Do I need to have skills in photography ? or is that not a problem ?
I want to get into photography but I think that I would need skill first before actually getting into it. I need clarification on that so I can see what I have to do.

There are many YouTube videos out there to view and learn how to use a camera, various settings, and becoming more artistic in what you photograph. If this is something you want to explore and have it become your career, go for it.
My brother loved photography growing up as a kid and as a teenager. He joined the Air Force, and used his photography skills to have a career photographing plans, airmen, crashes, and various other aspects of life in the Air Force. He loved it. He even was assigned to document and photograph recovery of remains on Missing In Action (MIA) and prisoner's of war soldiers in Laos and France. He even photographed dignitaries who went to see the troops in Iraq.
As a CSI, I have to document and photograph and even video-tape all types of scenes. I also have to photograph graduations and promotions and other public affairs events for the Sheriff's Office. So, photography is both artistic and necessary for many careers. It's a matter of what you want to do with your photography skills. Many companies use photography to capture their employees on the job for career brochures, for motivational endeavors and for the more mundane employee identification. You could be a photographer who documents work processes - like in factories, to help streamline production, or cover major events as a photo-journalist. You could work in the environmental field and document animals, trees and other plants, global warming trends in both wildlife and plant life issues or go the route of working for companies to maintain the ecosystem...the options are endless.
But do something you love and want to do...if photography is your thing...make that your career. Best of luck to you. I hope this helps you figure it all out.
