Yes you definitely need to be really good at your interpersonal skills if you want to become a good professional photographer. The below points will help you understand how those skills will be of great help to you in the photography journey:

1. As a professional photographer, you need to meet your clients every now and then. You need to arrange meetings with them. In these meetings you will be gathering the requirements, providing your inputs and suggestion and also taking their feedback if you have completed the photographs. Therefore it becomes very much important that you mark a very good impression in such meetings. Also you need to convince your clients about each and every step that you have taken in the project and the reason behind that. Your interpersonal skills will be of great help in this regard.

2. While working for any photography agency, photographers usually work in teams. The teams not only consist the photographers but other important employees as well such as technician, editor etc. One needs to learn in this team environment and provide their individual contribution with the highest quality. At the same time they need to ensure that they are getting well along the coworkers and also that the project is going smoothly. In this scenario a photographer's interpersonal skills will be very handy.

3. A photographer no matter working as a free lancer or with an organization has to have large number of contacts. The contacts can fetch them the right work and provide the opportunities that they really deserve. Therefore they really need to focus a lot on their networking skills. In order to grow their network they need to learn how to get along with the people and how to do things in team settings and how to get things done from others. One can only succeed in this business if they have the right interpersonal skills.

Remember these skills can only be developed over the period of time and not immediately. Therefore patience and experience are required for you to achieve excellence in them. Do not rush in to it. Take your time and work on them every day.
