Welcome to Fire and Light Gallery!

Fire and Light is a gallery highlighting the blacksmith work of Glen Bryant and the photography of Chuck Almarez. During the day, we run a herd of Boer Goats, Angus-Gelbvieh cattle, and a bunch of horses on Lost River Farm in Iron Gate, VA. After hours (and in our spare time) Glen beats iron on his forge and Chuck spends too much time taking pictures in and around the Alleghany Highlands . The work on this site represents some of those lost hours.

To find out more about each of us go to the Menu and click on Blacksmithing or Photography. You can navigate around this website by using the buttons at the upper left.
