The online digital photography forum recently saw one of their members honored with a Hot One Award from the Professional Photographers of America.

NoBS Photo Success, an online source of digital photography tools and resources, recently announced that one of its own members was honored by the Professional Photographers of America. Photoshop guru and professional photographer Craig Minielly received the PPA's Hot One Award in the Camera Capture/Processing category for his popular Photoshop actions, Craig's Actions Production Assistants -- Creative Suite. It was selected as a winner for 2008.

Previously a film photographer, Minielly dove right into digital photography in its infancy and started experimenting with Photoshop. Minielly is constantly looking for ways to simply workflow and processing for professional photographers the world over. His hard work has finally paid off for him with the Hot One Award.

In the January issue of the NoBS Photo Success newsletter, he discusses more in depth how he got started in the business of creating Photoshop actions. To see that interview, go to

"There will be more Actions to come, one area in particular is the iTunes Series," said Minielly, when asked if he had more Photoshop actions in the works. "These are creative production styles that I will be adding to continually, as new styles work their way forward from the foggy depths of my brain to the Action Palette! I also have a few other areas that will receive my Action attention, but I'll save those as surprises to be enjoyed later."

Craig Minielly has been a NoBS member since the inception of the digital photography forum, and has become one of its most important vendors and supporters. "Actually it was more of an invite; as James and I had been discussing various forums and the ego issues that always seemed to surround them, he spoke of the plan he and Rob were working on," said Minielly, when asked how he became involved with NoBS. "Flash forward a few months and it was now all in place so I was happy to get involved as a member sponsor and vendor. My personal congrats to them both again, and to their fabulous support people here for all the hard work and personal time that they've all invested!"

As a thank you to NoBS for its constant support of his work, Minielly extended a limited-time discount for members only.
