Amy Steigbigel

Associate Director for Arts and Communications/Marketing and Sales Careers
Amy advises students interested in arts, communications, marketing, and sales.

Most recently, I was an advisor at Colby College in arts and communications. Previously, I was a senior executive in the commercial and fine art photography and advertising industries, I offer 23 years of valuable professional experience. The key leadership positions I have held in New York City include VP of Creative & Content Acquisitions at Gallery Stock, Director of Photography at Getty Images, Director of Photography at Details Magazine and Co-Founder of Wallspace Gallery in Chelsea. 

I have moderated and participated on panels at major industry events such as the PDN Photo Plus EXPO and the DMLA Conference in New York and presented photographic lectures at Parsons and the School of Visual Arts and several key, global photographic events. I hold an MFA in Photography and Related Media from The School of Visual Arts in New York City with a focus on theory, criticism and exhibition curation. Additionally, I possess BA in English with a minor in Spanish from The College of Wooster in Ohio. My special interests have been mentoring and fostering the careers of emerging and mid-career fine-art and commercial talent and small business brand development.  

I'm a native New Yorker currently living in Falmouth, Maine. When I'm not working, I'm out exploring the beauty of Maine, hiking, cross country skiing, gardening, knitting, cooking and reading.
