If you haven’t already, check out The Mentalist on CBS. The operating is absolute poetry, and reason enough to watch the show. Taj Teffaha appears to be the only operator credited. Kudos to him. If any others have worked on it, kudos to them as well.

Hey Allan,
Thank you so much for the props.
The other operators have been Norman Langley, who retired late season one. That's when I bumped up from "B" op/steadi and became "A" op/steadi. Bela Trutz, Josh Medak, Charles Papert, Stephen Sheridan, Steve Smith and now currently Dominic Nepolitano. All lead by our illustrious leader, D.P. Geary Mcleod. Second unit operator has been for the most part Micheal Stumph. Season two for a some episode D.P. Micheal Goi.
Cheers and happy to hear you enjoy the show.

P.S. humbled that my buddies, who also do steadicam, are willing to come out and play with us: Bela, Charles, Micheal.

Hi Taj and everyone
I was watching your show last night .(in Australia)
The story line Patrick and the team investigate a cult (scientology)like religious group that may be connected to a murder.
In one scene Patrick walked in on Malcolm McDowell caractor as they were shooting a commercial for the cult shot by a steadicam operator moving around this stage .
Nice Cameo was that you? He was an operator not an extra.
I would just like to add to everyone else All the ops on this show are of a very high standard.well done.
