It's a bit of a catch-22 situation, because you have not made a name for yourself as a pro, and doing the studio work will help get your name out to a wider audience.
@3dPhoto - you don't mention whether the stint at the studio is on a fulltime basis or an ad hoc one (ie taking portraits when there is a demand). Also, you have to consider things like whether the studio will regard you as an employee and whether they will be paying your tax and national insurance (I presume you are in the UK) or whether you will be employed as a freelancer/contractor in which case you will have to pay your own tax/NI. Also, will you need to take out insurance for breakage, theft etc if you are using your own gear? All these things add up and I would say that £17 per hour is very little!
