I’m running with Jacob Hinmon and his crew to shoot a video for Schoolhouse Electric Supply Co. We’re at Schoolhouse’s new space, an expansive, brick, five-story building on NW Nicolai Street. The first floor houses a show room where their iconic reproduction, glass-blown lighting is displayed alongside their new home decor items. We haul our equipment up wooden stairs to the second floor where, surrounded by white and yellow painted brick and ancient wooden beans above, a fervent assembly department and textile design team work.

We film owner Brian Faherty in his office. He’s wearing Alden wingtips and a button-up flannel. Light from big windows spill onto a turntable, a vintage lime couch, and light fixture designs pinned to the wall.

Brian tells us the story of how Schoolhouse Electric came into existance:

 

Jacob has become known for documenting several stylish businesses in Portland, starting back when he produced the Winn Perry video, and I will post what he and photographer Kelly James (right) produce next.
