    Really, as reachme2003 has mentioned, the low ceiling may restrict your model height - most probably sit-down only. Another issue is that your room better be fully air-conditioned, as the modeling lights may get hot. You'll also need to light-proof the room.

    Small studios charge $50-$70 for a 2-hour block for room and equipment usage only. You may want to take it from there.

    If I remembered correctly, you still have to apply for the home business scheme through HDB. But don't worry it's just a formality, usually just take a day.

    But if you are going to be running your studio regularly as a business, you might have to check with the relevant authorities regarding fire safety and electrical loads.

    How big is the studio going to be? Can you take full height portrait shots using, say, an 85mm lens or do you need to use a WA lens, which is not really suitable for portraitures. Also, 3 lights may not be enough. I would say that you should have a minimum of 4 lights available for use (whether you need to use all of them at once or just occasionally is another issue).
