ART DIRECTOR/ CREATIVE
Stella Cooper wants to do good. Taking that fuzzy, post-graduation uncertainty in her stride with the creation of Ms. Pam, Stella knows that nothing worthwhile ever comes easy, and that the best skills are gained when directly responsible for something in the professional creative industry.
Stella graduated from RMIT in 2019 with a Bachelor of Communications (Advertising), and that fancy piece of paper has afforded her the ability to think critically and creatively about her work, all the while remaining ambitious and pushing boundaries. She has professional experience working with slow-fashion brand Bye Bambi, where she was responsible for much of the brands content creation, graphic design, social media, shoot production and styling.
Stella’s impressive suite of skills are supported by her knowledge of much of Abobe suite, using applications like Photoshop, Premiere Pro, Illustrator and InDesign to assist with her creation of videos, graphics and branding. She has a meticulous eye for detail, and won't rest until every shade of green has the exact same hex code.

Stella has learnt the rules, and is ready break them. She is on top of cultural trends, but is keen to push the boundaries to produce innovative, unique content. She’s a problem solver, and is keen to roll up her sleeves and do whatever it takes to get the job done, whether that means holding the reflector on set or staying up till the wee hours to export the video that needs posting in the AM. If she isn’t the embodiment of an all-rounder creative, I don’t know what is.
A woman of many angles, Claire is a hardworking shutterbug that allows herself to shoot a multitude of subjects and fields with the highest of quality and creativity.
While finishing her Bachelor of Arts (Photography) at RMIT in 2019, Claire also completed a mentorship at the international production and photography agency, Sam I Am, led by commercial photographer Billy Plummer, where she experienced the joys of working within a collaborative and professional team. Claire was able to not only showcase her understanding of the nuts and bolts of photography but also how to translate theoretical ideas.
Claire is a true-blue people person who can not only communicate a message through her work but through her divine social skills, at the same time ensuring everyone on shoot is on the same page and ready to roll. Her knowledge and use of professional equipment is sound and works with her expertise of both digital and film photography (cause we know that stuff ain’t easy!).
Trying on some different hats this year with the beginnings of Ms. Pam, Claire has also delved into the crazy world of social media, allowing herself to use her work as a tool to feature alongside copy and creative editing.

A real go-getter, Claire is determined to smash the stereotype of the lonely photographer, Claire’s cup of creative juices is always full to the brim.
As a multidisciplinary designer, Maddie Clark isn’t afraid to dip her toes into unknown creative realms. With a ‘can do’ attitude and over 1.5 years of industry experience behind her, Maddie is always thriving to enhance her creative skillset and will never stop until all elements of her designs are met with extreme precision.
Maddie graduated from Monash University in 2018 with a Bachelor of Design, specialising in publication design, art direction (film) and also branding. Even though she couldn’t tell you the names of any of her tutors, since finishing her degree, she’s made up for lost time with significant hands-on industry experience.
From developing cookie packaging designs for a health food company, to becoming head of creative for international magazines ‘The Modern Day Living’ and 'INFLUENCED Magazine’, Maddie feels adept to take on new challenges, even though she’s still unable to properly use the pen tool on illustrator.
Maddie thrives working in a fast-paced, collaborative and team environment, however, also works well independently from home, with a good cult documentary on in the background… or dare I say Shrek The Third?

ACCOUNTING/ MARKETING WIZZ
Finishing her degree in accounting from RMIT, Laura found herself working in a profession that didn’t quite fit her desire to for self expression and creativity in her career. Working in an accounting firm she loved some aspects, yet grew apart from the rigidity of her discipline. She pivoted, moving to a beauty tech company at the start of 2020 and trying her hand in multiple roles including brand marketing and commercial sales.
She has been able to work on product campaigns, commercials, packaging design, artwork, copy writing and new product launches which she has used to help her assist the Ms. Pam team to build even further.
Joining Ms. Pam she has combined her love of numbers and passion for customer experience to focus on product design, business structure and financials. She has found it super rewarding to be involved in a project from the ground up and has found new inspiration to embrace her own creativity.
Zane Friedler is a Sydney based photographer who has completed a Bachelor of Visual Arts and Design. He is most prominently known for his major work, ‘its not going to be alright, not for me; she’s gone’ which explored grief and loss through memory.
On completion of studying at ACU, Zane has travelled abroad, as far as Asia and Europe has developed a new perspective in seizing the moments. Film photography is the main medium used throughout the artist’s practice as the images give an archival aesthetic creating an intimate relationship with the viewer .
In Friedler’s practice he portrays a sort of romanticism with dark nostalgia. With the current influences of many Australian subcultures and urban landscapes the artist captures the everyday through the lens in a documentary style. From shooting mates skateboarding to editorial photography the artist frequently employs a multilayered perspective in the world we live in.
