Welcome to Lightbulb & Star

If you told me when I left school that I would become an image editor and a writer, I would not have believed you. I spent the first two years of my life outside of school working in a dirty old petrol station as a shop assistant - it wasn't pleasant, and it didn't pay well, but it was the first time I had earnt money in my life.


I then managed to get a job with a wonderful local photographer. I assisted them at weddings and helped out with admin in the office, and with their support and guidance, I launched my first business, KC Freelancing, which has now grown into what you see today - Lightbulb & Star.

Image editing is something they definitely didn't teach me in school. Still, with over four years worth of editing experience, it is not only something that I have learned to be good at (not to toot my own horn) but also something that I LOVE to do.


And as for writing, well... I have loved writing and stories since I can remember. From copying out book passages into a beloved notebook for later reading, writing my own stories about fairies and monsters, and everything in-between. I do believe there is a certain magic in stories and carefully selected words.


I hope that you will be able to take full advantage of what we have to offer here at Lightbulb & Star - and I look forward to hearing from you.


I hope you'll come on this journey with me.
