Your success means a lot to us. We are committed to serving you face to face or over the internet, and are always happy to take the time to go over the process with you and answer your questions. When you call us, you will be talking to the technician/artist who will do your work, not a salesperson. It is a one-on-one experience which allows us to get to know your art and understand what it means to you.

Still River Editions remains under the direction of co-owners, Mark Savoia and Cathy VanariaMark has been printing black & white since 1965 and color since 1981, while Cathy has been printing black & white since 1979.

For digital prints, a major part of being able to make a great print is being able to see and discern subtle differences in contrast and colors. Mark's experience and skill are evident in the work he produces. He is dedicated to his craft of printing photography and fine art.

For traditional prints, Cathy's darkroom experience in producing thousands of black & white prints over the years led her to printing for some of the top photographers in the world.

Still River Editions has over 15 years experience in fine art digital giclée print making, and over 30 years in the traditional photographic and fine art printing industries since its inception in 1987 as Connecticut Photographics.

Why are called Still River Editions?

The Still River flows behind our location in downtown Danbury, CT. The Still River has played an important role in the city’s famous hat industry and lore, and is now a symbol of both change and persistence. We are located on the spot where the Beckerle Hat Factory stood before in 1885 when most of it burned to the ground, a small section remains. Our current parking lot is filled with bricks from the original building used as fill.
