  Professional? in a big magazine shoot?

Easy: Two to four 40"x60" softboxes..several umbrellas, translucent and,silver and white. Multiple reflectors.
Snoots, gobos, barn doors.
White studio floor with black walls; 50 ft X 100 Ft should be fine.
Multiple strobes with variable power output up to 5 K/ws
Multiple backdrops or chroma key system.
All in all maybe around $30K to $50K.

This should suffice for "professional quaility."

I hope you see the humor in my post.
Your question is kinda' like asking "which car is good for going fast."
