Thanks for your time first of all!

As Stephen pointed out the week-long SOA workshops are top rated, been there and I recommend them highly. Tiffen also runs week-long workshops in the LA area with many of the same instructors, also top-rated and recommended. You'll spend about $3500 with travel, food, lodging and workshop fees for the week. PRO-GPI runs a great weekend workshop in the Spring.

Another option if you're just starting out is the two-day Steadicam Flyer workshops put on by Tiffen and taught by Peter Abraham, who is an excellent instructor. That workshop costs $500.

Frankly, I've yet to hear anyone speak poorly about any of the various workshops; it's really a group of very dedicated and experienced operators who love to share their knowledge.

Good luck!
