First learn how to expose the pictures the way you want them to turn out... then shoot accordingly.

You can try with a camera with remote trigger, 1 flash, 1 softbox, 1 reflector for a start. 2 light stand or 2 assistants required.

All those beauty dish, strobe, continuous lights, umbrella can always come later.

it all depends on how you want to shoot and what kind of effects you need.

Look up/out for books at the public library under 'Photography'>portraits and Lighting for portraits. Loads of good information there.

Also, can look up the internet and youtube.
