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

As well as writing, I’m also a portrait photographer and have experience as a theatre producer, podcast host and video editor.

How Many Stars was founded in 2015 as a home for film and music reviews, indulging all of my own arbitrary star ratings, during my time at university. Now, it shelters all 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 if you must know – there are approximately 1 billion trillion stars in the universe. Honestly.
