I think you do need some sort of knowledge in photoshop, just taking photos raw won't get you far. There are so many things that just taking a picture won't do such as lighting, stray hairs, etc.
Im not a huge fan of a lot of airbrush, actually when I edit I barely use it. But I do mess with lighting a lot in photoshop because I don't own professional lighting.
So to answer your question, yes, I do think you need to learn a photo editing software. If you want to compete with other photographers. Plus a lot of people like the new vintage look.
