I finally had the pleasure of shooting with Hywel and Jocelin for there amazing website restrained elegance and I must say, they lived up to there great reputation. Hywel had really good pre communication the shoot was very well organised, they both were extremely professional yet fun, chatty and made me feel completely at ease as I hadn't done much bondage before but I felt completely relaxed and trusted them entirely.

other than how good the shoot was they are most probably the loveliest and nicest couple I have ever met! :D HIGHLY recommended to all models.

Thank you

I finally got to model for Hywel and Restrained Elegance this week and it was ace! He gave me super clear instructions on what to bring and where to travel, everything was arranged very efficiently. Hywel is superfun and a great photographer, I've seen some of the previews and they look great. He also gives good direction too as well as letting me ad lib with my own ideas. All in all a fabulous day with plenty of tea and yummy food to hand. I'd definitely recommend him and work with him again!

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 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,

I shot for Hywel's site today with his assistant Steve. Both photographers were present and were friendly and welcoming. Steve was great to work with, very professional and I felt comfortable working with him. Really enjoyed the shoot, the time flew by and it was a nice change doing bondage.

My shoot yesterday with Hywel was great fun. Hywel is polite, professional and a gentleman. We worked hard shooting 9 sets but I didn't feel pushed to the limit (unlike other shoots for websites!) plus I was treated to lunch! I would definately recommend him as a photographer and urge everyone to have a look at his work. Had a great day, thanks Hywel

I took part in one of Hywel's workshops at his 'Restrained Elegance' studio. His skill and enthusiasm for his work is already well known, but what impressed me most was the generous way he shares his knowledge and experience with others. Highly recommended.
