Little Duck Forge

I recently had the opportunity to photograph Lucille Scott (aka The Iron Maiden) working at her blacksmiths forge in the Eastney area of Portsmouth, Hampshire (UK). Lucille, who trained at the Hereford College of Technology, is one of the very few female blacksmiths (if that is the sex-appropriate word) working in the United Kingdom. She produces bespoke ironwork both for architectural use and as works of art, as well as teaching her craft.

About Gerry Walden

I am a stock photographer with far more years of experience than I would care to mention. Located in Southampton (UK) I am sandwiched between two national parks and my home town is a major seaport. I shoot mostly people related images, and travel when I can. I am resident photographer at a major concert venue in the town which means I get to shoot a variety of musicians.
