in a studio. How big of prints do you want? If you're lighting, chances are you're going to be low ISO, and most all cameras perform well there. Your range here is $500 to over $8000.

    Glass can run you $100 to $2000 for decent lenses for model shoots.

    But if you really want best price/performance, go hasselblad digital. They're not cheap but man, those cameras alone will make you into the next Annie Leibowitz!!!

    As little as $600 or you cold easily, easily go over $50,000. You'll need lights, stands, modifiers, backdrops, backdrop stands, props (chairs, etc), some way to trigger the lights (or you could go with constant light... and burn everyone, but meh...). I'm going to abso-smurfly kill myself for recommending this, but go to Strobist. You can at least get an idea of what you might need there. (Personally, I don't do the 'strobist thing', but they have some good stuff on the site.)

    You're going to have to give us something to go on. Definitely need more specifics.

    I figured the three exclamation points were enough to indicate sarcasm. But as long as we're spending someone else's money...

    Welcome to the wide world of "oh crap, I think I bit off more than I can chew".

    Learn photography, then bother with the studio end. ;)
