Five Questions

This is the eighth 5Q interview for Seal Club, featuring
Dave Shea of mezzoblue.

  1. What are you most proud of?

    I’m a fairweather photographer. I recently bought more camera than I
    know what to do with. I had to justify it somehow. I shot my aunt’s
    wedding on a vinyard in British Columbia’s wine country a few months
    back. I showed her the gallery the other day. Her comment: “We’re
    absolutely blown away. Every picture is just so full of life, the set
    really captures the moments of the day.” That was cool to hear, I guess
    I’m getting the hang of it.

  2. From your experiences living in Canada, can you provide some tips for dealing with the great spring igloo thaw?

    Here in Vancouver, which is really just San Francisco north when you
    think about it, the temperatures never get cold enough for igloos in the
    first place. What’s like ice, but doesn’t melt? Glass! So we live in
    these great glass buildings instead, which for some reason never have
    air conditioning.

  3. Puppies or kittens?

    I don’t even like veal, okay?

  4. Who or what influenced you the most growing up?

    A mustachioed italian plumber, his brother, and a few of their Mushroom
    Kingdom friends.

  5. Given a 24 hour time constraint, how would you spend $1 million?

    1. Cessna & flight lessons.
    2. Island home in the Bahamas.
    3. Pre-pay a lifetime supply of cerveza.
