Judgment Calls:

Marriage to Mary Jane Ansley.

Employing a Chocolate lab and expecting any work to get done!

What flowers to plant each year in the garden Studio.



My father and fellow photographer, John H. Ansley.


True Confessions:


The most important lesson you’ve learned: Quality will always prevail!


What do you like about doing business in Devon and Berwyn:

The Studio was started in Wayne in 1945 and moved to Devon in 1960 where it has always enjoyed a vibrant business climate and friendly community.  It even has a pretty Christmas Tree provided and nourished by the Berwyn Veterans Association.


Person most interested in meeting (can be any time in history) and why: George Washington.  Washington knew what had to be done and got it done despite the carping of others.


Et Cetera:


Award/honor you are most proud of: US Army parachute wings


Most influential Book to you: The Power of One by Bryce Courteney


Favorite Movie: Casablanca


Favorite Restaurant: Tiramisu in Berwyn


Favorite Vacation Spot: Lake Dunmore, Vermont


Any other thoughts/stories or comments you would like to include (again can include specials/sales/new products/etc):


I am always willing to work with anyone’s face.  Don’t keep putting off having a professional portrait of yourself and your loved ones created.  Time moves on and, while my retouching skills will work miracles, you know what happens!

In addition to the above, Jack is a member of the board of the Berwyn Devon Business and Professional Assoc. plus the local Veterans Assoc. He and his camera are also at most local events, shooting away. That little red house on rt. 30 in Devon is a local landmark.
