My name is Ella Kemp and I am a writer, photographer, and podcaster based in London. I work on an international scale as a freelance culture journalist.

How Many Stars was founded in 2015 as a home for film and music reviews, indulging all of my own arbitrary star ratings. Now, it shelters a curated selection of my work, from journalism to photography with a bit of podcasting in between. To catch all of my most up-to-date star ratings, you can follow me on Letterboxd here.

There is a high chance I do want to work with you – get in touch at or on social media.

And, by the way, there are approximately 1 billion trillion stars in the universe. Honestly.
