Testimonials from our Glidecam School Graduates:

“I used the Glidecam x10 vest/arm combo and the HD4000. Being a traditional photography studio we are naturally moving with the technology and embracing the HD-DSLR video capabilities of this new generation of cameras. The class was great and Scott was an excellent teacher. Thanks again!”

– Cory Starr, signature photographer and owner of: The Memory Journalists Dynamite Weddings

I realized better techniques from existing methods.

I would have never figured it out!

It put mind at ease at knowing the exact and proper way to set up, balance and fly the rig.
