We are Ted and Susan Axelrod, a photographer and writer who met while working for a magazine — Susan was reviewing restaurants and writing food features, Ted was photographing them. When we no longer had the opportunity to collaborate on a regular basis, we started Spoon & Shutter as a way to keep doing what we love, together. After having lived for many years in Northern New Jersey, Portland Maine is finally home. When we’re not working, cooking, traveling, or hanging out with our two cool dogs – Ella and Dixie – we’re having a blast exploring this spectacular state.
