For me it's tough to say, because I don't know what I don't know! Well, I guess I'll take a stab at it anyway.

I want to do both color and B&W, mostly portraits. I will probably keep it simple at first, going with photo paper. As for sizes I would think standard 8x10 and 11x14. I may do a little nature now and then, but at first I am going to concentrate on portrait work. As for work flow, I would say not much at first anyway. Once I get some experience under my belt I may do more. A lot depends on my budget of course.

I don't know about archival ink, so for now I would say no.

I would want a dedicated photo printer as I already have a printer for normal printing duties.

I suppose a printer that has features that can grow with my style would be desirable.
