Want to upgrade my stuff!
Andre of Astoria is the first one you'll meet and you can't miss him, you have to go past him in order to get to Sen's Fortress and Darkroot Basin. He sorts you out with normal, divine, raw and occult upgrades when given the right embers and also sells you the kits so that you can do regular upgrades yourself at the bonfire.
Rickert is potentially the first blacksmith you'll find if you do some exploring at the fireshrine. He's in a prison cell window in New Londo Ruins, you get to New Londo by going down the stairs from the Fireshrine bonfire then down the lift and out the doorway, go down all the ruined stairs where all the passive hollows are and go off to the right where you'll see a hollow laying on its side. Go down the slope and he's there. He does magic and enchanted upgrades.
The Giant Blacksmith is in Ando Londo in the cathedral. Go to the top of the cathedral and go out of the smashed stained glass window and drop down to the right, follow the ledge around then drop down behind the railings and fight the gargoyles. you'll see the Giant Blacksmith through the door. Remember to unlock the door in the railings so that you can access the blacksmith from outside later. He upgrades boss soul weapons and so is probably the most important blacksmith in the game. He also upgrades to crystal, lightning and demon if you give him the related embers.
Vamos is hidden pretty well in the catacombs and you have to find a secret entrance before you find him and he opens a more direct route to get to him. Very hard to explain, here's a video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Lf3b_nqpO4
He upgrades to fire and chaos weapons if you have the embers.
