If not, what's best for professional work portraits - white, black or gray?

Thanks in advance

I would say gray or white. Black requires that you have a hair light in most cases to be sure that dark hair is separated from the background.

Remember that you can turn a medium gray (i.e. something like Thunder Gray paper) into just about any color desired by using gels on your background light.
