Rick Young's Blog
Rick Young has worked in television and video production since the late 1980’s and is a committed Mac fanatic, using Apple technology for all his professional post-production work. Rick's introduction to Apple was with a Lisa before the Mac even existed, and since then has worked on Macs exclusively. He considers himself lucky to be able to get paid for what he loves to do - shoot and edit.
