At this point I have to ask:

1. Are your indoor shots portraits etc?
2. What type of shots are your outdoor pics going to be?
3. Intended use of the pics ie commercial, course project of purely self interest?

The reason I ask is because studio photography is a fairly specialised subject and for profesional results usually 3-4 lamps/flash lamps would be required for illuminating the subject. For the outdoor shots then lighting with a portable power supply is almost essential.

I wish you well with your venture but with studio lighting you do need expert advice, a single flash will not give acceptable results in the finished pic. Setting up your own studio is an expensive venture and not for the feint hearted.
Sorry if all this sounds negative but you do need to know all the pitfalls or things could get expensive. I would be inclined to have a chat with the peeps at your nearest photographic studio for advice on startingout, you will normally find them more than willing to give you the correct advice.

It would have been nice if you had acknowledged Stuartli for taking the trouble to supply you with the link.
Common decency old chap, or is saying thanks a thing of the past!
