    Story

    Hello JustGiving!

    My name is Mhairi & I am an Edinburgh based portrait & documentary photographer.

    I am currently working on a new project & I am looking for some funding to help me create the project.

    First of all, let me give you an idea of where this project stemmed from & what I hope to achieve with it.

    In just one week, I photographed two women who said that the photoshoot had helped their confidence; one being affected by cancer, the other by bullying. This got me thinking about women who have, for one reason or another, lost their confidence or their sense of self. I believe that I have the skills to help make a difference to more women feeling this way.

    So, I am linking up with charities which help women living with cancer, child loss, abuse, poverty & other issues affecting women to help me find sitters who are open to sharing their story. I will create a portrait of them which I hope will make them feel beautiful, no matter what they have been through. I will gather several of the portraits & eventually host an exhibition of the portraits in Edinburgh. I hope that these portraits will not only help the women I have photographed, but also women viewing this project who may be able to relate to some of the stories.

    In 2016, I created a similar body of work called FLUX, celebrating the diversity of teenagers in Scotland. This body of work recently won an award & it was fantastic to achieve such recognition for my work, and for the young people involved.

    To give you an idea of my work, you can see the project here: http://www.mhairibellmoodie.com/flux

    I intend to photograph 30 women and donations made will contribute to the cost of the photoshoots. All donations are greatly appreciated!

      A huge thanks to everyone who's donated within the last 24 hours - collectively you've added £90 to my campaign! There's just 24 hours left and any extra money raised will really help me make this project special. I currently have 14/30 women on board and my first shoot is next week. Please help me tell their stories xxx

      In the last week, I have met women who have been sexually assaulted, faced addiction, survived cancer and overdoses and so much more. The aim of this project is to tell their stories. Can you help me make it happen? I'm so grateful to every £1 donated, thank you for all of the support so far.
