I worked for Restrained Elegance on my recent tour down south and have to say it has to be one of the best sites I've work for by a long shot!
I also had the pleasure of working with both Hywel and Joceline.
Hywel is SO professional and has amazing skills as a photographer, knowing exactly what he wants. He is also very kind and accommodating and gave me lunch whilst I was there.
Joceline was a perfect assistant/rigger. I had such a laugh with her and some of her rope ideas were amazing!
All in all working with them both is incredibly creative and kept interesting throughout. Not once did the day drag and I was shocked when I realised we were finished!
You are respected throughout and they always make sure you aren't in any discomfort.
100% recommended. I can't possibly recommend them enough to be honest!
Would definitely love to work with them again!
Had an absolute awesome three-day location shoot in Stoke with Hywel and Joceline it wasn't that far from me which was good- and the location was beautiful stayed over.. and they treated me amazing as always, didn't want to go back home :(
They are both a complete pleasure to work with, they make me smile/laugh we always have fun they make me feel 110 percent comfortable I LOVE shooting with them!!
Thank you thank you once again.. :)
Had my second shoot for restrained elegance today, but this time had the pleasure of working with Hywel and Joceline! They are both so lovely and make you feel comfortable as possible. The full day shoot didn't drag at any point as I was being kept on my toes by their creative ideas! They also catered to my vegan diet for lunch and made sure I was watered and happy throughout the shoot. Hywel is a talented photographer with great ideas and Joceline is a wonderful rigger/assistant!
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone and would love to work with them again. Thanks for a great shoot!
I worked with Hywel recently for his site Restrained Elegance & I can honestly say it was one of the best shoots Ive ever done. He & Joceline were wonderful hosts and put me up for 2 nights feeding and welcoming me. I felt very safe around them both. Hywel is very easy to get along with, very very professional & knows exactly what hes doing which is amazing to work with as you just have to think about what your doing nothing else! Hywel is extremely talented and I was honesly surprised seeing the images and videos back I couldnt belive how good they were. 100% efficiency for communication, organisation, planning and accomodating me. Thanks Hywel, Cant wait until next time. Tillie xxx
In had the pleasure of being booked by Hywel and Joceline to shoot for Restrained Elegance and other sites.
I really enjoyed the shoot and would thoroughly recommend them to any models unsure about doing a shoot.
He and Joceline were absolutely professional, so well organised, friendly and considerate- they really made it easy for me. We had a great laugh and they had some really great ideas when it came to the sets and the ties.
They are very hospitable hosts and make a great photographic team.
I really hope to work with them again,
