I took the SOA Workshop in October and, I have to say, it was one of the best experiences of my life. With that being said, I picked up my rig just a couple weeks ago and wanted to make sure I was dialed in with things, so I gave the one and only Greg Smith a call.

I have to say, 2 days of his one-on-one lessons is a game changer.

Having a veteran op like Greg there critiquing and giving advice on everything from set-life and business to, obviously, the actual operating is absolutely incredible.

Putting that into a one-on-one scenario? Get outta here!

Loved the SOA workshop, but this, for me, was an extra huge help; especially after not wearing the rig for a while as a new op.

He assessed where I was at and designed the entire two days around working on specific parts of operating. Going over drills and walk-through in different scenarios. Technique-drill-real World application. An excellent teacher for sure!

Can't recommend his service enough.

Plus, the beach is right there. ;)

When I was growing up I played baseball competitively and had a private coach I went to every week to work on mechanics drills and skills. I kind of look at Greg like that, like a coach; he figures out where you need the most help and tailors the coaching around that. Greg's many years as an operator makes his advice indispensable and worth every penny.  I was getting my ass handed to me on a particular shot in a movie I did a few weeks ago.  I got together with Greg and told him where I was getting hung up and he had me straightened out in no time.  Greg is a great teacher and I recommend his services highly to anyone wanting improve any aspect of their operating.

I recently started taking steadicam lessons from Greg and couldn't be happier. He is patient and will work with you at whatever level you're at whether you're a seasoned pro or a beginner who wants to learn how to operate. I'd recommend him to anyone who wants to learn steadicam.
