ARK Productions was created by Ainsley Kellar.


Ainsley graduated from New York University's Tisch School of the Arts in 1992 and began a career in production in 1998 at KAJ-TV, the local CBS station in Kalispell, MT after years of work in front of the camera. 

Ainsley ran the production department at KAJ-TV singlehandedly until venturing out in November of 1999
to establish ARK Productions

In a mere two years of operation the client roster ballooned to a whopping 97 businesses!
Ainsley maintained these clients through an absolute determination to provide an outstanding product for every client by developing effective and memorable ads produced in lightning turn-around time, 
while continually keeping a steady eye on their budgets.
 
Since establishing ARK Productions in Cincinnati in December of 2001, ARK has produced ads for well over 200 clients. 

Other Good Stuff...

Ainsley’s photography has been featured in 50+ gallery exhibits.

~Two of her photos won the Learning Through Art 2010 Kroger Cincinnati Snaps competition.


Her image, "Trust", was selected in September of 2010 as an online National Geographic Daily Dozen pick.

In June of 2012, Ainsley was the winner of a Purchase Award during Art Design Consultant’s opening night awards ceremony. Their presenting sponsor purchased her capture, “Joining The Ladies At The Local Gossip Spot”.

In the fall of 2012, "Trust" won the Frame Cincinnati photo contest and was one of 50 chosen from thousands of entries to be prominently displayed in the Atrium at the Public Library downtown in conjunction with the citywide Fotofocus Extravaganza.

On April 5th, 2013, Ainsley was the inaugural Rising Star award winner, presented to her by the Cincinnati Chamber Orchestra for Arts Excellence and Advocacy.

In May of 2013, three of Ainsley’s photos were featured during the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra’s performances of Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Jennifer Higdon’s piece All Things Majestic.  Her photos were shown as part of an animated slide show of iconic Cincinnati images on a screen suspended above the orchestra.  

For the second year in a row, Ainsley’s work was chosen for showcase in the Art Comes Alive 2013 Final Exhibit. Her photo submission, “Psychedelic Scent”, ranked in the top 10% of all art works that were entered that year. Ultimately, "Psychedelic Scent" won a 2013 Purchase Award.

Ainsley's work, "Ava By The Window" was a finalist in a contest hosted by PDN magazine and was featured in their November 2013 issue and was exhibited at the 2013 PDN PhotoPlus Expo in New York, as seen by 23,000 attendees!

~ On Sunday, February 2, 2014, Ainsley was featured (along with one of her photos) in an article that ran in the Cincinnati Enquirer regarding an exhibit at Brazee Street Studios. 

In the fall of 2016, several of Ainsley's images were showcased in three invitation-only FotoFocus venues; the YWCA downtown, Xavier University and Art Beyond Boundaries. Her works received rave reviews.
