A lot of images on DPR have EXIF shown....check them out.  Studio typically means strobes so the sync speed is going to determine your minimum.  1/200 is pretty standard for me when doing a headshot.  Action shots might need something faster.  I'd recommend using a light meter with flash metering - and minimally a white balance reference card (WhiBal etc) - and/or a Color Checker card.
