Basic studio photo light kit?


We're in the process of renting our photo studio. We're Montreal-based, and it's primarily aimed at semi-pro photographers. Sometimes, video crews come in too.

At the beginning, we didn't offer flash heads / lights but it looks like every shoot needs lights.

Here's our current setup :

- 1 x  400W studio strobe light with 80 x 140cm softbox

- 1 x 400W studio strobe light with 22" beauty dish with honey comb

The strobes are optically triggered.

What do you think of this as a basic kit? If you rent a small photo studio, what would you need, as a minimum? We are discussing if we need a third light as a hair light or different applications. What about reflectors or blockers?

Thanks for your insights,

Heri from StudioDuPlateau
