Setting up a Photo Studio

I’ve been doing some research into setting up my own Photographic Portrait business,  I had been concerned about the potential costs involved in getting the equipment. This was until I came across an article by Digital Camera World titled

“Home studio setup: 6 things every photographer needs”

The main things required are

  • Backdrop
  • Main Light Source
  • Camera
  • Hair Light (2nd light)
  • Reflector
  • Model

The article was accompanied by the following diagram, which demonstrates how little equipment is actually requires to set up a basic studio.

Digital  Camera World is an invaluable source of information for photographers and also reviews products on the market,  such as Studio lighting Kits and cameras.

Although the above is a very basic studio set up, it has made me realise that it need not cost a fortune to set myself up to do portraits and photo-shoots, and that doing this on a self employed basis is a real possibility.
